Quite true that headphones are better in sound than IEMs dollar for dollar, though the gap is quickly closing
 
I do not have experience with the Superlux, but have listened to the E10 before and I believe it is great value
 
anyway besides just sound, you should consider where you are going to use it and the portability factor if you wan to use it...
 
If you are using in on public transport I would opt for the E10, otherwise the other two choices should be fine

If you went with the HD330/HD660, I really recommend you buy better ear pads ($15-$36) for them, really helps with the comfort.
Beyer Velour ear pads ($36) for the DT770/DT880/DT990 will fit the HD330/HD660.
Velvet (Made in China) ones are $15 on eBay.

Takstar Hi2050 (Technical Pro HPT990) might be a better choice.
