Default Ultimate ears naming and series sound quality : "Metrofi 220 or UE350?"

I kinda confused about the ultimate ears naming and series. I was looking for around $40 iems, and found both the Metrofi 220s and the ultimate ears 350. For the same price, which has the better sound quality? I heard that the metrofi series are ultimate ears lower quality series. is this true?

Can you send me a pic so I can make sure I'm looking at the right ones. The 220's look much more nicer. Where I live they sell it for $79. If you can get it for $40 those are a deal! I love ultimate ears, great sound quality. But one issue are the wiring. My past ear buds broke very easily But I loved the SQ. After a while when they burned in, they sounded better than my monster turbines which costed over $150.

+1. Seems like a very great price indeed. Have heard some generally positive stuff about these 220s.

Personally, I like shiny things so these IEMs are awesome And I love the case as well.

No idea on the OP naming convention/quality between the 2 specified.

Go for it and report back with feedback/review!

EDIT:
Hmmm, look here for a review of the 220s on that epic IEM thread over at that other site [Tier 3C, second entry]:
