Looking for IEMs for Bassheads - Page 2

post #16 of 101

I would recommend NuForce Ne-700 - they're inexpensive (I bought them for 60$) and generally quite good in mids ang hights, while delivering high quantity of bass. There is plenty of sub-bass so you'll hear the subwoofer like rumble.

Then there is Monster Gratitude - amazing bass but you need foams or different tips than they provide and bass boost helps a lot - their reaction to equalising is great. They're big and ergonomics are not good.

I had Klipsch S4 for 2 years and I liked them - given that you can get them for 35EUR (amazon.de) it's good quality/cost ratio.

From other IEMs in my collection I can recommend T-Peos H200 - but they'll set you back 200$.

I have both the SE215 as well as the Klipsch S4. The SE215 is a technically superior IEM. However, the S4 does offer you a very boomy bass almost to where I would personally classify them in the "bassy" category if that is what you are looking for.

Hisoundaudio Wooduo 2 also seems to be widely classified as basshead's delight. I haven't tried them though.

Haha wow. Just googled them... "STARTING AT: $1,599.00". Yeeaah no. I could build a system that can rattle my neighbors house for that much money.

I do have them and at the max bass, the Roxannes do pack a punch.

HI!

 

Considering your budget, my recommendations would be:

 

Hisoundaudio Wooduo 2 - clear highs, decent mids and strong bass/sub bass

 

Sony XB90EX - smooth highs, very well mids and deepest bass/sub bass.

 

Cheers.

Thanks everyone for all the recommendations. What do you guys think about the JVC's XX Series bass earbuds??

I've never heard them, but for your budget, the wooduo2 gets talked about a lot as a base heads dream

second getting the wooduo, there is a new version of it that i just picked up on ebay for 50 quid - comes in black and has volume control. considering they retail around 80, anything around 50 is a steal, of course if you are outside the EU and dont want to import im pretty sure i just saw a pair on the classifieds

Of course, but are outside the budget. In fact, the housing of Wooduo 2 is also of wood :tongue: (rosewood) which provides a more natural timbre and deep bass extension. A cheapo version of the JVC FX850 :biggrin:.

JVC HA-FX1X or 3X are pretty darn bassy. Have both....I prefer the bass on the 1X, but the 3X are better overall.

I used the Klipsch S4 for a couple of years, they certainly have a good amount of bass but I agree that it is not the most detailed. I have just started using Yamaha EPH-100 and while they don't seem to have quite the amount of bass, it is much more detailed, impactful and just all round better. I definitely recommend the Yams if you can find them.
