Ok, so now i have a bigger issue.

After doing some research on what the people in here say, ive changed my options. Now it is between:

-hiFiman RE0
-PFE 111
-sunrise Xcape IE
-Ety HF5 (er4s appear to have too little bass)

Just go with whatever Ety will fit your budget. They are known for having a great, flat/neutral response.

The Etymotic HF5s would probably be the best choice out of these, and they fit perfectly your requirements.

BTW, I like your instrumentals, they're very nice!

The PFE111 may also be a good choice.  I would recommend it alongside the Ety HF5.  I found the HF5 a little colder in comparison to the PFE (which has a slight warmth to it and a sound that can be listened to for a bit longer without fatigue)

With grey filters? The PFEs do have a bit more warmth due to more bass, but it's treble is more offensive in the midhighs IME, the HF5s are pretty smooth.

I find the ER-4S has less audible bass than the HF5 and the ER-4PT because of the higher impedance. For accurate presentation for an IEM, I find it foolish to overlook the ER-4, especially the ER-4S. I listen to hip-hop and bass focused songs on my ER-4S fine... And if you're actually doing mixing, audio related work, wouldn't it be better to have the most neutral sound possible for the sake of the work? Think, if you use a bassy IEM for your work, others who listen to it with different setups are going to be hearing different things from what you recorded..? It's hard to explain because I can't emphasize as neutral recordings as possible. The file HAS to be somewhat neutral IMO, and the EQ, Amp, and IEM/Headphone should be what actually changes the sonic presentation.

Honestly, if his budget can accommodate an er4s, then that is what he should look at getting, but if he wants to stay a little lower, the HF5 would be a good option. And if there is any noticeable hiss, you can always get a impedance adaptor for around $10-$20 on ebay. You can get them in varying impedances too, if that is something that might interest you.
