I see you listen to kpop. I can recommend the xba-40s and that would be around your price range.

 

On that note, I have my XBA-4's for sale. I can give you a good deal on them (in CAD since I'm in Canada as well!) if you are interested. Please feel free to check my feedback. 

 

 

The non-detachable cable is ruining it for me, sorry. I've been through too many earphones and IEMs that died due to the cable.

Sure, that is a good point. You just need to take care of them. I keep my XBA-4s in a pelican case and they've lasted almost a year and probably would last as long as I want them to. Before in high school where I just tossed my earbuds around I was going through a pair almost every month or two.

Hey guys, just got my SE215 and have a question. Are the tri-flanges really supposed to sound *that* bad? They sound really tinny and low-fi, for lack of a better term. The silicone and foam tips are fine though.

Sounds like you are not getting a good seal with them.  Try cutting either the stalk or the top of the mushroom bit off and try again.  Be warned though that it's a one-way procedure...

Yeah... The previous owner had already modded the tri-flanges into bi-flanges. Maybe it's just that I have excessive large canals.

I'm planning to use this for phone calls, but many have reported that the in-line mic cable is fragile. So I'm looking for a durable, readily-available replacement in-line mic cable (preferably in black to match the Shures). What do recommend? Maybe one of the Westones? Apple and Android remotes are both fine. Thanks!
