Hello Headfi!
 
I thought id treat myself to a new pair of IEM's for Christmas but im not sure what to get.
 
I like deep and powerful bass and listen to mainly Hip-Hop/Rap and a bit of Dubstep. 
I currently have the Dunu Tridents and they are brilliant for the price but i fancy something new. I really like their build quality and their look, plus they have a sparkling treble that can keep me entertained for hours on end.
 
I would like something similar but a step up. Bass, clarity, good build quality and by under £100
 
Thanks

If you're a fan of the Tridents and their build quality, how about the Hephaes? A little too flashy for me but they fit your requirements.

Thank you for the replys!
Denon look the part (SQ wise) but i heard the cable is either too long or too short so im staying away.
 
I was thinking about the hephaes but from the mega thread, i got the impression they arent much of a step up from the tridents. What are the differences?
 
Lucozade i will look into those!
 
the Hisounds have good reviews so ill check them out too!
 
EDIT: I pulled the trigger on the TFTA's. From the reviews what can possibly go wrong :D

I got them today...
 
Feck me the bass hurts :D
 
There is a fair amount of driver flex but not as bad as the XEars. These are burning in, hopefully the clarity will come out soon. Although these are good, so far not £100 worth.
 
@luco, what tips do you use?
