    Looking for High End IEM

    I want a high end IEM that is very analytical, detailed, and good imaging. Max budget is around $1,200. I have an O2 dac. I was thinking of Ultimate Ears: UERM, as i have heard they are quite good in what i'm looking for, but want to hear more opinions before i spend $1,000.
