In-Ear Help for the Traveler

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Good news everybody: I'm going to india for 8 month to travel my life over there!

 

Bad news everybody: I Bought 10 month ago the HD 598, and there is no way i'm going back (quality wise),

(i mean, of course i'm going back a little, but i hope that not to much)

 

so, from me, who knows nothing about the in ear world, to you, the glorified people of Head-Fi,

I'm asking for a recommendation  for In-Ear headphones with:

 

Very Good Quality

Very Sturdy

minimum noise leaking

can be driven through ipod touch 5. 

cost less then 200$ (o.k o.k, less then 230$)

 

things i don't care about:

bass (:

 

 

p.s. the music i litsen to, in general line's is the doors, pink floyd, fiona apple, classical music' etc...

Mostly psychedelic and progressive rock,

 

P.S. 2: I heard about in-ear that are modifide Especially for the custumer ear. do you think that its an option?

Not at that price point. Cheapest customized in-ear monitors I know of are $399; any less than that and it's a $100+ custom eartip to go on a $100 universal IEM.

That sounds like the Westone UM2. I've had a lot more time with the Westone 2, but from what I remember in comparison to the UM2, the W2 sounds a little bit flatter and the treble is nearly as good as the SE425, and at the prices they're going for right now, are a slightly better value. The UM2 has a lot more bite for the percussion, which is probably better for your music.
