Default Any help to narrow it down?

Thanks to all who posted and/or sent me a PM. I have read up and it seems that for a first pair of IEM's (and really, first pair of non-stock earphones and a new MP3 user), the price range of $50 and under ought to be adequate.

I see sales for the Ety 6i's and then a little more gets the V-moda Vibes. But then I open a whole new world when I go $80.

So, here are some I have read up and the buzz is good:

The JVC Marshmellows
V-Moda Bass Freq
EP630's
Sennheiser 300 CX (with shipping, runs about $55)

I want to make sure I can go to bed with them and not wake my wife up. Will cut the yard with them and run a bit on the road to the park (not a particularly busy road). I dont like heavy bass at all, and turn the treble up a bit more than I do a bass on a EQ setting.

I have the JVC's...There great for the 20 spot, but I have the Senn CX-300 on order.
I like the JVC's, but that will probably change when the CX-300's arrive.

hmm..if you can i would get the Etys as ive found they have some of the best isolation around, but i dont have any experiance with those V-Modas, or the Sennheisers.

cheers

I hope I scored a deal. Got some Shure e2c's from a guy at headfi for $30 shipped and I can buy some new foamies for like $15. Whaddya think about these IEM, the isolation and sound quality factors, and the price I paid.

if they are in good condition you got a pretty good deal, IMO they are decent IEMs, not as pleseant to listen too as ety's but good none the less.

cheers

The Shures have a better rep and also have a very nice case to keep them in.
They are easy to clean and I think they come with lots of tools and different ear pieces.

You say that you are not a bass head and from what I have read they should hit the spot.

Let us know how you get on with them.

Yeah, if I liked bass, given the price, id have gone with V-Moda Bass Freq. I dont know if I am getting the case that the Shure's come with, as the paypal fees and shipping is on the guy I bought them from, so that makes them like $25. I do need to get some foamies and maybe the sleeves (he sent a pair of smalls and I know that my ears are not large but maybe Id need the mediums)
