Hello ! I've decided to replace my existing universals, and will be transitioning to CIEMs, need some recommendations.. Here are some more details... Budget : My budget will be about US$1450. This doesn't include the costs of ear impressions and shipping. Usage : I'll be mainly using it on the go - eg, public transport or in school. I'll also be using them for performances in the future. Source : Currently, it will be my iPhone 4s with 320kbps files, but I'm planning on upgrading to a DX100. I probably won't have a lot of lossless files in the future too. Song Genres : I mainly listen to Ballads, Asian Pop / Rock ( especially anime soundtracks ) , Rock ballads and Classical. Bass : I'm not a bass head, but I won't mind the extra bass ( since I play bass, tuba, and lead guitar ). My conditions are that it has to be " tight ", not sure how to describe that feeling... maybe controlled and full. Low sub-bass extension would be good Mids/ Treble : Vocals. I'm looking for something which excels at female vocals, since it makes up about 80% of my library. It has to be detailed, and not laid back. I don't mind something mid forward, nor slightly neutral, but the presence has to be there. Apart from vocals, it has to have good instrument separation and detail ( like picking out a given instrument from the recording and listing to its part ) . I don't mind my music to sound " analytical ", actually I kinda enjoy it that way. Having a good treble extension will be a huge plus point. Can't wait to see what recommendations will be given ! Thanks in advance !
