Rha MA600i or Klipsch s4i or any other?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I'm after a new pair of in-ear headphones but unsure which to get.

 

I've read a fair amount about the two mentioned but unsure which to get if any? My budget is around £60 (~ $100) and the requirement of a microphone isn't a necessity (Have an android phone too).

The downside to these I've read is a little bass heavy.

While I listen to many bass heavy genres like drum and bass and many other edm genres I also frequently listen to Classical music.

 

I've previously had the Soundmagic E10M which were nice great but the build quality was shocking. Another important factor for a new pair I might add.

Anyone have any insight to whether these two any decent or whether to go for another pair?

If you can up the budget to $130, you can get the Vsonic GR07. The SQ is fantastic and they are well built. Or else for $45 you can get the Vsonic VSD1, it has 80% of the SQ of the GR07 with 1/3 the price. Klipsch s4i's bass is supposedly muddied.

RHA would be a much better choice. Klipsh S4 is really just not a good earphone...

 

are you looking for more bass? What do you listen to?

Thanks for the recommendation but I really dislike over ear headphones.

I predominantly listen to more bass music (edm) but also like classical so wouldn't want the bass to be too overpowering.

Yamaha EPH-100 might be too bassy for classical but they generally fluctuate around 100 on amazon if you wanna look out for those too.

 

Philips Fidelio S1 is another contender

I've read that the build quality on the Philips are pretty shocking to say the least and after going through 3 pairs of soundmagic e10m I'd rather buy something that'll last. Shame as I have heard they are pretty good.

 

Yamaha look like interesting ones, will have to look more into them. Thanks.
