Just a small introduction to my musiic preferences, I mostly listen to EDM,electronic,House,Progressive etc.

I was looking for an iem and have narrowed it down to the Kxxs or the OH10, yet I cannot choose or buy both:frowning2:

If you know of any other IEM's as well please let me know

My source is an M11 and i might also buy a 4.4mm cable for whichever IEM I buy

Thanks so much for any answers :)

I really like my TFZ no. 3 for Electronic and EDM. It has excellent bass quantity and quality (just a tinge short of true basshead levels). And details/clarity/instrument separation ain't too bad.
It retails about 85ish usd during sales.

A cheaper option that i use for electronic music is the semkarch skc cnt1. Previously retailing at 95 usd. It now is about 43usd on ebay for a new set. It is just slightly less in bass quality/quantity and soundstage than the tfz no. 3. And it has an interchangable filter.

Haven't tried your other shortlisted stuff though.

The OH10 and KXXS I haven't heard, but they have good reviews. Though they are almost double the price of the TFZ No. 3. But I read the KXXS has less bass than the TFZ No. 3, so that might be a consideration when listening to bass forward music like EDM.

You can possibly check out the rest of the TFZ IEMs. They all generally have very well tuned bass and should be well suited for EDM and other bass forward genres of music.

Yep hope u find your perfect IEM!
