Need help choosing some custom IEM's around $600 (with customisation) for mainly trance.

Hey everyone.

I currently have a nice desk set-up that i am extremely happy with and i know this is the sound i like but unfortunately i can not take my HD800's everywhere so i am looking for a portable set of custom IEM's that will give me my same musical experience. In the past i had HD650's (moved up to HD800's) and the 650's sounded muddy to me, I love the clarity of the HD800's so my question is are there any CIEM's that would match the clarity of the 800's. Or if not are there any other CIEM's that would match my music taste better. At the current time i have been looking at 1964 Ears V3 (customised with full colour artwork) which lands around $544.

My current portable set-up that i am using is:

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (loaded with 24bit FLAC)
FiiO E07k

and the HD800's


Here's a few sample tracks to get a general idea of the range i listen to:

Thank you all in advance,
Emi <3 xxx

You should ask joker in his thread here

He's the iem guru around here. From what I read, the 1964 will probably have noticably more bass than the hd800, making it better matched for your music.

If it's just the detail you're after, the etymotic er4s will be a much better value. But then, those don't have the best comfort, and especially compared to customs. Your ultimate iem would most likely be the jh13, but that's way over budget.
