Weird thread :) I know but you'll understand.
I have opened a tread a few months ago for bass heavy IEM recommendation for an EDM listener, me :) I decided to buy MH1C after recomendations, I loved it at first, but cable was really bad, and the volume was really low (with iphone). Then I left it in my pocket and it was washed in the washing machine. Then I bought many headphones, SE215, Etymotic, beyer dynamics mmx101, SE435 and couple more. Returned all of it. SE215 was a bit muddy, 435 was way so clear and not bassy enough, and unluckily MMX101 was defected (right earphone not working) when i opened the box. Then I took my 7 years old CX300 out of my drawer and realised that I really love this earphone, all of the earphones I bought afterward had better sound but while listening Electronic music, they are not "fun" at all. Beyer dYnamics was really good but IT was defected when it came to me, so either its a huge coincidence or built quality is not good.
While listening to classical music, etymotc is amazing. And for mid, shure was flawless. But Im mostly listening Trance and these earphones feels boring. With this earphones I feel like I have a Lamborghini but all I want is to do some offroad with some Toyota LandCruiser. I hate offroading with a lambo :)
Basically I decided I want to go with a earphone with a similar sound signature with CX300. iphone controls would be awesome. Please advise. I want it to be around 50-100 dollars.
