I think tstarn06 has heard/owned both, I'm not 100% sure though, but maybe he can insert his opinion
I also got the Turbines for free, and on balance, thought they were pretty good and gave them an overall positive review (not as rough a review as Oarnura). But I had no use for them and sold them to a happy buyer in DC. I also had the 7s, but one pair broke (the mic thing) and I always felt they were uncomfy and I could not get a good seal with standard tips, so I had to use T400s and that made them muddy. The ADDIEMs could use a tick or two more bass, but what they have is clean and clear, not bloated. I use them with the T4, bass boost on, and I really love the functionality with the Touch 2G. Sometimes with the Touch, I also use the bass booster EQ, which does distort on some tracks but not all.
Anyway, for $35 via ebay, to me, the ADDIEMs are a much better value than the either the Turbines or the 7s. Now, some folks using the E2C tip swear that is when the NuForce phones sound their best, but I didn't want to spend $15 on sleeves for a $50 phone. Oh, I use the Sony Hybrids with the ADDIEMs, which did cost $9, but I also use them with my PFEs and the IE7s (as long as I keep them. I might not). Oh, the Sony Hybrids also mesh well with the Turbines, if you are having any fit problems with them.
