I found since I listen to music that requires bass,After searching the forum, I Finally narrowed it down to

Westone UM2
Shure E5C

Since I listen to Acoustic Music also, I need clarity, but not too bright, I need some input from users who own both or one of these these IEM's?

I need to look at Impediance also...

I need them to give great sound to Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven and The Punchyness of Metallica

P.S I managed to find Some Yellow Sennheisers...?

I think you might like the Ultimate Ears Super-Fi 5pro. Punchy bass, smooth highs. Won't get harsh on hard rock, plenty of punch.

I've looked at the Shure E4s, but... I read that it should be amped

I read on Headroom that they Have Punchy Bass.
How do they compare to the ER-4P?

PS. The Yellow headphones are... I think HD414's, I've never seen them before

Good advice, and much cheaper too.

What rationale was provided for amping the E4C? I trust it wasn't volume. I lowered the gain on all of my iPOD music (MP3Gain=85!) to eliminate EQ clipping and, still, I have more than enough volume. They are incredibly efficient canalphones. I have not found one album yet that requires me to push the iPOD's volume bar to maximum position.

How Big are the Super.Fi.Pro 5?
In terms of length on the earpiece?
And how wide?
