It's an interesting idea. However, from our perspective as consumers, isn't this just like having 4 different earphones with their own sound signature, except that they're all from the same company?

I've been looking to get a portable amp to increase the bass even more (yeah i've got a problem). Anyone paired the turbines with...
Awesome! Thanks for taking the plunge and trying these out.

It would help if you could define what you mean by "best" and what type of music you listen to. Perceived sound quality is very subjective and what's good to someone could be terrible to another. I have the Turbines and I love them, but from what I've heard, the Q-Jays have a very different sound characteristic, so it's kind of hard to tell what it is you're looking for. Or alternatively, you could try using the search function and read what people have to say about...

The D2000's do an amazing job with clearly hitting on the highs and lows but don't punch as much. Diva vocals? I'm afraid that most of my dubstep collection doesn't utilize vocals. One of the few tracks I have that does, Double Face by Milanese (YouTube - Milanese - Double Face (Featuring Kate Kestrel)),...

If your main issue is that they're not loud enough then, yes, either the E3 or the E5 would make them louder. I would still recommend the E5 over the E3 though, especially for portable use. The lack of an on/off switch on the E3 is quite annoying as you have to...

At least you haven't bought them and THEN find out about the sound quality or lack thereof. I once bought a pair of Skullcandy headphones without knowing what I was getting myself into. It sucks spending money on a pair of headphones only to find out that their quality is so bad that the...

The bass enhancement can't be switched off on the E3. While one the best points about the Turbines are their bass and the additional bass provided by the Fiio amps might be nice for hip hop and other bassy music, you might find it a bit much on songs that don't rely as much on the...
