    You probably don't want to buy an armature-based earphone, then. As for the other two, the GR02 has that "wow" factor because of its v-shaped signature, with plenty of bass but also very prominent treble that most novice listeners will take for fantastic clarity. The Trident is more on the warm and smooth side, it will probably remind them more of their (older relative's) Bose set. The Trident also wows with its construction and overall presentation - it looks and feels like a higher-end product. If you're not too worried about all that, for pop I would probably go GR02. But really, either would be a great choice.

    Interesting question... probably the JVC FXT90 in terms of overall signature and presentation.

    Good price!

    Unfortunately I don't take photos of packaging and I really don't remember what SE215 packaging looked like. June 2012 should be fine, though - supposedly the issues were solved soon after I wrote my review, which was back in 2011.
     
    The connectors do swivel pretty easily so that really doesn't you anything.

    This is an excellent resource for finding the right IEM... I think that IEM you get a lot more sound for your money compared to headphones... In sound quality a pair of £100 IEM is better than pretty much any headphones under £300.... Except for maybe comfort and soundstage.

    SM3 if you can get it under 300, or else it would be SM2 I guess

    Hey guys, I'm in the market for some IEMs $150 and below. I got recommended the EX-600's, because my priority was for piano/ orchestral music, and I would favor in the timbre and note presentation. The point of reference for me is the B2's, which are absolutely wonderful sounding, although the note presentation seems to be a little lean for me to call realistic, and I'd like something with a slightly more tame treble. Would an IEM that is (slightly) on the darker side of neutral suit my needs? The IEMs i am looking at are the HA-FXT90, TDK BA200s, RE-400s, SM2s, and the EX-600, My price strecher is the GR01, if the difference to the B2s is quite a bit. Any recommendations?
    Thanks!

    I would say RE -400 or SE215, or Fidelio S1

    Agree.

    The RE-400 would be a good one, or the RE262 if you can still find one. From Philips both the Fidelio S1 and S2 would work. I think the S2 is a little warmer-sounding overall so it might be better for you. I would not recommend the GR01 as it's probably not different enough from the B2, or the SM2/FXT90 because they may be too different. No experience with the BA200.

    Am I the only one that didn't like the RE262's scooped out upper midrange? Reminded me of the W2's sig. I find the RE-400 quite superior to both.

    I find the RE400 superior to the 262 but not the 272.

    I'm guessing that's where the RE600 comes in... [​IMG]

    If only it was going to be cheaper I might take the chance to find out.

    I disagree.
     
    My £34 JVC HA-S500 are just as good if not better than the Yamaha EPH-100 which I bought for £100.

    can anyone give me please a link to a impedance adapter?
    i keep hearing about it, and i read it might make the MEElec A161 sound better,
    but i just can't find anything on amazon/ebay
