First to the Moderators, I apologize for my other post being in the wrong section of the forums. It won't happen again.
I am extremely hard of hearing. Deaf you could say. I wear dual hearing aids based on my time in the service.
I use a Fiio E12 amp (upgraded from an E11). I currently use almost all the power the E12 can provide. So much so that the
earbuds I am using get warm/hot over time. I have tried a lot lot of different IEM's. klipsh S4's, X5, X7's, Jlabs (numerous types), Sol Aztec, Marleys, Meelectronics and Audio technica. None seems to be able to handle the power I am putting through them (getting hot makes me nervous). I look at the specifications before I buy anything. On a lot of them, there is no max power rating.
I do not have a large budget. Can anyone suggest something that can handle a lot of power? In my misplaced post, someone suggested balanced armature IEM's.
Thank you in advance, and, great to be here finally!
PS. Am using an iPod with a LoD and the E12 Fiio.
