  They should know that the XX IEMs are just not bassy enough for me    Yes, I'm happy with the Elation so far. Seems to be smoother than my old FX101/FR301 (harshness is my biggest issue with those).  +1 on that being an IE7 clone. Not a bad thing, those were always comfy for me, assuming Kanen got the nozzle angle right.
 No, I haven't tried the Supra. SD-2 is good, a bit on the warm/dark side compared to my custom Noble 4S (which I consider more neutral overall) but very smooth and pleasant. The Alclair Reference is a bit more v-shaped overall. Unless you can go to the next level of Custom Art (Pro330v2) I would stick with universals in that price range for neutral sound.    Substantial bass means not the SD-2 and probably not the SM64... SM64 has very good bass but I wouldn't call it...
I haven't tried them myself but that^ seems reasonable. Wouldn't mind an FXT90 follow-up/upgrade. Unfortunately JVC just keeps sending me more Xtreme Xplosives...
 The T10 wasn't to my liking so it didn't get a review. The T20 is at InnerFidelity for measurements, but I should be doing a review of that one after I get it back. 
 I have no clue what the MDR-1A sounds like (or the Sony for that matter) so I can't say which IEM sounds most similar. The MA750 and Momentum are very good earphones that sound moderately different from each other. I tend to prefer the smoother MA750i.  Same as above, no experience with those headphones so I can't make any recommendations based on that, but if you're looking for balanced/neutral IEMs there's tons of options in every price range. I recommended some...
 Thanks! This was probably the most time-consuming review to date (or at least since the AKG K3003). Very complex product, but that's part of its appeal. For what you want I'd try to find an EX1000. The EX1000 is kind of a mix of the better traits of the MDR-7550 and GR07, and is more in line with what you want. The FLC8 starts off at a disadvantage in terms of sound signature (again, compared to what you want) and while it can get there with tweaking, I personally would...
Added a review for the FLC Tech FLC 8. 
 I agree with ClassicalViola - it really depends on the type of sound you want our of your earphones. An Ety like the HF5 or ER4PT will give you an extremely clear and detailed sound, which generally is a good thing for classical music and for vocals, but I have no doubt that others prefer something else for the same genres - more bass, more mids, more warmth - whatever. Ultimately it depends on the individual listener.
 Sounds like you did get a newer version because mine came with the gray-gray-dark gray configuration out of the box. Glad you're liking them so far! It really does take a while to properly "discover" and explore this IEM but it should be an enjoyable process. 
 I would pretty much go by sound signature and comfort. If you're okay with an on-ear fit and a warm and smooth sound that puts clarity in the backseat a bit, the M-80 is your guy. If you'd rather have something more aggressive and v-shaped (emphasis on bass and upper mids/treble) and again don't mind the on-ear fit, go for the HD25. In all other cases, the M50 (or M50x) is more of the default/safe choice.
