My last question post kind of flopped... so let's try this again, having narrowed my choices down on my own.
I'm looking at the Shure SE215 and the Westone 1. Both look like terrific IEMs, and I can get them for about the same price.
I really need something more portable than my (freaking amazing) Ultrasone PRO 550's.
I mainly listen to rock, punk, and alternative but I also listen to essentially everything else besides classical and country. I tend to take care of my headphones, though higher durability is a plus. I'm looking for strong but not overpowering bass, good soundstage, lightweight design, and good comfort. I had to return my Monster Turbines because their metal bodies were just killing my ears.
Please help me! Thanks!
