I've been browsing the forums and different reviews for quite some time now whenever I need some new audio equipment.
And now again, I've been browsing the 300+ list of IEM's for the last couple of days, but still have trouble deciding.
I'm looking for a (new/first) pair of IEMs under the magical 50$/€ mark.
I've never really used IEMs and always stuck with my headphones. Currently own a pair of m50's which I truly love, amazing sound.
But they are a bit inconvenient, and I'm afraid bringing them with me where ever I go will result in them breaking. So before I get struck by a sudden downpour or something else happens to them I want a pair of decent IEMs.
Now if there wasn't so much choice this would be easy. But I'm blown away by the amount of IEMs in the price range I'm looking for.
So I come here asking for a helping hand and some information/personal experience.
I listen to a wide variety of music, from rock, indie, metal and post rock to classical, glitch and some japanese pop/rock.
I really want some good comfort for long listening periods. And durable as well.
The IEMs which currently interest me:
Rock-it sound r20
As you can see this is quite a list and they all seem to get good reviews.
Soundmagic is really the only one which is steadily available in my country (Netherlands). Resulting in having to buy the other IEMs from Amazon or Ebay.
Would it be worth going through the effort of buying it oversees for the other IEMs? Or are the 3 soundmagic great options as well?
If so which one would be best suited?
