Speaking of bassy, NHT SuperBuds review has been added. The most up-to-date IEM ranking can be found here. 
 In two words, "less bassy" . Review coming soon. 
 No, in my mind to be called a direct upgrade over something else an earphone should have the same/pretty similar sound signature.
 The Sennheisers have been around a lot longer and there was much, much less competition when they were introduced, so they had time to build up a huge following. They're a warmer, smoother sort of earphone versus the brighter, livelier DN-1000s. The Senns are fine if you need a major brand, but they don't really offer anything over a cheaper RHA MA750i or Yamaha EPH-100 in terms of sound, and aren't very similar to the DN-1000.   The MA750 is warmer, bassier, and smoother...
 In this case probably not a better fit for you than the DN-1000s. I compared them here: http://theheadphonelist.com/headphone_review/dunu-dn-2000/  Yep, that review is in the works! 
 The RHA MA750 may not have as much bass as the T10, but is a more well-rounded and arguably more natural-sounding warm IEM. It is also quite good value - better than the T10 IMO. The Yamaha EPH-100 would be my other recommendation. The DN-1000 would also be a very good option - a little less bassy and brighter, but not far removed from the v-shaped tuning of the S4. The T10s have more bass, and if you need that level of enhancement you may not find anything better, but I...
  Quote:Hard to beat the HF5 for detail in that price range. Soundstage is easier. If you're looking to maximize value your best bet IMO would be a nice dual-BA (TWFK) based set. If you're aiming for HF5 price range (<$120) it would probably be a lightly used VSonic VC1000 or UE700. For sleeping the tiny UE700 is better, but not sure if the cable will hold up to sleeping duty.   Nothing that I'm familiar with is a perfect match. The 1964-V3 is closest - it's one of the...
 I guess a timeless design like the Grados is as good as any to model your headphones after. And no, aside from the fact that they have some upper midrange boost, as do the Grado headphones I've tried, these didn't really remind me of any Grado set.   This kind of deteriorates as you get down into the 6-7 pt range but near the top that's about right.
Added a new headphone review: Xiaomi Mi On/Over-ear headphones 
 Thanks! I wish there was a little warning chime I'd get when there's consistent reports of a large proportion of a particular earphone model failing with no fix from the manufacturer, but unfortunately that's not the case.
