Need an IEM for rap/hip-hop in the $100-150 range

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

- I own a DT 770 PRO 32 ohm, but I don't want to use it for portable reasons anymore
- Want something more bassy
- Past headphones include ATH-M50, V-Moda M100. Bass level should be around the same as the M100, maybe a bit less.
- I have a portable amp but I prefer to drive them directly from my iPod Classic
- I ordered the Monoprice 8320 for the timebeing, should get em sometime this week
- So far from my research, the VSonic GR07 Bass Edition and Shure SE215 seem to be the best
- What about the Klipsch x10, or Nuforce NE-700M?

Hi,

 

Yamaha EPH-100 is probably your best bet!

Does it come with many different tips? Reviews say they are uncomfortable and I have smaller ear canals.

They include 5 different sized earpads, a cable extension and a carrying case.

Thanks. Anyone else?

I would suggest the GR07BE anytime. Here's a comparison of a forummer who has both the GR07 and SE215:

 

I have both and the Shure don't even come close. The SE 215 are good for what they are, fun headphones for people that want a warm, not critical listening. They are outclassed by the V Sonics on pretty much everything, is not even a contest. In fact, they are not the best in their price bracket, and in fact even headphones that are cheaper, like the Dunu's Landmine, are better. Of course, personal preference plays a huge part in our selection, and you might prefer the Shure's sound signature. So they are not better but you might end up enjoying them more.

i'm afraid the gr07be won't be bassy or fun enough. my dt770's are my main reference critical listening cans. i need something that sounds fun and bassy for my commute. and i am reading mixed opinions about that.

I would consider the GR07Be  to be good in bass and a fun IEM. It's a lot better than my Tpeos H-100 and the all the rest of my other IEMs. Check out the GR07BE appreciation thread or ask the question there and check out the response.
