I recently was turned on to the beauty of etymotic research IEM's.  I am VERY happy with their noise isolation capabilities and the sound I have to say is spot on.  I do however tend to prefer a more "full" or warm sound.  Can anyone recommend something in the $50-125 range that would have comparable noise isolation capabilities while providing a fuller sound that the ety's?  Thanks and I appreciate everyone on these forums.

Before abandoning your HF5, is it possible that you can use some EQ on your source to add some bass in the 100-150Hz area?  Or might you be interested in adding a portable amp like the ZO bass booster amp?  You don't mention your source chain, so just a suggestion.  The HF5 is a great earphone that has deep bass capabilities if you can get it some.
