So I've lurked this site for quite a while - I'd say for at least a year. Ever since receiving my UE Triple-Fi 10s, I've been on the hunt for an even better pair. However, I find myself in the same problem every time I look around - another option to consider, another review contradicting the one before, or just another term I gotta figure out. So I decided to plea my case (yes, another one of those threads). I consider myself pretty bass-happy, but I do like sound quality on all levels. I've done some research and with the company I work for, I get a pretty good discount for the following and would really like your recommendations on them as well - Monster Turbine - Gold, Sennheiser IE8, Shure 535, Klipsch Image 10, Etymotic HF5, I plan on using them with my MacBook Pro/iPhone/iTouch and currently have a NuForce Icon DAC-2 as well that I use quite frequently. I've got about 400 tops to spend, so if you have any other thoughts or suggestions (maybe the NuForce Icon HDP instead of headphones), I'm all ears. I'm still new to the whole "audiophile" family, however I'd like to get the best from what I have. I do thank you for taking the time to help me out, really.
