Newcomer says hello and is asking for advice on IEMs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
First of all, hello biggrin.gif I'm Starbomba, an old-timer at OCN, but until recently i've been interested in improving my audio experience both for gaming and music, since my visual experience is now good. For now, all the guides i've been reading, while interesting, have been a bit over my head, but i'm still learning a lot, and hoping to learn more.

I'm looking for some IEMs to use for both gaming (15%) and music (85%) for when i'm on the road with my phone (Android) and/or my laptop. Gaming would be a not-so-important use, since i barely game (and when i game it's things like Beat Hazard or Vocaloid) so music would be the main use for them.

I'm not looking for an OVER 9000 experience from them (i have my Sennheiser 555 for that), but i need something that is more portable. My main music genres are rock (nothing like death metal or anything too bassy, mostly power metal), j-rock, some j-pop, and classical/instrumental music.

My budget for them is $80, but preferibly anything under $50 and on Amazon would be good. I have been reading Monoprices are good budget earphones, but i wanna know if there are any other decent options.

Back to question: I suggest Phonak Audéo 012, on Amazon they are for 90$ but on ebay you easy find for under 80$.

I suggest the HisoundAudio BA100. It has android remote functions and is new in the market with good reviews or check out this thread:
