I went on a trip to Canada before, and while I was over there I lost my Alessandro MS-1's (I have no clue how I lost something so big -.-;

, and now I have nothing to really listen any music with. I loved the sound that came out of the MS-1, but I'm feeling that I should get a pair of IEM's or something else instead (the MS-1's were troublesome to take around, especially with the long thick cables). The biggest reason why I want to switch over to something more portable is because I want to start dancing with the headphones on, and the MS-1's don't do so well with that I think (not that I really tried). My budget is around $100 right now, but if something else is really worth the extra money, I might consider bumping it to $150. Any suggestions?

hmm, not really looking for another pair of headphones that are that big right now. if i really can't find anything better, I'll end up going with the MS-1's again, but I would much rather get a pair of IEM's instead

is there any reason why the RE0's prices were cut down?? I'd really like to know the difference between the Klipsch Custom 2 and the RE0 so I can make the right choice between them =\

I can't comment on this because i haven't these two iem's, but what i can tell is that they cut the price of the RE0's because RE3's are coming out soon. There is a review of the RE3 prototypes by tony somewhere here...

hmm, i was pretty much convinced by the review so i just placed my order for the RE0's. Ordered some comply tips to go with them too ^^. How long do the RE0's usually take to come if I'm shipping to America?

When I ordered from Head-Direct I got my mail from them in like 2 days. I believe Fang is actually in NYC, not China. I think he is like in control of their North American or US Operations.

It's just on Promo. I can only say for the Klipsch Custom two, they are very dark, warm, and have a decent clear treble, and smooth mid that are detailed, with a powerful lows/bass presence. They are a dual balanced armature earphone, while the Re0 is a single dynamic. (that is jsut a fact, nothing to do with sound)
