Added Meelec A151 and Nuforce NE-700X
Good choice - glad you found the reviews handy
Edit: originally thought this was just FOTM effect coupled with good looks and good holiday discount and commented to that effect. But then I read the latest posts on one of those threads and, well... I'm left wondering as well. I haven't heard the teknines, but, well, I think the Xears bullets are amazingly clear earphones... for 30$, shipping included, when not on special. For the price the teknines go for, I'd expect something close to the RE-0 with big bass and better build/style.
Well FOTM is one thing but seemingly impossible comparisons to top-tier earphones is what got to me. The Teknines aren't bad per se but next to the similarly-bassy NE-700X they sound vague and veiled.
Monster Beats are aggressively bassy - hard-edged, very powerful, and lacking dynamic range. The Teknines are softer and more 'rumbly' in nature but IMO that's no excuse for sounding cloudy and imprecise.
