    Well, I'm looking to -eventually- get new in ear buds. I'm currently using NuForce NE-6's and I've absolutely loved them, but my right bud, is starting to go out. These were my first pairs of better earbuds outside of my sennheiser cx300's. I'm a very bass heavy listener and the Sennheisers did not provide as I would have liked. Reading the reviews of the Head Direct's it seems they probably won't give me the bass I want, but they're in my price range. Anywhere from $80-100

    I would like some opinions on IEM's within that range. help!

    if u like bass, try finding a deal for sennheiser ie6 ie7 or klipsch s4
    RE-0 is not bass heavy by any standard.

    There may be some that have more bass or better mids or whatever, but everyone seems to always come back to saying the Klipsch S4's are a good buy.

    So I guess I'll jump on that bandwagon. I kinda want to get the new White S4i's.

    Though, there are also the Sony EX-300's, which I currently have, (the regular ones are $80 and the one's with the remote are $100. The regular ones are like $40 on amazon.com, and last I checked the ones with remote were $80 on amazon.com.) They have excellent sound quality, and a lot of bass. The highs are slightly louder than everything else, but after a small while you get used to it, and other headphones sound muffled afterward in comparison, (at least they do to me.) Also, the bass is tightly wound, but it isn't just a monotone oomph. It's very dynamic and you know it's there. Instead of overpowering the quality sound, is contemplates it. Well, at least if it's digitally produced bass. REAL bass from instruments is quite powerful and you'd need the bass reducer EQ. So not without it's slight problems.

    S4's - $79: http://www.amazon.com/Klipsch-IMAGE-S4-Noise-Isolating-Headphones/dp/B001V9LPT4/

    S4i's - $99: http://www.amazon.com/Klipsch-S4i-Premium-Noise-Isolating-3-Button/dp/B00264GYMG/

    MDR-EX300's - $44.95: http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MDR-EX300-BLK-Vertical-Headphones/dp/B001RB24PK/

    DR-EX300iP's - $78.01: http://www.amazon.com/Sony-DREX300iP-Headphones/dp/B00385XU7Y/

    (Prices from the official Amazon.com seller and shipper, not 3rd party.)

    So there, I'd suggest these 4. (2, really.) And both come in white or black flavors. Like I said, I like those white S4i's.
