    Hi there!

    I am thinking about buying myself some new in ear headphones.

    I currently own a 4 year old pair of creative Ep-635 (which I must say I always liked). They are coming apart right now and so want to buy some new headphones.

    I listen to things such as DreamTheater, Opeth, Meshuggah, Aggaloch, Symphony X, Necrophagist, Kamelot, etc... Just to give you an idea of the kind of sound I pour into my ears.

    Bearing this in mind, what in ear headphones (below 80£) would you advise me to buy?

    P.S. I was thinking about the Beyerdynamic DTX101ie.

    Cheers!

    (I have posted this on another forum section, but this is likely the best place to ask)

    Beyerdynamic would be great. I own 3 of their headphones and love them.

    These Beyers are a great in-ear, they have a warm and comfortable feel which means you can listen to aggressive music for extwended periods without getting fatigued. If you were less of a basshead and wanted a slightly more delicate and detailed feel these are also worth looking at -

    DTX101 are warmer with bigger bass SE215 are slightly less warm with a more balanced bass end and lusher slightly more forward mids.

    Hope that helps:)
