Sorry to create a new thread, but this is for discussing my requirement in detail.
I am currently using the Klipsch Image S3 (my first IEM) and is quite satisfied with its sound signature.
I usually listen to Jazz, Blues, and Rock (my favorite artists are Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, Muddy Waters, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Who, and the likes).
I want to upgrade my IEM and would like a balanced signature - normal to mildly warm and clear bass, proper mids and smooth treble (not a big fan of treble). My budget would be around 120$, but can go upto 200$ if something really compelling comes up.
Could anyone suggest something to match my taste? Till now, I have kind of looked into MEElectronics' A151 and A161, Vsonic's GR07, and a couple more reviews but not really convinced about them.
Thanks in advance.
More info: I would listen on my Sony Xperia P phone (with PowerAMP). I usually keep the equalizer to neutral, and listen in medium volume. The listening environment is usually quite noisy.
