looking for IEMs, $150-200 max budget, mostly hip-hop/electronic

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

alright, i'm looking for some good IEMs. durability is a must, my last IEMs were ortofon eq-7 which were abysmal in the build. RIP 4-20-2013 - 8-20-2013

 

a removable cable is highly desired, but not completely necessary.  if it does not have a removable cable a good warranty is required (should i purchase a seperate warranty)

 

here are some examples of what i listen to:

what i've been looking at

 

shure se-215 (but are they good value?)

triple fi 10 (will they be on sale this year?)

gr07 (supposed to be amazing, but cable is fixed and not sure about warranty)

 

edit: i usually store them wrapped around my mp3 player (clip) if that helps

I'll recommend the following:

 

  1. Vsonic GR07BE
  2. T-Peos H-100 (2 year warranty)
  3. T-Peos H-200 ($250 - 3 year warranty, removable cables)
  4. Dunu N1000
  5. TDK BA200

 

 

Or check these threads for comparisons:

Interested in those T-Peos, what about MDR-7550 for 179 I heard the H-200 compares to those.

I haven't tried the MDR-7550 but for $179, it sounds like a good price. I have the T-Peos H-100. I really don't like it's V shaped signature (reviewers say they have the same signature as the TF10). I just ordered the GR07BE. I loved the GR07Mk2 when I auditioned them. I believe they come with 2 years warranty.
