I understand there have been similar threads and I have also read Joker's IEM reviews.However, I still can't seem to decide which of the following is best for me. I hope you guys can give me your opinions as well as the reason. I am looking for an IEM for every day purposes, but noise isolation is a must for study periods. My budget is under $200 CAD, of course the best bang for the buck is optimal. As the title states, I mainly listen to EDM (House with heavy drops, vocal, as well as trance ie: Tiesto, Dash Berlin, Bingo Players) with occasional Rap/Hip-Hop. These will be my first pair of IEM that are over $80 and I intend to keep them for as long as possible.
Here are my options:
Yamaha EPH-100SL - $150 USD / 164.42 CAD (order through amazon)
Onkyo IEH-F300S - $130 USD / 142.49 CAD (order through amazon)
Hifiman RE-400 Waterline - $120 CAD (Able to purchase locally)
Shure SE215 - $99 CAD (Able to purchase locally)
Torque T103Z - $180 CAD (Able to purchase locally)
*being able to purchase it locally is just a convenience factor*
Any input that can put me closer to a decision is greatly appreciated. Any alternative suggestions is also welcomed.
