Mobile headphones similar to Superlux 681 or DT 990

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Source: Motorola Razr (XT910), Android smartphone, no amp

Use: Mobile, train and bus, so it shouldn't leak too much

Type: Can be IEM, on-ear or over-ear, but it must be somewhat portable

Durability: Would be nice

Music taste: (Power) Metal, (Synth) Rock, game/Anime/movie soundtracks

Budget: I'm trying to stay under €50 but go ahead and recommend anything up to €150!

 

Alright, since I got my Superlux 681 (and DT 990 afterwards), I've discovered my liking for brighter and airy headphones. My Panasonic RPHJE120K sound disgustingly muddy and unrefined in comparison. Then again, they cost €7...Anyway, that means I'm looking for headphones that have [b]controlled, clear[/b] bass and do not neglect mids and especially treble.

I already ordered the Klipsch Image S4 II because I heard good stuff about them (or their predecessor), but I gotta say, they're only a very tiny step over the Panasonics. Their sound signature is incredibly similar: muddy and unpecise.

Hopefully I'm not asking for the impossible. Oh and please note I'm from Germany, so consider that not everything you'd recommend might be available (or affordable rather) here.

Sorry, don't know. I have many SuperLux but don't know an IEM or portable that has that sound...

Yeah, it kinda seems to me that affordable, mobile headphones in general really love to go for that boomy, unrefined bass sound :(
