I didn't care for either of Sol's you mentioned. They were decent, but for roughly the same price I was impressed with the Monster DNA in-ears. They have quite a bit more clarity in the low, mid, and high freq's. They sound like what the Beats probably should have sounded like. The bass isn't boomy, but they definitely have a clear bass forward sound. The mids and highs are scooped, or subdued, to bring the bass forward but maintain their clarity and sparkle in a non-annoying way.
Even more strange (maybe it's just me), but I picked up a set of the Monster Ncredible buds from Wally World out of curiosity and they have impressed me quite a bit. Very neutral across the spectrum, nice sparkle, and good clarity. They sound great with bass heavy music from Rap to Metal. Maybe even a step above the DNA's in clarity (definitely in mid range) for less money. However, for on the go I like the DNA's mic and controls better than the Ncredible's.
