Desiding what in ears to buy, today! help!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Ok, so today i get a 24 hours deal for the following in ears:

 

Nuforce ne-700x (dollars)

Nuforce ne-700x new & improved ( dont know if thats also the case with ne-700x) (80 dollars)

Philips Fidelio s1 (70 dollars)

Monster gratitude ( 70 dollars)

 

I look for an upgrade of my Dunu Tridents, i like a punchy but tight bass, and a slightly warm mid and treble, but not to warm.

 

Which should i consider the best, soundquality? pricewise?

All those prices seem normal or slightly expensive.

I know the prices on amazone are cheaper, but these ar in ears that i can buy directly in a shop from Holland, so nos shipping costs, and very fast delivery :)

I really hope someones can help me today with choosing the best, other in ears are also very welcom in this price range, but need to have the sound signature that i describe :)

You might try posting in the "Help and Recommendations" forum.  Recommendation threads in other sections of the site generally don't get a lot of attention.

 

My favorite IEMs under $100 are the HifiMan RE-400 BTW.

 

Also, take a look at Joker's massive IEM thread.  It's got 300 IEM reviews sorted by price.

From what i heard the the re-400 doesnt have a lot of bass power :(

Yes.  It's got great bass extension, but it's neutral as far as quantity.  It's actually slightly above neutral compared to the HifiMan RE-0 or Etymotics, but still definitely not a basshead 'phone.

 

I don't own any basshead IEMs, so I recommend reading the IEM thread or posting in the recommendations forum...
