Need IEM recommendations please!

post #1 of 9

Are there any IEMs/Earbuds in the ~ $ 50-100 range that have a sound signature with rolled off treble?

 

Something similar to an LCD-2's signature, where the mids+bass are quite balanced with eachother, then the treble rolls off a little bit?

Try the new Shure SE112 - they're a rounded off to listen to as they are to look at. Its my current budget favourite as too much top gets in my way too. These are like mellower E10s.

The RE-400 has an unobtrusive treble, but I wouldn't call it rolled off. The SE215 may suit you well as well.

Is there anything else I should check out?  My previous cans I should mention are AD900X, and HE-500. I loved them both (especially the he-500) had a tad bit to much treble for my tastes, and resulted in a bit of fatigue. 

( a few people suggested my issue with the he-500 may have been the treble peaks at 2khz and 6khz I believe?)

 

I'm currently waiting to buy LCD-2, (tried em at a store and fell in love) but I need something as a spare until then, and also to use on the go with my ipod touch.

 

I would be willing to spend a little extra if it had a decent return policy, on the off chance I don't enjoy them.

 

 

I'd really like something that has a really nice thump in the low end, although I'm not sure if IEM's can provide that punch? I have about zero experience with IEM's.

Then the SE215s may be better. I actually like the SE210s more if you can still find them.

Shure SE215, Phillips Fidelio S1, and RHA MA-750 all seem to bill.

Funnily, the SoundMAGIC E10 can pack a real punch at the low end if you have custom moulds - with mine the sub bass has a real slam and power.

 

What you say about the HE-500 reminds me of my experience. I had the HE-6, He-500 and HE-400 to play around with whilst the distributor was visiting - I preferred the HE-400 and bought them not long after!

 

The Final Audio Adagio III is worth looking at too - the bass has some welly on those.

How do I go about getting custom moulds? Do I just use those "Decibullz" ones?

I may end up buying multiple IEM's, maybe what you suggested along side a few other pairs that were suggested. I have a few "enthusiast" buddies, that would like to try them as well.

 

We're currently in the process of making a huge list of headphones and IEM's in a google doc of what we want to buy and try out.

Hope you had a nice weekend!

 

We're UK based so you'll have to send your ears over if you want these particular ones, but this may give you the idea as to possibilities and costs -

They're available through our site; I'd imagine that there's a similar service in the US, ACS for instance -
