Hi, l am looking for a ~100 dollar in ear buds to replace my Meelec 9P's for my iPhone. I listen to rock (both classic and new), rap, and sometimes pop. I don't really consider myself an audiophile, I just want a pair of buds that block out some noise, feel comfy, and sound pretty good.
 
I think I've narrowed it down to these 3 choices.
 
Thanks.

No. UE600 is a renamed SF5v2, don't bother.
 
The UE500vi is a better IEM than the UE600, I have heard both. If you have an iphone, the UE500vi is a very good choice.
 


 

 
People are often confused about this: Super fi 5 is NOT super fi 5 PRO. The UE500 is better than UE600 in terms of bass but not in terms of detail.

Well I have heard both ue600 and UE 500vi and I find the latter to be a more musical phone and it has the iPhone mic. Don't care what those reviews say. Just my view.



I agree with your view that the UE500 is more dynamic and having a mic is convenient. Awks, I intend to give the reviews to Wonderbra. No offense.
