I've only had two pairs of real IEMs, the Shure se210 & 425, and I loved them both. They both offer clean, detailed sound and great vocals, however recently I began to desire some more excitement - a thicker sound (although not by too much) - and a punchier bass.
Price Range: Around $500-$600
Detailed, balanced Mid-range
Natural, smooth, rich vocals
Solid, dynamic, defined bass
Very engaging, encompassing soundstage
Treble should not be sharp or intrusive at higher volumes
Genres I usually listen to:
Motown/funk, Soul, Classic Rock, 80's 90's Pop, Soft Rock, Adult contemporary
As an amateur music lover, I only play my music out of my old computer and iphone 4s, and my music files are usually not lossless. Oh the almighty Head-fi community, please help me - I'll be forever in your debt!
