Hi,

I just have ordered the AK70. Now I have a big hesitation on the earphones that will go with it. I would like to buy in-ear headphones that will allow to get the best out of the AK70. I have shortlisted some in-ear: Audeze iSine 10, RHA T20, 1More E1001, Sennheiser Momentum. I know that they aren't at the same price tag, but I don't care as long as the sound is good and they are durable. I listen a lot to Jazz and vocals, so the mid and bass should be good. I am particularly curious about the Audeze which are the first in-ear Planar Magnetic. Any recommendation?

Many thanks

You should repost this in headphone subsection to get more replies.

For what it's worth I use the E1001. Excellent package for the money that will outperform many dearer models. Never heard the Audezebut for planar magnetic I would stick with on or over ears. Start with the 1001's as they might save you a lot of money in the long run.

If money is no object then i highly recommend the Westone W80.

I own a pair and they are amazing. They cost £1200 and to my ears are worth every penny.

If you want something cheaper then I also recommend the Earsonices SM3 V2.
