Recommendations to replace my Shure e2c's

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi guys

I'm new to this forum . My e2c's are on their last legs. I really enjoyed my shures but I do not have a clue what to replace them with. I mainly listen to hip hop and electronic music but I am not some bass freak. It will be paired with the ibasso x90 that I ordered today as my iPod died last night! I was looking at the custom art music one but after emailing piotr he says I won't get the same amount of bass with them compared to my e2c's. He recommends the music two which might be pushing my budget a tad too far

Any advice would be most appreciated

Not sure if you want customs or not, I listen to hip hop 75% of the time and the Sony XBA-H3 are fantastic.

I find that by coming to this forum I am more confused than ever lol... I don't understand a lot of the jargon I just want a great pair of headphones at a reasonable ish price. I will look into them sonys thanks! I have also been looking into the shure 535 and the westone 4r but they are pushing my budget out a bit too

I'd stay away from those Shures. The Westones are good but I like the Sony's much more, especially for hip hop.

the se535 is lacking in bass and probably won't work well for the music you listen to. i had the se535 ltd and i sold it within the month because i wasn't impressed for the price.

Cheers mate. What are they like for other genres? I listen to mainly hip hop and electronic music like I said originally but also groups like arcade fire, lcd soundsystem, radiohead etc

jh13 and se846.

se846 if you like bass smily_headphones1.gif

If you wear your IEMs for long hours i really suggest getting CIEMs. They feel so much better and to me it's totally worth it. 1964 ears has some good value CIEMs if you're interested.
