    Are there budget ciem's? ($300 max)

    I guess I have weird ear canals or something, I think the problem are my ear canals are very oval shaped. I have tried numerous ear tips for iems and the only ones which truly fit are foam tips. Foam tips wear out pretty quickly and also become uncomfortable for me due to the pressure they tend...

    Hello, I am looking for an adequate pair of IEMs for myself. I currently own mostly bluetooth stuff like Senn HD4.40 or Technics EAH-AZ70W.

    For any given budget.... dynamic or planar magnetic headphone?

    I was wondering, for any given budget - let´s say around 500, 1000 and 1500 bucks, would you get a dynamic headphone or planar magnetic, and why? I have the impression that planar magnetic has a higher ceiling in terms of price, maybe also sonic quality. But at the same price points, which...
