Best IEM for under $130

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a replacement for my VSonic GR07 BE for under $130. Hoping not to spend too much so I would prefer to get the best bang for the buck even at a lower price point instead of forking over extra cash for a minimal increase in performance. Really liked the sound signature of the GR07 but also wouldn't mind something slightly different. Build quality is also very important as I will be using them extensively but hope not to have to replace them any time soon. Am currently considering the RHA MA750 but would love to hear any other recommendations. Would be really grateful if anyone could give me some advice. Thanks!

I'm going to recommend a pair of Shure SE215's, because I love mine a lot. They have pretty good bass (a little like the GR07), so your ears should have an easier time getting used to them. As for build quality, it's really good. I've shoved mine in my pocket or backpack several times in the past 6 months and they haven't even shown a scratch (the cable is removable too, so even if that breaks you can just get a new one).

Don't you ever worry about the tips getting dirty? But yeah, they are really durable from my experience. The memory wire might take a little getting used to.

I have cats so they get hairy anyway :P

 

That's one thing, the memory wire can be difficult to get used to.

Look up the 215LTDs. Like 215s on steroids :)

I personally own the Etymotic HF5 and am loving them. They have a, I would say, slightly bright and detailed sound signature with just the right amount of bass for me (which isn't a lot but it's there). 

 

The build quality is decent but not amazing. I pretty much baby my headphones/IEMs so there's that but just don't running these over these with a car. Otherwise, the build quality is good enough.

 

Now, I haven't heard the Vsonics myself so I can't really comment on how they would compare but if you like the slightly bright and detailed sound signature then these might be just for you.

 

I would also like to throw out there that the Shure SE215 have a warm sound signature so if you don't mind that then those are a good alternative as well (I haven't tried them myself but I have read and watched many reviews to have a basic idea on them).
