New IEM Earphones, what to get?

Hi, I know this have been asked many times, but after browsing through threads like this, some way or another, I can't seem to decide.

I'm currently looking at NuForce NE-7M, $89.
BEST seems to be OOS though.

But was wondering if there are other alternatives?

As I'm not too sure of the prices of the models, I can't seem to pinpoint which would be a affordable/better alternatives.

Would be making a trip down to Stereo to audition some IEMs that are recommended here.

Basically, am looking for bass and good SQ.

Price-wise, maybe $150~ around there.


If possible, maybe list down the best 3 that you think would fulfill the requirements.



Thanks so much

everyone's a basshead. LOL. The Ne-7m seems to perform rather well in terms of bass according to quite some people. With your budget you should go to jaben and audition some of the IEMs there.

Seems like another contender would be the CX300

UM1's not a very good choice for bassheads imo.

Yes, any comments on the Super Fi 3 Studio ($159 from BEST)?

I notice that UM1 is very comfortable, but the bass is not there?

May I know what's this "open" mean?
Is the people near you will hear what music you listening?

Transducer principle: dynamic, open

Does "closed" or "open" affect the good IEM?

Can't get the Jaben promo, my bro wants a IEM w/ mic, and UM1 and Quattro does not have.

Anyway, last i checked, UM1 and SE110 ain't good for bass?

So left with Quattro, UE Super.Fi 3 Studio?

How much are the Super.Fi 4? And how's the SQ?

Any other alternatives too?

NuForce NE7 is OOS and Sen CX series not my type, (the placement of the cables around the neck )

if you want something with a mic... then i think you can forget about getting really good IEMs...
