What would be the best earphone for me if I prefer comfort over everything and enjoy fun sound over more clear but boring SQ.

UM2 is very comfy, but I dont think the SQ appeals to me.

Klipsch Image looks like the SQ I am looking for, but with a lot of problems with the cable that scares me I dont wanna jump on it right away.

Anything else I am missing here?

Do you mean this one:

Ultimate Ears triple.fi 10 Pro Metallic Blue Earphones

Ive heard they are quite uncomfy to wear, is this true? The soundstage looks just what Im looking for though!!

Thats my point!

But I got a good deal for the Klipsch Image X10.... $285 including shipping worth $30 and that at an authorized dealer with warranty and such!

Which is 195 Euro, a nice price for such earphones and the most comfortable earphones in the world I have read somewhere!

Deal or no deal? :p

I ordered them last tuesday. Landed in Denmark friday, been in customs ever since according to USPS Track and Trace. Make sure the order receipt they put on the box is visible and includes the discount or youll be paying too much sales tax / tariff or whatever Dutch customs will charge you.

God I hate international trade barriers!

Which shipment method did u choice?

I paid $5 more for Express Mail, which is a lot faster than Priority Mail or whatever it's called.

Anyway, I emailed them about what price they put on it, and they didnt reply me.

I was also concered about the fact that they would trow on a $350 pricetag instead of the $285 I really paid for.

Anyway, the tax here is 19%, so it doesnt really make a big difference, 350 - 285 is 65 and 19% of $65 is $12.35 which is 8.50 Euro...

But I have already wrote them an email that if they wrote down $350 on the package that I want a refund for that $12.35.

But if they refuse then it wont be the end of the world, although it's their mistake so they should pay imo, even if the difference is only $12.35!

If you can still follow me haha!

Mine arrived in DK on friday the 19th, spent monday till thursday in customs. Friday the 26th they were sent off to my local mail office where they arrived saturday the 27th. They wont deliver to my adress since I have to pay sales tax, so I have to show up at the mail office.
So customs basically cost me 7 days of delay + alot of money -.-

USA please join EU !

I hope Dutch customs will be nicer on you. How much extra % will they charge you? DK takes $30 in tolling fee, then sales tax is 25%, ill be paying ($280+$25(shipping)+$30)*1,25=$418
