Why so many questions?
The thing is, my GR 07 died...after 2 years of really intense use. So I guess it was not that bad.
The real problem is that at the same time, my RE0 and my RE 262 died at the same time.
Now I am looking for a better solution to computer and gym use. I used to leave the GR07 to home use and the now Dunu DN1000 to gym use.

Would it be more wise to use a full can(cheap... 100~150 dollars mark) to home use and the Dunu for only for gym use?
Or would it be better to use a iem with an extension cord to use in my computer?
It seems that although my ipod is enough for the Dunus, my computer+extension is not enough, as the sound quality drops a lot.

Also, the heavy metal/hard rock problem: none of the previous iems that I tested were good enough.
The GR07 airiness and detail was a joy when listening to garage rock and acustics, while the Dunu is excellent for psy trance and electro... but not rock in general.

Any tips?

Also, the Hifiman iems that I had offered great sound BUT... their durability were ridiculous! Less than 12 months!

Thanks in advance!

ps: I'm thinking of buying the T-peos Altone, but as the money mark is a little bit higher I'll have to wait a little bit while the price of the dollar goes down a bit in my country. I'm thinking of going for the Fidelios S1 for home use.

Hi, maybe you should read about Grado Headphones (for home use). Most people tend to agree that they excel with the genres you've listed.
 
Best Luck!
