In ear headphones for rock like Tool/Pearl Jam £50-150? Shure 425?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Hey all
 
I listen to all types of rock, mainly listen to stuff like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Mars Volta, Porcpine Tree and 90s alt rock. All in FLAC of course.
 
From my research it appears the Shure SE425 would be a good choice. I'm in the £50-150 pound bracket. Willing to go more if its REALLY worth it. The SE 535 are just ridiculously more expensive here in the UK.
 
Not sure if there is anything else I should consider?
 
Or any anyone tell me what I really need in terms of like mid ranges, treble etc?

 

Thanks for your time and any help.

I have the 535's and would say that if you like bass then these will be lacking. I might suggest looking in to some of the westones. Either the westone um pro 30's or 20's. I have the westone um3x's myself and they have more bass than the 535's.

I'd give a good look at the Dunu DN1000 or the Westone 3.

Bass isn't important to me, as long as there is some.

Shure 215 is an excellent in ear for rock based genres that has detachable cables in case you ever need to replace or upgrade one. Also it won't break the bank!

More options for you to consider http://www.head-fi.org/t/478568/multi-iem-review-310-iems-compared-dunu-dn-1000-added-02-12-14-p-862

 

(Perhaps too many?)

 

ljokerl does a great job at describing matches to listening preferences.

Still looking for anyone else to chime in? I live in the UK and the 535s are still around double the price of the 425s.


I'm listening to stuff like Pearl Jam, Tool, Mars Volta, Porcupine Tree and anything alt 90s.

for Rock n Roll look into the Grado line. Am a hug he PJ fan and all Grados have me foot taping even with song like The End!

 

EDIT

Sorry guys, did not see "IEM" in there. Could not help myself making an opinion when somebody mentioned Pearl Jam and Tool. When it comes to IEMs I only have the UE 4 Pros and are out of your price target and have to admit not very good with Rock & Roll.

Westone UM PRO 30. You won't be disappointed. I listen to hard rock/metal and these do quite well with these genres.

now im a big shure fan but really the 425, just who told you go for them cause im sorry but no, just no.  unless you are sure of what your getting i cant see why anyone would come to the 425 as the one to go for.

 

unless youve heard a few diff things and can reallystart to aim where you want to head acousticaly then for a first real outing you want to stick to a generalist.  in your budget that means the GR07 or the DN-1000.  on the whole the 1000 is the better but both are super good value and sound great.
