My System Specs

Default

For rock IEM's I personally prefer Etymotic's house sound. Clean, punchy bass with an excellent mid range and treble. Mid and treble can be a little in your face, so soundstage is quite tight but imaging is excellent. The "kids" version or MC5 should both be in your price range.

Some people find them to be a tad cold and lifeless with a bit of harshness, but I'd say they're the closest things to Grado's in an IEM. Do note that they isolate completely and might feel like ear rape to some people.
