edit - How are the Denon AH-C551's ??

e2 - upon reflection, many reviews have mention the SE210's from Shure to be rather un-involving and not-so-hot.. hmmm...


i have the c551k's and i love them. more than i ever loved the super.fi 3's that's for sure. super light, i step on these things all the time and they keep going

some kramer modded FX66s have never served me wrong... but I'm sure they're probably not what you're looking for I'd look at the Ultimate ear offerings, and see what you come up with... or super.fi's possibly... look on audiogon/headfi for some good used deals... and failing those look at some yuins...

I learnt the error of my ways some time ago. Only now i have money, am i finally getting rid of my SC's.

Anyways, guys, i'm stuck with my decidings.. I've narrowed it down to six pairs:

Shure SE210's

Shure SE110's - Seems a little silly to even add these to the list, seeing as i'm willing to for out for the next model up.

Ultimate Ears Super.fi 3

Audio-Technica ATH-CK7

Denon AH-C551

Etymotic ER-6i

And i can get no further. Any personal experiences with any of these models anyone? Any good/bad points? I remember S1rrah's dealings with Shure, and their excellent customer service, which draws me towards them a little..

Help!

Also look into some of the lower-priced custom offerings, like the Super Freqs, or Livewires.

It's the question we always ask? What are you going to listen too? 3 of those earbuds listed are dramatically different. i say run, not walk, far far away from the super.fi's. i can't stress enough how much i hated them.

Listen to all sorts really, rap, hiphop, punk, metal, some dance, swing blues everything really, save for classical and jazz.

Super.Fi's are out. I'm still looking toward the SE210's.
post #4230 of 38343
IIRC the Super.fi 5 pro and my old E4c sounded pretty similar in terms of sound quality, but the UE had too much bass for my taste.

My livewires should be here in a couple of weeks, looking forward to a neutral sounding IEM (hopefully).

P.S.
Epic facepalm at Skullcandies, maybe we can open a Skullcandy corner like how we have the Bose corner.

Edit: I'm blind, we already have a Skullcandy corner...
