Looking for 100$ range IEM for Prog (King Crimson, Porcupine tree, etc)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So I want to get a pair of IEMs that I can use when running outside, or at work, as such I don't want to go to expensive (140+) as these IEMS will be used everyday for around 6-10hs a day 5 days a week. Isolation isn't a big deal as no one is near were I work and as I am jogging/running I will never be beside anyone long enough. I have tried using over ears for portable use and they just dont work well when running or even at work some times. 

So overall:

Around  50-120$ (can)
For progressive music, audio books and a bit of trance, but mostly focused on prog.
Durable.
I have a E07k though i do not think I would need it for a IEM (though not sure)

Thank you for the help.

RHA MA750, Philips Fidelio S1, VSonic VC1000, and Shure SE215 are my choices.

Thoughts on the Re 400? As they seem similar to the S1's

The RE400s, I would say are better for accuracy while the S1s are better for a more "fun" sound. While the S1s have a more warm sound, the RE400s are closer to neutral while having smoothed-out treble. It also has better isolation. The S1 has a grill that lets out some sound, but it's not really open.


It's a great IEM but I think the choices I picked are better suited to your tastes. They all do a good job reproducing bass and some people have described the Shure SE215s as a basshead IEM (but it's not bloated).

Yea I have been reading about the ones you suggested and it seems the Sure's have more bass (as they have enhanced bass i think?) I can also get the S2's as I hear they have a better build quality then the S1's and are about 20$ more.
