Looking for a good IEM for gaming

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Title says it all. It's too damn hot around where I live and wearing a headphones all day gets very gross. Trying to find a good solution for a IEM. I also have longer hair, so not having to fuss with it after sessions with headphones is a plus.



ATM I have a Sennheiser HD558 that is foam modded, a Beyerdeynamics DT-880 Pro, and HAD [=*(] Audiotechnica ATH-AD900 cans. I'm trying to get something with a similar sound profile. Of those sets, I have to admit I really miss the treble in the Audiotechnica. The DT-880 is a bit too neutral for me.



Any recommendations would be a big help, I know my way a little around cans, but never really looked at IEM sets to be honest.



Edit- Forgot to mention, around the 100-170 price range.

Try out a Philips Fidelio S2 for games. It is perfect for gaming.

It's not an IEM, but the Koss KSC75 is perfect for gaming, and is very comfortable to wear all day. As long as you don't need sound isolation.

I'll look into those Philips sets, gonna read some reviews. Thanks DS...

About the Koss set, at 15 bucks, I honestly doubt it will be what I'm looking for. Thanks for the advice though, do appreciate it. But trying to get something that has a similar sound to my current cans, or as close to them as possible.

You would be VERY surprised at the sound quality of the Koss. I certainly was.

 

But anyway, have a look at Mat Lust Envy's guide to gaming headphones. Might give you some more ideas.
