looking for 400-600 usd iem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
A bit of history ... I tried the shure 535 red and the standard black. I have to say I love the red more... however... the red lacks a little bit on the treble department for my taste...

I would be using it directly plugged in to my Samsung galaxy phone unless I really have to use a dac...

I mainly use it to listen to orchestra and instrumental music..
Those songs that has vocals would be the kinds that Celine Dion or Whitney Houston sings .. and very occasionally Katty Perry's..

Thank you for the recommendations

There are the UE900, Westone 4R (or the new one, forgot its name), FAD Heaven VI, ATH-IM03.

At that price, why not invest in custom IEMs? You could get a universal fit like the Ultimate Ears UE900 or Westone 4 if you don't want to deal with the wait and the hassle of visiting an audiologist. Isolation and comfort provided by customs are pretty much unparalleled by universal fit IEMs if you're willing to go that route. You can find out more here.

I love cIEM's, but you gotta make sure that you'll keep it forever. Otherwise it's really hard to resell. My advice: go for the UE Triple.Fi 10's (much better mids/highs than the UE900's IMO, ironically), or the Westone 4R. Both have very different sound signatures than the SE535, which I happen to not be a huge fan of myself.

 

Once you decided that you really like a pair, maybe it's time to invest in getting them reshelled. There are companies out there that do it for $120 or less, albeit there is a long waitlist. I'd also NOT make the ear impressions myself but rather go to a professional audiologist, about $50. PM me if you want details, I have 4 pairs of cIEMS and over 20 pairs of universal IEM's.
