The Christmas season is coming and I have always been wanting to buy an IEM that has good quality sound.

I need help choosing a perfect IEM for me, but with the vast market and changing prices, it is very difficult to

find the perfect IEM. I've been looking up reviews, streaming shopping sites, and i looked at the major IEM threads on Headfi.

So here is my criteria that i hope you guys can give me recommendations with:

 

- no more than $200! If it is worth it I may add at most 30 dollars more

 

-universal IEM (obviously) 

 

-Good to great comfort (They will be used for long periods of time)

 

-Good Microphonics

 

- a good helping of soundstage and instrument separation (for an IEM)

 

-bass is present, impactful, and tight but NO BLEED into the mids

 

-prominent mids that are lush and smooth

 

-highs with clarity and good extension

 

Style and brands aren't a big deal for me, but I will need a form factor that works for the wire to go over the ear.

I will be using a fiio e11 (most likely) or some other mid range amp (yet to be decided)

I listen to classic rock, alternative, house electronic, dubstep, and classical. (a little rap)

Some IEM's I have been looking at include:

 

TDK BA-200 ~$150 on amazon

Westone 3~ $180 on amazon

Earsonics sm2 v2~ 180 on amazon

Hifiman RE400~ $100 on most sites

Vsonic GR07 MK2~ $180 on amazon

Vsonic GR07 bass edition~ $180 on amazon

Shure SE 215~ $100 on amazon

Vsonic VC1000~ $160 on amazon

 

Please leave recommendations with website to them below -->       :etysmile:THANK YOU FOR THE HELP:etysmile:
