After about 2 years my RE-0's left channel went out, and this time it appears it is for good :(
So now I am looking for a replacement, and while i was totally ok just getting another pair I see they discontinued them. So now I am back at square one, looking for new IEMs, but I realize that I just won't be able to try all of them. Which is where i need you!
I would guess my musical tastes are important, for the most part I listen to Electronic (Deadmau5, Daft Punk, Disclosure etc.), Some top 100 Stuff (Katy Perry, Lana Del Rey, Drake, Bastille, Foster the People), and some Rock / Metal (Boston, Metallica, Van Halen), also some slower relaxed stuff (The XX, Washed Out, The Chain Gang of 1974).
In general I like a warm sound, with a good amount of bass. Not a ton mind you, but I definitely would like more than my RE-0's had. I love the treble of the RE-0, but i feel the midrange was a bit recessed and the soundstage was a bit small. I also had major issues with the cable and fit of the RE-0's and would hope to get something better.
Right now I am looking at:
That list is quite short, and am wondering if there is some that I am missing. I would like to keep this under $200, but i suppose that can change. I plan on using these mainly on a phone (HTC One) but I do have a Fiio E17 that I use for my HD598's and could use. Would prefer no amp though.
So any ideas? Thanks in advance.
