Guys, I recently bought a pair of Nuforce NE7Ms. However, the sound quality i have recieved so far has been nothing short of muddy. I think that a burn-in could solve the problem. NE7M users: how long did you burn in your NE7Ms? Thanks! Edit: I am using the foamies.
Try the Nuforce NE-7Ms.
Thanks for the guide! Another sticky vote.

As u stated, there are lots of subjective measures (and valid for that user), but (back to paragraph#1), that's one area of criteria u must have an abundance of. The only thing "objective" that I can think of is the shape of the phones, some of which are designed to be worn over-the-ear. Sum ppl just don't like...

Truly dreadful. This is a partial hijack :P Yup, i've been to NYC, they are noisier. Did you burn your CX300 in? They're pretty nice after burn in.

Sennheiser CX300 fits your budget, has good noise isolation, is comfortable and has good sound quality and good bass. They're available from $20 from Amazon last i checked. Edit: I am also a frequent subway commuter. These isolate well when travelling on the train. Get them!
x2 for the Etymotics.
