    My personal preference:
    ES3X > CK100 > IE8 > SF5 > CK10 > SF5pro > EX500 > FX500 > C751 > EX85 > CX400
     
  2. stang
    Westone UM3X > Sennheiser CX-300II > Creative EP-630 > Ultimate Ears Metro Fi.100
     
  3. timmyGCSE
    Westone UM3x --> Shure SE530 --> Ultimate Ears triple.fi 10 --> Etymotic HF5 --> Westone 3 --> JVC-Victor FX500 --> Ultimate Ears Super.fi 3 --> Westone UM1 --> Shure SE310 --> Head-Direct RE0 --> Futuresonics Atrio M5 --> Ultimate Ears 700 --> Meelectronics M6 --> Nuforce NE-7M --> Goldring GX200 --> JVC-FX66 --> Shure e2c --> Ultimate Ears super.fi 5EB --> Shure SE210

    entirely personal preference based mainly on the sound signature.

    If it was a comfort competition it would be a different story

    IE8 and ER 4P are my favorites.
    My ranking:
    IE8 >= ER-4P > triple fi 10 > ATH CK 10 > FX500 >= Denon C710 > W3 > denon C700 > SE530 > UM3X > UE700 > SE310 >= SE210 >> apple earbuds haha

    UM3X > IE8 = W3 > UM2 = SE530 > ER4S = ER4P > SF5Pro > UM1 > E4C >> E3C > CX300 >> EP630

    I'm in favor of mid-oriented IEMs.

    JH13 demo >> JH11 demo >> TF10pro > UM3X = IE8 = Ortofon e-Q7 > SE530 > westone 3 = SA6 > FX500 = atrios = image x10 = UM2 > CK100 = PFE > SHE9850 > EP630

    Interesting how many have owned or own either the EP630 or the CX300. I didn't list them, but also had both (gave away to friends who were using iBuds).

    Not compared side by side, but it most probably go like this.
    JH-13 Pro -> JH-7 Pro -> UM2 -> ER4(p) -> Bose In-Ear -> Apple In-Ear -> iBud -> The Plug

    Here's how I would approximately rank the IEMs and earphones that I owned so far:

    RE0 >= SE530 > ES3X > IE8 >= Triple.fi >= PK1 >= CM700 >= UM3X > W3 > Super.fi 3 >= SA6 > Super.fi 5 Pro > PK2 >= PK3 > Phonak PFE > CX300 > Marshmallow

    RE0 over ES3X. Very interesting.
     
  11. silentmeloud
    1. UE triple.fi & ety er4p - BEST
    2. Ety Er6i & IM616
    3. UE super.fi 5pro
    4. shure scl5
    5. shure scl3, philips 9850
    don't count low end dynamic iems like cx300, ck6w etc.

    Yeah, SE530 and RE0 over ES3X is interesting to say the least haha

    Well, I may be wrong of course, or maybe ES3X just needs better sources to shine, but when plugging both into what I have, I find RE0 more tonally balanced and equally, if not better detailed. RE0 may not reach as deep in the bass, but it has a more naturally sounding bass in my opinion, with more impact. ES3X sounds dry and a bit unnatural by comparison. Also, I find that ES3X really needs help to bring out dynamics in the music. With my Sony walkman, I had to turn the dynamic normalizer on to make them sound sufficiently dynamic for my tastes. RE0 sound more dynamic out of any source. As for SE530, I think it totally blows away ES3X in dynamics.

    BTW, that's why I returned my ES3X a few days ago. Luckily, got most of my money back (~92%). Gotta update my sig.

    sf3 seems rather high up the list there, beating the sf5 pro? was that intentional or a typo?

    Nope, not a typo. I actually thinks Super.fi 3 is the better IEM than the Super.fi 5 Pro. It sounds more natural and balanced.
