    In ear headphones for rock like Tool/Pearl Jam £50-150? Shure 425?

    Hey all

    I listen to all types of rock, mainly listen to stuff like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Mars Volta, Porcpine Tree and 90s alt rock. All in FLAC of course.

    From my research it appears the Shure SE425 would be a good choice. I'm in the £50-150 pound bracket. Willing to go more if its REALLY worth it. The SE 535 are just ridiculously more expensive here in the UK.

    Not sure if there is anything else I should consider?

    Or any anyone tell me what I really need in terms of like mid ranges, treble etc?

    Thanks for your time and any help.

    If your price range is going to be £50 - £150 then the Shure SE315 will be a good choice. They give great isolation and sound quality - just make sure you get a good seal. They come with a number of different ear tips so that shouldn't be a problem :)
