After trying to find an IEM that was perfect for me I have failed. I am wiping my hands clean from my search for iems. I would consider myself a beginner audiophile. I have a basic understanding of bass, mids, highs and soundstage. I am not a bass head per say but I do enjoy bass when listening to rap, pop and electronic music. What I'm trying to figure out is if I'm a neutral guy or a bass emphasis guy. From what I've read on here is that its easier to tune down a bass heavy headphone then tune up a neutral headphone. Now I've had my eyes on the seenheiser hd598's but from what I've read they lacking in the bass area. I want some input from you guys. I know that I sound indecisive but that's what you guys are here for. You guys are my Yoda. Please guide me in the right direction. Oh I am also looking into the hifiman he-300's too. Thanx in advance.
