I am looking for in-ears and budget below $150 if possible. I noticed from earlier posts on
1) BEYERDYNAMIC - DTX101 iE
2) Sennheiser CX400
3) ULTIMATE EARS - UE 600vi

Any other recommendations or feedback on the above? Prefer good bass but not the booming type.

I went to Jaben and was introduced portable amp. Is it really necessary? Any recommendation on this too?
Personally I would suggest you spend on your earphone first unless spare cash allows to consider a portable amp.

Around $150 you could consider the popular TDK BA100 or dual driver UE700, stretch a bit more for the Shure SE215 or the TDK BA200. There are of course plenty of other choices which you may have to drop by to try them for yourself to know which suits you better.

Thanks, tested and bought the UE700. Shure SE215 was too heavy in sound for me.

recommendations thank you ((:

hi all. noob here so recommendations are greatly appreciated ((:

budget: <130 (XD my 1st earphone that are not those default earphone that comes together with products)

preference: comfort and clarity
in ear earphone for iphone
dont really need a mic cause i will answer phone directly without earphones

usage: 1.) radio or music on iphone, basically any genre, from chinese oldies and country to kpop and pop songs. (except heavy metal or techno or any song with high bass)
2.) movies, drama and videos on youtube.
3.) tend to wear earphone to listen music to sleep hence would like a comfy earphone (not too large) which i can rest my head sideway on pillow and listen to music simultaneously.

please pardon my HUGE request for such a low budget... XD
