IEM opinion needed! (+ Introduction)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi, Head-Fi-ers!

I need a bit of help in deciding on a new pair of IEMs. I've waded through piles of reviews, and still haven't the foggiest idea what to choose. I guess a bit of background will help out:

  • Currently, I own a pair of V-MODA LP2s (will be posting a basic review later), and used to have a pair of J-lab's Jbuds J2 until the cat decided to make them into his new toy a few years ago.
  • I listen to just about every genre of music.

So far, the IEMs that have caught my interest are Velodyne's Vpulse, Etymotic's hf5, and Klipsch's s4i. The Monster Turbines are a bit out of my budget range. If anyone can recommend a pair or offer their opinions/advice, I would greatly appreciate it. :darthsmile:

Welcome to headfi! Sorry about your wallet

If you listen to everything, then the re400 is your best bet. Keep in mind that it will have a lot less bass than the bass heavy vmodas. But its sound is pretty balanced.

The klipsch are sibilant and the hf5 is kind of bass light, though extremely detailed.

You should read the reviews and post here
