    I asked a few days ago about Shure headphones and ended up buying the SE210s. They sound good--much better than the stock Apple headphones--but the bass is not terribly impressive. I may end up forking over the cash for the higher end ones and was wondering if anyone owns any of the new Klipsch line to compare. I don't see too many actual reviews of them, more like advertisements with a "100% best headphones ever" sort of message. If anyone has any intel, especially if you can compare them to the 2 top headphones by Shure ... I'd very much appreciate it.

    Have you checked around http://www.head-fi.org/ ? I'm almost positive you'd find what you're looking for over there!

    I agree.

    I love my SE530's, the new Westones might give you the only other IEM competition. The Klipsch's fit and precision were not as great as the Shure's.

    I realize that should be the best place for reviews, but as I mentioned, I haven't seen anything unbiased and thought I'd have a better chance getting that here, especially considering I'd be plugging the headphones into my Iphone or other ipod instead of a $9000 receiver.

    In any case, feel free to throw some more feedback my way if anyone has any. Thanks.
