What do you guys think about using IEMs for listening to music? Also does anyone listen to music mainly by speakers?
>>
*through speakers
>>
It's cans or die for me, but I've never owned a good set of IEMs.
>>
I like IEMs i use them a lot for music in the go. I have yet to find a pair that are spectacular, other than Meelectronics.
I like skullcandy a lot tbqh.
>>
Speakers>iem>headphones

That's just how it is

I can't stand listening to music outside in the city on anything but IEMs.

My only advice is don't assume high-end/expensive ones are necessarily more durable than cheap ones.
>>
I have a pair of ATH IM02 that I do all my listening on.

I have a pair of cheap laptop speakers, and the IM02 just knocks them out
>>
>>60181952
OP here. I own a RE-400 myself and find them amazing for $70. They're very fragile though
>>
Do you guys use EQ for your IEMs? I own a very (very) balanced one and I'm wondering if people usually use EQs to boost specific prefered areas of the sound spectre.
>>
>>60181826
I listen to a lot of music through speakers. They are bookshelf stereo speakers by Bowers & Wilkins. My cans (HD 650) definitely are more detailed though and I prefer them when I am listening to something for the first time.
>>
>>60182284
What model is it
>>
>>60182366
HifiMan RE-400
>>
I have some Shure SE215's that I like quite a bit. The first nice IEM's I've bought. Also have the Audio Technica M50's, which are also nice and have lasted me for 4 years now.

>skullcandy
I've hated every pair of skullcandy I've ever used.
>>
full size cans are better of course, but iems are GOAT for isolation and can sound pretty decent with some crossfeed
>>
>>60182448
I only like skullcandy because they're decent for the $20 price and they are easy to find locally.
Spending over $30 for skullcandies would be ridiculous because they dont even last that long
>>
I use IEMs.
I do use speakers too.
>>
Which is better: IEMs, cans or speakers? I think IEMs are more detailed and I like it but they are not so strong soundstage wise
>>
>>60182480
You can get Sennheisers or Xiaomi Pistons V3 for that price if you shop around a bit.
>>
>>60182480
35 for some soundmagic e10, awesome sound!
No skullcandy crap
