Ah thanks for all the responses!

I dont mind spending some more money to get a decent product.

I listen to a bit of everything sans country/classical. I dont need huge bass but something that can handle everything fairly well would be ideal.

I've been looking @ the Yamaha EPH100 and the Triple.Fi10s.

Trying to navigate through all the information on head-fi is quite intimidating and a challenge!

I would pass on the triplefi’s and I don’t know anything about the yamaha’s but I like the suggestion made by IDvsEGO in post #16, which would give you the opportunity have a few different sound signatures and some back up

The EPH100 is a microdriver IEM. I have two microdriver IEMs, the JVC HAFXC51 and the HA-FXC80. The idea behind a microdriver IEM is that the driver is actually in the ear canal, so the treble is better since treble works better when it goes directly down the ear canal and isn't reflected off the wall of it. These microdriver IEMs have a very open sound. The problem with the driver in the ear canal is that the driver enclosure is hard, which may lead to comfort and fit issues. If you want to experiment with a microdriver IEM, then get the JVC HAFXC80, which is only $35 on Amazon. Of all those pushing the $150 EPH100, I haven't read one post where someone said they have both the HAFXC80 and the EPH100 and compared the two.
