I have a question regarding an IEM pairing with the DX90. I have three on my short list:
1) Grado GR10
2) NuForce Primo 8
3) Westone W40
I'd like to purchase an IEM for wear while on the go with the DX90. My main headphones are currently the Grado RS-1i, and I love the Grado sound. I listen to about 80% classical music and 20% classic rock/folk/etc. My budget for this item is about US$500 or so, but I'd be willing to go a little higher for something truly earth-shattering.
I've always used over-ear headphones and I've never purchased an IEM, so this will be a new experience for me. Thanks in advance for your help! :)
I'm also looking for a good universal IEM with the DX90 since I sold my SE535's (didn't like the synergy with he DX50) earlier...
Other options in the same price category are:
I also used the DX90 most of the time with full size cans. Mostly the Grado PS500 and sometimes with the GS1000. But a few days ago I bought/received a LCD2 from a fellow headfi-er & now there's no way back...with the BH2 inbetween & the EQ on with some extra hights added it sounds like nothing I ever heard before...everything is there!
For IEM's it's probably gonna be the Dunu's or the Earsonics for me...still in doubt, but I'm not in a hurry.
Goodluck with making your right choice!
