Oh I hear ya, sometimes the little increase in sound isn't worth the money. You have to let your ears be the true judge. Right now I'm using the new Vsonic Gr 99, and to me it is killer and sounds much better the most Iems 4 times it's price..$25 well spent. Even tho the higher end sets are more refined ect, these have the sig I enjoy.
I learned the hard way when I first started this hobby. I spent maybe $2,000 on full size cans, which are long gone...You know what I kept? Denon AHD 1000, they sound better then anything else to me...Senn 650(mistake), Sony, ATs, I've bought and tried several but the Denons now are my main set, and have no urge to upgrade to anything else.
I just added a D2000 cable to them and there you go....http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/594/dscf0055v.jpg/
