to clarify, the wireless functions of the UE 9000 will work on Android phones, just that the wired functions will NOT "work properly" with Android.

Did I get that right??
Yes that's right mic should be fine on wired mode but not the volume control

Amps HD suit better for dance/trance music =)

IE800
- Tighter bass than SE215 and clear sound
- Wider soundstage than SE215 and BA200
- Easy wearing and comfortable
- Good for most genres of music

The TDK EB950 is pretty heavy on the bass and the UE400 is quite well balanced but less musical and lack soundstage. =)

Hi all,

- Your rig : SGS2
- What type of usage : music
- File format used in your source : MP3
- Genre of music you listen to : Mostly Pop and some Jazz
- Headphone / earphone type : IEM
- Other requirements : None
- Budget : Max $130

I've been reading "Multi IEM review - 214 IEMs reviewed (ljokerl @ Head-Fi)" and so far the Fischer audio sliver bullet, consonance and eternal, as well as the etymotic research MC5 has caught my eye. Anyone have opinions on these? Joker mentioned that the sliver bullet's cable is poorly built but the one on stereo.com.sg has a V.2 listed, is this a better build?

In addition, the three fisher audio earphones I mentioned, the prices are pretty close to each other, so whats the difference?

How about the UE900? Mids way better and also wider soundstage - very natural overall reproduction of sound.

Would you recommend the tdk ie800 over the tdk eb950 ?
Depends on your taste in the end but I would say the IE800 =)

You can try the Sennheiser CX300ii at $99 and also the JVC FX40

Dunu Trident should work well with pop songs too - especially Kpop.
