I'm looking for some IEM's for my iphone 3g 16gb. I will be pairing them with a fiilo e5. I was giving the new apple in-ear headphones for christmas and I am disappointed with the bass, which does not exist. I'm looking for something that sounds as close to the HD555 as possible for under $160 if possible.

I just ordered the Z.Buds with their 30% off coupon. Should have them early next week and I can compare then.

I should have a pair of NE-7Ms and the new Apple In-Ears tomorrow. I will then be comparing the three of them against each other over the next week or so.

I'm very curious to see how the three differ from one another.

Also, use coupon code "SITEWIDE30" when checking out to get 30% off any and all ZAGG products if done by December 31, 2008.

Damn.... wait for reviews or buy when I can still get 30% off. I should check out their return policy...

I too would love a comparison of the NE-7Ms and the Z.Buds. Both seems fairly tasty. I am a bit concerned about one reviewer saying the NE-7Ms sounded a bit harsh. In the same vein, the NE-7M specifically discussed a 24 hour burn in...I wonder if they start off a bit harsh?

I never have fully understood what changes occur in headphones during burn in.

The review of the Z.Buds said the high end was a bit rolled off. For me, that might work better.

I don't get how that reviewer thinks the NE-7Ms are harsh. While they have a nice bass presence the mids are very good too.
