Guess there are no lads here in her majesty's service eh?

I have narrowed it down to this:

Phonak Audéo Perfect Bass 012 - £80.00
Beyer Dynamnics DTX101 iE - £65.99
Sennheiser IE 6 - £70 ( are these over the ear only?)
Klipsch Image S4 -£40.0
Brainwavz M3 - £55
Head Direct HiFiMAN RE-ZERO Limited Edition - £70

Suggestions please

Cheers!

Not too many open style IEMs on the market but earbuds are more open. I tested out the M31s from MEElectronics and they're open but due to some of the cons I moved on. You might want to look over dfkt's list here to see if any strike your interest and I'm sure others will chime in as you define the SQ you want better. I'm currently using the A151s with my Clip Zip and they're nice for the price but you might want something with ear guides or over the ear style for sports, although I've worn the A151s actively without issue, I've read some have found it difficult (thus the ear guide recommendation) ....

Edit: of the one's you just mentioned, I'd look seriously at the PFEs, good luck with the choosing and IIRC they come with ear guides

The vultures are circling in on the PFE's. I checked a few unboxings, but ear guides are missing..... will these require an amp?

Cheers!

I am getting confused perhaps.

1) Amazon UK : Phonak Audéo Perfect Bass Earphones 012 Colour Black
- Phonak Audéo PFE In-Ear Monitor Earphones
- Silicone ear tips - 3 pairs (1 pair S, 1 pair M, 1 pair L)

2) Audeoworld : Audéo PFE 012
- Phonak Audéo PFE In-Ear Monitor Earphones
- Silicone ear tips - 3 pairs (1 pair S, 1 pair M, 1 pair L)
- Free 8 acoustic filters.

Now amazon is 10 quid cheaper than audeo world, but what are these filters ? Any reason i should go with either ? Or are these two different head sets.

Cheers!

filters are for you to adjust the frequency response to your individual listening taste.

I ordered the PFEs from amazon myself a few days ago, haven't received them yet tho.

Not sure about those free filters. It says worth £23.90 and looking at their other products you get 8 green filters for that price, But in the picture it looks like there is grey and black filters also...

Would also like to know what kinda filters are included because i planned on ordering grey filters anyway.. Might cancel my amazon order if the grey filters are included. Anyone know?
