Recommendations of IEM's like Bose IE2 or Philips SHE6000/28

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey all, new here looking for some advice from the experts. I've owned a bunch of IEM's over the years but the two that are my favorite are the Bose IE2 & the Philips SHE6000/28, which I've owned several of, as well as its predecessor the Philips SHE5920. My Bose's have decided to start cracking all over the cables, exposing the inner wire, so its time for new ones. 

 

Here's the catch, I really dont like headphones that plug my ears. So I'm looking for a set of headphones similar to those models. I like that they go into the ear, but i dont want them to plug, or need a far insert. I dont know if its the vent that makes them not plug or if its the lack of seal/shallow insertion.

 

Any suggestions? I've been scouring the site, amazon, as well as local stores and cant find much. I'd like to stay as far under $100 as possible as well. Main use will be for podcasts & punk rock.

 

Thanks!

Are you looking for ear buds?

I dont know exactly what category the IE2's and the Philips models I listed fall into, but whatever they are I'd like something similar.

 

I realized today that the tips of the Philips do actually insert fairly far, so I think it may be more about the vent than the fit/isolation.

I suggest the Vsonic VSD1. They may not look great but it gives you one of the best bang for buck for its price. It's about $60 and you can get it here with free shipping. I believe this is the cheapest place to get it:
