Default Fuuuuuuuuuuu!! My cats just ate my etymotic headphones!

Seriously, they are destroyed. I think they even ate the triple-flange ear tips lol!

Now i need some new IEMs.

Can anyone advise what I should try next? This was my second pair of Etymotic er6's, I loved them but i have always struggled to get a really secure fit in the ear. I used bi and triple flange tips as well as the foam. They seem to just eventually slip out after awhile. It's as if my ears lack an anatomical part to keep the heads in place

Anyway, I'm feeling adventurous. Rather than buying the same IEM's again I think I might try a different brand. Any suggestions?

These are for a Rockboxed Fuze and my musical tastes lie in various genres, from metal to techno to underground rap, dance etc.
I do like bass and recall dfkt saying the hippos are a good brand worth trying.
My budget is $150AUD and less.

Cheers guys.
