SE530 or UE TripleFi10Pro or UE SuperFi 5Pro

After some contemplation with the Atrio M5 I've decided to up my budget to these three headphones, and hence I would appreciate some advice from those in the know.

To decide which of these three to buy I am setting down the following criteria.
Please do not suggest any other canalphones as I live in Australia and my range with high end canalphones are limited to these only. Thank you.

1. Full sized headphones are just too uncomfortable for me and I have completely given up on them, therefore, the chosen canalphone would need to be suitable for both portable use (with my Sansa Clip) as well as for use at home (I have an Audinst HUD-MX1 USB DAC/Amp which I use).

2. They would need to be a good all-rounder, I listen to rap, hip-hop, 80's pop style of music as well as classical music.
I am not a basshead, but a complete lack of bass leaves much to be desired. To put it in perspective I am used to headphones such as the Shure SRH440 and the Sennheiser HD600, both of which I never found lacking in bass but too darn uncomfortable to wear. I am fond of clarity but only if it does not make the overall sound to be dull, boring and without emotion.

3. Durability. They would need to be very durable for a canalphone with wires that won't stuff up after only 6 months of daily usage.

4. Comfortability. Since I listen to music a lot, maybe 5 hours a day, they would need to be very comfortable. My ear-canals are about medium sized and I normally use medium sized tips on other canalphones if that means anything here.

I am sorry that I had to write so much but I would really like some clarification on these issues as I am quite torn between them all. Thank you very much for reading. :thumbsup:

Out of the three the SE530 would be most fitting for what you list.
