Have you ever tried on a pair of IEMs before? Some people may find them a tad too uncomfortable for their tastes. But if you want to get a great pair of IEMs, then the Shure E500/SE530 can't be beat at that price.
You should also consider custom made livewires only $249 plus the cost of getting impressions made. They are a great sounding iem and because they are made to fit your ears they are really comfortable also.
If you are sure that IEM's are right for you, I suggest the Shure e500/530 (same IEM) - especially if you like bass. If you are not sure, you may also want to spend your $300 on a decent portable amp and some Yuin PK1 earbuds. I have both and prefer the PK1's unless I need the sound isolation.

Nah. My understanding was that customer ordered Livewires 1st July, sent his impressions mid July with payment/ instructions to ship prority/ insured. He heard nothing till mid August when Livewires informed him they shipped beginning August, normal mail no insurance. They did not give him any notice of shipping, according to him.
They did not reply to his queries why instructions were not followed, as his phones did not arrive.
This escalated until he finally got an extremely rude and insulting email from John Diles of Livewires, asking him to "go away" and promising a refund. This was dated 5th september.
You can read the sordid details here, including that example of what a customer service letter should never sound like:
Maybe it's a different that Xenu and I are thinking of, but that guy was being a pure d**k to John at LiveWires after John tried to sort things out with him. It was most likely a mail problem, and threatening is never the key, not to mention how immature of a gesture that is.

You're probably right, it's most likely a different case. The thing that gets me about this case is the letter that was sent by John Diles to this customer. "Go away" and "poorly written ramblings" when it's fairly obvious the customer's first language is not English. And still no refund after more than a month?
