    For durability I guess Logitech UE100 is your best bet as it has 2 years warranty.

    Monoprice 8320 is a great iem at this price range. Import kore anaile about 1100tk porbe.

    Pros-
    -amazingly clear sound
    -sound is quite balanced, the bass(as u mentioned it) is not thumping, but it's good.
    -Beats other iems at the double it's price range in sound quality.

    Cons-
    -no accessories come with it.
    -the stock tips are big & prolly you have to use a tip from another earphone.
    -the cable gets tangled too easily.

    ^ +1

    Even the Monoprice 8320 sounds better than my Sennheiser HD201 when both are connected to a Fiio E7 USB DAC Amp, especially in low and high frequency region.

    No warranty as you will have to import it. Local shops do not stock it.

    If you can, get the monoprice as it will beat the UE100 in sound quality. But if you look for warranty then UE100 is ok as it sounds nice too.

    - - - Updated - - -

    There is a 279 IEM comparison thread at headfi which reviews both Monoprice & UE100. Here's what that says-


    (3C21) Monoprice 8320 (MEP-933)


    Reviewed Feb 2012

    Details: 14.2mm dynamic-driver IEM from cable vendor Monoprice
    Current Price: $7 from monoprice.com (MSRP: $7.11)
    Specs: Driver: Dynamic | Imp: 32Ω | Sens: 96 dB | Freq: 20-20k Hz | Cable: 4' I-plug
    Nozzle Size: 5mm | Preferred tips: Sony Hybrids, Meelec long single-flanges, Comply T400
    Wear Style: Straight down or over-the-ear

    Accessories (0/5) - Single-flange silicone tips (1 size)
    Build Quality (2.5/5) – Large housings containing the sizeable drivers are plastic but feel well put-together. Strain reliefs are present all around but the nylon-sheathed cord is fragile, tangle-prone, and lacks a cinch
    Isolation (2/5) – Large, vented housings and short nozzles greatly limit isolation
    Microphonics (3/5) – Annoying when worn cable-down, not much of an issue with over-the-ear wear
    Comfort (2.5/5) – The plastic housings are lightweight but large, thick, and complete with sharp ridges. They seem to be designed for over-the-ear wear but don’t fit those with small/medium-sized ears well. With the cable exit point pointed forward, the cable can be worn straight down or looped over the ear. The nozzle is shallowly angled and not very long, which may make the stock tips useless for some

    Sound (7.5/10) – Monoprice specializes in sourcing cheap, high quality parts and offering reasonably-priced alternatives to brand-name products. When it comes to audio quality, the MEP-933 does exactly that, rivaling far more expensive earphones in traits such as balance, detail, and clarity. The bass of the MEP-933 is punchy but far from overblown - I would even hesitate to call the earphone ‘bass-heavy’. Bass quantity is more in line with sets such as the Brainwavz Beta and MEElec CW31 than bassy IEMs like the Dunu Trident and Soundmagic E10. The low end offers good speed and resolution but doesn’t have the greatest depth. Sub-bass lacks texture and fails to portray individual notes well compared to higher-end sets, especially at lower volume levels. Partly to blame are the MEP-933’s average dynamics, which result in a mild case of ‘one-note’ bass. There is also a bit of reverb audible in the plastic housings, not unlike what I experience with Sennheiser's IE-series earphones.

    The midrange of the MEP-933 is crisp and clean - not just for the asking price, but even next to high-end sets. Detail levels are good and though the bass is slightly boosted, the mids are not notably recessed considering that the presentation is distancing on the whole. Vocals are prominent, if a bit thin – those who prefer a thick or lush sound will probably be better off saving up for a Dunu Trident or Xears set. The MEP-933 is still slightly thicker than the Brainwavz Beta and lacks a bit of the detail and transparency of the latter. It is much smoother, however, especially moving up into the treble region.

    The top end of the MEP-933 is low on sparkle and not very revealing, but not laid-back enough for the earphones to sound dark. Resolution is decent and the MEP-933 is smooth and reasonably well-extended – more so than many pricier earphones. There is a bit of smearing when things get fast and heavy on the cymbals but nothing to complain about with a lower-tier product. Indeed, minute issues with the bass and treble being noteworthy is a testament to how solid a performer the Monoprice is on the whole.

    What’s more interesting is the earphones’ presentation. In contrast to most budget IEMs, which tend to have a congested, in-the-head presentation, the MEP-933 has a wide, airy, and open sound to it. There’s good width to the soundstage but nearly no depth or layering, resulting in poor imaging and a distinct lack of centering ability. The heightened left-right separation gives the MEP-933 a more laid-back, headphone-like feel but also means that imaging and overall positioning ability lags behind not-so-budget sets such as the Soundmagic E10 and Brainwavz M1.

