In the market for new IEMs. I enjoy an analytical earphone and my budget is $200.

My current headphones are the ath-a900x, but the pads on the top broke off while I was trying to put a new rubber band in between them. I have never owned or listened to a pair of high quality earbuds, but I know I like an analytical sound that's is very balanced and detailed. These will be my everyday earphones and I will be using them throughout the day so durability and comfort would be nice. I like listening to electronic, rock, some pop, and alternative. The only genres I don't listen to a lot is country and classical. I was thinking about going with either the vsonic gr07 or the ckm1000, but haven't been able to find a lot about the ckm1000 ($190 on amazon).

Look at the Etymotics. Can't get much more analytical than them.

I was looking at the er4p and I have heard that they aren't comfortable...at all. I have no doubt that I would enjoy the sound, but I don't know if I can cope with them in my ears all day.

I like the Etys. When I first tried them, they felt different and it took a while to get used to the flanges being so deep in the ear, but now I find them really comfortable. They also provide excellent noise isolation.

Good to hear, I guess it's just mixed opinions then. Thanks for the recommendation :)

Ath-IM02. Very good IEM for the money. It has an analytical sound signature that's very detailed. I also find them very comfortable. Keep in mind the wire wraps over the ear- but I can wear for hours without them feeling uncomfortable.
