I really like forward mids and good rumbling bass. Yamaha eph-100 is great with vocals and it has excellent bass. I have been using it for a week and I personally think they are a steal at $150. I also have Earsonics SM3 v2 which are very similiar to Yamahas in overall sound signature. SM3 has less bass but sounds a little bit more airy(it almost feels like an echo) compared to Yamahas. I personally don't think they are any better than Yamaha's and their build quality is pretty bad considering they cost $340 so I'm definitely sending them back. I will be getting Westone UM3X this week. From what I hear they are great with mids, but I'm a little bit worried about their bass response compared to the Yamahas.
