You gotta get dem Beats brah!! (kidding)

Check out Jokers review of a ton of different IEMs. I would go all out on the earphones and skip the DAC. I listen to $400 IEMs with my iPhone and I think it's fine.

The Monster Turbine Pro Gold is good (around $150 on amazon I think). The vsonic GR07 is good too (I think theyre about $180). I haven't heard them, but they get good reviews.

I think the Sennheiser CX 985 is about $150-200 range. It's a nice IEM that doesn't offer too much bass, but is reasonably clear.

 

Don't bother getting a DAC at that price.

Base on 'Non-overwhelming bass'

ACS T15 / Klipsch Image X10 (Promotions and Discount on this one are AWESOME!) / Fischer Audio DBA-02 / VSonic GR07

And most recommended from me, Rock It Sounds R-50 (currently in love with it) flat bass, not much rumble but accurate. with great neutral mids and sparkling highs(some sibilance for some)... I feel like i'm repeating Joker's review.

Try narrow the choices down and go demo at the store, And you could end up buying Monster Turbine Pro Gold.

You can use an external amp with an iPhone, but not an external DAC unless you jailbreak it and use the camera kit to plug in an external DAC. But even then it's ify because some DACs won't work because of power consumption. There is a thread in here about it. Check out Jokers review on a ton of different IEMs. He's very good at describing the sonic differences, SQ, soundstage. Imaging ect. If you check out this this thread I bet you could find what your looking for.
