especially with the flip-flop mod

Super.fi 3 live is definitely good. If they don't fit your ears correctly you can try the new foam tips that are very moldable. I personally have never had the need to wrap my e4c's around my ear.

I second the recommendation of ER6i - grab it and some Shure black foam tips and you've got portable aural (and comfort) bliss. (Well, as much bliss as can be had under $100 )

Seriously though, I think you'll like these IEMs coming from Grado. Similar very up-front sound.

Thanx for all the info.

It's already been suggested but I must throw in my vote for the Yuin PK2's as well. I own the PK1's and they are absolutely the best earbud I've ever found. I consider myself an audiophile by nature, drove across 3 states to buy speakers, dug through the internet to find deals. Yuin products are just amazing for the money. I have Grado SR325i's, Koss Pro4AAT & Yuin PK1's. I find that I use the Yuin product the most. If you or anyone else have any audio questions, I'd be more then willing to respond to PM's. Good Luck on your higher audio quality quest.

Well I thought I would pick up a set of Sony ESMDREX71SLB. I picked them up at a local CircuitCity on sale. They sound ok, I was not expecting much. My main problem is I have really small ears. Even with the smallest cushions it still hurt my ears. Its not that it hurts the inside where the actual speaker sits but the outside where the rest of the "case" sits. So Im going to return them and keep looking. I need to find some thing that comes with like a moldable foam surround or something.

Im liking the look of the ER6i. Anyone have any experience with these? My main issue is my ears are very small and its hard to find a set that fits well. Also any good place to purchase them from.
