What's a good brand or set up to get my feet wet beyond the 10 dollar earbuds? Say around 100 bucks?
Chifi or Shure SE215.

Sound accuracy is a big thing, but really unless you already know all of the reasons and are someone who could answer your question far better than I can these are not for you, and the benefits of them would be lost on you. For the vast majority of people, they would not be able to tell the difference between a $300 and $3000 headset when it comes to the subtle nuances between how they sound. It is something you need to really build up knowledge and an ear for it to be able to get any benefit and it has greatly diminishing returns.

Sometimes with really nice headphones like this, the average person may actually think they don't sound that great because they are expecting something different since the intent of these is to represent the sound as accurately as it was intended by the person that created it. Taking a sound system and bumping up the volume on a subwoofer for instance may make it sound better for a lot of people, but that makes it less accurate compared to the original intent and this comes to personal preference and what you are looking for.

It isn't wrong to not be able to appreciate or notice these things and it isn't wrong to enjoy something different as well.

Another more universal comparison would by a TV, for the average person they wouldn't notice color accuracy in a TV and often people prefer features that kind of objectively make things look worse. Good examples of this could be people turning saturation up way too high so that "colors pop and look vibrant" but for a videophile, it looks atrocious. Another would be turning on motion smoothing or high framerate options on TVs that add the soap opera effect which some feel looks good, but for others like myself it looks really bad and causes video artifact issues and other issues that make the picture quality objectively worse, but those people don't notice/care about those things so they feel it is an improvement.

TLDR; If you don't know why you need these already, they aren't going to be for you.
This is well-written. I think people don't have a strong grasp of how time and experience changes your tastes and senses. If you don't have a large body of reference, you won't be able to appreciate subtle details of high-end things. Like with wine. Most people would say that a $20 bottle and a $1000 bottle are the same. But if you've been drinking wine for 40 years and love wine and have a ton of experience then you might really appreciate a $1000 bottle. Same with cigars, movies, art, food. Anything really. Cars. Nascar. Soccer. It isn't a negative to not have experience with something and people shouldn't view it as an insult. It is just a matter of time and interest.

easiest example is the difference between land lover and toyota rav 4. both are cars and both are 4x4 suv's.. why the $60-70k difference? some may say brand name, some may say build, some may say features, materials prestige or 20 other things someone may say for it or against it.


imo, these are some of the very best earphones out there at any price point. well made, comfortable, and great sounding.
lol "land lover" nod

You do realize that some of us on Slickdeals are $15/hr minimum wage workers scraping by, right?
My father always told me never to count other people's money. I think the concept applies here as well.

Way too expensive for earbud style headphones, even with sale price.
Seriously, I was about to buy these, then I realized they give them out for free on the airplane.

You could pick any number out of your butt for a product as its MSRP, and then chop 80% off and put it on SD and people will flock to it. These mediocre ear buds cost the exact same amount of money to produce in China as the $2 ear buds. Only difference is someone over in China is laughing at the high price they put on them so they could have giant sales.

I know right...I was going to buy an OLED but then found a TCL for 1/10th of the cost.
I almost bought a lexus until I found much cheaper options...
I was going to buy an iphone and found that they give away free flip phones with tracfone.

So I have Audeze iSine 20s that I absolutely love. The problem is that they stick out a ton and are huge. They aren't very comfortable to wear. Anyone know how these compare to the iSines? I know it isn't the same technology. Any help would be appreciated.
