Hi everyone,i sepnt a lot of time to have some informations on IEM's such as sennheiser IE8,monster miles davis and closed headphones like shure 840 and Audio technica ath m50,i'd like some good IEM's to listen to hip-hop rap,RNB jazz,i really want a clear and natural sound,good bass(like monster beats if possible) and a good soundstage,that's why i first chose IEM's but nthat's really too expensive so i wanted to know the difference between these IEM's and these headphones is big or not,whatever,if someone can give advices,i'd really appreciate it thanks

No, you will prefer the sound of the headphones more if you are concerned about cost rather than application.  I love my MD's for when I   need IEM's but my M50's (Bass tuned and modded) sound better.  I can't imagine Shure 840's for rap and Hip/Hop.  Consider Sennheiser HD25's also if you don't mind an on ear phone thats also more portable.

Well my M50's cost me $98 US, pretty simple math to me.  M50s perform above their price point.  You shouldn't be surprised, its a lot harder to make an IEM that sticks inside your ear sound good rather than a giant can that sits on your head.  Since I like my MD's you won't find me recommending IE8's over them.  A lot of people ditched IE8's for Coppers.  All a matter of personal preference but when it comes down to it, the bigger the driver you can go with will yield the biggest potential sound quality advantage.  Simple physics.
