    I'm currently looking for wired in-ear headphones. My current one can't handle extra bass sound gets noisy as soon as i increase bass in the EQ
    So i was thinking about going for Bowers & Wilkins C5 S2 in-ear headphones that seems to have good reviews, have good extra bass while keeping good sound clarity.
    I'm wondering if i shouldn't go for an amp and/or molded earplugs instead of new headphones.

    I already have very good for the price full size heaphones for audiophile listening (Sennheiser HD518) so if i had to go for new headphones it would be in-ear and wired.

    My current in-ear headphones Samsung HS330 have too much highs (can adjust with EQ) and not enough lows (can't adjust)
    HS330 Wired 32 Ohm - 20 Hz - 20 kHz

    So to sum up:
    option 1: new in-ear headphones with good bass?
    option 2: new amp with my current in-ear headphones?
    option 3: cheap molded earplugs with my current in-ear headphones?
    option 4: ??

    UPDATE:
    Got my in-ear headphones so as far i'm concerned the case is closed.

    So what did you get?
    I've been using Westone in ear run through a JDS Cmoy amplifier as my travel rig and find it very nice.
    The Cmoy bass boost actually works without bloating the bass.

    Lately I've been looking at Custom in ear options, and again thinking of Westone
    or Gorilla Ears. would be great if I could listen to Gorilla Ears somewhere to get an overall
    idea of their sound.

    All my music is on the pc in the cellar. Not sure how best to route it out to speakers on other floors.

    There is a audio equipment thread somewhere in Foo, but it's been several months back. skidder and I were both rocking these back in the 70's...not the most accurate speakers, but a lot of efficient bass for the $ and I'm all about value
