Looking for IEMs <$200 for k-pop, c-pop, and multiple genres

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I've been looking at the forums the last couple of days. I've seen the EPH-100, GR07, and SE215 mentioned a lot. I also saw a thread on the Audio Technica ATH-IM50 and IM70. There are a couple of things I'm worried about though. 

 

- I have small ears. I'm worried about the fit of these headphones. The IM50 and SE215 look kinda big, so I'm wondering if they'll fit in my ear. The EPH-100 also looks like it wouldn't be comfortable for everyone. Will buying alternative tips fix any possible fit problem of the EPH-100? 

 

- I listed my budget as $200 but I'd like to stay closer to $150

 

- I listen to a lot of genres of music. I think the majority of music I listen to is k-pop and c-pop though. 

 

examples (these can be found easily on youtube, copy and paste title):

Ailee - U&I 

張瑋 -《讓世界為你轉身》

Elton John - Crocodile Rock

Yiruma - River Flows In You

 

I would like an IEM that can really make the piano sound "delicate" for lack of a better word. I love the sound of the piano. I am not a basshead, so I don't need too much bass, but I would like bass to be present. 

 

I am okay with purchasing an amp if needed, but I don't have a very big budget.

re-400. Pianos and vocals sound amazing on them.

How is the build quality on the RE400?

pretty good. It should last indefinitely for me like all my other earphones since i make it a point to never stress the cable at any part of it.

 

How to make earphones last forever: untangle, don't bend the cable sharply at any point (especially at the plug), don't tug the cable. If you gotta wrap it around a mobile device, unplug it first and don't wrap it tightly.Which can all be summarized as: don't stress the cable! It's the #1 cause of broken earphones by a large margin. Actual driver failures are very rare.
