    i have both. the vmodas are more fun to listen and and they are better looking too. with both you have to burn them in at least 72 hours to judge them.

    Do you have a VIBE Duo? i have heard bad reviews on them:(.

    I'm staying with vmoda's cuz they're plain sexy. they also look like good sounding headphones.

    But shure seems to be more professional.

    You like them better. but they are right? they both look the same, but the duo's are for sure better right? so im guessing that the VIBE is out for me. its just the VIBE DuO and the Shure.

    I still find it hard to believe apple is selling the vibe and the vibe duo at the same price lol.

    My friend has the Shures and he loves them to death. I would choose the Shures if I were you.

    Hey, you're on an Apple forum, remember? Don't you know you're supposed to go for the eye candy regardless of performance? Go for the Vibe dude - Shures are like so Dell*, ugly :p

    *Uglier, and also of course works better ;)

    I know!!! the VIBE is like dead drop impossibly sexy!!!! but i just saw the shure demo, and seems like the shure may be the better the buy. right now i cant you traditional apple earphones after using the headphones that came with my se w580i!!! they are kick ass in ears, im surprised they included such a nice headphone with a cell phone! the bass, sound isolation, its perfect!!!

    so now, im not either side again, maybe looking at pictures from flickr of both will help:p:p.

    Funny. I just went through looking for the perfect ear-phones for myself and the V-Moba and the Shure were what I was looking at. In the end I picked the Shure SE110 in black, and man I LOVE them. The sound quality and over all design is great.

    The Shure's jack is also able to fit in the iPhone's jack as it is tapered near the end. The cable is also thicker and I think it will last longer as well.

    Over all a great buy, would highly recommend them.:)

    I was lookign to buy the V-moda vibe duo for my iPhone on an airport store, and they didn't have them, what they told me is that is that V-moda has a customer satisfaction policy that if you don't like them you can return them within 30 days, anyone who can confirm this?
    If this is true maybe you can give them a try and have the alternative to return them.

    I end buying Altec Lansing for iPhone noise isolating earphones because were the only ones available under $100, actually they cost me $80.

    I like them, but I still wonder if the vibe duo are better.

    In a bose retail store I tried the bose in ear and they sound great and are very comfortable in the ear, but don't have the mic control button.

    My problem to decide over Senheisser or Shure is that I'm always tempted to go with the higher price models...

    v-moda vibe is much better than shure in real situation. you can wear it all day. you don't feel it. shure? even it is designed for mobility. but it is still dedicated for studio use. I can't really wear shure product on the street. it's dangerous.

    I've heard both IEM's and found the VIBE too bassy and the SE110 seriously lacking in bass if you don't use the right eartip.

    That's why I ended up with the Ultimate Ears super.fi 3 Studio (I'm using the foam eartips)--it's got a nice, balanced sound. :) If you're willing to spend around US$135-US$140 I'd highly recommend the Ultimate Ears super.fi 5 Pro, an IEM well-liked by many people.
