Wow, I used to think my Shure E2C's were something special...then I found this thread

This may be a stupid question, but is there really a big diffrence between $100 range earbuds and $300 range earbuds or earbuds with an amp? I know when I moved from my Sony MDX-71's (I think thats the right number...they were $50) up to my E2C's the change was incredible. Iv been totally addicted to them for a year now.

The first jump to the ~$100 range is probably the biggest, it's diminishing returns from then on. I don't have much experience with the ~$300 IEM bracket, but from what I remember the E2C's biggest flaw was a lack of bass. You might be able to find a Shure SE530 for around $300 or a little above.. there's also Ultimate Ears Triple.Fi 10's, Sleek SA6's, and a few others.

Edit: However, I have to say, audio is an addiction and I'd recommend that if you're truly happy with your E2Cs, you stick with them... protect your wallet...

haha, i love that

but i think the concept of IEM's and amps are a little silly, to me IEM's are the ultra portable section, but if you desire that sound quality on a plane/hiking/ working out/ i guess a portable amp is reasonable. i tried the line of higher shures when i use to work at an electronics store, and to be honest, the sound was not leaps and bounds like nam said from 20$ earbuds to 100$ earbuds. anything past 200$ to me, is for specific listening, and something that defies the purpose of IEM/Buds [portability]. i liked the e2c's and the old e3c's were better but not a leaps.

The 0404 came today.

It sounds fantastic even with HD555s, but anything I should configure on the unit itself? Grado SR225s on the way within a week or so.
