hello, need help with new in-ears. ~$50 range, EDM/techno/hip-hop/rock usage

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

After browsing for the last few days, I've come up with more options than I know what to do with right now.

 

I'm replacing the stock headphones that came with my Sony MW-600 bluetooth headset, which I never had any issues with except the bass seemed slightly muddy from day 1.

 

75% of my music will be EDM.  Kaskade, Calvin Harris, Sweedish House Mafia, Deadmau5 and some Dubstep mixed in.

10-15% will be Hip-Hop.  A$AP, Jay-Z, Macklemore

10-15% will be Rock/Alternative/Pop.  Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, STP, Pearl Jam, etc.

 

With majority of listening being EDM, I am definitely a fan of bass but want a decent amount of highs as well.  I'm using them to commute, not as much running/etc.

 

After reviewing http://www.head-fi.org/t/478568/multi-iem-review-304-iems-compared-clear-tune-monitors-wls-5-added-12-05-13-p-818 , Klipsch S4i II and Senn CX 300 II's were the first couple I noticed, then along came the 100+ others.  Honestly there's so many to choose from I've kinda just stopped at those right now.

 

Any other recommendations in this price $ that would be a better option than those right now?

 

Thanks guys.

If you can up your budget to $130, you can get the Vsonic GR07BE. It has good bass without sacrificing the mids and the highs. For me, overall, the SQ has been fantastic.

Really wasn't looking to go quite that high.  Anything sub $100 that you'd throw in the mix that would be between what I'm looking at and those?

 

I've also started developing a bad habit of losing headphones over the last few months, so that's another reason I'm looking to have something more easily replaceable.

Have a look at the Vsonic VSD1 then. It's supposed to have 80% of the SQ of the GR07s but with 1/3 of the price. You can get them here for $45 with free shipping: http://www.lendmeurears.com
