I’m looking for some recommendations for relatively cheap IEMs. My girlfriend’s earbuds that she got with her phone broke and since she knew I was into audio, asked me for replacement recommendations. The issue is that I don’t know IEMs too well so I’m hoping you all can point me in the right direction!
She doesn’t quite know what sound signature she prefers, she just wants a full sounding IEM and one with a larger soundstage. From her limited knowledge of audio she does like using my DT770 250 with atom amp if that helps draw any sort of baseline. She listens to indie, folk, jazz, swing, pop, alternative, and synthwave, as well as lots of videos. She does a fair amount of running so she’s looking for something that will stay fully in her ear for long periods of time without bothering her. And a pair that is built well as she does drop things. Additionally, she would like a mic if possible, but that isn’t a deal breaker.
My initial thought were the Tin T2 because so many people were talking about how they were THE IEM to get if your budget was that low, though people have been raving about the Blon BL-03 and BL-05, but it sounds like I would have to get a replacement wire and tips for those in order to make them work. Please let me know where I should go from here and if you need additional info let me know! Thanks!!
