Those are my equipment.. I want something that will sound good even without the DAC/amp..but then also a very good pair when with them..
Here is a great deal on some Sony XBA-40 IEMs. 4 Balanced Armatures in each ear for $149 here in our classifieds. They're selling for $239 on Amazon at the moment. They look to be in good condition and come with the box and some extra tips as well. Check them out?
monster gratitude is an awesome iem at a price of 60 dollars. To me the best bang for the buck iem right now.
Vsonic GR07 (normal or bass edition) are also great but their isloation is not the strongest. Good enough to me for commuting but be aware of that. They also seem to have been out of stock lately, not sure why. Maybe try after chinese new year or look for one on sale from the forums
Sony XBA 3 is also another great iem. Comes with mic or without mic, and you can find them around 120-150 i believe.
Those are a few that pop in my head. There are definitely others to look into though.
There are a pair of VSonic GR07 MKII in the FS Forums right now for $120 "Like New".
Here's another great deal, Westone 3 for $160. CHEAP!
