If you mean IEMs (which the SE425s is)

Around $400 Range,

Expand the budget to around $458 and you got get an Ortofon e-Q7 at Jaben, These are BA but has Dynamic sounding Bass and they are very very fast and accurate it seems not to miss a single beat.

Around within $400 will be the Turbines, CK10 (also at Jaben.. Sad to say)

Other than that actually, just go stereo and state your budget. They will let you audition one, Afterall if the product is there it will be there. Best to do an actual ground survey yourself =D

Ultimate Ears Triple-fi 10vi? I'm using that. It comes with Mic. I think there may be a few people selling in Marketplace. Can check out first. Probably around $400+.

Not exactly fair since in that thread there is only one single person's view on um2. um2 might not as good as shure at the trebles, but the mid and bass is definitely much better.

Good recommendation but off budget.

CK10 would be my pick if its for IEM.
Shure SRH840 for Headphone in that range.

Not yet played with Westones 2 so cannot comment.

Ever tried Klipsch Image X10i before? Retail in singapore is $569. But really good comfort and sound. Clarity is superb! I'm currently using Image S4i ($169) but saving up for X10i..
Saw them having try out booths for their in-ears and they have promoters there to clean the earbuds and let you try out. great service i must say.
