So my Westone 3's finally gave out. They were really impressive but it's time for a new pair.
I take the bus on a daily basis so sound-isolation is important.
Also something with at least as much bass as the W3's.
I would like a removable cable but it's not mandatory.
I'm not willing to go over $300 this time.

They're not out yet. You'll be able to find them on sites like Amazon later this week. Another option would be Shure's SE425; easily one of the most balanced IEMs out there, and Shure is known for very good sound isolation. They will run you about $250 though, $50 more than the T10i. The T10i is also much more bass heavy if that helps with your decision.

Yeah, Shures are generally not as punchy as their counterparts. I love them simply because I prefer having the bass underscore good mids, not dominate them. The T10i is definitely the way to go if you want heavier bass.

I checked their Facebook page which led me to their Twitter page and they said "Early November" :/. https://twitter.com/RHA/status/524841316656889856
I guess I'll try to wait but it'll be though.
