Sidegrade from fischer fa-003

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hello guys, I've been wanted to sidegrade my fa-003. Im looking something more portable and fun sounding but doesn't sacrifice the mids.

My current choices are:

- Onkyo ES FC-300

- Audio Technica ATH IM50

 

My max budget will be around $100-150.

Any suggestions are welcomed.

 

Cheers! :beerchug:

you do know that the IM50s are IEM's, right? have a look at the Don Scorpio Dolphins, I was consedring buying them until I found I could get the Fischer (Brainwavz) for 30€ less

I indeed know that IM50 are IEM's, im okay as long as they are portable. My fa-003 is too big and obnoxious for portable usage.

Sadly, I can't find any Don Scorpio around in my country. Any suggestions else?

 

Thanks though. Cheers! :beerchug:

more portable like the CAL! or CAL2 (the CAL! is better) or more portable like the AKG K450 or the Beyer DTX501p (better than the AKG)?

I'm a bit leaning towards neutral sound signature.... I heard CAL! is a colored sounding cans...
 thanks alot for the suggestion though :D

 

Now, I'm contemplating with Yamaha EPH-100, Shure SE215/215SPE and Audio Technica IM50.

I guess I'll be leaning toward IEMs too now.

 

Any other suggestions that cost USD100-150?

 

Cheers! :beerchug: and happy listening :)

I know that the Yamaha EPH-100 is not considered neutral. Rokit R-50 would be.

Shure SE215 and RE-400 wpuld be wonderful choices. if you can stand the Ety's maybe the HF5, if I'm not mistaken, can be a good choice for you too

I'm sorry, I think I need fun sounding headphone but doesn't drown out the mids and highs.... correction :p

I heard Ety's soundsig is very fatiguing... is it right? I'm considering Shure 215, Yamaha EPH-100.... and Audio Technica WS55x... my fa-003 sounds too cold to me

again mate, the dolphin's are a excellent option for you. dunno about build quality though

 

if you are leaning more towards IEMs, check this list: http://www.head-fi.org/t/541204/concise-multi-iem-comparison-final-update-march-1st-2013
