I'm going to try to pick up some Red Roxx tonight, break them in, and then put up some first...

IIRC, the metro.fi 2 is more bassy and less balanced, so I suppose it depends on what you want. I think I prefer balance.

Personally, I've never heard the JBL or AT options, but I can tell you that the day after I got my pre-production Vibes, I gave away my ep-630. For me, the...

CX300s do isolate better but aren't as good SQ-wise as the 220s and Vibes. i ordered the new Denon canalphone - C350K. hope to have them tuesday. keep an eye out for a review. Cool. I just don't get it. If the tips are the same, how can isolation be different? Can someone post a...
Now I know at least one of the million Vibes fans can answer the question about the tips. Are they like the EX51s or not?
Okay, I am at wit's end here! I do not have an "audiophile" store nearby where I can "test drive" all of these canal earphones. I am in desperate need of commentary from current owners! What do I need? Canal earphones that cost $100 or less that isolate at least as well as my frame of reference and sound MUCH better than my frame of reference. My frame of reference is the SonyEricsson HPM-70 which are rebranded Sony EX51. I am COMFORTABLE with these tips: Tips...

The debate basically comes down to isolation. Which offers better isolation (thus allowing me to listen at lower volumes), the Vibes or the Super.fi 3s? Again, my isolation frame of reference is the Sony EX51/HPM-70.

With isloation in consideration, and for the price, I think that the super.fi 3's and the ALtec Lansing IM616's will be your best bet. IM616 here. I don't like the tips on the AL 616/716. Coming from the Sony EX51s, would the upgrade to the Super.fi 3s...
