Looking for an introductory pair of IEMs or Earbuds with decent treble for $50 (USD) or less

Hey,

   I was looking for a pair of introductory IEMs or Earbuds that have decent treble (as the title says). For the most part, I've

used Skull Candy ink'd which I haven't been disappointed with; however, I want to take a step up.

 

Most of the time I would be using them either through a cellphone, iPod 5th Gen (with RockBox), or directly into a computer.

So I would need to have some level of durability.

 

I'd like something that doesn't require an amplifier and isn't too heavy in bass (beats..) while not sounding like a like a tin can.

 

That all being said, I have done some research and read one of the lists here and am looking at a pair JVC HAFX40B.

 

 

What I'd like to know:

1) Is there a pair that might suite me better

2) Is there anything I should be aware of that might discourage me from this pair?

 

 

Hopefully the following list might help.

 

Music Listened To

Punk

Tango

Visual Kei (Moi Dix Mois, Malice Mizer)

Neo-classical metal

Breathy Vocalists (Tori Amos, Chino Moreno, Polly Scattergood)

Cha-Cha

Classical

 

Music Format

Ogg-Vorbis

Wav

 

Let me know if there is any other information that I can provide.

That was a lot of information, but I'd rather have too much documentation than too little. Thank you very much.

 

Looking at the reviews between the JVC HAFX-40B and the ViSang R02 I'll go with the ViSang.

 

Hopefully I can report back soon with a pleasant experience.
