iem to start

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Dear folks

Daniele from Italy/Dubai

 

i m listening to headphones from when i expat to work in middle east

i start from sennheiser hd650, that i liked very much

ultrasone hfi780-nice bass and detail, but a bit too harsh and v shape

grado gs1000-very good detail and huge soundstage but a bit too shy in the bass region

denon d5000-very very enjoyable just a bit too bassy sometimes

 

right now i m listening with audeze lcd2-toxic silver window-conceroHD transporter to a burson conductor

and i like what i heard very much!

 

for my portable rig i have sennheiser momentum over ear recabled silver wire+hisound studioV

that are very cool and perfect

 

unfortunately it start to get hot in Dubai and i soffer the temperature so i would like to be introducted to iem

i have a pair of hifiman from my old hm601, that are pretty good but nothing compared to the momentum

 

some friends advise me for senny ie80 or jvc ha850, that looks very good

i have the posibilty to try shure 535 and 435 second hand

 

i should buy the other without listening

 

i listen mostly to free jazz, modern, avantgarde, electronic 

 

i will listen when i walk to go to work, in the metro, in the office, in the airplane

 

my budget is about 150-300 eur, i will listen with the hisound studioV (that for sure it s not on warm side)

second hand is welcome!

 

what do you guys suggest from me?

 

ciao

Daniele

ahh right forum this time :normal_smile :

 

so for jazz and stuff the 535 would likely be very good but.... since you seem to have quite varied tastes id maybe suggest more of a generalist. so my suggestions there would be the DN-1000 or the GR07.  have reviewed both of them so id suggest reading them and seeing if they sound like something that may match your needs well.

I'll check thank you very much
What about ie80. Is it true they sound like hd650?
I notice even custom ear one getting nice review
Jvc 850 is a bit out of budget as per first iem

I would vote 535 based on your leaning towards HD650 or Audeze. If you could swing the 846 that would be my ultimate pick. I don't know if I ouwl put the ie80 in the HD650 camp but that is just my ears. Good luck.

I am not personally familiar with the 2 phones Mark recommended so those may be a good choice too.

rha are available as well. could it fit my taste?

I think gr07 have shy bass from what I read

 

sm64 seems to be the iem to choose

I m just looking for a second hand unit cause a new one is too expansive for a first in ear

...

 

the problem for the iems is that are not available for demo, at least here, except for second hand ones

tbh for your first in ear you could go with something like the RE-400. its for the money amazingly good and even if you dont love it it would provide you will a good reference point to better guide you onwards form there.

hi, well they should be warm and liquid which should go with what you want particularly jazz however id still be inclined to go with something cheaper until your more certain what you want.  you have a pretty diverse musical taste so i would be weary of taking anything that is high end as a first buy unless you know youll be able to buy more quite soon.
