So are you saying that the mini^3 is better (SQ-wise)?
Which is better based on sound quality? A mini^3 or a portable/semi-portable pimeta?
another vote for the ER-6i
I see, I see... I understand. I use the ER-4S (bass {mono})->mono-to-stereo->cmoy->ER-4S) when I practice the bass at home. Really tight sound. But the OP doesn't want IEM's... I don't know what to suggest... KSC-75? (Even though they're <$20)
He plays the bass. So... maybe the akg K81 DJ's? EDIT: Whoops, I guess you already mentioned the akg's... I think I've heard that they have more bass, but I've never auditioned them before.

So... what is the conclusion? I'm in the same situation as the OP.
This problem's kind of a deal-breaker for me... I'm waiting for apple to do a firmware update to fix the phase and treble problems. I hope they will.
Hahaha... Well, I guess you should get the ER-4P for now. I can't speak for the iM616, but I can for the iM716. The ER-4P, compared to the iM716 (in hd mode), has a darker sound, has higher, crisper highs, has lower lows, has more bass in quality and quantity, and is generally better overall. I find the ER-4S (or ER-4P + P>S adapter) works fine without an amp (although I almost always prefer to use an amp). I don't listen to music at very high levels. YMMV.
I find that the pouch that came with the ER-4's is perfect! Here's how I do it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slshSv7Xpb8 Sorry for the poor lighting, but I think it's easy enough to recognize what's going on in the video.
