Can you think of anything that might give a little more oomph then? Maybe a bit more bass or less sterileness. What can you recommend that can make it a little easier to relax and get into the music?
Etymotics have the reputation of being hyper-detailed, which can be good or bad, depending on the quality of your recordings and rips (if you use digital format). As the previous poster said, they can be a bit sterile, which is great for critical listening, but can make it difficult to relax and get into the music.
I've heard good things about the RE-0/RE-ZERO, which also have a strong reputation for detail and neutrality, but tend to be a bit more musical than the Etymotics. Personally, I like the VSonic GR07, but they're a bit out of your price range (~$160). They sound nice with Pink Floyd and the Moody Blues - detailed and balanced, but with a bit more body to the bass than the average "balanced" headphones, which tend to be rather thin on the bottom end. Very clear, clean sound.
EDIT: If you liked your old Shures, the SE215 is still around, afaik.
