ToTheSun! The DT1990's are great!

But don't take my word for it. Take Childish Gambino's.

pez The 58X are a little snug, but I know with some break-in or just over time they'll loosen. I recall that being a pain point of the HD5xx and HD6xx series, but I find them comfy for hours on end. Beyers are definitely one of the most comfy headphones I've had the pleasure of using.

BonzaiTree I switch between my 58X and my Takstar HF580's.

I like the sound of the Takstars more but they are significantly heavier and less comfortable.

I have not been using my DT990's at all lately though even though they're the most comfortable.

pez Technically I think I'm a little overkill in my setup for the HD58X, but I enjoy the sound with them and I've had it for so long anything I switch to would just be unnecessary money spent .

The Pook been running a Hel for a while now, I like it.

none of my headphones really call for it though

pez I know for the most part, the crowd that hangs around this particular thread may not be huge fans of Schiit, but they've released a couple new 'gaming products'. The TL;DR is they've revised one product (Fulla 2) to add a mic input and created a new SKU that also has mic input (just 3.5mm, not a true pre-amp in the way some may be thinking).

Press release:

Product Pages:
Fulla 3: https://www.schiit.com/products/fulla-1
Hel: https://www.schiit.com/products/hel

I'm personally excited for these, though I don't have a good personal use-case for them myself. I'm a fan of the Fulla 2 and think it does particularly well with a few of the popular midrange options (most notably the HD650/HD6XX and HD58X) and the added mic support makes an even better and convenient case to run headphones + modmic or similar product.

pez Yeah admittedly I ditched the IEM game long ago. I still have my pride and joy (UE Triple.fi 10s), but they don't even see much use anymore. I've since gone to wireless earbuds when it comes to on-the-go audio for my phone. The convenience and portability alone make me more okay with the just 'okay' sound quality that they generally provide.

I know Xiaomi had a nice cheaper set that was the flavor-of-the-month for a while, but I've not been good about keeping up with everything.

If you're looking for good budget buds I have the Tin T2 IEM's and I rather like them. Build quality is fantastic and they have removable cables.

I've heard the KZ ZS10 Pro sound even better however but haven't tried them myself, though I do have some cheaper older model KZ IEM's and they're alright.

^ both are about $50 on amazon but you can find them usually cheaper on aliexpress or sites like that. They're both great bang for the buck chi-fi products.
Linsoul has the Tin t2 for $40, the blon bl-03 for $30.

Check the tfz galaxy t2 they sound amazing but a little treble harsh (Can be easily fixed with an EQ)

My tinnitus acts up if I use IEM's which sucks because I'd love to use something a little more discreet when travelling. The sound pressure caused by closed cans is no bueno either.

I have no idea what brought on the tinnitus either because I genuinely don't listen to music that loud. I did rupture my eardrum swimming when I was younger so maybe that has something to do with it.
Ah bummer.
I have tinnitus too, but I clearly not as bad as you--earbuds don't bug me. I know what mine is from though--drumming.

Wondering if there are any all star great bang for the buck models I should be looking at.
I'm usually pretty low budget when it comes to earbuds and these go right in line with that: https://www.amazon.com/Xiaomi-QTEJ02...7004940&sr=8-4
They are very clean sounding and mostly neutral. They maintain clarity with added bass, but aren't the best earbuds I've heard when it comes to total bass quantity. Also they maintain clarity at a significantly lower volume than any other headphone I've tried this with. I also like how they look and fit. Those stems holding the wires are black plastic so that could be more perfect, but that 2nd biggest flaw is pretty far from bad. The biggest flaw is that they have wires, but I don't think any wireless currently has the capability to match their sound.

There are probably earbuds better than these in some ways, but they tend to have glaring flaws in this price range.
