Ok, so I've decided to shell out some money for my first CIEM but there are waaayyy too many options, and with a budget of no more than $1200 I want to make the right choice. But I need your help.
I've read tons of reviews but I still can't make up my mind.
I need someone to convince me and understand what I'm looking for.
To make you understand what sound signature I like/prefer, I'll tell you the current gear I use;
What I been listening to music with for the past 2 years has bee the Grado RS1i headphone. So I guess I like this type of sound signature.
I've also been using TF10's whenever I'm on the move (outside) . So this sound signature appeals to me as well.
Since I lost my TF10's I got stuck with the Apple Earpods and I do dare say, I enjoy this sound signature as well.
Only sources I use;
My laptop and my IPhone 5.
I don't want to buy any other player in order to meet the needs of a ciem.
I need a ciem that can run out of my IPhone 5 without the need for external amplification.
Type of music I listen to;
A variety, pretty much anything except country and rock.
To be more specific, I mostly listen to ambient, electronic, hip-hop, drone and soundtracks (movie/ video game).
I hope this information helps in determining what CIEM would be suitable for me.
