I guess my reasoning is a bit strange, but I went with whatever IEMs had massive critical acclaim, and cost about $100 or more. I'm using Head-Fi and TheHeadphoneList for references. All of the IEMs I added are well-regarded for the money. However, none of the IEMs I added dip below the $100 price point - which is pretty much the sweet spot for earphones. Beyond that, you see massive diminishing returns, with the exception of customs.

That's what I thought when I saw the initial suggestions of the poll despite the title. I understand your rationale, and yeah, customs...my country's customs has...[shamefully] organizational level corruption so they charge almost 100% for imports not to mention the $15 storage fee PER DAY. Last time I had something imported from price japan. I got them to lower the actual value of the product so that customs wouldn't destroy my wallet. Just a suggestion: Maybe you could have had a title like Giants and Giant Killers (IEMs only; start at 100 USD MSRP), or to be more frank High Price to Performance ratio IEMs
