Depending on your price range, I'd recommend the Westone UM2, Livewires, or the Super.fi 5 Pro. refer to ClieOS's post lots of people enjoy that "sterile" (some describe it as lack of coloring or neutral) sound instead of the colored sound of other IEM's. although I like my music a little more lively and bassy, technically to get the "perfect" headphone at least technology wise would be to create an absolute perfect replica of the audio without any coloring.
