I am going to be purchase a pair of new headphones tommorow but I am looking for a step up from the MTPCs. I adore my MTPCs but after hearing some of the Grado's qualities I started craving certain aspects my IEMs did't project. I decided that a hybrid between the MTPCs and Grados Cans would be ideal. The neutrality and punchy bass(can do with less quantity) that the Turbine Coppers provide and the clarity and detail that Grados provide would be the perfect sound for me. I was thinking about the Westone 4s as a possible candidate, but of course other suggestions are more than welcome.
1) Would a step up from the Turbine Coppers be significant?
2) Is it possible to match Grado SR325is' sound with $500 IEMs?
3) Which IEM best fits my descriptions?
