As stated in the title, looking for a new set of high end iem`s to replace my phonak pfe 232`s (isolation was not sufficient for my lifestyle, my source didn`t play well with them). I am looking for iems that have good isolation and clarity whilst maintaining a relatively minimal build size as I have been spoiled by my klipsch x10`s. Looking at etymotic er 4pt`s or Senheisser ie8`s, what other options are available? thanks

I'm very pleased with my T-15's (ACS). They are supposed to be Etymotics with a bit more warmth. The housings are tiny. Isolation is superb with the custom tips. A bit too good for public use. The IE8's are my choice for commuting. Could not be a more different sound sig though.

From the original criteria I don't really understand why the Senns are in the frame TBH. BTW. hifiheadphones.co.uk let you return IEM's if they don't suit. They also give good advice if you call them.
