Hi, I’m looking for a sub $200 IEMs for music to chill, relax and study to. Wanted to get a pair of really nice ones for the price so I’m set for a while.
I don’t really have much experience in iems and the selection is even more overwhelming than over ear headphones.
I’m not a fan of m50x’s v-shape where the vocals get drowned in the bass and treble. I rly like my HD58X and HE4XX and down for something similar to these sound wise. I also am using the Tin T2’s and kinda dig the sound. I’m not a crazy basshead, so something with decent bass is fine (felt like SHP9500 wasn’t enough). Vocals are pretty important for me.
I use the bus almost daily, and I’ll be really happy to block most of the engine noise as much as possible.
It’s gonna be powered by a Fiio BTR3, so i guess it needs to be pretty efficient.
I did some research on these two, what do you think? Not gonna lie, they caught my attention cause to me they’re pretty sexy looking haha. Perhaps there are even better options for a cheaper price that I’m not aware of.
