Default Earphone suggestions for lossless music?

After 3 years, my UE900 (Ultimate Ears) have broken down. Suggestions for a replacement? In the meanwhile, I'm using Apple's default EarPods. Although they sound warmer than the UE900, I miss the crisp highs and wide soundstage of the UE900.

Are there any in-ear earphones that can match UE900's quality? I love its sound signature but would like a bit more oomph in the mids.

I'm currently looking at the 1More Triple Driver earphones but I'm afraid of these not having the same finesse as the UE900:

Well, I recommend the Shure SE215 for $98.
Or, if you have more money, the 425s are more refined and have an additional driver.

Also, check out Campfire Audio.

The Nova ($499) has two balanced armature drivers (BA), meaning that they will have very good mids and highs, but the bass with not be as powerful/overwhelming as dynamic drivers.
The Orion are a little "cheaper" at $399, with a single BA driver in each earbud.

Westone makes great buds, too, with the UM Pro20 and the UM Pro30 at $199 and $269.

The Westone is more mellow in the highs than Shure and/or CA earbuds, I would even say it is "veiled". Campfire Audio makes great quality buds (I have the Vega and Andromeda). I had the Shure se535 for over 6 years, and if you like clear highs, they deliver in spades. Decent bass, but it is tight and doesn't interfere with the mids.
Also, depending on what you're playing with, YMMV a bit with the sound you're getting from your sources.

I own a Shure SE215. The sound quality is impressive, though the cord is a bit short.
