JVC Fxh30 might be a good fit? I only briefly heard them though, definitely fast.

The reviews look good. I will try them out if i can, sounds like it will nicely complement my CKR-9s .
 
Best suggestion so far THX!!!

Some I haven't personally heard but might be worth researching:
 
VSonic VSd5, if it sounds anything like the ex1000 it's modeled after might be good.
ATH-IM01, I loved the IM02 (except the fit), read this is a little less detailed though.
Meelec 151, single BA have a decent reputation seems like

  Etymotics are not available in my country unfortunately. 
 
Can you suggest any Audeos within my price range?
 
And i have tried the XBA-A2s before, Yes, you are correct, they sounded warm-ish and had a slight veil that smoothed out the micro-details.A bit too warm for my taste.


You could import them I'm sure, or find a used pair.
 
The cheaper Audeo PFE's, they are all the same driver, just different color wires, some with mic and remote, some without.  The trick is finding the grey filters (or black).  Some will come with, some without.

Sadly your suggestions will not do.

1. I dont want to go over the hassle at the customs department again.
 
 
2.The Audeo PFE's dont seem to have the detail retrieval i want. Detailed and analytical is the word........not silky smooth.

Have you looked for used ones in your country?
 
Trust me, the Audeo PFE has it.  It's not silky smooth.  I put them on when I want to hear every little thing in my music (exept deep bass, they don't have that).  Have you even heard them?

I've neither tried the etymotics before or the Audeos before as I've only seen and read them here on head fi but never seen them in person.
