I've been listening to the Monster iSport Immersion earphones a lot since I received them .... (CUT) ... One final note is not to pay anywhere near full retail price for these.  Retail price is $180 for the set; I paid $130 at Amazon and that was the lowest price.  At $180, it's a total ripoff; at $130, it's still a ripoff, but I don't feel like giving Westone any more money for earphones that break quickly.

No love for Etymotic IEM's? I have the HF3 model (List around $180 but discounted to $129 or so on Amazon) and they are fantasic.

Can I run with them?  I sweat like a beast...literally like a waterfall off of my head.

"Every time I see a group of teenagers gathered around an iphone laughing at some youtube video, I walk up to them, slap the iphone out of their hand, get right up to them nose to nose, and scream at the top of my lungs:

TAKE A LOOK

IT'S IN A BOOK

READING FUCKING RAINBOW."

I have the sponge type tips on mine as they fit the best and block out the noise. Plus you can get custom molded tips for them if you want. Not sure about sweat but Monster developed their headphones to replace Beats (since their partnership broke up) so I would expect a overpriced POSSIBLY decent headphones, not something great.

If only Koss would be able to emulate the sound of the KSC-75's into a sports iem model.  I would be drooling majorly.

These Koss SportaPros that I have been wearing and in which I am exercising are basically KSC-75 drivers with a headband.  Not IEM, but they are working fine so far.  They don't move around on my head and I have been sweating like crazy with them on and they have not failed.

By the way, Shure has dealt with the cord problem on its IEMs.  I, too, have a couple pair of stiffened, shorted-out E4s.  But now the SE series has the drivers snap on to the end of the cord--not hard-wired any more, so when the cord wears out you can snap the drivers onto a replacement.
