I listen to a lot of rap and hip hop music. Bass is very important to me. I previously owned the V-Moda Vibe ( They broke a couple of days ago and I've been looking for a new pair ever since. I came across many earbuds, but I can't make a decision. I need some input. I am looking for good sound isolation, HEAVT bass, and clarity. I've been considering yhaKlipsch Image S4 (

I've got some AKG 324's and if they are excellent in any area it's bass. I'm not sure if they are current any more and some of the models have just gotten average scores on reviews. I'd definitely vouch for the 324's though.

How much are you looking to spend? As this will help me narrow down the suggestions I can give you.

If you are looking for isolation, then "earbuds" are not what you are looking for. You will need "In-Ear-Headphones" also know as canalphones, IEM's etc. Earbuds do not go all they way in your ear-canal and therefore do not have a lot of isolation. If you are looking for clarification of the differences and some suggestions on what to buy, check out GL, and happing headphone hunting.
