Hi i am looking for a new pair of IEM i had monster turbines but lost them i am looking for a pair that sounds as good if not better than them.I use an ipod nano 6th gen with 320kps songs.I listen to R&B rap hip hop and house dubstep music.My budget is 100-250.I have been looking at something like sony xba4 or xba3 or ultimate ears tf10.I am looking for something  that has good punchiy bass strong mids like vocals and controled highs that do not get squeaky at high volume.I also use Fiio E6. Thanks

The UE TF10Pro, GR07 are highly recommended and both offers tight punchy bass, great mids, clear highs but not very extended. Other IEMs like XBA4(better bass response), JVC FXZ200, Westone 3, Klipsch Image X10, UM3x are also good buy.

Nope, there is no difference in the UE TF10PRO and the UE TF10. Both are the same units. Do note that although the TF10 does have very strong punchy bass in a BA setup, its mids (especially if you're looking for upfront vocals) do sound recessed. However its treble extends very well and there is alot of energy present in instruments. Soundstage is also pretty wide. Puts you in ~6-8 rows of the concert hall.
If you're looking for strong and upfront mids with excellent instrument separation and strong punchy bass, I would recommend the westone UM3X. However, the only disappointment lies in the soundstage which is somewhat constricted and narrow IMO.
Hope that helps! smily_headphones1.gif

The Ortofon e-Q5, TDK BA200 and Earsonics SM2 would be worth checking out, all 3 are around $200 and under.

The UETF10Pro, UETF10 are same but UE10Pro are CIEMs, and TF10Pro are better sounding than UE700 with higher resolution and more bass response. Actually GR07 are comparable to UETF10Pro in term of soundquality and they( GR07) offers wide soundstage, tight punchy bass, clear mids, highs.

I have a pair of Westone ES-5's that are incredible, but they probably don't have the bass punch you're looking for.

I do not need a super amount of bass and I thought the monster turbines had more than enough bass but mids where OK and vocals sounded held back. And i just dont want to buy them again.Do the ue700 sound "bare" in a way.Will the Fiio E6 amp help the ue700 bass wise thanks

You may like RE272 because it offers great audiophile like mids, highs and portray vocals (M/F) so good with good bass response but not like Turbine. If need tight punchy bass (like on Turbine) with great vocal, mids then GR07, Sony XB90EX, Yamaha EPH100, JVC FX700 are great buy.

I wouldn't Recommend the RE727s for them - from his genres it's evident he wants bassy earphones and the RE727s are extremely bass light.

+1 on the EPH-100s though, plenty of bass response w/ those.
