XB90EX is bass oriented, Fidelio S2 is relatively balanced.

Of the two, the S2 is the better overall performer. Although the semi open design of the S2 means it won't isolate as well.

Well, It's all personal preference. If Bass is what you need, Sony is the answer and S2 is a balanced, so 2 different sound sigs....you need to figure out your budget IEMs,Pros and cons etc.....:wink:

 

If you are bass-head, into EDM,Trance,Electronic,Dub-step XB90EX fills the slot other than that S2 is your choice, of these 2.

i know, its a problem.  my housemates have to pry them off me to talk with me at the dinner table. they are definitely addictive.  well poor tracks sound poor but most tracks sound glorious  listening to old stuff over again to hear new musical landscapes!

M200 for sure (assuming you can get a good fit and seal).

 

DN1000 I have heard lots of good things about, so they would probably be a safe bet.

 

I know you said "above $150", but the VSD1LE's are pretty darned good for approx $70 (similar signature to the M200's). And the VSD1's or VSD1S's for $45 are very good as well.

The new Xiaomi Pistons, upgraded version:

http://www.ibuygou.com/p-original_xiaomi_piston_earphone_updated_version_brown-5708-usd.html

 

These have a Beryllium Diaphragm, which is unheard of for a $20 IEM. If you don't know, large Beryllium Diaphragms used in compression drivers usually cost around $2,000+, and TAD uses them in their highest end speaker.

I have them on the way. The original version was supposedly very good.

 

Xiaomi is the biggest smartphone maker in China. So big, that one of the top guys for Android (Hugo Barra) left Google to run Xiaomi.

 

Xiaomi is also responsible for MIUI, a very popular Android ROM for smartphones.
