That's the deal on amazon...
I like my Denon C551's, but something that isolates THIS well for 50$, should I shoot for them? How well would they work for my Clip and D2, and through my Fiio?

For just $50, why not? You can always recover the money if they are not for you.

Your always going to get disagreements to what is considered the best depending on the tastes of the individual. However, I would say the majority here, based on the posts I've read, would say yes to your question. I don't think you could go wrong with a pair. Their clarity in this price range is one of the better ones based on the armature design. I also own a pair, it is one of my favorites in comfort (w/Shure olives) and general listening.

They were my favorite until they broke.

I'm getting some new IEMs soon. The Marshmallows have been good for a $5 set of headphones, but I need something more substantial.

the fact that they aren't durable does kinda throw me off...the cord does look very flimsy/thin...
I'd like to go for removable cables, but the cheapest ones you can get for the are the SF3's, which are lacking in isolation

YMMV, but in my experience, the 6is are durable enough that I've had no problems in many months of use.

For added comfort, I've been using the Klipsch gel eartips.

As for that $50 shipped price, that's a no-brainer. Enjoy!
