    Why don't you head down to Jaben at Adelphi and let the boss Wilson recommend you some earphones according to your preference. Not too sure about wireless headphone, but for earphone you can try these: Superfi3, UM1, Mylarone X3i or XBi, Beyer DTX50 etc etc... and many more. The best earphone largely depends on your ears, so go audition them.

    I used to have UM2s, and if the UM1s sound anything like it, I'd take it over the SF3. Meh, personal preference for Westone's sound signature.

    I have the Super.fi 3 by the way. Well okay I don't, my brother does and I use it on occasion. My UM2s were sold to some guy in Chicago and I can't wait to buy it back =\

    I have a pair of UM1s. Their sound signature is very neutral, and very natural sounding. Not too much treble or bass. I use my UM1s for stage monitoring, and for personal music on my iPod.

    Thinking of upgrading to a pair of custom mould IEMs though..
