Very interesting. Looking forward to the reviews, as I'm an iPhone owner, liked my 5pros' sound, but did not like their size. If these retain the sound signature, I think I'll sell my UM2's for them. I hardly ever listen to music critically on the go anymore.

According to earphonesolutions, the Blackberry Curve Series (83xx) works!
. To listen to music: ALL CELL PHONES
. To listen to music AND take calls: iPhone and some models of the Blackberry Curve series as pointed out by Phil.S
The sound of the 5PRO is better in my opinion but the fit/form of the Super.fi 4VI is much better in my opinion. At the end of the day I tend to favor comfort over sound.
Please be sure to check our new VISUAL Comparison Page for all high-end in-ear earphones by UE, Shure and Westone with exclusive shots of all the earphones side-by-side as well an in-ear shot of all models.
I have been using my E500s now for about 6 months with my Iphone for the train commute, it works well but I was looking for something all integrated and easy to put in my backpack.
Earphone solutions has these now for 20.00 off an already good price of 129.00 which brings them down to 109.00 and includes shipping. not bad, Ill compare this to the E500 and ER-4P after I receive them.
The new earphones have a built-in microphone (on the cable -- not shown on this picture) and a tiny button that allows the user to take calls.
The UE Superfi 4 vi is compatible with both the iPod and the iPhone so you can use them as a regular earphones for music only, either with an iPod or iPhone, and you may also use them to take calls without removing the earphones.
They have balanced armature drivers (single) and a new size for UE. They are very small and deliver very good details on the mids and highs. They are much smaller than the Ultimate Ears 3 STUDIO and 5 PRO.
Here's another question to peeps who have tried the super.fi 4vi. It IS a $100-$130 iem, but it's being compared here to some much more heady company. I have a set of the merto.fi plugs for the iPhone, and they sound better than anything I've heard in the $100-$150 range, and they can be picked up for around $70 online. Should be getting a set of the supers soon, and I can't wait to hear them...
[size=small]The Ety 6s best the new UE 4vis in every category, I would rather just take one IEM out and answer my iphone than spend over 100 bucks for an anemic sounding mid-centered iem just because it says UE on it. [/size] [size=small]Everything from the super.fi 5 pros on up I like a lot, but below that threshold their stuff is totally over priced and sounds terrible, IMO similar to my feeling about the products at V Moda...
