    I used to own (and love) the TF10 - I sold it because of the fit and the microphonics.  I bought the GR07 and when I first got them, being accustomed to the TF10's signature, I hated them...but that hate only lasted for a couple of days.  The GR07 is now one of all time favorite headphones. 
     
    Try to find a GR07 in the sales forum.  If you don't like it just sell it and get your money back.

    I'm having a tough decision of whether re-shell or GR07 (and MKII or BE).

    There's a sale going on now at lendmeurears. Either the MkII or BE for $133.25

    Tick tock

    I purchased the BE because I prefer my low end to have a bit more rumble.

    You can have mkii have more bass by blocking the front vent, subbass is boosted.

    basically depends if I value the mids or the bass more since having one would muddle the other.

    A proper custom re-fit with custom (Westone ES-type) cables shouldn't really have any microphonics. If you like the sound of the TF10 I don't see anything wrong with re-shelling it. If you want a change then moving to VSonic would be a better option but to me customs have a bit less microphonics. 
     
    In regards to your more general first question, at this point there are a bunch of sub-$50 earphones that will hit you hard with diminishing returns when you try to upgrade from them. I am talking about the Sony MH1C, LG Quatbeat, a few of the VSonics, Philips SHE3580s, etc. 
     
    Then above the $150-200 range or so, a lot of it starts coming down to preference. This is why I have trouble suggesting upgrades to sets such as the VSonic GR07, Ety HF5, and HiFiMan RE-400 (among others) when asked.

    That's called the occlusion effect, it's distinct from microphonics.

    Wow Joker with the review of the Sm64... I feels like a new competitor for the V3 has come up to change my decision! :p But I believe the V3 still sounds a tad better?

    Quote:

    Pretty different sound, the V3 is more aggressive and engaging and has brighter treble and more of a mid-bass hump. If you want something more mid-centric the SM64 might actually be a better option.

    I would love to see the Fxz100/200 included in this review. But anyways: Great thread, helped me a lot with choosing IEM's!

    Someone who knows more than I do about these explained their purpose on page 736 of this thread. That was the first I'd heard of them except for the VSD7, which supposed to replace the GR07.

    The best thing is that the release date is almost a year from now. Then I have time to save up to buy all of them. Except for 9 maybe..
