Suggest IEM - Rs.600 Maximum


Hey,
I need IEM' for my iPhone. I don't want to spend more than Rs.600/-, I have been using stock iPhone ones till now. Is it possible to have track change/play pause control on the IEM's like the stock iPhone ones if I happen to increase my budget to 1k? But that is not a requirement as such, only an add-on. I'd like to keep the budget at 600rs. and go for better IEM' than spend more for the control feature and get lower quality ones.

Till now, I have been able to find -

1) JVC Marshmallow
2) Flipkart.com: Philips Headphones Stereo SHE3570BL: Headphone
3) Flipkart.com: Skullcandy D - 2XL In Ear Earphones Stereo X2SPCZ-814: Headphone
4) Buy Sony In-Ear Earphones MDR-EX10LP/P (Pink) at Best Price in India - Also find Specifications, Photos, Features & Reviews
5) Buy Skullcandy 2XL In-ear Earphone (Rasta) X2SPBZ-34 at Best Price in India - Also find Specifications, Photos, Features & Reviews

Thanks in advance,
Kauffmann

Re: Suggest IEM - Rs.600 Maximum

Is anyone still selling the JVC Marshmallows for 550 - 600? Even 600! Lynx has them listen about 1k and I don't want to order from them.

@SidK!! , which SkullCandy ones are you referring to? I have two up in the list.

Buygamingstuff has them for Rs.580/- shipped too.

Thanks for the website, it looks great @1Sarath. Between JVC and PL-11, which one would you recommend? They're both priced similarly.

Marshmallows are built very tough.. The pl11s are delicate.

I'm using the marshmallows right now while working out and they have been yanked, pulled and stretched in all ways.

The foam tips of the marshmallows provide better isolation and get kinda molded according to the shape of your ear canal..

The wire length of the marshmallows is shorter so they you will have difficulty using them on a desktop PC.. Otherwise the length is decent enough to not hang loose.

The marshmallows have a balanced audio output.. So you can play around with your eq.. Pl11s are bass heavy (??) IIRC..

(begun the clone war has)

Re: Suggest IEM - Rs.600 Maximum

And how do the JVC Marshmallow compare to Audio Technica CK101 - Audio-Technica - Microphones, headphones, wireless microphone systems, noise-cancelling headphones & more : Singapore - English

---------- Post added at 09:52 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:50 PM ----------

@DeXterboygenius - Thanks for the elaborative post mate! I think I'll go for the Marshmallow'. I don't plug in my earphones to the computer, so shouldn't be a hassle and I don't like heavy bass either. Thanks again mate!

PS: Why can't I tag you in the post?

^Second that

Do check though, I've heard (read somewhere actually) that the JVC's will pretty much go taut if you are tall, so if you plan on going jogging with em, they are probably bound to come off. Can anyone confirm this fact?

And what about the EP630's wouldn't they come into the picture?

Re: Suggest IEM - Rs.600 Maximum

Guys, i don't know about other user experiences, but have owned the pl11's since a year, traveling, everyday from Panvel to Malad, heavy train traffic, (i change 3 trains and travel for about 2 hours, each way) and the Pl11's have lived upto all that beating.. And Sound Superb with plenty Bass and Sparkling trebles with good vocals, although lacking the sound stage (Don't expect that from this budget)...

Bought them from, Prime abgb, for Just 500Bux Shipped and boy o boy, they sound great... I use them with my ipod or cell phone.. And, on an ipod they prove themselves much valuable! Much worhty than the price tag they come at!

i love the sound and i suggest you to audition, the earphones and then decide... Hint: Find a Pristine Note Store

I Back the Pl11's no matter what other's say or have heard.. I personally use them extensively, and haven't had a single problem whatsoever.. Totally reccommendddddd....
