Hi everyone, this is my first post here although I have become somewhat familiar with this site from looking at a few reviews on here.
My budget is around £350 for the IEMs, although I'm willing to stretch it a bit. I will be listening mostly to CD quality music through Amarra HiFi or an iPhone 4. I have a Hippo CriCri+ but am willing to upgrade to something portable under £250.
I don't want to lose clarity or energy in the bass, guitar or drums but don't want an exaggerated treble or recessed mids. Don't want vocals to get in the way of other instruments. I find the GR07 I own too treble heavy for my liking. I also would like something with a removable cable.
I listen mostly to progressive rock, extreme metal and RIO. Here are a few bands/artists to give you an idea: The Mars Volta, King Crimson, Opeth, Henry Cow, Don Caballero, John Coltrane, Camel, Kayo Dot, Deathspell Omega, PFM, Genesis, Voivod.
I've been looking at the 4r/w40 (don't know how different these two are in terms of sound), SM64 and the StageDiver 2.
