Default V-moda Vibe VS M-Audio IE10 VS other

Hi man, this my first post!

I want to buy a ear-in headphones (about 100, 120$). I'm a little bit confused.
What kind of ear-in do you suggest me?

* V-MOda Vibe
* M-audio IE10
*Ultimate Ears super.fi 3 Studio
*other.

I use the headphone at home. I listen heavy metal music and classical.
I see that m-audio ie10 has a this Frequency Response: 20Hz-13kHz . 13khz insn't too short?

Thank you and sorry for my english, I'm italian

Crossroads MylarOne XB's.

Click here for reviews and info.

I have the XB's, and the Vibes. I've compared the two and IMO, the XB's sound a bit more full when compared to the Vibes. That's not to say the Vibes are bad. Just a tad bit tinny and lacking in bass when compared.

The M-Audio IE10 is a rebranded Super.Fi 3, FYI. So they're both exactly the same.

For home use I certainly wouldn't suggest any IEM, but a full sized headphone. You can get better sound for less money with a large can. Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic, AKG, Ultrasone, Equation Audio, and several others make great phones in that price range.

However, for $130 you could buy the Future Sonics Atrio M5, which beats the stuffing out of any other IEM in that price range (and far above that). Here's our review: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archi...-m8-review.php

Headphones do sound better than IEMs in general. IEMs are great on-the-go, due to their small size and isolation - but there's better stuff to be found for home use.

Shit, I definately missed the "Home Use" part.

Yeah, like dfkt said, if they are strictly for home use, there are a few different alternatives from a varying degree of vendors that sound great.

You could check the Grado SR-80's, The Beyerdynamic DT231's, and a whole host of others from Sennhieser, AKG, etc. www.headphone.com has a nice feature that will give you suggestions based on your needs, and price range.
