You could try these. SendStation - Products - earBuddy

Most double flange tips don't fit for me and the ones that do, usually end up providing worse sound than if I were to use a single...
Could either of you look at how the clips are attached to the main unit? Specifically, are they attached the same way as the Koss KSC35/75? Would they work with the headband used in this mod? Koss KSC75 QuickMods - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net
I'd suggest the album Endtroducing by DJ Shadow although I'm not sure whether you'd consider it too abstract or directionless. I'd say the entire album comes off as a coherent whole although that effect might be lessened or disappear if you only listen to tracks individually. Can you mention any tracks that might be good examples of the criteria you're looking for?

I've found that some of their reviews coincide with quite a few opinions that I've seen on Headfi. Admittedly, their reviews might not be quite as detailed as some I've seen here, but they do review more headphones than quite a few places that provide more...

I don't own a pair of these but I was checking them out as a potential purchase and reading reviews about them. Some of the reviews I read mentioned their large size and that they might stick out pretty far out of your ears, so unless you actually have a demo pair in a store around you, you might want to be a little cautious.

I agree that more people need to learn to use the search function, but I do think that threads that ask "What earphone recommendations are there for a budget under $XX?" do have some value because what's available changes over time. That being said, I think there should be rules or standards in place for when such a question is asked. I've seen too many threads that start with the OP providing no information on what sound they're looking for or what they'll be using...
