Hi, i'm new to these forums and i'm looking into getting some IEM. I currently have the cheap-o skull candy inkd buds/IEMs? I like them but they are starting to distort a bit and don't satisfy my music listening experience. I have done some research and I came over the Altec Lansing UHP336 IEM. I read that they are the exact same thing as the ultimate ears super.fi 3s which have good reviews. I found the UHP336's on amazon for $40 shipped and I want to know how you guys like these IEM and how much of a diference is it going to be from my skullcandys. I love a balance of mids, highs, and some bass. I typically listen to trance like ATB, Dj Tiesto, etc.. I also occasionally like to throw in some rock and alternative. Will these headphones satisfy my needs? Another question I had is when/if I get the phones and I want some more power for them, would pairing them with the fiio e3 amp make a considerable difference? My mp3 that I use pretty much all the time is my 1st gen black 30gig zune. I sometimes, but rarely use my 3rd gen ipod nano. Thanks all for the advice, and help!!
