Need help finding the superior earphone for what I'm looking for.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

What I'm wanting to use them for:

Mainly looking for something I can game with. So an earphone that brings out all the little details and has a wide sound stage.

 

Budget ~$150

 

Some that I was looking at were the Shure se215, Westone 1/um1, or the Westone 3 (on sale at amazon for $170)

 

Thanks in advance, DerekT

 

P.S. I'm not using any amp or dedicated sound card but the onboard is the Realtek ALC898.

What might also need mentioning is that I already have a pair of headphones but I wanted something I can game, travel, and occasionally listen to music with.

The SE 215 is a little darker/bass-leaning than the Westone UM1. For your application, I think the W3 might be overkill - but I think it would be the most balanced. If I were you, I would probably save some bucks and get the SE215. None of these IEMs are going to have a wide soundstage - that's just not a strong point for an IEM.
