so while i was walking through the door one of the wire got caught up and i didnt notice, and boom you got yourself a hippo VB with only 1 earpiece
 
i really liked the hippo VB amazing for my rap music, but when i listened to trance the treble seemed a bit harsh to me
 
i got my eyes on the klipsh image s4i how do you think it will stack up against the VB?
 
i'm also willing to get triple fi's but i can't find a place where it's cheap, not hippo VB cheap, but around 150 - 200 would be good
 
but still preferably looking in the 60$ - 100$ range

looking at reviews I think the Xears TD-III might be what you're looking for. They have plenty of bass like the VBs and sound good all round. I would think the Klipsch was harsher but I haven't listened to any of these personally.

Yea looks like most ppl are using google translate to figure the site out. Also, someone on the TD III appreciation thread ordered his in Toronto, Ontario.

if you thought the vb was harsh, dont go for the s4.  I have a pair of xears N3i and am happy with them.  I would be willing to try more Xears products.  I also really liked my Fischer Audio Eternas when I had them.  At one point I had the VB, S4 and Eternas at the same time and listened tot he Eternas more than any of the 3.

I have no experience with the Xears the previous poster mentioned but if I had to choose between mine and the turbines, I would probably get the turbines.  solid build and I liked the sound if you are lookign for a bass heavy IEM.  I may end up picking up a pair myself.

Radius DDM are great for some heavy bass loads for under $200 among best sounding  IEMs on the market.

the reports of an odd fit are the only thing keeping me from giving the DDMs a shot.

I'm in the same situation, I broke my hippo vb and was looking for something else, I went for future sonics atrio m5 with the mg7 driver, hopefully I wont be disappointed and they'll actually keep working more than a year!
