  1. InEar StageDiver SD-3

    These babys will give you everthing you need from an high and IEM. Very strong bass presence, realistic and detailed mids, and non fatiguing smooth, detailed treble.    I think they are the final step before the customs, and if you think about their isolation, maybe you don't need a custom IEM if you have these. These IEM's are one of the greatest solutions for those who don't want to be involved in a CIEM process, but want a great isolation and sound quality.   I owned GR07, Westone 3, Westone 4R, Westone Um Pro 30 before these.

But comfort and isolation is not great.   The Sound: These have dual drivers. For the price you pay, the sound is really good! These have powerful bass response but not overwhelming the other frequencies. And mids, yeah, where...
  4. FiiO E17

    Great product from Fiio. I think its really good for starters. Works fine with almost all headphones. EQ is great. Clean sounding. Performance/Price ratio is definitely good. You can't go wrong. And also it can be used as a headphone amplifier alone. Portable. Extras are good.
