The Fitear To Go 334 should be up there as well. By many accounts it eclipses the K3003. I find it to be pretty much the last word in transparency and resolution I've heard to date. Also being universal, you have innate resale value if you should ever decide to sell for any reason.
Ah, estreeter beat me to it!
Hardly - you OWN them, and I'm still dreaming about even being able to audition a pair. I'd say that puts you way out in front. Just surprised that they werent mentioned earlier in this thread.
Interesting that the ER4 still has so many admirers - two things tell me they arent an earphone I would spend serious money on.
1, With the exception of female vocal/acoustic music, I didnt find my RE0's as 'gee whiz' wonderful as I was led to believe they would be, and many compare them favorably to the ER4
2. When I bought the Phillips SHE3590 and started reading Joe Bloggs' lengthy thread some 3 months back, I initially thought someone had to be pulling my leg. I have since been seduced to the point that I'd like to start a petition demanding that every pair of iBuds on the planet be replaced with a pair of these, but it has raised the bar on what I would consider a 'quantum leap' in an earphone. The top universals may well be 50 times 'better', but 130-150 times better ? I certainly wouldn't trade this bass for the RE0 bass and I prefer these cheapies overall sound for metal by a country mile,
Just my two cents worth, and I may be completely off-base with the RE0 / Philips comparisons.
