I have been getting headaches due to the pressure on the top of my head from my current headphones (DT-880, MDR-MA900, ATH-A900X) and I think that I need to start looking into the purchase of a pair of IEMs above $10.
My main listening is, for lack of a better word to describe it, ethereal female vocals (Think Trespassers William, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQRXzEHDzng and Mree, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMbs0cIXeTs), folky female vocals (Think Gabrielle Aplin, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWttGChn5ZE and Emily Barker, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJIoLA3CjgE) and classical (Think Vaughan Williams, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZR2JlDnT2l8). They will also be used to watch television, movies and play games.
I am currently using a Fiio E07/E09 combo.
Budget should be between $175 and $225'ish, maybe a little bit more if it's worth the little push.
Since I would be using them very frequently, I would definitely prefer something that is built to last.
