Default IEM Recommendations

Hi,

As the title says I am looking for some IEM recommendations, I've had a look at the sticky threads and I am still a little unsure. I was previously using SENNHEISER Premium CX870 until they broke. Anyway here is basically what I am looking for, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Price Range: Up to $250
Type/Design: IEM
Closed Style: Closed Style
Preferable SQ or Sound Signature: Balanced highs & lows with quality bass.
Media: Pretty much only use it to listen to music on my Cowon J3 so I really need something that will do the J3 justice.

Cheers
Hynesy

Define balanced bass. Do you mean you're looking for something neutral and/or linear? Something a bit more loudness contour shaped? And did you like the warm/bassy sennheiser sound, or do you want something different?

Seriously looking at the DBA-02, heard some really good things, and read some glowing reviews.

I'll have a look, but I haven't seen them in anywhere here in Australia.

I do like the warm/bassy sound of the sennheiser, but I've had a few problems with build quality from my previous couple sets of IEM's from them.
