AKG K390NC confirm can work with my htc one? where to find it?
Didn't like the AKG K390NC. The black box is bulky. Takes AA battery bad design.

I haven't heard the EPH-100 so no comment. Among the SE215, GR07 and MG7 my favorite is GR07. In short: If you want bass, go for MG7. If you want an all rounder with great clarity and soundstage with slightly warm signature get GR07. SE215 just falls short in almost every aspect by GR07 (except maybe bass impact, but not bass quality). Not to mention SE215 has durability issues (mostly cable).
Thanks for the insight, bro.
Is there anyone who is able to compare the GR07 with the EPH-100?

Do you need a microphone function that works with the S3?
You can try out the Astello Radiance and also the Dunu Trident which is slightly over $50
I do not need mic and volume control.
Any other recommendations? I was thinking of Sony or audio technica.

Thanks for all the recommendations nevertheless

You can browse head-fi...

At that price I'd still recommend Dunu Trident.

I have, but there are many different opinions on both with no general direction of which is the better. I am leaning towards the EPH-100 for it's heavier bass as compared to the gr07.

i have the eph-100.

my genre of songs : pop, rock, rnb, electronic, vocal and indie.

and they handle these genre quite well to me.
but take our words with only a little weight.
end of the day, i suggest get a few models that you are interested in, go try it out.
eph-100 can be found at digi lifestyle, if you want to compare all, i would say go to plaza sing, try the gr07 and se215, then go katong(take bus very fast reach) try eph-100. not sure about the mg7 though.

Thanks for the tip, silvernoy. I've reserved the EPH-100 from DG Lifestyle. Unfortunately, I have to wait 2 weeks for the stocks to come in

VSonic GR07. Very good all rounder, not bass heavy but still has good quality bass for the price.



TDK EB950/Sunrise Xcape IE? Very highly rated by ClieOS (In Ear Matters: The List) . I found them very good for the price as well. Slightly above SGD100 though. $110 maybe?

And for PMP with lossless below 100 hands down is Sansa Clip+. Cannot find a better player out there with the price.
thanks for the recommendations. possible to find one below 100 thats Balanced? And what's the diff between fuse, clip and clip+?

Fuze got line out, but more ex cause discontinued alr.

Clip is discontinued and obsolete, completely replaced by Clip+ and Clip Zip

And Clip+ well.. Is a good, cheap player, if really wanna nitpick the only cons I find are the quite short battery life and lack of line out (not like I'm using an amp atm)
