    :eek:

    If you're going to be spending more realistic amounts of money, any of the Shure range from the e2c up should do. I've heard lots of good things about the e2c, and if you feel like spending more you could go for the e3c, e4c or e5c.

    Speaking personally the e3c's are great - they've lasted me a year and a bit with no fuss. The e2cs only lasted 6 months :(

    There are plenty of options (Shure E4, Westone UM2 etc.) But sounds like the OP already made his choice, and it is kind of hard to argue with £700 IEMs ;)

    There are alternatives though. The Sensaphonic 2X-S and the Westone ES-3 are both custom IEMs competiting in the same market, and pretty fat investments.

    I've been impressed with the new Sennheiser CX300s, though at only 40 quid im not sure how well they would compare with the more expensive earphones.
