    Just bought a Cozoy Astrapi, to use with my S5 and T10i's. I'll just use it at the house, as I'm not a fan of bulk or extra cables while walking around. We'll see how it pairs.

    It's a great little dac/amp, we're touring Astrapi around Australia atm. It's so small, honestly smaller than pictures make you belive.

    Sounds good too.

    Zero Audio Carbo Basso - good bass, warm and fun . Got them yesterday morning and been listening to them since. The bass is punchy and it responds well to the Eq adjustments.

    Ok, the bassiest in-ears ever are (were?) the Ultimate Ears Super fi5 EB's, now long discontinued. They have basssssss and everything else is kinda thin. I still have mine, but I confess I rarely use them because even for a basshead they are a bit much.

    I now have used both the Pioneer SE-CX8 and CX9. I confess that my ears may be less discerning than some, but I find their sounds to be all but indistinguishable. Therefore, I can recommend that bassheads pick up a pair of CX8's at their current $79 price on Amazon or NewEgg. There is nothing em else quite like them except for perhaps Skullcandy Crushers, which also are fun.

    No love here for the Shure SE215? It's got both bass quantity and articulation/definition.

    SE215 is good and entry for over-the-ear IEM
     
    My gf liked that but asked her to push her budget abit for JVC HA-FX650
     
    She is a bassist btw =)

    I believe it's still YMMV. No best for everyone.[​IMG]

    Had the shure se215s

    Sub bass was weak, overall sound was muddy and had a dull signature. Only thing they had going was their sound isolation

    Not what I find. In fact find it very clean sounding, the bass and sub-bass is great both as to amount and articulation; it's not bloomy nor muddy, but very defined. Plus it's mid-bass is amazing, and doesn't intrude into the mids. It's mids/voices are great, and it's treble I find just right, and not sibilant at all like other IEMs. I think this lack of emphasis on sibilants is why many find it "lacking sparkle"; but not my ears. In fact I long for this because it doesn't fatigue my ears even a bit. If I'm to describe its sound in one word, I'll use "live", or "realistic". This has the Harman curve frequency response and I think the Harman curve is right in the money when it comes to mimicking real, live music.

    Yet, there's the "Special Edition", which has more sub-bass but also more treble making it more sibilant. I find the regular SE215 cleaner and having more separation between instruments though, and very good soundstage; there's distinctness between sounds and instruments. Again, "live" and "natural" sounding.
