If you would rate soundstage in a 1-10 scale, with 10 being the K701s (my reference, since it's the best thing I've owned), I'd probably give...

About time I make a move on something. What ever it is will be better than my Sony EX51s!
I think my final decision comes down to... ATH-CK7s vs. Etymotic ER6i vs. UE Super.fi 3. (Am leaning towards the CK7s. Anyone who thinks the latter two are better, speak now, or forever hold your peace!)

Can anyone compare the CK7s to the UE Super.fi 3s?

I am getting the sense that "closed" IEMs that offer good isolation and "airy" IEMs that offer a wide sound stage are mutually exclusive! What does a good job of doing both for under $100?
