I recently saw this link and thought it might help you: http://www.head-fi.org/t/554541/monster-turbine-v-shure-se-215
I know you want to make the 'right' decision and the most of your money but you can make yourself nuts fretting and over-thinking a decision.
I read through that entire thread
The responses are really quite mixed. Some swear by the Shures while others swear by the Turbines.
But from what I've been reading in many reviews, it seems the Turbines are more prone to breakage than the Shures. In which case, I'll go with the SE215s. Can I get any support for this? Because I'm honestly still somewhat unsure.
