Default What a difference good head phones make

OK, relatively good. Up until this weekend, I was using 3 year old Creative EP-630s, and I thought wow, compared to the stock earbuds that came with my Clip+, the 630s were amazing.

After a month or two reading ABI, I was overwhelmed by the urge to upgrade. I don't consider myself a serious audiophile; and I really questioned how good earbuds\canal phones could be, so I didn't want to spend more for headphones than I spent on my player.

After some research, mostly reading reviews, I settled on NuForce NE-6. I have seen the light, or heard it anyway. These are at least as big a step up from the EP-630 as the Creatives were from the OEM.

Now I'm thinking "should I have paid out for the Sennheiser IE7?" No complaints, though; the bass is clear and crisp without being overwhelming, the highs and midrange are crystal clear and sound isolation seems to be pretty good. I've evolved.
