Being so hard to sample all the IEM choices that are out there, I'm coming here for advice on replicating my experience with my Alessandro MS-1s (http://www.head-fi.org/products/alessandro-ms-1). I've been told they are similar to Grado SR80/125s if that helps. These are my first and only headphones, but I love them and would be elated to replicate their sound in IEMs. I enjoy their slightly beefed up low end but I really enjoy them for rock ballads as well, no complaints. Obviously I'm not looking for monitors and I'm a poseur audiophile, so please be kind. :p
- Looking for something around $50 or less
- Use Case for Airplane rides & the gym
- I am strongly consider DIY Custom Ear Pieces with Sugru or Radians custom molded earplugs. My last plane ride drove me nuts, I need a great seal & isolation.
