Choosing an IEM with Useful Info Inside

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

So I am in need of an IEM. I currently have VMODA M-80 Headphones and am really happy with them. I especially like the sound stage of them. I am looking for something similar but for ear buds, maybe with a little more bass that's not too enhanced, but that's asking a lot for ear buds. My budget is 100-200 but would like to stay near 150. 

 

I have found a lot of info on these forums with 2 lists of ranking IEMs

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/478568/multi-iem-review-316-iems-compared-tdk-ba200-added-05-26-14-p-914

 

The BEST list I found

Second best for reference. 

 

So these are just lists and I would like to hear actual people opinions.

 

I am leaning toward  the Hifiman RE-400

 

Am also considering these as well but again don't have actual first hand experience with any of these

 

RHA MA750

RBH EP1

JVC FXD80

GR07 maybe

 

Please help and I hope these lists help people.

If you're looking for something similar in nature to the M80, I'd check out the TDK BA200 or maybe the GR07 Bass Edition. Even though it's the bass edition, it's not unnatural or bloated. 

 

The RE400 maybe a little more neutral than you'd like.

Good call. There are a few pairs of them on the b/s/t forum as we speak.
