Lost my IEM's, need a new reccomendation for below 30$ range

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, 

 

I have used and loved SoundMagic PL30 for about three years untill I lost them recently. I'm looking for new phones but want to try a new pair despite I loved the PL30.
I've read a few reviews and rankings and have a few candidates. My usage is usually while walking or sitting down and when going to the gym. Therefore, those arcs coming with the PL30 were super useful for me and the headphones were very tight in my ears while doing some sports (even ran with them).

 

I usually listen to a lot of electronic music and bass is needed to be good. My ears know to appreciate good sound and I used to write psychedelic trance a few years back, so I won't get bad sounding IEM's in no way.

 

I still haven't decided what to buy so feel free to recommend. 
Some candidates : Panasonic RPTCM125K , RHA MA-150, same old PL30's (??)...
Do all IEMs support those kind of arcs?


Thanks for the help.

I'm no expert on soundmagic IEMs but it looks like the PL50 is a better version of the PL30, maybe try that?

A bit problematic to take a recommendation from someone that never tried those headphones :(

Take a look at Joker's site, he's reviews a crazy amount (over 300) of IEMs.

I'm actually adding more cash to my budget and probably will post again, im about 60$ now.
The PL50 isn't what I look for, I read the reviews. Currently I'm thinking on VSonic GR06...

I am total noob to IEM's and headphone hobby in general but my vote would go to the Philips SHE3580 those have very nice deep bass, clear sound.

They are definitely Bass heavy. For the price i think they are a real steal. I got my pair for only 8 euros. Actually bought couple of them if i break them.

I am sure there are much much better iem's out there but if you need some very cheap ones that has good sound the She3580 are very nice purchase.
