I am a senior in high school, and my AP Calculus BC teacher is quite the audiophile, and he managed to get me really interested in audio after just one conversation. Since then, I have done more research on gear than I’d like to admit. I was looking for good budget IEM’s and I ran into the Tin T2/T3 and the KZ ZS10 Pro IEM’s and I was wondering if they are any good? Also, I couldn’t find any IEM’s with 2.5mm balanced cables from the get go, are there any?
My teacher also recently upgraded his DAC and AMP at school (along with headphones), and I guess since he saw I was so interested, let me take home his Schiit Fulla 2 to borrow for a while, since supposedly it will just collect dust. I am planning on getting some Sennheiser 58X Jubilee’s as a starter headphone for multiple reasons, and I’d use the Fulla 2 for that at home. However, I do a lot of my music listening on the go, and I would like to know some good IEM’s to get. I would most likely use IEM’s when out of the house, but I may use the 58X when I get those, depending on the situation. Either way, I will probably need a DAC or Amp (or both) that I can take with me (or maybe also use at home when I return the Fulla 2. If the portable ones are not good for at home use, I will just buy my own Fulla 2 at the end of the year), and I’d love to hear suggestions.
Any advice would be appreciated! I am excited to be a new part of this community, and audio in general!
