So I've been wanting to get into the audiophile scene for quite some time now. I listen to music all day every day, from the moment I get to school until I either have to go to work or go to bed. I’m currently just using the standard EarPods that came with my iPhoneX on a daily basis. I own the Bose QC15 and beats pros, not sure if these have respect in the world of high-fi headphone, but I don't use them as much as I would like. Due to the extreme isolation of the QC15 and I listen to a lot of music in class and it would be a hassle to turn on and off every time I need to hear what someone is saying and the Beats Pros are just way too bulky to carry around daily. I have finally saved enough money to spoil myself. I think an IEM would be better for me because I rarely have time to sit down at home and use a dedicated setup (not like I can afford a setup for $1000+ anyways). I’ve had my eyes on the LZ-A5/LZ-A4 (because of the appealing reviews/filters), MEE audio Pinnacle P1’s (because of the great reviews I've read), and the 1MORE triple/quad drivers. If anyone has other suggestions for good IEM's around or under $200 I am open for ideas. Any advice on why I should choose the LZ's/P1/Triple driver/quad driver over one another? I am also wondering if I would benefit greatly if I just deal with the hassle of getting another over-ear headphone? Not sure if I should even be considering something like the ATH-M50x because I already have what I think are two decent sounding headphones...and before you say anything, I know that they are overrated, but if so many people speak highly of the product it must be a decent place to start off. Do the M50x sound better or equal to the LZ’s or my current cans? I know most over-ear headphones normally sound better in general, but if one of the IEM's I mentioned previously (or a suggestion) sound decent compared to an over-ear headphone I'd rather start off with an IEM and wait until I can buy a dedicated AMP/DAC and some cans that'll keep me satisfied for quite some time. I Need portability, comfort, at least some soundstage, good bass, decent instrument separation, and decent isolation. I most commonly listen to classic rock, rap/hip-hop, heavy metal, various solo guitarists, and occasionally some classical pieces. I would need the ability to either use just my iPhone dongle or something along the line of the fiio btr3 to power whatever I choose. Any advice would help. Thanks!! P.S: When giving suggestions keep in mind I'm still young and would like to only buy what is needed and nothing extra due to cost. I plan to continue to dive deeper into this amazing journey to become an audiophile and will have many years ahead of me to build my dream setup. With this said I'm perfectly fine with spending a few hundred dollars for good SQ.
