    Hey guys
    I'm looking for a new IEM since my XB30 died. It should have decent treble and bass not too much of either and it would be nice if it had a mic.
    I am considering the following options:
    XB55
    RHA MA390
    Smokin Bud 2 (only because of the mic)

    If there are any other models I should know about, please tell me. It'd be great if they had tangle free cords and decent noise isolation.(Delhi is noisy)

    RHA MA390 isn't very clear. RHA MA350 was faaaaaar better in terms of SQ. I have used both.
    Prior to RHA I had xb90. I liked ma 350,coming from XB90... But can't say the same about 390u.

    Check sound magic.

    Should I buy from brand like KZ, Vsonic or stick to the popular brands?
    Also, can you recommend any models I should look into?
    I have used the E10C and I found it a bit too clear not that I am into too much bass but it sounded kinda flat. What about the PL30+c?
    What about 1More Piston? I hear they are good.

    EDIT: I've been looking into some Brainwavz models and I think the reviews are okay. What do you think about S0?

    I have small ears and have had issues with the ATE being too big. The ATE's sound wasnt something I liked but this isnt something I am using to compare. i am just worried that these will come off easy.

    Well If ATE is not suitable for you then it's definitely not going to work...Ignore Above post.

    Should I go for Brainwavz S0, XB55 or Soundmagic PL30+C

    EDIT: How about Signature Acoustics C-12 Version 2?

    SA is a bit cleaner than ATE and has better bass. It's comfortable as well.
    XB55 is pretty good too.

    PL-30 was something I had under consideration while buying my recent IEMs, after I broke my XB90.
    My vote goes for Sony.
