IEM recommendation: unamped, warmth with clarity

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So far, I'm not wowed by my HiFiMan RE400s. The clarity and detail is there, the mids are great. The highs don't screech in my ears... but the low end is lacking. What are some good IEMs with great clarity and detail in the midrange, without harsh treble, but with more punch in the lows than the re400s?

My Sennheiser CX300-II with Comply T400 foam tips have the sort of low end punch and fullness I like, but it could be a little tighter, and definitely could use more clarity and presence in the mids.

Are there IEMs that could split the difference between these two? I've read good things about the Shure SE215 and MEElectronics A151. But I've read conflicting reviews as well.

I listen to a wide range of music. Rap/hip hop, r&b, rock/alternative, dub step, country, classical, opera, oldies, pop... I listen to mostly AAC and MP3 or CD rips, though my phone, iPod, sometimes straight off my laptop. Never any additional amplification.

I would like to stay as far under $200 as possible for now. Until I find sound signatures I know I will be very happy with.

Yea I'm not sure why people consider the RE-400 to be warm.  They're not warm in my book, actually somewhat cold sounding due to too much 2-3khz.
