My Shure SCL3's died after 15 months, and I was waiting for a warranty repair, so needed a cheaper replacement, quickly. I have read dozens of reviews on each of dozens of in-ear headphones. I tried the Bose ones in their store, but didn't like the price. Trusted what people had written here about the NE-6's, and they were right - they do sound very good. Much more bass than the SCL3's. Not as much however as the surreptitiously nauseating bass that the CX300's have. Quantity of bass varies greatly with depth of insertion into ear canal. Bass is nice and clean, and goes quite low. The medium silicone tips (the factory-fitted default) did it for me. I found that the double-flanged tips gave more sound isolation, but less bass. I can't actually insert these things into my ears any further because the right-angled strain relief rubber on the wires touches my ear.

I can listen to anything from my music collection with the EQ set to flat and bass boost on zero (Archos A605 WiFi). With the Shures or Sennheiser CX300's, I was always fiddling about, trying to get the optimal sound - which I never got. The treble sounds are very much there, but pleasing and not clashy like they are on cheaper headphones (e.g. SkullCandy Ink'd). Treble is slightly more subdued than the CX300's, which is a good thing. I really don't like those headphones. I wish I still had the Shure's to compare with, but I think the Shure's sounded a tiny bit more "pure" - probably because they have very slim bass response and rolled-off treble. The NE-6 are ridiculously more efficient than the open-back Sennheiser HD490's that I have had for years (and are the best sounding cans I have). Not really fair to compare in-ears and open-backs but the NE-6's are a usable alternative for high fidelity listening.

The NuForce NE-6 earphones are very good sounding earphones and an exceptional value.

I am a long time audiophile (some would say audiophool) and my main audio system is definitely reference quality helping me appreciate what recorded music can and should sound like. I generally share my biases at the start of my reviews so there is no ambiguity about where I am coming form. And I have many points of view regarding headphones/earphones. Although head and earphones can match and often surpass the accuracy and resolution of high end speakers they do not get the sound stage right. The music always appears to be coming from the middle of your head versus from a natural space in front of you. So spending a lot of coin to achieve the last degree of accuracy and tonal quality but never achieving even a remotely lifelike soundstage seems like a fool's errand to me (unless you are using the earphones as performing musician - a whole different kettle of fish). There are headphone amps that add circuitry to correct this but then you are mucking up the sound quality with another layer of processing. I prefer the sound and comfort of over the earphones to in-ear phones but for anything active or on-the-go, forget that. Even just walking around who wants to use big ol' "cans". So unless your are listening at home I opt for in-ear. Finally, my point of view is that nearly all earphone use today is with iPods/MP3 players. While iPods are capable of excellent sound quality, practically that is rarely achieved. The music files need to be lossless and many of the devices lack the output juice to drive phones to their dynamic potential. Because of all this my feeling is that phones for an iPod should not cost a lot.

Well these baby's cost less than ANY Apple iPod.

For the past month I've been soul searching for new in-ears. I've read hundreds of reviews of hundreds of products on CNET, Head-fi, and many others. I came across NuForce and was impressed by their website and decided to just give it a try.

I've had the NE-6 for about a week now. These are identical to the NE-7 minus the mic, which is no big loss for me since I don't listen to music on my cell, and I also like the deep blue metal rather than the copper color on the NE-7.

Out of the box, these sound amazing. After about 30-40 hours of burn in time, they sound incredible. The bass is very rich and powerful and provides the perfect amount for hip hop and electronica music, without overshadowing the other ranges. Perfect for working out to. The mid and high ranges are very detailed. With a lot of songs, it sounds like the music is actually playing from regular speakers in your room, rather than the in-ear's. I've been startled a few times because voices sound like they are coming from someone next to you rather than the song. Everything is balanced very well, no one range blares over the others like in a lot of in-ears.

I'm not some die-hard audiophile so I can't really get too detailed about comparisons and specifics, but these things just rock. I listen to a lot of hip hop, rock, classic rock, electronica, and sometimes even classical. The NE-6 are incredible for any genre I'm listening to. This is the most expensive pair of in-ears I've ever purchased, but as people have said, they sound like they should be in the $150 range. Since I can't compare to other expensive in-ears, I'll say this: After listening to these, I have no clue why some regular consumer like myself would pay for anything more. These just sound phenomenal plain and simple.
