Come on.  It's good but not even best.  In fact, I think the MC5 has a better housing.  HJE900, CK10/100, 535 for sure.  Monster Pros cover you for life is something goes wrong.  So does Koss, ahem.

Monster IEMs seem to be some seriously sturdy units with very flexible and durable feeling cables.  The SE530 on the other hand....the cable self destructs in a short time from reaction with body oils.

Have you had either of the CK10 or CK100? I've had all the Monster top 3 offerings and both the CK10 and CK100 in my possession in the same time and the AT phones were clearly superior. There's a reason why they are suggested as the best build quality from many people.

My feelings are the CK10 don't sound perfect to me, but the comfort, isolation and build quality are the best I've experienced, so I will keep them.  I honestly feel like I can drive a car over them.
 
In fairness, I think the CK10 have the best sound quality in the world... for their size.  Compared to something like Sony EX1000 it is like moon vs earth.
