After a few months, the right channel on my V-Moda Bass Freq has stopped working. (Much to my disappointment) So now I need a new pair of IEM's. I really liked the the bass and general audio quality of my V-Moda's, however I found them lacking in the noise isolation department. Any recommendations for under $100? I've heard good things about the Crossroads X3.

This thread was just started a few days ago: IEM for around $100?

Good luck in your search!

Except Amazon lists them at $99.95 unless you're buying them from another seller through Amazon ? ? ?

the sale on the Denon AH-C551 ended a few days ago. amazon was selling them through another company at the lower price, and they ran out. now amazon is selling them (not through the 3rd party anymore) at list price...

still worth the $99 IMO

EDIT: on the USA site, they now sell for $66! a new 3rd party seller is being used, hence the low price again

Yep, the 3rd party seller is selling the C551 for $66.15. I don't have any problem ordering through 3rd party seller with Amazon, i think they are quite reliable and i haven't heard/seen any of Denon IEMs copy/fake as they are not that mainstream to the market yet.
