Yamaha EPH-100 best for edm?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

I created an account to ask what the best IEM's are for EDM. I'm looking to upgrade from standard Apple Earpods and I read a lot of positive reviews about the yamaha eph-100's and how great they are for this music genre. Should I go ahead an purchase them?

What other IEM"s are worth considering for EDM? My price range is about $100 or under.

Other genres I listen to are dance-pop and house (which are both sort of EDM I guess). Example artists are zedd, tiesto, krewella, avicii, david guetta, etc.

Thanks for all responses!

Another thing-I sometimes listen to eclectic music, some acoustic guitar and synthesizer, so some versatility would be a bonus, but not necessary. Thanks!

Excellent for EDM imo

Another option is the DN-1000 if you want more clarity
GR07BE isn't bad either :)

Lots of great options

Thanks for the reply. Those two headphones seem to be in the $200 under price range which I unfortunately cannot afford. Of only there were under at least $150...

Other iem's i'm considering are the velodyne vpulse, meelectronics m9, brainwavz m4, and the akg k375/376 (what's the difference?) Are any of these better than the yamaha's?

The Donscorpio Bass Colours are the same IEM as the first generation of the vPulse, and a heck of a lot cheaper. smily_headphones1.gif

If you are not set on bassy headphones, the Havi B3 Pro, Zero Audio Tenore Carbo, and Ostry KC06. For more bass, the Ostry KC06A and Zero Audio Tenore Basso.

The Zero Audio Tenore Carbo are interesting. How do they sound? The forums seem to indicate that they are similar to the yamaha's...

I like them. Great sound for the price. There is tons of discussion about all three of those IEMs if you google the individual models (or combined models) and the term "head-fi." smily_headphones1.gif

I can't seem to find much on head-fi for tenore, and how they are for edm

The Tenores are a somewhat balanced headphone with a tiny bit of bass emphasis and good soundstage. So if your definition of good for EDM is bassy headphones, no. But there are many of us who enjoy listening to EDM with headphones with a more balanced signature and good soundstage smily_headphones1.gif

Doesn't more bass make edm more "fun" sounding, or not really? I'm not very experienced in the technicalities of music

Depends on whether or not you want to hear the mids. smily_headphones1.gif

Ya ok then I do i do like have some bass to have a warm, colored, and fun sound. I don't mind have a slightly recessed midrange. So I guess the basso's would be more my thing. Are the yamaha's more balanced, or do they have a more fun sound signature?

I have no idea.

There are literally 100s of IEMs, and it can be very tough sometimes to find someone that has tried two different IEMs. Usually best to find the major discussion threads for the IEMs and ask.
