    Hey!I am going to buy one of these babys.I heard by reading all sorts of reviews that e2c had pretty nice sound like sennheiser hd497 , but shure doesn't have that kind of good bass.I also read that e2c's are kinda flimsy.The sennheiser is little big and does not have a noise cancellation.So what would you pick?Any opinions?Need help PLEASE. :lease:

    THe Shures have plenty off bass too. They have to be fitted in the ear correctly to get a good bass response and evene when you do the bass is so tight and well controlled that it soemtimes gives the impression of being lean.

    Also the e2c can now have custom ear molds fitted :

    very tempted as the foam/plastic ends can be annoying :)
