===== February 2014 EDIT (same question) =====
Original post was in November 2012 (when I thought I lost my IEMs). Now, in February 2014, I surely lost my Etymotic HF2's. The cables were on two parts torn already, but I enjoyed the Etymotics for 4 years. So I need something new.
However, as I said I enjoyed them a lot - excellent clarity, balanced sound, perfect fit (at least for me), and superb isolation.
So simply said I want some balanced IEMs with an excellent isolation AND with mic & controls. And don't want an overemphasized bass. However, I also have Grado SR325is headphones which I totally love (but are not balanced), so if there are "Grado-IEMS with mic" I'll be very interested too!
I made a list with potential candidates in 2012 below, and didn't recheck it now in 2014. So, are there any suggestions for good earphones with excellent isolation and mic?
