how about the hippo's vb, assuming i can find the hje900s (btw why isn't j&r selling them anymore), which ones do you guys would think is better? I'd like to keep the clarity of the phonaks, but just need some more thump in my bass.

i've also seen denon c710, fischer audio eterna, and Audio Technica cks70 thats about my price range. But i'm worried that these might be too much bass, and i'm hoping that these can have somewhat of similar quality of mids and highs compared to the phonaks. I'd like to be able to hear the vocals, have the bass that i can feel (impact if thats the right word i'm assuming?), but also not be overwhelmed by the bass that i can't hear any other details and kill my eardrums.

The S4s may be a good choice for you as well.  I listen to lots of Hip-Hop, R&B, and Jazz.  There are instruments, vocals, dynamics in music that I never knew existed in songs before I listened to them through the S4s.  Cant beat em for $80.......plus a 2yr warranty.

If you want bass I would say S4 or the Brainwavz M3.  RE-ZERO just won't have the bass punch you are looking for hip-hop music.

I've read a couple of reviews stating that Brainwavz M2 were superior or prefered by the reviewer over S4. All M3-M2 comparisons said that the M3s are on a level above M2. One person prefered M2 because of the larger bass quantity, though; but as I understand it, M3 have plenty of bass too, just not as extremely much as M2.

 

I haven't heard S4 or M3 yet, so I can only write what I've read. I can assure you that the bass quantity on the M2s is insane, yet not quite too much for my taste. It can handle my M6s three bass enhancers all at the same time (EQ, Bass Boost, PCE with slight Bass enhancement) without giving up like many other earphones, so I guess the M3s can easily be EQd to give more bass with still retaining great overall sound.
