“ I've been out of the loop for a while when it comes to budget IEMs. Back in the day, the low priced options were simply not very good. I remember paying $40 for the V-MODA Bass Freq as a workout IEM because I liked the massive impact, though it was obviously not an "all purpose" type IEM. I used them with my Creative Zen Micro Photo...” --project86
“ For a comparison of the NE-600X vs 700X vs 770X, see here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/623137/review-comparison-nuforce-iems-ne-600x-ne-700x-ne-770x quick summary: - bass sloped sound - tiny fit - great clarity/detail - fantastic sound for $35 and easily the top choice between the 600/700/770X ” --Armaegis

“ I initially bought these as a temporary replacement for my AKG K26Ps that crapped out on me after being left in a car for two weeks, and because I knew I'd want earbuds for music on the go. Given that I bought these for around $30, I was astounded at the audio quality these earbuds produced. The NE-6 has far more bass than any other earbud I've come across so far, and while there isn't a...” --OmegaSwitch
“i hate when they do that. i was using kdx100 & kdx200 for nearly 1 year and i did spent a stable $120 for the two. now i'm realizing actually the $15 ruk30 and $7 plug weren't much worse. kdx200 was a little different from ruk30 at least, but comparing plug to kdx100 just hurts... this was something i was expecting after ruk30 vs kdx200 comparison but god knows i wasn't expecting a totally...” --vaziyetu
“i spent the year 2014 with testing budget earphones and koss company never disappointed me. buying kdx100 was undoubtedly my best decision. it was kind of unplanned because my intention was to find something better than ruk30; and kdx200 as the pricier one, was looking like a better target. but i decided to give a chance to this one. because it was looking very different...” --vaziyetu

“I tested it with Dr.Chesky's Binaural album and Depeche Mode flacs. What I like most is of course bass response..it is more than enough, maybe a bit exaggerated, aggressive. Overall, I am really satisfied this excessive response in some genres.The only real problem it is prone to loudness noise of the record.. Maybe this is because the drivers are too sensitive. I am not that high end...” --ajlan
NuForce NE-650M High Efficiency Earphones with Excellent Bass, Layered Sound Stage and Microphone (Black)
“ Disclaimer: The following is a review from a sample provided by NuForce First I’d like to thank NuForce, for reaching out and allowing me the opportunity to review their new IEM, the NE-650M. The 650 is described by the manufacturer as “a uniquely enhanced version of the original NE-600 series earphone. Their high-efficiency design offers an even greater level of...” --shotgunshane
“Context: I primarily listen to music through my setup of FLAC -> HRT Music Streamer II -> Little Dot Mk3 -> Hifiman HE-400. I bought these primarily to use at the gym with an ancient RCA mp3 player that only has 512mb, because expensive gear and sweat don't mix IMO. These setups fill completely different roles, so I obviously don't expect them to compare, but I think it's important to...” --manbear
