They're definitely quality for the price.

How would the Ultimate Ears super.fi 3 factor into that spreadsheet?

I don't know, I don't have the SF3... but both SF5, the Pro and EB, aren't all that great either.

And mighty tempting for even myself... though if I get a pair of HFI-780's, which I will, I wont get IEM's that nice.

Looks like a recommendation for Future Sonics Artio M5. How do they compare to Westone UM2, which are not mentioned in this review?

Don't know how the Westone UM2 sound, but the Future Sonics Atrio M5 are amazing IEM's!

I don't have any Westones, that's why I can't comment on them or list them in the spreadsheet.

You're probably the person to answer it for me, then: Does the Atrio M5 + iAudio 7 do Shpongle justice?

(My second SQ criterion is speech; then it's wear comfort, isolation and absence of microphonics.)

The Atrios are excellent for bassy electronic music. They work with most other music as well, and they're forgiving, warm, mellow, laid-back, and fun sounding.

They work with any player or amp, they don't change their character much and are not really depending on specific sources.

Firstly, why don't you read the review about the Atrio's?
They're great with my Clip, I'm certain that they will be greater with your i7.

Great review. One issue not mentioned in the review that concerns me is how they perform as work-out phones. I take long walks on the treadmill, and need the diversion of a good movie or some music. So in addition to good SQ, they should isolate well and be able to tolerate the movements of walking (they'll be swinging between me and my laptop); they should also be sweat tolerant.

I am sure the Atrios would be great for workout-- as stated, they have fantastic isolation (Very deep setting) and very low microphonics. I don't imagine your ear-canal sweats very much, so no sweat should actually get into the driver.

$old! I am now sold on the Atrios, and went straight to amazon to buy a pair.

dkft: Maybe you could update your review of the Atrios to state that you run 15 miles with them without any problems.

Well, maybe I'm one of the lucky people, but I never had issues with any IEM coming loose in my ears. What works for me might not work for other people's ears, though.

Added the UE11 to the spreadsheet in the first post. There's nothing much to say, except "wow".

Oh, and also those popular orange DealExtreme earphones... these POSes are not even worth the $4 they cost.

But somehow they do get mainly favorable reviews, not only on DX, but even on Head-Fi. So I thought I try them, putting things in perspective. They are a step down from most stock earbuds, so they're not even worth spending a cent on.
