IEMs that are way low priced for it's sonic quality

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 

Can you guys list some IEMs you guys think that are priced way too low for it's sonic quality?  Also, can you comment on pricing level you think it should be at?  And, also what top IEMs these low priced IEMs are comparable to so we can get an idea of how good they are.  

 

I'm especially interested in those that you think are very low priced and you have heard some high-end stuff, and you think they can beat them.  I just want to get an idea what gems I'm missing.

 

Thanks,

SE

RE-400.

 

granted it build quality is so so but its sound quality demolishes everything priced remotely near it.  as did the RE-0 before it.

Not an expert, but I'll name some great cheap IEM's. The panasonic hje 355 were fantastic at $20. I thought they sound better than my Klipsch s3, but they have less bass. I've never tried these nor worn them, but for $25, you can't go wrong - http://www.amazon.com/Sony-XBA-1-Balanced-Armature-Headphones-1/dp/B006K55662. I don't like bass, and since I'm not an expert, I'm probably biased. Inaways, please chack them at if you would like to. Personally I've looked at the those first two options for my cheap pair, Sony C10ip and these for mid-range http://www.amazon.com/AKG-Q350-Headphones-Signature-Black/product-reviews/B004444O5U/ref=dpx_acr_txt?showViewpoints=1. Then I was looking at the GR07 and RHA-MA750i for low-high end headphones. Just suggestions, not heavy at all on bass(not for bassheads).

Both NarMoo offerings are great. The Monoprice....bunch o' numbers (someone help me out here...). Check out some of DSNuts' posts. He's covered a lot of good budget options that play at another level.

Sony EX300 are pretty good for the price and can compete some higher price IEMs, also GR07 are realy good and it offers great punchy bass, detailed mids, highs and wider soundstage (It can easily compete with pricier IEMs). Yamaha EPH100, FXD80, Fideleo S2, UE TF10Pro and Etymotic HF5 are also amazing for the price.

Zero Audio Carbo Tenore by far. Sounds like a $200 IEM. I don't know how it happened.

 

 

If you want super-budget priced, the Philips SHE-3580 is less than $10 and easily the best under-$20 sounding headphone I've ever heard (way more than the famous Monoprice).

Narmoo S1 has impressed me with an enjoyable balanced sound, great build quality and fine accessories. I am impressed with what can be bought for less than $50.

T-Peos Altone200 @ ~ USD145 shipped.

 

For me they have better SQ than the Shure SE535 LE I used to own.  Just an incredibly well tuned triple hybrid.

You can get the GR07 mkI/mkII for $100, free shipping at Aliexpress. Be prepared for 2-3 week delivery.
