If you're talking about the 112, I find the black filters to give a nice bit of warmth (more than just a touch) with slightly improved sound stage.

Either the 012 and 112 with the same filters produce identical sounds due to the same driver so yes. I normally use Grey filters and find it a tad warm, and yes the blacks definitely sound warmer than the Greys for some reason..

Yes, both the 012 and 112 do sound identical.  The blacks should sound warmer since the filter constricts the mids a little more to also create a darker sound.  Bass decay slows down with the black filter as well (which adds to the warmth)...

After much debate and reading, I went a head and ordered the RE-262's. Now I need to settle on a cMoy and I should be set. Depending on how this whole IEM experience goes, I may likely try some of the others that have been suggested as well.

Nice choice, they do need a bit of burn-in and after about 15 to 20 hours they sound really good and I've been told they improve even more after 50 or so.

Cool...I definitely post up some impressions.

I will highly recommend the Klipsch Image X10, JVC FX3X for warm soundsignature, wide soundstage and bassy but not too bassheavy.

Just ordered the JDS cMoyBB V2.03 to go along with my new IEM's. Figured I needed to go ahead and order since the IEM's will hopefully be here by end of the week AND I just fried my freakin' desktop amp.
