Right now I'm considering:

 

VSonic GR07 - http://www.aliexpress.com/product-gs/447796583-Vsonic-GR07-R07--wholesalers.html?SID=null&creative=10887173&PID=3575105&partner=CJ

 

Westone UM3X - http://cgi.ebay.com/WESTONE-UM3X-Sound-Noise-Isolating-Earphones-Monitors-/230483054737?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories&hash=item35a9dc5091

 

J-Phonic K2 SP - official website

 

Also considering custom SpiralEars 2-way pro with 2 drivers. What do you guys think? ^^ Sorry but Atrio is ugly. I can't help it :(

Is this one better than SE535? Should I take RC version, or it increases the chances of cable failure highly?

2 year Westone warranty is great.  I have owned RC and regular version and regular version is more comfy and easier to deal with without the memory wire pieces.  Just try to be careful not to abuse them.

The cable is not field-replaceable. In all other respects, an excellent choice.

Have you considered 1964ears - triple? I've ordered one today, and I'm also a live musician. I mainly play electric guitar and sing, but have been playing drums as well. They're 400 USD, and the reviews are very positive. They are said to have a fairly flat sound, which should be good for a drummer. 

 

I found that my dual driver universals (UE super.fi5) lacked power in the low end for the typically dynamic live sound use.

 

This makes me wonder if a Triple driver is better for stage musicians.

I do consider 1964ears. But if I'm going custom I think I am more into Unique Melody. It have very positive feedback. They don't charge for every little custom feature like 1964ears, and they have free shipping :P But I still need to read some reviews of those 2, and make my mind.
