Twister 6 posted a review of the custom Weston ES80 8BA driver IEM over on Head-Fi. From the review it sounds like Westone is moving away from laid back sound signature to a more audiophile neutral.
George Dobrescu posted an extensive review of the DK-3001 over on Head-Fi. From the review it sounds like a great 3BA/1dynamic driver IEM. Priced around $500, it is middle of the road for a quad-driver IEM.
Pros – Relaxed Signature, Smooth Sound, Strong Bass, Large Soundstage, Good Instrument Separation, Good Comfort, Large Number of Accessories Included, Useful Carrying Case, Great Value, Musical, Romantic, Natural
Cons – A tad too polite for metal music, The sound Might be too relaxed for some.

Pros – Stunningly balanced, Exceptionally linear bass and midrange, Very detailed, Great soundstage depth and imaging, Perfect comfort
Cons – May be a bit neutral and polite for some, Thin, tangle-prone cable, Loose, keyed MMCX connectors, Sub-bass extension isn’t as exceptional as the rest of the sound

Lieven posted a review of the newish ER4-XR and SR IEM over on Headfonia. They have a bit of a bass boost from the original ER4-S. Read the review of the for your by clicking the link below. Personally, I’m sticking with my 2003 ER4-S and if I need more bass I’ll EQ it. Interestingly, the original S and P models are going for about the same price as the XR and ST models.
B9Scrambler posted on Head-Fi a review of the updated IEM Havi B3 Pro called the Pro II. The Pro II has a bit more bass than the originals but from the review it sounds like the change didn’t overpower the positives of the original. However, if you are looking for a neutralish treble forward IEM the Pro is likely your choice.
Pros – Punchy low end – Excellent clarity and detail – Immersive soundstage
Cons – At their best when amped
