Hello all.  I have been intrigued by the accuracy of the Etymotics but am curious of their signature versus other IEMs that I have, mainly the ADDIEMs.  How does the bass quantity and treble quantity compare.  I assume quality is much higher on the Etys, so I'm more concerned about sound signature.  I do find the ADDIEMs to be pretty articulate, and non-fatiguing, a bit bass lite, but an eq helps to fill them out a bit. 
 
I also have TF10s and Monster Turbines and realize the bass on these two should be way bigger in quantity, but I would like to hear what something flat will give me.

I have only heard the ADDIEMs, but from what I've read about the Etymotics, this is what to expect:
  1. LESS bass (The Etymotics are really bass light; even more than the ADDIEMs)
  2. Better treble and treble extension
  3. More details/clarity
  4. More accurate.
