IEMs for classical/cello that are fit for hard work?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I work at a welding and fabrication business and it is VERY loud. So isolation is #1 on my wish list.

#2 is sound,Accurate and balanced overall,with a little bit more bass presence than that on the high end for the cello.

#3 is durability. Like I said,metal shop. So it might get dinged from time to time.

Thanks in advance.

Is this the wrong forum to post questions/ask for recommendations about IEMs? Should I go to the help/recommendation forum?

The Help/Recommendations forum would be a better place for your question, but as I am online now, I can give some suggestions.

 

For isolation, you should look no further than Etymotic, depending on your budget they have various models.

http://www.etymotic.com/ephp/epcomp.html

 

The "HD Safety" model is specifically made for your work environment, it is reportedly to have the same sound as the Ety Kids 5 so you can look up reviews for that.  They should satisfy #1 and #2 but perhaps not on the bass, but if your audio player has an EQ function, then that may solve it.

 

There is also the Hifiman RE-400, it's bass is slightly above neutral but isolation will not be as good as the Etymotic, but still very good.

 

But no idea on #3 durability as I have not worked in a metal shop.

 

BTW, you should only bump your own thread once every 24 hrs if there is no reply from other users.
