IEMs similar to Audeo Phonak PFE 022

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I've previously owned a pair of Audeo Phonak PFE 022s.  Unfortunately, I lost them (or had them stolen) at the airport while traveling last month.

 

I loved pretty much everything about them, and was pretty bummed when they came up missing.  I had a pair of the grey filters and found that one thing I really missed was the amount of bass the green filters provided.  It wasn't overwhelming, but it had a good amount of quantity and quality.

 

I'm toying with the idea of simply purchasing another, since I already know I like them, but I figured I'd poke around to see if anyone has any other suggestions.

 

I'm not a major audiophile by any means, but I love music, and appreciate quality sound.  A couple things I've realized about my tastes over the past couple years that may be helpful:

 

- I do prefer warmer sound signatures

- I've grown fond of the over-the-ear cabling

- I'm fairly prone to fatigue when highs are too pronounced

- I do enjoy a good amount of bass, probably more than an 'accurate' listener, but I don't want my ear drums to shatter

- A Mic was a pretty handy feature to have for hands-free operation while driving

 

Around $100 is my budget.

 

Thanks!

 

P.S. I'm also just realizing that Phonak no longer makes IEMs, so I may be looking at obtaining a used pair if I decide to stand pat.
