From your overall reviews, sounds like you really enjoy an expansive soundstage. wondering if you've ever tried audio-technica's ad line. I have the ad700s and it seems very similar to the ck10. i'll bet it has and even larger soundstage though, since it's fullsize and open. I have heard the AD700 briefly and all I could think was "mids, mids, mids". Of course the CK10 can't beat that soundstage, but it does fairly well for an IEM. The AD700 didn't seem nearly as effortless in reproducing treble when I heard it, but that was only a brief impressioin.

I've been doing a bit of research trying to find something good up to my max budget of $175, and a lot of posts point me in the direction of Q-Jays. While I'm here, I was thinking about the Phonak PFE's but a friend of mine keeps telling me "spend a little more to get 2 armatures, you'll be dissapointed if you don't". Being a complete noob, what does this mean and does it have any truth to it? Also, any specific recommendations for somebody looking to get into IEM's, up to 175, who likes a lot of metal, prog rock, and just about anything with female vocalists (meaning a lot of high pitched music). The only Jays IEM I've owned are the J-Jays, though the less said about them the better (review coming soon ). I have not heard the Q-Jays and would be more interested in one of Jays' new IEMs (namely the quads ). As for dual vs single armatures, rawrster pretty much nailed it. More potential in multi-driver setups but that does not always equal better sound (just look at the Klipsch custom line). I really don't think you will be disappointed with the PFEs. They don't sound as natural as, say, the CK10, but they are darn good for what they cost and at what they do. You may also look at the Panasonic HJE900 (dynamic-driver), though I wouldn't call them vocal-centric earphones. They still perform very admirably and will take a lot more abuse than the PFEs.
