I use my e10's for 6-8hrs constant use at work and never have any aches whatsover.
The only real advantage i think cans have over IEMs is that they slip on alot quicker, so if im doing something that's quick i'll use cans, otherwise IEMs win imo.
Soundwise i find the e10's superior to the aforementioned cans also.
thankyou for the replies..i had trouble deciding because there are very few superlux reviews available..plus the idea concerning full cans vs iems..mr. brucebanner said e10 has the better sound quality..so that made my mind up..again thank you..
