Default Small IEM with big bass?

Hello all,

I recently had the chance to use a friend's Etymotic ER-4P and while the sound was definitely not up my alley, their small and comfy form factor and their extreme isolation very much was!!

I am not really a basshead but I do like a nice, big meaty bass that has that physical sensation to it. This is how I know that I'm not in the market for Etymotic; however, I am in the market for small, tiny IEMs like the Etys but with decent bass. What does decent mean? The Phonaks are not all that bad, although I do find them slightly bass-shy. Sennheiser IE-8 on the other hand might have a little too much bass, but I'd rather have too much than too little.

So anyway, I looked at the Klipsch x10 as a possible alternative; however, they are extremely expensive, way over my approx 150 $ budget.

Are there any other good alternatives? How are the q-JAYS in terms of bass? Can the Hippo Shrooms compare to any of these IEMs? Any other ideas?
