Looking for IEM's detailization in OEM

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi all

I'm looking for a pair of full-sized headphones.

I have a pair of the brainwavz b2 and I'm really fond of how they sound. I feel pretty fine about their well-known cons with too much of the highs and too little of the lows, some EQ's tuning makes them good for me.

Also I have a pair of brainwavz hm5 - they are great for me in their neutrality, I'm not touching the EQ at all while I use them. I like how they fit on the head, especially that they are not actually touching ears when I put them on.
What I don't like in HM5 is that they are not enough detailed and it lacks me some brightness in comparison with B2. In b2 I can easily distinguish nearly every music instrument that is currently playing, with hm5 it turns to be a problem.

I perfectly realize that armature IEMs should be more detailed than dynamic OEMs while they are of almost the same price, but I'm ready to pay more (budget is $300-400).

I use ibasso dx50 as an audio source, fiio e17 as an amp and in music genres I prefer all sorts of rock, except the heaviest ones, instrumental, vocal. I'm not a great lover of strong bass, neutrality in sounding is the best for me. A large sound scene would be also great to have.

Would really appreciate your advices.
Thanks

The etymotic er4 are very well regarded(pretty much legendary) for their neutrality and hyper detail.

Sorry guys, probably that's my fault that I wasn't clear enough of what I'm looking for.

I'm absolutely happy with my current IEMs Brainwavz B2 but I want a good replacement for my full-sized headphones.

I would prefer they had brightness and detailization comparable to what I have with B2

Beyerdynamic DT880. Sounds like that's pretty much what you want.

Yeah, I've read a couple of reviews and they really look like what I need. Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to use them because they're semi-open. I'm often listening to music while being not the only person in the room, the others won't be happy to listen to the same than I do:)

 

I'm starting to get an impression that I'm too demanding in my wishes but I still hope I'll be able to find smth among the whole variety of the headphones
