im considering soundmagic e10 and superlux hd330/660..they say full sized headphones have better sound quality than iems of the same price..so what would you recommend between these headphones? im just considering sound quality and lifespan..obviously im tight on budget..thanks

I agree. I think good full-sized headphones generally have better SQ to IEMs at the same price point. The disadvantage is they are less portable.

If isolation is not required, be sure to check out the Superlux HD668B semi-open headphones, too.
