I'm very new to this, so please bear with me with my limited knowledge on the earphones.
I've just decided it's time to get a nicer earphones/earbuds for myself to use for mostly at work and commuting time.
After browsing around I think $250 might be a good price point for me. I listen to basically all sorts of music, but I'm also a casual bass player, so many times I find myself listening to the bass sound a lot. One thing I'd also hope to have is the in-wire remote/mic since I will use this on my iPhone a lot.
I've just received an Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1000, and I'm finding the treble being a little too much while the bass seems to be weaker than expected.
So my questions is: do you have any suggestion for me to think about as an alternative at this price point? I'm open to most brands, but I'll admit that I care about the look a lot as well.
Or, should I let the CKS1000 run for a little longer to see if things would change? An article I read from Japan was saying that after 200 hours of run the sound had some amazing improvement.
I have a set of Shure SE215 sitting at home as well, so I'd appreciate some variety from your recommendations.
Brands that I've been thinking: Audio Technica, Sony, Sennheiser, Denon...of course if you have some better suggestion, please please recommend!
Thank you very much for your time, any comment would be greatly appreciated.
