Hey guys, my 6 months old Piston 3 died today, right ear is dead. I'm royally pi$$ed :-x

I need to get a pair of IEMs asap. My budget it 2.5k. 3k for flipkart as I have a coupon.

I need clear sound, a bit of bass is required but it shouldn't drown the sound.

Suggest away, bonus points for flipkart links.

I has used Soundmagic E10, E30 and PL30 before, I need sound that can match upto them.

Even I'm on the same boat.. Don't know which iem to buy... Vsonic ones were listed at~ 2500 before tax, before they went out of stock back in June.. Now they're at 2800 with 3200 checkout price.

I've used signature c12..they are fine but I think that e10 is par with them.. So not worth over cheaper e10.

Are Vsonic earphones so good? I mean to ask will you hear a difference from Piston without any portable dac.

GR07 is a great one...one of the best in the low end segment!

Also have a look at M6 pro, it has a good review comment which is close to 3k...

Check Brainwavz M1. I am using them for more than 1 year and it's good. Prior to it, I has used soundmagic pl30 and I can say M1 is better than that. It's available for 2,999 on company's official website.

As much as I wanted to go for VSonic I couldn't afford the VSD5 which were my dream IEM, so I went for the SM E80, review coming up soon:

Comply foam tips are amazing, from now on it's comply all the way, medium tips have an amazing fit, it blocks upto 80% of external sound and gives the best fit possible.

Nice.. You bought e80, for how much you got them for?

Can you tell, why you choose these over vsonic vsd3s?.. I'm in conundrum to which one to go for.

I got them for 3k from fk. Four reasons why I chose them.

1. Soundmagic quality, I have been using SM for years now. PL30, PL50, E10 all have lived upto to their expectations. So SM has a big brand value to me compared to VSonic.

2. After sales support, SM provides one year warranty and its imported by Acro engineering. That means I can get warranty locally unlike VSonic. After sales support is a big criteria for me.

3. Sound quality is excellent, its very neutral, something I crave in a headphone. I am not sure about VSD3. VSD5 is another matter but out of my budget.

4. I had a 500/- coupon for flipkart, I had to use that, VSonic is not available in flipkart and that hifinage website looked extremely shoddy and I was a bit skeptical about their support.

I am not sure whether I made the correct choice by going for SM E80 compared to VSD3 but so far the E80 has lived upto my expectations, its like a mini M50X :lol:

Full review up tomorrow.

Go here: Comply? Foam Tips - Replacement Earphone Tips

Use the comply tip finder link on top.

For XB90X I found these tips:

These are Series 200.

Now search for Comply 200 in online retail sites.

Example:

eBay

http://www.flipkart.com/search?q=comply+200&as=off&as-show=off&otracker=start

In the comply website look at different categories, sizes and also look for youtube videos. I find the medium to be best for me.
