Hi all,

well I'm new member and new to headphones/sound quality. I can say I'm average iPod user so far using Apple earphones, or sometimes Sony - Clip-On In-Ear MDR-J10.

Did little research yesterday (2 hours)and would like to have something better.

I would like to buy isolation Earbuds/IEM under $60 with:

- Impedance < than 20 ohms

- Sensitivity > 106dB/mW

Would like to hear from you guys about possible options, with your Sound quality opinions.

Thank you very much in advance,

P.S> Feel free to refer to any web site, or search with my criteria

I'm disregarding your specifications for these recommendations as they aren't of any importance beyond the question "can my portable player drive these headphones" The following recommendations all can be easily driven by any portable player without any issues.

In order of price from low to high:

1.DENON AH-C452k ,
2.Maximo iMetal iM590,
3. Etymotic ER-6i Black,

My Ultimate choice would be the etymotics, but thery are slightly outside of your price range.They have the highest amount of noise attenuation, and highest sound quality.

If you absoluteley need to stay inside of $60 then go with the maximos for a nuetral sound and the dennons if you like a little emphasis on the bass.

I've had some good experiences with Sennheiser CX-300 II in-ear buds. I use them at work where it usually is very noisy.
