I don't have any helpful advice for your situation with the Beats, but if you decide to go in another direction I can suggest Etymotic Research IEMs...I bought a pair recently and they are much better than I expected. Also heard great things about Ultimate Ears and also Brainwavz.

Ultimate ears TripleFi 10s are very nice iem's as well. Not sure what your budget is and how deep you want to dive into quality.

LOL, if the OP liked the sound of the Beats, then he will not care for the sound of the 2 recommendations!
That said, both are great recommendations, and for a budget set of IEM's that really sound great try these: MEElectronics A151-BK. They are giant-killers at $50. Accurate, not boomy, nice soundstage.
Beats? Really?

Yeah, beware of Monster's marketing. You wont find many fans here of any of their products.

Don't forget about NuForce in ears. They are awesome and come highly rated on headfi.org. I will check into the MEElectronics A151-BK as I like that they are the same price as the NuForce that I bough. The best $50 I ever spent. I don't buy anything monster as they are just over priced.
