Well i just bought the UE Super Fi 5vi (has a mic as well). I am BLOWN away by how good they sound, they haven't even burnt in yet.
I always use Leftfield's Storm 3000 track to test new heads to see how they perform and omg it was lovely and loud with plenty of bass an no distortion.
I will be using my sansaclip+ and fuze which are both rockboxed to enjoy theses heads.

Best part of all I picked up the Super Fi's for $60AUS

So this has been an interesting lesson for me. Previously i have only ever used etymotics er6's, now my eyes (or should i say ears) are wide open! I have to totally agree with dfkt's comments how etymotic are overpriced and overrated.

The various tips that come with the Superfi's had me worried that I wouldn't get a good seal (as I was always used to using the triple flange etymotic tips) but thats not the case at all, they have an even BETTER seal and comfort imho.

Superfi 5.... WINNING!
