    ^^^ nice pic but not in the spirit of hukd, welcome, may your reign be a long and happy one.

    for anyone else, please answer because I could do with this info also, cheers

    You need to be more specific mate. What kind of music do you like? Are you a bass head?

    There are a few choices in this price range but they all differ to what you are looking for in an IEM.

    dont want to hijack this thread but I will hehehe, my son listens to bassy (?) music so would defo need to be able to cope with that.

    And what would be your budget?

    probably same as op, 40-45

    There are quite a few out there even below that price range for bass heads!

    For example:
    Meelec M9 - £19.99 on AMP3

    I used these now and then the Radiopaq Jazz:
    amazon.co.uk/dp/…236?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&tag=****&linkCode=asn&creative=22206&creativeASIN=B0022NHHZY

    These are my headphones to listening to fun music, packs tight and clear bass and overall sounds very good nearly on par with my Senn IE7's!

    Sound (7.25/10) – Sound is warm and dynamic. Definitely cannot be called analytical, but can be more fun than the proverbial barrel of monkeys. Soundstage is just a bit wider than average but instrumental separation is quite good. The high end boasts good extension and plenty of detail for a budget-oriented dynamic IEM but has some peaks. The mids also boast good detail and clarity but are somewhat recessed compared to the bass and treble. They need a very good seal for the optimal bass experience, but can be incredibly deep and smooth. Bass often feels layered over the mids rather than integrated, yielding a pretty unique sound signature. The treble can be slightly hot-tempered on some tracks but remains sibilance-free nevertheless.

    Amplification – not required to enjoy the smooth, easy-going sound. However, a good neutral amp will bring out more detail and make the Jazz more accurate and balanced all-around performers.

    Value (8.5/10) – The Jazz is a very interesting earphone at its price point. It provides a big, powerful, smooth, and warm sound that keeps it true to its name, and does all this at a bargain-basement price. Should be especially high on the short-list for European Head-Fiers who may have an easier time acquiring one of these than, say, a Nuforce or Maximo product. Price fluctuates wildly, so adjust accordingly. At the lowest-to-date £27 price, these are nothing short of unbeatable.

    Others to consider:

    Klipsch S4
    Hippo VB
    Denon C551
    Fischer Audio Eterna v1

    I'm serious though... There are hundreds of "Top 10 __________________" 's over the Internet made/written by professionals...

    Ultimate Ears MetroFi 170vi is awesome if they could fit you, at halve your budget.

    I don't care about 'professionals' views on them though, that's why I came here instead. I've found the HotUKDeals members to be extremely helpful in the past, and was hoping for the trend to continue.
