Default Sennheiser HD25 vs IEM's?

Right im ready to fork 500 on custom fit ACS T2 IEM's this is like the UK of ultimate ears, duel driver custom moulded mointors..

But i had a small try of some HD 25-1 II the DJ style ones and they seemed good isolation and sound in the mixing booth.

But will they be just as decent for drumming. I just wondered if it was worth saving 350, and get the cans over the IE's.

So which ones should i get? I dont really have the need to hide my cans yet as i dont gig. I just wanted the best ear protection and sounds that are avalible for me.

Thanks audioholics!

I use UE5's for drumming and they provide plenty of protection and sound very good for casual music listening. I also have the UE11 pro's and they are unbelievable. They pick-up every musical detail possible. I prefer the iem's for the simple fact that you don't have to readjust them when rocking out. UE also has the UE18pros with six drivers. I can't believe they can shove all those drivers in something that small. Keep in mind that unless you have a very dedicated roadie you'll be the one cleaning out all that ear wax. They do require some up keep.

Just so you guys know, if u were interested. I got the HD25 mk2 headphones for 100 and man they are AMAZING! easily good enuff to hold of getting expensive IEM's until your in live band sitations and want descrete ear pieces.

So saved myself 400 and got quality i was after. Atleast till i start gigging.
