Ultimate Ears 600 vs Etymotic ER-6i or Etymotic mc3 for a non audiophile iPhone user

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi, l am looking for a ~100 dollar in ear buds to replace my Meelec 9P's for my iPhone. I listen to rock (both classic and new), rap, and sometimes pop. I don't really consider myself an audiophile, I just want a pair of buds that block out some noise, feel comfy, and sound pretty good.

 

I think I've narrowed it down to these 3 choices.

 

Thanks.

Or if not, maybe just with in terms of the two brands: UE vs ety?

Are the UE 600 better than the super fi pro 5?

I have the UE600 and it's pretty decent! Heard things I've never heard before and I started liking songs I never liked.

The UE500vi is a better IEM than the UE600, I have heard both. If you have an iphone, the UE500vi is a very good choice.
 



 

 

People are often confused about this: Super fi 5 is NOT super fi 5 PRO. The UE500 is better than UE600 in terms of bass but not in terms of detail.

I agree with your view that the UE500 is more dynamic and having a mic is convenient. Awks, I intend to give the reviews to Wonderbra. No offense.

The Spider Realvoice had only positive reviews so far. I'm very keen on getting one!
