I would not compare the 716s at the $20 price tag, since they are impossible to find at that price now. It was just a lucky break. In fact, they are getting harder to find at all, since they are discontinued (and have been for awhile). Newegg lists them as "deactivated," but there is a third party seller on Amazon selling them for $71 shipped, so a little less less than the $80 SCL4 deal. But with the mod and a decent amp, they are an awesome IEM, up there with the ER4P (which I also owned, but sold). Sounds like the Shures are in need of a bass boost as well. It would be interesting to hear the two side by side (with the same amp, source). Hard to believe the Shures would outperform the 716s.
