Hello, I'm new to Head-fi. I am really in to music, I do compete in Sound Quality with car audio. I'm a student now and why I need new IEM's is because those i have had earlier sucks... (not good enuff ( <75$ ))
Because I have such good audio in my car ( >4000$ ) I want IEM's with some SQ. I want a wide soundstage and I want good response in all registers, nothing overwhelming.
I would like if the availability is good because I live in Sweden and if the brand is small then I need to import, which lead to problems with repairs etc...
The purpose for new IEM's would be in school, so i can concentrate. Therefore I need good isolation, they do also need to fit comfortably because I do often use IEM's for great periods of time 8h+.
With previous IEM's i have also had problems with the cable, It becomes (backlash?)(not working). Therefore I wonder if I might need a pair with detachable cord.
I'm also interested in Active-noice cancelling, I have listened to bose qc20. They sound "good" but not great... But again I want good isolation.
I will power them with my iPhone because thats where i have my music. I do only listen to Spotify 320Kbit/s and Flac 1000-4000Kbit/s.
To sum this up:
Work for long periods of time
Right now I don't have an idea of what to buy, the only setup i have succeeded to find is Sennheiser IE80 with Comply Tx-500 Isolation PLUS But I am afraid of them not isolate good enough and missing some in the higher register... :/ And after those there is bose qc20 and those dosn't sound like 300$ IEM's... In conclusion of that I am very open for your opinion and recommendations.
Edit: I listen mush to acoustics, countryrock and ofc some top 100 songs (top 100 on spotify)...
