Neutral In-Ear for High-Quality Electronic Music <400€ (Black Friday Time Pressure :D)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

after spending the last two days mostly searching through deals and reading reviews I finally give up and turn to you for help.

After my Sennheiser IE7 (who were alright when i bought them but haven't really been fun for a while now) suffered from a broken cable I'm looking for new In-Ears.

I enjoy a rather analytical/balanced sound using old Heco Acterior 2000 (1989 studio monitors) and a AKG K550 with a Meridian Explorer mainly, which i both enjoy a lot though they could both be a little more detailed imho.

The In-Ears will also be driven by the Explorer or by my Nexus 5 which doesnt have the best sound quality whatsoever.

 

The music they will be used for mainly:

85% well produced electronic music: Trentemoller, Trifonic, Infected Mushroom, Morten Granau, Daft Punk, Bonobo, KOAN Sound, Peer Kusiv...

5% movie scores: Hans Zimmer, Yann Thiersen, Assassin's Creed OST...

5% HipHop: ediT, Eminem, Kanye, Jedi Mind Tricks

5% random stuff in varying quality

 

The emphasis should be on the sound of the headphones not adding a lot but instead detailing the music, just showing what's already in a great mix. I don't mind if badly produced music sounds bad. But I need those headphones to show me every little detail of a Trentemoller or Max Cooper song.

 

My price range goes up to 400€ = 540$. though many headphones are more expensive in germany.

What I've picked out so far are the following:

 

Westone 4 R (I can get them for 324€ with black friday deals so I would need a recommendation asap :D)

Shure SE 535 (380€)

Audeo PFE 232 (230€)

StreetLive 2 Customs (350€ including earprints)

CustomArt Music One (250€ including earprints)

 

I'd be happy about any help as soon as it is possible.

Please tell me bluntly if I have any misconceptions.

Sorry for my bad English, I'm not a native speaker as you can surely see.

Thanks in advance and thank you for taking some time for my request.

 

Best Regards,

Alex

In the first link, if you scroll to the left you can see all the IEMs which are rated 'analytical/balanced sound' and their respective scores and their price.
