If not, how about openback IEMs? (other than Stax srs-002)
Does there exist planar-magnetic IEM?

AFAIK, VSonic are still working on their planar magnetic IEM. If they succeed in bringing it to market, it will be the first mass-produced IEM of its type.
This sort of thing is possible nowadays, as powerful portable amps are becoming more readily available and affordable. Something like a Fiio E12 or an iBasso P4 should be able to drive it well.
I suspect, however, that the VSonic will not be cheap...
There is a thread on this product on HF.
