NCIX has the Sennheiser IE60's for $129.

I ended up buying them since they sold out of the IE80's.

same question?
I ordered two of them, and will return one of them after I test out the sound quality of both.

I have the Klipsch S4 i got when they were on sale for $30…hate em. Bulky, weird fit, mediocre sound.

Considering purchasing some new ones, maybe the monster lil jamz or something...

Pretty bad reviews on Amazon.

I have a pair, and they're phenomenal. Super comfortable, and great sound, especially if you can get proper isolation - I'm using Complys with them. If you read those reviews, it looks like they were written by idiots. See the professional reviews. I just bought another pair. 2 year Klipsch warranty, as well. The only issue is the microphonics can be an issue with the flat cables - though that disappears with the Comply foams.

You want to trade Klipsch for Monster? The S4s have been extremely well reviewed for fit and sound for $$; the only common complaint is with the durability of the product.

same question?...and also, about Sennheiser mm55i ,i can't google out this set....i can't find this model in Sennheiser's website neither...what's the difference between mm55i and mm70i. In additional, what's the difference between Klipsch X7i and X10i。。It's said that X7i is new,and X10i is not in production?

Hey I just realized recently that the sony balanced armature series are on sale at future shop:
http://www.futureshop.ca/Search/SearchR ... ecure=True
What has happened? Sony rarely gives this big of a sale, and I think it's only at future shop too.

Are they any good? Reviews on amazon say they're crap, but I think it's mostly because of the price. At 40 or 60 it's a different story...

I'm trying to decide whether to get the sony or this sennheiser:

some help would be gladly appreciated

Sony is probably phasing out the current xba series which is why the discount. (FS has Sony Z1050 MP3 player at $130 which is an excellent deal if you care about the sound and don't mind its bulkiness)
As for the review, go check head-fi for more proper reviews on sound quality. Amazon is good for general user experience such as build quality and comfort but I wouldn't trust that for more specialized review.

Oh those are good prices for the sony XBAs. I got XBA3s which I really like but for $40, XBA1s might be good IEMs at that price.

Decided to pick up the Sony XBA-2 from FS, crazy how big the markup on earphones as they once retailed for $199.
