I realize this might take a long time waiting for the winners to show up one after the other. Therefore I'm going to pick all of them now, so that everybody knows whether she/he's been lucky. Remember though, you will still have to wait in line until the ones before you have chosen their IEMs.
 
Ok, here we go:
 
Winner #2:

I just won a pair of MEElectronics M6. This is exactly what I love about Head-Fi, people are willing to teach newbies, to give back to the community once they've reached the top of the food chain, and to promote this giving nature.
 
From my research, this is what I've found:
 
JVC FX500
Market Price: $130 (seyo-shop)
Summary: Good, deep bass. Clear but slightly recessed mids/vocals. Bright but detailed highs. Sexy wood!
Reviews: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/302873/victor-hp-fx500-review-world-s-first-wood-canalphones
 
Cyclone PR2
Market Price: $76 (gyratech)
Summary: Very few reviews! Powerful bass, neutral mids, grainy highs
Reviews: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/441431/impressions-of-the-cyclone-pr2-versus-the-fx500-ie8-m5-and-pl50
 
Cyclone PR1 Pro
Market price: $60 (gyratech)
Summary: Balanced, neutral, laid-back. Surprising that people describe them so differently from the PR2.
Reviews: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/452312/review-the-cyclone-pr1-pro-another-50-bang-buck-heavyweight
 
Atrio M5
Market Price: $200 (amazon)
Summary: Fit seems to be paramount, unless you want a thin, tinny sound. Once fitted properly, they deliver low, punchy bass and a warm sound signature. Up there with the PR2 for bassheads.
Reviews: Amazon site, http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/232312/futuresonics-atrio-m5, http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/268768/clash-of-the-titans-atrio-m5-vs-q-jays-vs-denon-c700-vs-shure-se310,
 
ATH-CK100
Market Price: $480 (accessoryjack.com), unless you're in Japan, in which case they can be found cheaper
Summary: Detailed extended highs, forward warm mids, tight but weaker bass
Reviews: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/409871/audio-technica-ath-ck100-impression, http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/483569/audio-technica-ck100-review
 
ATH-CKM70
Market price: $110 (accessoryjack.com)
Summary: Not many reviews. Balanced, clear and detailed.
Reviews: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/337745/ath-ckm50s-first-impressions, http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/384095/audio-technica-ath-ckm50-vs-sennheiser-cx500
 
If I won, I'd probably pick them in this order: CK100, CKM70, PR1 Pro, M5, FX500, PR2.
Being an MS1 owner (and loving them!), I'd want something that is forward and isn't too bassy.

Dear James,
 
  Unlike some others, i am not picky. I do have my preferences though, it's only natural.
 
 I wouldn't say no to the PR2 for example, it offers excellent bass and soundstage for its price, but i would prefer the more balanced , softer PR1.
 
  Now, as for the CK100, well i like my vocals and i like my midrange and my smooth presentation. You can't say no to such an expensive iem anyway :p.
 
  As for the Atrios, i would say you can keep them but i am not stingy like that. Besides, you know what they say about bass, the more the merrier, who cares about detail anyway. 
 
 Jokes aside, i have rarely seen such generosity to strangers before in my life. You sir are commendable!

This is great! Thanks for doing this.
I have heard good things about the atrios- I almost bought them when I was looking for iem's. They seem like a good choice for a basshead like me

The Atrio M5 seems like a nice performer. At least DFKT likes it in his abi review. 
 
I had to look for the other IEMs listed, minus the ATH CK100 as I knew it was their first triple driver IEM design. 
 
That is a very nice offering of you james444. Congrats on your 6th year!
