Need suggestions on IEM's under $100.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Lately I have been wanting to get a new pair of IEM's that are under $100. I liked the sound signature of the Klipsch S4's, though I thought the treble was a little harsh. So does anyone have some suggestions?

There is also the Shure se 215.

I have seriously thought about the se215's and HiFiMan RE400's


How are the V-Sonic GR06's?

I actually haven't heard the Gr06, but here are the reviews.

The reviews seem to be very positive. I'm not sure if you'll like the bass though because they are balanced. The klipsch s4i are pretty bassy

The shure se215 seems to be what you're looking for. The treble is rolled off a little bit and the bass is boosted. Otherwise, they are balanced.

You're welcome

Oh and just a little note: They come with a lot of spare eartips. When choosing them, go from biggest to smallest and see what sounds and fits best.

Oh crap, I forgot to mention the Velodyne vPulse. The shures are better in overall sound quality and isolation but the vpulse has more bass.

I prefer to have good isolation and SQ.

If you want super isolation, look at the Etymotic HF5s. With them in, you can't hear a thing from the outside. Sound-wise, they're more on the analytical side of things.

You can still add triple flange ear tips to the shure se215 but it can be uncomfortable for some and it turns down the bass a little bit for some reason.

What about just using some comply foam tips?

Those shure se215s already come with foam and single flange ear tips

Oh and one more thing
Make sure the seller/vendor you are buying from is selling genuine equipment by making sure they are a authorized shure dealer
