After lurking here for while in search of a new IEM I finally decided to register, since I'm still unsure what to get.
I'm no expert at describing the sound I'm looking for, but I enjoy a fairly balanced one. Bass is important, but I'd go for fast and punchy over large and bloated. I'd use it to listen to various genres, with a focus on (heavier) rock/ metal and acoustic music, but also including classical and some electronic. This, of course, means that I'd like a versatile IEM. (EDIT: I seem to have left this out, but fairly good instrument separation would be nice.)
As far as design is concerned, I really prefer wearing them over-the-ear to straight down. Also, decent isolation is a must, but nothing extreme is necessary.
The source would be an iPod Touch for the time being, but that might change in the near future.
The one's I've looked at the most are thre VSonic VSD1(S) and the Zero Audio Carbo Tenore, the latter one being harder to acquire.
Can anyone give me some advice?
