    Audeze iSINE 10 & iSINE 20: Audeze releases two new IEM planar magnetic earphones

    You can check these out: Or try my settings (based on one of the above): I use these with my iSine 10 and find them just right at the low SPL I'm used to, otherwise way too bassy. The above width values are given in octaves...

    crinacle's IEM FR measurement database

    If you're concerned about tonal balance, you need to lower the bass to compensate for the extra bass from the environment. If you're concerned about bass reproduction and are ready to accept some masking of other frequency ranges, then go ahead and add some extra bass.

    If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you...
