Default IEMs for SGP5 under $50

So I'm getting extra cash and I need to upgrade my Klipsch Image S3 IEMs,which I love but they are basically breaking,the housing literally but the cord is pretty much fine,I did take really good care of them during the one year I've owned them so far but I also want to try different ones and give these ones a break.

I mostly prefer a balanced sound signature so I can EQ the hell out of it for my liking.

So far on my shopping cart I have these in mind:

Brainwavz Alpha
Brainwavz Beta
MEElectronics M9
JVC HAFXC51
SoundMagic E10
SoundMagic E30
Wicked Jaw Breaker WI-2101

Anything else I should keep in mind? I'm mostly a basshead and going to use PowerAMP and its bass boost settings with the sets that I buy.

I like my SoundMagic E10s. with the poweramp EQing they have good bass for me. I have been curious about those JVCs for a while too.

I decided to order a pair of Soundmagic E10's and MEElectronics M16 and M9 today. I should get them on the 27th,I'm still using my trial of Amazon Prime so I got the free 2 day shipping My trial ends on the 28th though,so its better to buy now than later lol

EDIT:Just ordered these three as well

XePort 3010-2
XePort 5010-8
XePort 7010-9


Looking forward to listening to all 6 of these babies

I'm not good at headphone reviews but I'll try at least lol

Although I asked for recommendations under $50,the purpose of me doing that is for me to buy multiple pairs at once

Xeport is pretty much getting rid of stock and these sets sound alot better than their $10-$20 price point would have people believe,according to what I'm gathering from Head-Fi so I'm pretty confident about my purchase.

Do you have a link to the Xeports? You've piqued my interest.

You're welcome.

I just received the MEElectronics M9's today and the first thing I noticed while listening to them out of the box is that the soundstage is definitely alot wider than my Klipsch Image S3's which have a V shaped soundstage,these M9's sound like they are on full blast.They make alot of my music sound like the artist is screaming into my ear lol

Just received the SoundMagic E10's and Meelectronics M16's today. The Xeport's won't come till sometime next week but I'm giving the E10's my attention tonight,so far I'm enjoying them. The main reason I like My Klipsch S3's is because they are great for music that doesn't have alot of bass,they are more for light music,nothing heavy. I'll see how the E10's compare to them since they are both in the same price point at around $30.

HSN just sent me a set of the XePort 5010-8, and the SQ is damn GREAT!!! Plus, I got a set of nice JVC IEM's from him as well (I can't remember what the model is ATM),...nice sounding - but the XePorts sound better IMO.

Those are the JVC HA-FXC50B, TDS. I felt that all of the XePort models sounded better, too. Have you had a chance to play around with the bass dials on those XePorts, yet?

I just got all 3 of the Xeport series in the mail today and I am loving ALL 3 of themEven the lowest 3010 has great bass and clarity out of the box I didn't expect to like the 3010's out of the box like this. The 5010's are even better and the 7010's excel in clarity but bass isn't a disappointment in those either,the 3010,5010 and 7010 series is definitely a huge STEAL at the $10-$20 price range they are at and are much better than the Meelectronics. I'm going to send back the Meelectronics M16 since I can't stand them lol Out of the box I didn't like them and I still don't. The Xeport series and Soundmagic E10's are definitely my favorites now.

I enjoyed all of the XePorts, too, but I felt the SoundMAGIC E10s blew my 7010s away.

as an E10 owner I appreciate the feedback. I don't feel the need to pick up the xeport right now.
