I know theres a million threads about people asking what iem to get especially for around 100. I've done my research and as with many audio enthusiast its hard to make a decision based on reviews/ impressions alone.
I haven't kept up with iem's for about 2 years and as I grow older i need iem's for portable use. I am looking for around the ear iem's because normal fit earphones never work with my ear, so comfort is pretty high on my list. I have nailed it down to either westone 1, or audeo pfe 022 since people rave about comfort and sound quality on those. I would like a mic but a controller isnt necesarry.
As far as sound signature, I am a bit of a basshead, but honestly i do not need a bunch of bass as I have learned to love a flat response. I would like a WARM sound signature that has a big soundstage. My current headphones are ultrasone 580 and i love them so maybe that will help with showing what sound sig i'm into
I listen mostly to edm, big room house, minimal, deep, trance. But also a lot of hip hop, alternative stuff like radiohead, and rhcp.
In order of my preference Comfort comes first, sound quality second as these will mostly be on the go.
One last thing is about is about aesthetic. Im not looking for "fashion" phones but I defenitely don't want ugly, generic earphones. This isn't high on the list but is recommended.
Sorry about making ANOTHER thread but I appreciate your guys' opinion :)
edit: also if you guys still recommend the audeo pfe, im probably going to buy the black filters and some complys later on if that effects your guys recommendations also.
