IEM with a Bang for House/Techno/Trance

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Exactly what the title says, I currently run a Sansa Fuze with Klipsch Image S4s and after a few months of listening to them I became displeased.
They are bright IEMs which sound amazing when listening to trance but lack considerable Bass. sorta disappointing to have to EQ the bass +15 dB to make it a little more enjoyable when listening to House and Techno.

so I am looking to for an IEM with bright sound signature and alot of Bass!!
I mainly use them for working out and the tunes is what gets me pumped so i like to make the best of it.

Budget $120:devil:

Brainwavz M2? They seem fairly bassy to me, plus they come with over ear attachments which are very nice for working out, as I have used them for doing that myself.

Klipsch S4..lack bass..WHAT!?

Are you sure you are getting a good seal with them? If you ain't, which I suspect, the bass will suffer.

i always maintain a good seal, but i feel like I am not getting enough bass perhaps I am just an undeclared bass head. I love clubbing so maybe that gives an idea how I like my bass.

My thoughts exactly. I have the same ones and after about three months needed to replace the gel for a better seal. Replaced with good foam tips and love the difference.

The holy grail of IEMs

Read this and find what suits your sound signature preference, for me its slightly bassy with slightly absolutely no sibilance.

EDIT: well seems you dont need the linky, but yes seal makes a major difference, and the S4s are one of the bassier ones around, others include Meelectonics M31, V-moda (anyone really), crappy Skullcandies, and Monster Turbine
