Westone is an established company that gets good reviews overall. Pick the ones that work for your budget and I'm sure you'll be happy with the purchase. The ear-impressions are critical though. Make sure you find an audiologist that has experience fitting for IEMs (not just hearing aids and ear protection...) because if the fit is not right, the unit can't perform right and frequency response will be all over the place.
so you guys just made me realize.. there would be flatter response in ears which would be better for mixing, and then more "hyped" ones for casual listening.
so lets eliminate the flatter ones, i wont be mixing on them, i'll be checking/listening on them.
there are some great audiologists in my city i'm sure LOL.
i'm pretty much set on westones, i'm going to look into the ES5's (thats the highest end elite model which was what i was talking about).
