Well I am mostly leaning towards the mg7 or the monster turbines. Any particular reason to throw the eph100s into consideration over the other two? From what I have read they don't seem to be as bass heavy as the other two. Also I have some concerns about the tf10s, I had a pair of superfi 4s and really didn't like them very much, and they stopped working after a few months.

Owning both TF10 and EPH-100, I can tell you the Yamaha's have a little more mid bass which represents their fun character, though bass wise they're pretty even quantity wise imo. If I had to say one had more bass I would say EPH-100 do due to the slight mid bass hump, though bass means more than that, imaging (placement) with TF10 the bass completely separates from other frequency's taking it's own place downstairs.

if you're leaning towards TF10 it can run rings around EPH-100 all day long with better separation, resolution and micro detailing. It's really a no brainer imo. Take the UE's, they absolutely mince electronic music to pieces without caving or losing retrieval on busy tracks. Even over the Turbines. The clarity they possess is truly wonderful.

I actually mistyped in the first sentence. I am deciding between the mg7 and the turbines. Honestly from reading around it seems like they both end up being better for rap which I listen to more than electronic music. Also I have had a pair of ultimate ears IEMs before and was not happy with them, so I would rather avoid them.

Triple-Fis sound nothing like the Super-Fi 4s...  Their signatures are almost polar opposites :p  TF10 = Big bass, fun treble, lowered midrange.  SF4 = Sweet prominent midrange, controlled bass and hard highs.

That's fine, there are plenty of people that will.

It really has nothing to do with the sound actually. Its more of the fact that the SF4 were not comfortable at all, and they stopped working after a few months. I would rather not risk going with the same brand again when there are plenty of alternatives. That aside, it still seems like the tf10s don't get as many recommendations for rap as the mg7s and MTPGs do.

Gotcha...  A lot of people had build issues with the SF4, I never actually did :p  They were comfortable over the ear, I rarely ever wear the other way.  TF10 comfort hasn't really been shown as a strength from what I read.  So it may be wise to go a different direction.  TF10 does have the removable cable though.

if you'r considering the ex600 , take in count the ATH-CKM500, works great for the music you mentioned
