What are, in your opinion, the most overrated/overpriced IEM's ? I think that IE8 are probably overrated/overpriced

Just to clarify, when you asked this question, which basis did you have in mind for comparison? Is it based on sound quality alone or the IEMs as whole packages (build quality, isolation, usability, etc...)?

Klipsh S4 price per performance. I was suckered into getting these after reading all the reviews.

I thought the Klipsch S4 was great in price/performance for me, since I got mine for $30. biggrin.gif

I got a pair of beats by dre tours from monster free after the fourth time my turbines died in 2 months.  I still feel like I got ripped off.

My old cheap college-days stereo speakers (3-way 10' woofers) still sound OK in my 12x14 computer room (displaying decent bass). However, I once moved them to the larger open great-room (tall vaulted ceilings/hardwood floors) and they became “over-rated”.

 

I have the Shure SE535 which (IMO) should be vacuum-sealed (or nearly). I also have the Sennheiser IE8 which (IMO) comes with useless tips (for my ears) resulting in boomy mono-toned bass and weak and distant mids. I don't think either are “over-rated” once you put a little work in with fit, source, and equalization.

 

Of course, my opinion could be "over-rated" (but only by me).
