Need bassy IEMs for rap/hip hop genre (will pay for quality; throw everythin at me)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Sorry if this has been asked a million times - the search results that turned up for me were for posts a hundred years ago or for entry level IEMs. 

 

I'm looking for a higher end IEMs that will make me shed tears (of joy) when I listen to, just to name a handful: 

  • Jump - Rihanna
  • Otis - Jay Z and Kanye West
  • Pound Cake - Drake
  • Red Nose - Sage the Gemini
  • Swimming Pools (Drank) - Kendrick Lamar

 

 

Other criteria and considerations:

  • Not looking for entry level IEMs - wanna invest in a good pair
  • Has a reasonable emphasis on bass
  • I've got small ear canals (if it matters?)
  • Also listening to dance and house genres (but not a huge concern for me) 
  • Upgrading from Shure SE215 Limited Edition (I've outgrown it.. bass and SQ can't keep up with me)

 

If you're up for the challenge, you can also recommend a DAP or anything else that will make me weep.

Ah, The DX50 and DN-1000 is an awesome combo. I would also wait to see how the DX90 and DN-2000 is though.

Oh, and maybe the T-Peos hybrids will be good as well.

Just curious here, how far does your budget go? If it's without a budget, I'd recommend the Sennheiser IE800 as a really good bassy IEM.

Would prefer not to exceed $1.2k for IEM itself, as I intend to get a DAP too.

Would CIEMs work? If it does, I'd recommend the Unique Melody Merlin, they're at $880. If not, I'd still stick with the IE800.

Why don't you try Shure SE846 for bass heavy songs

thanks for all the recommendations, will try to find time to audition them. 

 

I've only just embarked on my journey of music appreciation, so any bit of info helps. Thanks :)
