What IEM's would you buy with a $75 gift card from Amazon?

I've owned the Denon C700's and the Atrio M5's. Loved the sound on both of them, but had to return them for a refund due to defects.

I'm using Marshmallows now. I love the isolation, but need a pair with better clarity to them. What would you buy on Amazon with a $75 gift card if you needed an upgrade?

Probably the Nuforce NE-8.

If I wanted a bit more bass and maybe mic/iPhone support, the NE-7M.

That or the Etymotic ER6i.

Time to champion the FOTM!

If a well respected reviewer like HeadphoneAddict is to be trusted, http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f103/r...n-c700-383617/ for $55 including ship off Amazon and then say a 3 pair pack of Comply T400 tips for Amazon.com: Comply T-400 Foam Tips - 3 Pair Pack: Electronics for $14.95 = looks very good.

the Nuforce NE-8 is also an option (better treble, less bass than NE-7M)

Better clarity and balance with the NE-8 but not as much bass as the NE7. You can't go wrong with NuForce.

NE-7M gets my vote.

And for the record, Er-6i's totally fail in my opinion due to anemic bass. All the detail in the world can't compensate for the complete lack of a bottom end.

True enough about the ER6i, which is why I have my HF5 (the "super" ER6i). Great high end with just enough low end that I can stand to turn off EQ most of the time (Although sometimes I give a couple dB boost in the right places).

Wow I guess I should get the Nuforce 7M unless somebody can convince me of something better. I was looking at the UE Metro Fi 150's but I guess the Nuforce's are the latest best value headphone.

They aren't IEM's but I'd get them over any true IEM's in your price range.

Methinks they will own any pair of 75.00 IEMS.

But that's just me so do carry on, sir.

I hope you will post your thoughts... I LOVE the 7ms after replacing my c751s with them!

Get the nuforce 8. That was my choice before deciding to get some shure scl4s for $16 more.