    Value (9/10) – Budget IEMs typically follow a simple formula – cheap, straight-barrel housing, high-sensitivity driver, and massively enhanced bass. The Monoprice MEP-933 shrugs such convention - its gigantic shells and equally enormous 14.2mm transducers, over-the-ear fit, and balanced sound signature make for one atypical budget option. There is no doubt that you are getting much more than your money’s worth in sound quality – the MEP-933 is clear, balanced, and detailed unlike anything I’ve heard in or near its price range. Simply put, it has no business sounding as good as it does. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for user-friendliness – the ergonomics are questionable and the fabric cable is noisy and tangle-prone. Aftermarket tips are likely a necessity as well, and even then the MEP-933 simply won’t work for some users. In the end, it isn’t likely to be the end-all earphone for most, but at least it’s cheap enough to try without any regrets.

    Pros: Fantastic sound quality for the price
    Cons: Noisy, tangle-prone cable; large housings with sharp ridges won’t be comfortable for many

    (3C22) Ultimate Ears 100



    Added Aug 2012

    Details: UE’s entry-level set available in several striking color schemes
    Current Price: $14 from amazon.com (MSRP: $19.99)
    Specs: Driver: Dynamic | Imp: 16Ω | Sens: 105 dB | Freq: 20-20k Hz | Cable: 3.8' L-plug
    Nozzle Size: 4mm | Preferred tips: stock single-flanges
    Wear Style: Straight down or over-the-ear

    Accessories (1/5) - Single-flange silicone tips (4 sizes)
    Build Quality (2.5/5) – Plastic housings and plastic cabling are typical of UE’s entry-level models. The 3.5mm L-plug lacks strain relief and driver flex is a major annoyance
    Isolation (3/5) – Long, angled nozzles and sealed housings provide good isolation
    Microphonics (4/5) – Very low
    Comfort (4/5) – The rectangular housings are small and quite ergonomic, with long angled nozzles and rounded edges. They should fit all but the smallest ears when worn cable-down and can be worn cord-up fairly easily as well.

    Sound (4.9/10) – Clearly oriented at the consumer market, the UE100 is nevertheless a fairly well-balanced earphone with good bass and midrange presence. The low end has good extension and decent impact, though it is not as voluminous as that of the pricier UE350. It lacks crispness, detail, and texture but sounds much less boomy compared to a MEElectronics M2 or Skullcandy Smokin’. The bass-midrange balance is good, with the mids prominent enough even on bass-heavy tracks.

    The midrange tends to lack crispness and clarity next to higher-end sets such as the Brainwavz Beta but for the price the UE100 has nothing to be ashamed of – it is fuller, warmer, and smoother than the similarly-priced Section 8 earbuds and far clearer than the Skullcandy Smokin’. The treble has decent extension and rolls off rather gently at the top. For the most part the top end is smooth, albeit lacking in detail. The presentation is farther back compared to most entry-level sets but has decent air. Next to higher-end IEMs it lacks depth and separation but does give a sense of space that differentiates it from the in-the-head presentation achieved by most cheap earphones. All in all, while the UE100 can hardly be called Hi-Fi, for $10 one could do much worse.

    Value (7.5/10) – The UE100 is a cheap-and-cheerful set with an unusual but very user-friendly form factor, low cable noise, good isolation, and sound that - for the asking price – is decently balanced and surprisingly competent all around. It’s a good backup set or kid earphone to pick up for $10-12 but do make sure the warranty is intact as the driver flex on some pairs can utterly ruin the experience.

    Pros: Consumer-friendly sound with good clarity; comfortable form factor; low cable noise
    Cons: Significant driver flex

    If you can, get the monoprice as it will beat the UE100 in sound quality. But if you look for warranty then UE100 is ok as it sounds nice too.

    There is a 279 IEM comparison thread at headfi which reviews both Monoprice & UE100. Here's what that says-


    (3C21) Monoprice 8320 (MEP-933)


    Reviewed Feb 2012

    Details: 14.2mm dynamic-driver IEM from cable vendor Monoprice
    Current Price: $7 from monoprice.com (MSRP: $7.11)
    Specs: Driver: Dynamic | Imp: 32Ω | Sens: 96 dB | Freq: 20-20k Hz | Cable: 4' I-plug
    Nozzle Size: 5mm | Preferred tips: Sony Hybrids, Meelec long single-flanges, Comply T400
    Wear Style: Straight down or over-the-ear

    Accessories (0/5) - Single-flange silicone tips (1 size)
    Build Quality (2.5/5) – Large housings containing the sizeable drivers are plastic but feel well put-together. Strain reliefs are present all around but the nylon-sheathed cord is fragile, tangle-prone, and lacks a cinch
    Isolation (2/5) – Large, vented housings and short nozzles greatly limit isolation
    Microphonics (3/5) – Annoying when worn cable-down, not much of an issue with over-the-ear wear
    Comfort (2.5/5) – The plastic housings are lightweight but large, thick, and complete with sharp ridges. They seem to be designed for over-the-ear wear but don’t fit those with small/medium-sized ears well. With the cable exit point pointed forward, the cable can be worn straight down or looped over the ear. The nozzle is shallowly angled and not very long, which may make the stock tips useless for some

    thats greart .. koto porbe bro? oitar o ki 2 year replacement warranty?

    anyone have any thoughts on UE 100?
    1,500/= market price. 1,200/= hoile cholbe??? However, i strongly suggest you to increase your budget by 400/= and get the UE 200. I used UE100, seems very ordinary, specially on the bass side.
