I want to purchase some new iems that sound similar to the HD650s. I've read reviews that say the IE8s are too bassy, and that the IE80 fix this problem. However, I would prefer bass that is similar to the H650s, so would the IE8 be even more bassy than the HD650, or would the IE80 be less or more bassy than the HD650? I realize bass response on IEMs is dependant on correct placement in the ear, so I assume many people would have different opinions if they don't fit them correctly.

Sennheiser in ears are generally way more bass heavy than their big cans including hd650, the one you want is probably ie800 instead of the ie80, unless you do this fancy tape mod thing that was all the rage - but my take is if you were gonna do that, you are better off with something BA based.
