IEM recommendations

  1. BucketInABucket
    Hey guys, I've been out of touch of the IEM market for a few years and I'm looking for new IEM recommendations that won't break the bank. Hopefully looking to spend roughly $300, give or take? More or less is fine too depending on what IEM.

    I listen to many genres and prefer a natural sound with good bass and neutral-slightly warm mids/treble. I'll be pairing it mainly with a Revamp Acoustics Nuansa P1.

    Heavily prefer IEMs which sound best with silicone or hybrid tips: basically no foam tips. Many thanks in advance!

    How's the bass and treble extension?

    Massdrop Plus meets your sound criteria and price point. But it's sensitive to source impedance; I don't know what the P1's output impedance is, but that would be something to check. Also, the cables and tips supplied with the Plus are terrible.

    What tips are recommended to go with it?

    I think the P1's output impedance is low? Not sure though

    You might read about the Oriveti New Primacy and see what you think. Its signature is mostly neutral.. Not sure if a neutral sig. will work for you, but it is worth a read at your price-point.

    Spiral dots are popular, and that’s what I’m currently using. But YMMV.

    What about the MDR-7550 (and JP version) and the FLC8D? How are those?

    I think 4 drivers, 3 BAs with one dynamic.

    KZ ZS6 would be in budget good bass and a little bright would do well for rap.
