Incipio F38 vs Monoprice 8323. I also have a question about the different F38 models...

Hiya, i'm currently using a pair of Phillips SHE 3850s but I'd really like to replace them. While I love them for their sound quality, the itchy feeling I get in my ears while wearing them drives me insane, not to mention the annoyance of having to maintain a good seal in order to get that delicious sound quality. I have tried multiple tips but they've all had similar results, so i'm just gonna go ahead and buy a portable headphone. I've been passively looking into these two pairs for the last couple of months but I can't come to a conclusion no matter how many threads I look at. ;_;

I'm pretty bad when it comes to naming genres, but i'll try. Some of the genres that i'm into are nu jazz, acid jazz, smooth jazz, bossa nova, EDM, jpop, chiptune, electronic stuff in general. When I listen to music with vocals its almost exclusively female vocalists. Here is my last.fm profile in case I am wrong: http://www.last.fm/user/OptimaShift They will be driven by a rockboxed Fuze V2. Sound quality is at the top of the priority list, followed by comfort then build quality, comfort is not a concern; i'm not really sure what other criteria fall into judging headphones. Pretty adamant about choosing these two models in specific, so please try not to recommend me any other headphones unless they are within the same price range & are closed.

Now I have a question regarding the F38s. When looking on Amazon I noticed there were different models of the F38s listed, what are the differences?
NX-100 F38 - http://www.amazon.com/Incipio-NX-100-Hi-Fi-Stereo-Headphones/dp/B005Q311QI/ref=pd_cp_e_0
NX-103 F38 - http://www.amazon.com/Incipio-NX-103-Hi-Fi-Stereo-Headphones/dp/B005Q311PE/ref=pd_cp_e_1
NX-104 F38 - http://www.amazon.com/Incipio-NX-104-Hi-Fi-Stereo-Headphones/dp/B005Q311Y0/ref=pd_cp_e_0

If you guys have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask.

I really like the Incipio F38's.  I did a little modding to get them where I wanted them, but worth it in my opinion.  Check out the Fischer FA-004 thread.  The different numbers are just color codes.

Leaning towards the Incipios, yes/no?
