I wound up ordering the UE700s on Sunday... they're due to arrive today (Wednesday).  I'll give them a try, and if they don't live up to expectations, I may jump on the Amazon deal on the Meelecs.  Logitech has a 30-day money back guarantee... so I have that to fall back on...

They arrived this this morning... I plugged them in to my computer at work for an initial listen, not that that was worth much.  I plugged them into my iPod tonight, and they do sound a little brighter than the SF3s.  I used them for my run on the treadmill, and it was very nice not to have to worry about a cable falling out or audio cutting out (both of which are very distracting during a run!).  They were very comfortable, and I didn't really have any problems with them slipping.  Not much in the way of microphonics, just hearing the running noise... but I suppose that's really an issue across the board.  I think I might have been getting a better seal than in the past.  I used them tonight with the silicone tips that were on to start with (medium, I suppose?).  I briefly put on the Comply foam tips... I will give them another shot in the next day or two.

 

Part of me wants to jump on the Meelec A151 just for comparison's sake... I'm pretty happy w/ the UE700s, but the deal has me curious.  Only problem is that I don't know if I could count on myself to return one of the pairs :)
