Hi, I used to do a lot of mixing and recording until I ran out of ideas. I got back into it recently after I discovered how to properly use Ultrabeat in Logic Pro and I got a new idea in my head. Here's the deal though, I've been using Audio-Technica ATH M50s to record, but I soon realized I preferred earphones over headphones for this (and that the ATH-M50s aren't exactly too neutral on the low end). What I would like is some neutral sounding earphones. I have been analyzing live music for a while as I have heard some bands perform lately and I would like something that sounds like something that I'd be listening to. (I know there is the speaker factor and impossible to replicate live music issue, but what the heck! Right now, I'm heavily considering the Westone UM3X and currently own the Audio-Technica CK10s (which are too bass light for me). What I would like though is something like this: -warm sound -clean, but impactful bass -clean treble (does not have to be sparkly, but I really do need something clear) -mids DO NOT have to be really forward, but can be if the other factors are present or if it is clean I understand that to get this sound, one may have to pay a large amount of money, but after learning about the UM3Xs, I saw some reviews that explained the sound is something like what I mentioned above. What do you guys think? Some more factors to consider: -I own the Sennheiser IE8s and I REALLY do not like the laid back feel or the slight muffled sound - I previously owned the Monster Turbine Pro Coppers and they would not fit in my ear with ANY tips including the Sony Hybrids. - CK10s and Klipsch Image S4s fit beautifully in my ear (small seems to be good!) -I own the Hifiman RE0s and they also fit quite nicely after a little fidgeting around in my ear. Thanks in advance! EDIT: By the way, almost all of my recordings are either trance or electronic w/ piano. Thanks!
