Recommend Good Bass with treble IEMs

Looking for a punchy bass IEM with good emphasis on treble.
Im not very conversant with describing sound but so far the ones that i have tried and loved include the below in priority

The good
1) Westone 3 - very exciting sound but too exp.
2) Audio Technica CKS 90 - Very good with treble
3) Denon AH-C710 - very good bass and treble, interesting sound but bulky in size


The ones that didnt offer something i was looking for.
Shure SE215 - balanced but unexciting for the price
Sony XBA-2 - not exciting and the higher end of XBA range is too exp
Soul by Ludacris SL99 - Too bassy with no emphasis on treble
Beyerdynamic DTX 101 - too mild
Klipsch X10 - ok but not exciting, doesnt like the build


Looking to try these models (anything below that i should give a miss?)
Yamaha EPH-100
JVC FX500, FX700
Panasonic HJE900
Ultimate Ears Range

My question is, based on my preference for W3, CKS 90 and ACH 710, can someone recommend me a few models that i should try out before making my final decision?

Thanks in advance

for 100+ you can try Fischer Audio Consonance. For 200+ there is Atrios MG7. I think those will suit your preferences.

Based on your description and seeing the word 'exciting' repeated so many times, I suggest you try Fischer Audio. Those are really 'exciting' earphones... almost too exciting for me.

Other than Fischer Audio Consonance, can also try out the Beyerdynamic DTX101iE.

Not sure if you will find the eph-100 too bassy or not but you can try it at digi lifestyle for 178

have not heard the consonance before. tot of the dtx101 but TS already said it's too mild. xba-1 i think can forget it. sounds sterile. i'm pretty sure it will sound quite bass-less to him

somehow, reading your description, it seems like you're looking for an earphone which basically has sparkly, kinda' sharp highs, and decent bass, and... you don't care much about mids.
You might wanna give the Denon AH-C710 another try, and see if you can get used to the large housing, since these fit your sound preferences and your budget. IMO, they arn't uncomfy, just..... kinda' big.
