But one comment on the JH in-ear monitors: I bought them because I travel a lot, and I wanted something that delivered great audio and also suppresses all the noise in the various environments one encounters on business trips: noisy bars, airplanes, airports, hotel lobbies, etc. I'm wary of noise cancelling solutions because they diminish the nuances of hi-res audio.
For noise suppression on airplanes, the Lolas work a little *too* well: they seal so effectively that I have to reach up and unseat them from my ears during climbs and descents, to prevent the pressure from building. So on shorter flights when it's up then down, I've gone back to a set of Shure e4c's, which don't seal. But I'll still take the Lolas every time, on longer flights!
