Apologies for the generic nature of the post, but I'm trying to garner as much feedback as possible.
Yesterday, I managed to misplace my pride and joy Sennheiser IE8 IEMs (totally gutted - I've had them for about a year) so I'm looking around at alternatives before I make my next purchase.
I mainly listen to heavy metal (Iron Maiden, Saxon, Manowar, Judas Priest) and rock (Whitesnake, Genesis, Queen, Skid Row) as well as some easy listening (Yanni, Kenny G, Adiemus, Enya) and musical theatre (Les Miserables, Starlight Express, Phantom of the Opera). My main sound preference is bass +2, mid -1, treble -2 but that can vary depending on what I'm listening to.
I've been pointed in the direction of Ultimate Ears (a colleague has a pair of pre-Logitech TripleFi's) but I'm unsure about the "harsh treble" reviews I've read. I'm leaning towards the Sennheiser IE80s purely out of convention (I'm a self-confessed Sennheiser fan and have transitioned from CX-300 to CX-400 to CX-550 to IE6 to IE8), but I'm also willing to consider others if there's a good reason for it.
Should probably also mention my price range - anything up to £200 but ideally under £150 :)
Thanks in advance!
