just got these from microcenter for $199
so far, i'm liking them more than my er4p's (which i've kind of gotten bored with) straight out of the ipod touch. i'm not sure how anyone can say these don't have enough bass... to me they're really punchy and fun sounding. super great with electronic music (bjork, plastikman, autechre). but with some rock music (flaming lips, lightning bolt, can) things can get a little... muddy. gonna try them with the hornet later, which should clean some of that up. my only real complaint is that it's quite difficult for me to get a good seal with any tips but the tri-flanges. but i'll get used to them in a few days.
oh, also, i had to use my teeth to get the tips that came installed on them off. i felt weird afterwards.
