    In-Ear Headphones
    I've been looking to buy a good pair of in-ear headphones (preferably $100 or less).

    The problem for me is that the in-ear headphone market seems to be dominated right now with bass-heavy headphones. I can't stand bass-heavy headphones because they destroy the quality of the type of music I enjoy listening too.

    I was hoping I could find some help here in locating a decent pair of in-ear headphones that aren't bass-heavy.

    Right now I've been leaning towards these: Maximo Products / Headsets / iP-HS5

    (The reviews for those I have found have stated that they have a good low, mid, and high range balance)

    So, if anyone here has any recommendations, I would love to hear them. Thank you for your help.

    Altec Lansing is a third party manufacturer for Ultimate Ears as well as Etymotic. I got a pair of their iM616's from Amazon last year on sale for about $40. Best deal ever. I gave them to my cousin, but have since gotten a different pair, which are of the UE super.fi 3 type and they're just as good, if not slightly better to my ears. In fact, they have lowered the price on them :

    Amazon.com: Altec Lansing UHP336 Snugfit In-ear Earphone: Electronics


    And here are the Etymotic ones: Amazon.com: Altec Lansing inMotion iM616 Headphones: Electronics
    Great deal I'd hop on. The only thing I'd change is the ear tips. I prefer foam as they don't grate on your ears after extended periods of time. Lots of third party foam ear tips out there.

    P.S. You can always visit www.head-fi.org for tons more info on the topic. Just beware..... your wallet may not be safe there !
