I have a pair of klipsch Image S4's but I frequently see reviews saying the Monster Turbines are better, then the gold and coppers being sequentually better yet. I have also seen reviews saying the Klipsch Image X 10's (what ever happened to the X 5's?) are better than the S4's and about tying the coppers, but most reviews say all these headphones lack the ultimate clarity of uber expesive multiple driver moddels. My question is would the $400 TripleFi 10 which can be had for about $200 be better than the Turbines or X 10's and closer to the sound of Shure SE535's or JH's audio and Ultimate Ears custom fit IEM's?
I'm looking for something to be portable and to be a cheaper alternative to a hifi set up without spending thousands.
Iv considdered UE TripleFi 10, Monster Turbines Pro Copper and Etymotic's hf series.
