 I've only tried these at a show. Didn't think the sound was special, but they were listed at like $150 for the wired version back then. I probably wouldn't mind them at $40 
 Don't have that information - my point was that it's very likely that audiologists in Westone's dealer network are more experienced when it comes to custom IEM impressions than random ones you'd find in the yellow pages. 
 I don't know anything about this company but impressions are definitely something you can do yourself if you are careful- see here: http://theheadphonelist.com/ear-self-impressions-for-custom-in-ear-monitors-what-you-need-to-know/   Quite a few options for enhanced-bass earphones with detachable cables among universal-fit IEMs: EarSonics Velvet, InEar StageDiver SD-3, Ultrasone IQ, Sony XBA-Z5, Sony XBA-H3, Fidue A83, Sennheiser IE80 etc. Plus some I haven't tried, like...
 thx1000 posted the link. For accuracy and neutrlaity - S2. For a bassier, more v-shaped sound signature - Momentum in-ear.  Yes, I just got Tyll's pair. Not sure if I will review them here or on InnerFidelity yet, but I'll get one put up.
 Hmm.. that's good news if they're officially carried by AT USA. Hidition NT 6 if you have $1400 laying around 
 The earphones fitting your needs/sound preferences is much more important than some number assigned to the earphones by a random headphone geek on the interwebs  If the GR07's sound seems like it will resolve the issues you have with the DN-1000, it may be an upgrade for you (but perhaps not for someone else). The H3 and IE8 have more boomy bass than the DN-1000, so probably not an upgrade in this case. The SportBud has good bass quality but lower quantity (closer to GR07...
 Bass not tight enough on the DN-1000? If that's the case probably going to have to either give up some bass quantity in exchange for quality/tightness (e.g. GR07 BE or Philips Fidelio S2) or spend more $$ than the DN-1000 costs (e.g. DN-2000, FLC Technology FLC8, and so on). 
  Both the Music One and VC1000 have much less bass than a DN-1000.
 Most dynamics and some BAs will have more bass than the RE-400, so you're in luck there. The smooth treble while maintaining detail is the hard part - you have sets like the RHA MA750, which by virtue of being rather bassy end up losing some detail in the midrange compared to the RE-400 and other flatter earphones. And then you have sets like the GR07BE, which have both the bass kick and the clarity/detail, but aren't particularly smooth. Your options are to try something...
 Yeah, they're not similar. Ortofons are pretty well-balanced, maybe a touch warmer than neutral but not significantly so. Very good earphones if you're in that situation where you don't want much of a bass boost OR a super flat sound. The FXT90 has a more conventional "v-shaped" sound tuning with enhanced bass and sparkly treble, and a more forward presentation as well compared to the more spacious e-Q5.
