After selling 95% of all my IEMS/OEMS...these are what I have left, and ranking according to my favorite sound sigs :

 

EDIT : Just got some Comply T-200 Olive tips and put them on each of my IEM's, and this has influenced my original order. 

 

1. Ultimate Ears 700

2. Monster Miles Davis Trumpet

3. JVC HAFX 40

4. Philips SHE3580

5. Brainwavz Delta

6. JVC HAFX 30

 

Since the Comply tips, the Delta's sound was the most affected in a negative way. The lushness was gone, and the sound became more laid back, with the bass still being too thick boomy. No more do the sound like my MMDT's. My UE 700 really opened up, adding punchy bass to their resolution, detail retrieval, and fit. They easily jumped to the top of the pack. The MMDT don't have comply tips, so they remain a tad too bassy, and the highs are still too laid back, but still good overall and pretty. The JVC FX 40's changed the most for the better! Gone is that excruciating top end "smack" and unruliness in the treble that made them so disappointing. They've become very smooth and detailed with these tips. while retaining a deep rounded bass. They jump all but the UE 700's and the MMDT. The 3580's really got a bit more transparent, but lost a tad bit of the top end sparkle I liked. They tamed up a bit, but the bass is still controlled and deep, so they move just above the Delta's ever so slightly. The JVC 30's are complete crap on a wire. Useless ****. 

 

*** Just purchased the TDK IE800 dual dynamic drivers, after selling my Sennheiser CX 890i's and my Quadbeat 2's. Order could change very soon.

Can you recommend me a headphone equal or better than sr80i except for ms1 because they're not available in my country. I'm not pulling the trigger on Grado sr80i yet because I'm concerned about it's versatility, and I enjoy a lot of music genre except rap and R&B. Unless someone would tell me it's versatile enough for other genres other than rock and metal.  Max $100, preferably doesn't need an amp unless it will not go over my budget too much and not bass oriented. And is L-cush pad really a must for sr80i? Thanks.
