IEM <$200 with great sound isolation

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
G'day guys

I'd like some recommendations for a pair of IEMs to upgrade from the stock earphones provided with a Galaxy s4.

In a month I'm travelling for a few months doing various bus tours/Flights and staying in group accommodation. I also find it quite difficult to fall asleep with a bit of ambient noice, eg snoring etc.

Ideally like to spend $100 - $200 but can stretch to $350ish if its warranted.

What i would like is something with great sound isolation, highs and mids.

Music I listen to is mostly chill out stuff, soft rock, female vocals and sometimes when in the mood the rock classics.

The more I seem to read the more overwhelming it becomes with the amount of choices available so thought I'd as the pros tongue.gif

I guess what I'm after is an all rounder with great sound isolation.

Take a look at RE-400 $99 the mids and highs are very good and clear through out.

I'd suggest you look at Vsonic VC1000, they have decent isolation and are very comfortable.

Thanks mate. Just one concern with these is they look a little long. Would they be a bit uncomfortable if laying on a pillow?

Would the shure se215 sort of flat style be more comfortable?

Actually no, because they fit basically the same as Klipsch X10. when you wear VC1000 they tilt downwards.

Instead of being like this: ---(O_O)---

They relax with gravity like this: /(O_O)\

I see the vc1000 is rated highly by those who have them. Only concern is they've now been discontinued.

Can't seem to find anything on them being superceded by another product.
