I almost bought the p18 but after comparing internal parts I opted for the Furman AC215. Works great and can be found around $110

Klipsch S3M for $14.

http://www.amazon.com/Klipsch-S3M-White-HP-In-ear-Headphone-White/dp/B00CZ5GD90/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1405137519&sr=8-3&keywords=s3m

Pretty damn good cheapo IEMs, especially for the price.

I have the Monster MP HTS 1600 filtering my Denon and Definitive Technology home theater system. It makes a noticeable improvement and on top of that it regulates the voltage so it's more consistent. And then for my desktop DAC I have a SL Z‐Cord 3fp from MIT cables. The price tag will shock you but it not only filters out noise for the DAC but also for anything else on that entire breaker. It's kind of a crazy cable. Honestly I didn't believe it before I used it.

It looks like a couple Amazon customers had some issues with fit, but mine fits snugly.  IOW, it hasn't fallen out in the three years I've had it!  I certainly won't vouch for any sonic improvement, and it's not at all flexible.  However, it gets the job done and looks pretty doing it.

About to own both... I hear no differences between the Pangea and Monoprice, but who knows, I'm a sucker for deals.

I agree with that, good power supply is important to good audio quality. You don't need to spend too much on it though, better to upgrade other parts of your chain.

Thanks for the rec - although I'm hoping to find one with a braided mesh outer sheath like the PS Audio Jewel. Anyone know of one like that in the realm of $20-25?

Came out to $20.98 for me. Thanks for the post! I needed some beater portable cans.

UE4000s are a steal at that price - biggest drawback is the moderately sloppy bass, but overall quite listenable.

No, I've seen used prices floating around 200, but haven't been able to find them under 299 new. Been a lot of coupon deals lately though, so who knows
