[UPDATED] Best sub $50 IEM from mainstream brands @UAE for Rock music

  1. XmarX
    Hi guys !
    I got a $40 Amazon gift coupon from AMD and planning to buy an IEM to replace my damaged Samsung IEM I got with my mobile phone. I need to pay the shipping, aprox. $16.7 from the coupon. So, the effective amount I got is around $23.3 !
    I listen to rock, U2, Coldplay, Daughtry, Audioslave...etc !
    And I like clear sound and above average bass but I HATE BRITTLE TREBLE, makes me gnash my teeth away !
    So, which is best choice for me !
    BTW, here are the contenders
    1. Jlabs J3
    Bad: shrill treble ?
    2. Meelec M6
    Bad: recessed mids
    3. JVC HA FX 51 Micro HD
    Please post your recommendations !
    Thanks !!
    4. Altec Lansing UHP 206 Backbeat
    Bad: ?
    5. JVC Marshmallow
    Bad: Muddy bass ?

    I lost my Jlabs Jbuds J3 and I'm looking for a sub $50 IEM from Dubai (UAE) !

    From your list, since you can't get the FX51 then go for the J3, good balanced sound, well built, good Customer service through their website.

    If you can throw in a few extra dollars, I would recommend the Brainwavz Beta.

    Thanks man !
    Let me try ordering the FX 51 and if it doesn't work, I would be getting the J3 :)
    quote name="TChia" url="/t/576198/best-24-iem-for-rock-music-from-amazon-at-40-shipping-to-uae#post_7828659"] If you can throw in a few extra dollars, I would recommend the Brainwavz Beta.
    Thats the problem, money :rolleyes:
    If I had the cash, I would be getting the Headdirect RE 0 which available in my country :p

    BTW, if I wait till Nov 25 Black Friday, would I get some good deals ?
    I've tried many 'Lightning' deals before but none of the sellers are willing to ship UAE !!

    So, what should I do ?
    Should I wait ?
  5. XmarX
    Ok, I got the Jlabs Jbuds J3 from Amazon !
    Didn't like it !
    I can't 'feel' there is any treble (I mean high freqs.) on it, kind of a big let down. Also felt that even the EP-630 is better than the J3 interms of treble :xf_eek:

    Anyway, thanks for the recommendations guys !

    BTW, I lost the J3 on my way back from college => new IEMs are due !! :)
    My brother is workin @Dubai and he has promised me to get an IEM for me from there !

    I guess there ( Dubai ), only IEMs from mainstream brands are available...Sony, JVC, Sennheiser, Audio Technica, Logitech...etc !

    So, which is the best bet for rock music out of these brands ?
    Max budget ~ $50 (can raise if its worth it !)

    Should I go for the JVC HA FX 51 Micro HD
  6. jaqueh
    sennheiser cx500
  7. XmarX
    Is it 'better' than the JVC one ?
  8. jaqueh


    no i don't think so, i have never tried the jvc's, but the cx500s arent reallly spectacular
  9. XmarX

    Ok !

    BTW, is it better than CX-300 ?
  10. jaqueh


    don't ever get the cx300
  11. XmarX
    Thanks for the tip ! :)
  12. XmarX
    So, CX-500 is the best IEM for 50 bucks ?
