For financial reasons I need to downsize my listening experience. Well in this case up size down cost.
Pending the sale of my um mentors (shameless plug) I am after some portables that sound good for around the $300usd.
Somewhat easy to drive. I have an e18 but I don't want to have to go get a HiFi m8. Defeats the purpose of down scaling.
Most importantly they need to sound good. I am coming from a $1300 iem so I don't want to cringe every tine u listen.
Bass needs to be ample but controlled. I am a self confessed bass head. However I like quality over quantity.
Lastly the mids can't be thin or recessed.
My short list currently consists of:
Mad dog 3.2. (Had these previously, loved them but borderline not portable)
NAD something something 50s
Thoughts and additions always welcomed
Thanks in advance for any help.
