We'll take all you got at $100

aww poop... I totally missed the 100.00 part

I honestly don't have a good answer for an IEM at 100 that sounds like a PX100.

The closest to that price range I had were the Shure E2c... which I was NOT a fan of. The Etymotic ER-4 is a goo piece of gear, but NOT like a PX100 at all and costs in the mid 100's range.

You want to tell me that none of the iem's such as NuForce NE-7M, Altec Lansing UHP336, Crossroads quattro and soo can't compare to the px100?
What about the phonak pfe's? how they do against the px100?

I had the Nuforce NE-7M's, just returned them. I also have the px100's.

The nuforce's were more detailed, but they weren't that much of an upgrade from px100 sq-wise. The mic is a really useful feature though.

I don't need a mic.
Soo which iem's i can find that is better than the px100?

I'd recommend saving up a bit more, PX100s go for what, around $50? You're not going to see marketable improvements for $100, especially since at least in my experience IEMs are generally more expensive for an equivalent quality of sound and the PX100s are already well regarded and good value.

It's not that i don't love my px100, it's just that i need some isolation and want something more portable..
The Phoank audeo pfe's won't be an improvement from the px's?

In term of sound quality the PFE are the best for the price (according to reviews).

From what I've seen, minimum price is 135$.

I don't consider them as the best value, because:

1) look at the long thread of defects :
2) people say you must use an amp to get the best of them.

If you can stretch your budget "a bit", get a Sennheiser ie7. At least that's what you should get if you are interested by "build quality" especially. I didn't test them yet, waiting end of month.

Iv'e got an e5 so the amp won't be a problem.
The question is if they are really better then the px100..
