  1. I am definitely not a bass freak. The full-range response, good dynamics, clarity, and balance are what I'm looking for. It's just that some of the headphones offering that were said to be lacking in bass (Phonak Audeo PFE, Etymotic ER-4S/P). A warm, rich bass is all I like, but clarity and precision are equally important. A lot of the reviews I read also placed the Ety ER-4 series about the ER-6 series. Could anyone who has actually tried both of these briefly explain the difference in the quality of sound that they provide? After more research I am currently considering the following mode
  2. Edit: Sorry I can't edit I think. I took a look at the Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10s and they seem like a good buy for ($180). Any complaints?
  3. I'm going to be doing a lot more recording vocals, guitar, acoustic drums, etc. I may or may not sell the electric kit, I'm just using it to practice until my basement is finished and I can get the acoustic kit. I did some research on the ER-4 and I was initially put off by lack of bass reverb reported by head-fi on their Top-Tier Universal IEM Comparison Chart, but this wasn't the only place I was recommended them and for their price ($225 or so) they definitely seem worth consideration. I've read other reviews that say they offer deep bass response. They also offer (allegedly) more isolation
  4. What's wrong with the Turbine Golds? They got pretty solid all around reviews, better than anything else for $250 that I could see. They also have good isolation, clarity and no hiss. If you guys have a better recommendation I'm all ears, but for my needs they were the best fit I could find.
  5. Thanks, I wasn't expecting to find such a helpful response amongst all the spamming. I did a little research on some IEM charts and whatnot and it looks like the Phonak Audeo PFE's look pretty good for what I'm looking for. I'm just concerned about the bass when listening to something like Tool. I thought the Monster Turbine Pro Gold's might solve this issue but I wonder if I'd be giving up the clarity? Does anyone has any input or experience with these models?
  6. From what I can tell there are two main competing companies when it comes to in-ear monitors: Sennheiser and Shure. I'm looking to drop between $200 and $400 on some nice in-ear monitors and wanted to make sure I get the best bang for my buck. I've checked out a few local music stores for information on in-ear monitors but none of their audio experts have too much experience with them and referred me to some online sources. My main use for the monitors at the moment would be for listening to music; however I do have an electric drum kit and plan to do some recording (with the kit and other
