You'll have to provide more information than that my friend. What type of signature are you used to, or are after?

LOTS of bass, clean mids, and clear highs. Bass and highs are my main priority for these IEMs

I would strike TF10, EX600, and HJE900, and maybe even Turbine off that list.  Though they may have solid bass, but they are no bass monsters, and some may give you fit issues that easily lose seal.  I have no ideas about the rest on that list.
JVC FX500 may be a good one - but if you got money to burn, its bigger brother FX700 sounds much better (explosive bass, with sparkling highs to match), at least based on my brief demo.

The first one that comes to my mind, based upon the above statement, and from my experience alone, is the JVC FX700. While I haven't heard the FX500 myself, I'm sure it's not a bad option either. But if you take the JVC route, beware of fakes. The one which comes to mind, second only to the JVC's, is the Atrio M5. But of course, you'll find the ver same discussion taking place over at the other thread that was linked to.

It's the Atrio M5 you're after my friend. It's easy to be misled since there are a few variations in the names. So long as it's the Atrio M5, with some mention of the MG7 drivers in the description or elsewhere, you should be fine.

I second the Atrio recommendation.
 
Dubstep should be focussed in the sub-bass region (Brostep is not) which is where the Atrio excels.
