    So I have a choice between 2 IEM's.
    • Shure SE530 (@£210 without PTH, £230 with PTH)
    • Klipsch X10 (@170)

    For users that own both, please give me some info about what bass, mid range, and treble is like. Do they have sibilance? Do you think the PTH is worth it? Questions I need answered to make my final purchase.

    I am not buying anything Bose... I do not want anything on ear and I much prefer makes such as Klipsch or Shure.

    why people doesn't realize that bose are overpriced? they just are middle range but effing expensive .

    Get the Shure mate. Shure is very balanced between quality and price.

    I own a model of the Shure's that just got discontinued. They are the best headphones I have ever owned. I wanted them so I wouldn't have to play the music loud but still be able to hear every aspect of it and these get the job done. When or if they go I will be sure to buy another model by Shure.
