Help Good upgrade for CX300s (up to £50)?

Hi all

I'm thinking about upgrading my CX300s to something a bit better. The market seems to have quite a lot of high quality inexpensive IEMs at the moment so I'd like to capitalise on that.

I've narrowed down my search to these three:

RHA MA-350 (£30)
SoundMAGIC E10 (£35)
Klipsch S4/S5 (~£50)

My instinct is to go with one of the first two, because there seem to be very mixed reviews of the Klipsch efforts.

I'll be powering them primarily from my Sansa Fuze (running Rockbox), although I'll occasionally plug them into my phone (Galaxy S2) -- so some kind of remote control might be useful, which I know the M variant of the E10s has (it's not a dealbreaker though -- sound quality is the most important thing by far). I listen to a lot of instrumental (post-rock, classical) music as well as electronica. The main characteristics I like in cans are good bass, plenty of detail and expansive imaging (I've always felt the CX300s weren't great on the latter point). Primary use is while walking.

I can't find a great deal of information about the RHAs, and no comparisons between them and the E10s. They seem a bit better features-wise with the nontangle, braided cable, but they're also a Y cable which I'm not a huge fan of. They're based not far from where I live so it's nice to support a local business, assuming they are good 'phones of course.

Anyone have experience of these 'phones who can provide a recommendation?
