You can get the Atrio from the Future Sonics website for $110 with a coupon code. I don't know it off-hand, but it shouldn't be hard to find.
 
Other than that, I haven't heard the MG7. I do own the TF10 and think they're great. However, I didn't spend $170+ on them.
 
There are a few things that should help everyone with determining what IEM would be best for you:
Does it need to be [super] comfortable? What is your absolute maximum budget? Is electronic music the only music you'll be listening to, or do you have another favorite genre we need to consider?

Beware the crappy build quality of the MG7. Oh and they love to send dodgy, non-working replacement pairs when you claim warranty with them.
 
 
Good basshead headphones though.

No necessarily
 
 
What is your absolute maximum budget?
$200

Yes, only electronic. (DNB, Electropop, Electro House)
 
Also, I was watching the Monster Turbine Pro Gold and HIPPO VB, although this latter it seems that they need an amplifier to upgrade sound, I'm not sure.

Thanks for the help

I own both and think that the TF10 is a better all rounder, but you should probably buy the M5 if you need to feel that sub bass impact. While the TF10 can deliver a decent amount of rumble with foam tips, the Atrios move significantly more air. However, the TF10 does have a larger soundstage with better instrument separation and more treble emphasis.

Haha, I don't even have to give my impressions anymore. Took the words from my...fingers :wink:
 
The main drawback of the TF10 is the fact they aren't that comfortable for the majority of people. I don't seem to have a problem with them [anymore], but I can only suspect that is because of the tips I'm using (Comply tips, to be exact). If I were to use any other silicon tip I'm sure my ears would be in agony after a few hours of use. That's why I originally sold them.
 
If you have large ears, or, more specifically, large ear canals, I would go for the TF10.

You refer to these Comply?

In the bundle are not included?, Must be purchased separately?

Thank you.

I use the Monster foam supertips on my TF10 as they last longer than Complys. They have some sort of silicone coating that really helps with the wear and tear. However, they are wider and shorter than Complys or Shure olives.

I have medium sized ears/ear canals, and I can use them for hours on end if need be.

TF10 comes with 2 pairs of Comply foams. You will need more when they wear out.
If that Amazon link is for the TX-100, that's way small for the TF10, but I'm sure you knew that.

I've been reading a bit about the TF10, and mention of a  flip mod and something about "the cable", what can you tell me about it?, Considering that I am noob in these matters to do something complex headphones.

Thank you.

The flip mod is basically just about taking the right ear-piece and terminating it with the left cord, and vice-versa. It's to increase comfort.
 
Yeah, my ears are pretty small haha.

The stock cable is a POS and should probably be replaced with something aftermarket as soon as possible. Mine broke every 3-4 months and had a tendency to tangle all the time. While Logitech will replace them for you under warranty, they need you to send the whole thing back. I ordered a Null Audio Lune and found the price tag worthwhile for the ergonomic improvement alone.
 
The flip mod is were you swap the left and right earpieces on the TF10. Normally they stick out of your ears a fair bit, but this mod allows the iems to more naturally follow the curve of your ears. It helps people who have difficulty getting a proper seal. See Google image link here: https://encrypted-tbn2.google.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQLr5eQTv5T82oBPcwN9bzuCNc_aciWGhOiUYsiXaVUsV4ffqVMwA
 
The TF10 looks like this when worn normally: http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=en&sa=N&biw=1745&bih=999&tbm=isch&tbnid=eKv7owKmxVdF-M:&imgrefurl=http://www.head-fi.org/t/601372/do-triplefis-really-look-like-tampons-in-your-ear/15&docid=uaDuua0pZtmd6M&imgurl=http://cdn.head-fi.org/8/80/80e0e461_triplefi10vi-in-ear.jpeg&w=267&h=298&ei=PPa6T4bDM6q16gHPro38Cg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=1285&vpy=571&dur=3833&hovh=237&hovw=212&tx=130&ty=145&sig=114890914367489958840&page=1&tbnh=157&tbnw=141&start=0&ndsp=40&ved=1t:429,r:30,s:0,i:140
