while md retains that extension and sparkle but smooths it out which leads to more listening hours

I admit that the look of the Miles Davis Edition is fantastic but if the trebles are a bit more rolled off I'm not sure if I'm going to like them.

I don't use earphones for long listening session, max an hour at a time.

JVC FX700 has wide soundstage, clear extended highs, detailed mids and deep reverbing bass.........

I read that now the 535 don't have the rolled off trebles anymore. Is that the case and if so would they be better than the trebles of the IE8?

Well, my IE8 have sold on ebay so I'm  "earphoneless" now

Radius DDM is still what Id recommend. Much better then IE8 and price is unbelievable. Want something expensive, SM3 goes well with your description.  e-Q7 has superb base for BA earphones. Do not get confused with Dynamic transducers and Balanced armature hybrid such as e-Q7. Big difference. CK10 is similar to e-Q7 but can not stand near e-Q7 quality.

Second the SM3's. They're exactly as the OP is seeking with a very nice impactful bass (somewhat less than the IE8's yet more than the TF10's), a rich and layered sound with fantastic detail (at least as much or more than the TF10's to my ears), and a smooth non-fatiguing nature which you can listen to all day without being grated on in the least.

There was also a suggestiond for the Westone 3 (which are available here in Australia), how do they compare to the SM3 and the Monster Turbine Copper as they were the other models suggested? Sorry about all the questions, but I just want to try to make the right purchase this time and most of these models I have to buy without having the chance to try them first

Gerbi, there is shop in Perth which sells  many great earphones including Radius DDM, Their name is headphonic I believe. Is always best to audition prior purchasing earphones.

Well I find the SM3's more relaxed in their treble style than both the Westone 3 and the Coppers (but the Westone 3 is from memory), which is why I think they're a worthwhile consideration for the OP with their mellow side like the IE8's. But while being so relaxed, they still have an incredible amount of detail. Some recent owners have been finding the treble rolled off, or recessed, but I simply don't hear them that way. To my ears they are as extended and detailed as the TF10's, but with better layering and a more 3D sound space.

One that recently surprised me with it's sound was the Klipsch X10. More bass than the X5 (Which I also have) and an extremely good listen.

Indeed. I concur.

I know mate, I purchased a few from them already, but they only let you audition the samples they are given from some manufacturers (mainly Sure and UE). If they don't have a test unit they don't open the box and let you try them.

Gerbi, I would be surprised if headphonic (and not only them, any retail specialized headphones shop) carries certain products and do not have sample units available in stock for auditioning. Have you already visited their shop?

I guess you have been there, well it wont hurt asking them regarding trying earphones without buying one.
