A few months ago in May, I dived into the higher end audio market with a purchase of the Fostex TH600/HP-A4 and I have loved the massive improvement of quality over all previous audio equipment I've owned. With my home audio sorted for now, I feel it is a good time to make the first upgrade to my mobile from my current which is just an old pair of Apple earbuds. Unfortunately I have a bit more of a limited budget and would like to try to find a pair of IEMs under $200.
A good majority of the music I listen to contains female vocals so a pair which shines in that area would be ideal. I've had friends toss out recommendations for Shure and Audio Technica but there are quite a few models within the price range and I'm open to other brands as well if they better fit what I'm looking for.
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
