Keep in mind I am by no means a "pro" sound reviewer here! I have been using the Audio-Technica ATH-CK7 canalphones for the past 18 months or so I would say. They cost me about $100. I decided to take advantage of Klipsch's "half off" sale and purchased the X5 IEMs for $125, and they were waiting on my desk this morning when I got to work.
