x2 for um2. Pretty underrated these days but still a very solid contender in that price range. I would also like to reccomend the gr07 if you wish to save a few pounds. Both are definite step up from 115.

The SE215 has good bass and mids, lacking a bit in the highs though. It does seem to scale well in the genres you listen to though...

I'm starting to like the look of the ie8's now, how bad is the isolation in comparison to the shures?

Now I'm just going on a)forum gospel and b)experience with the ie7's but the shure's should have better isolation.

Depends on what you're using them for. When/where/how often will you be listening to your headphones.

They will be used on the train almost everyday, occasionally on planes (6 times a year +) and then at home

Should be fine, the isolation wasn't that bad for me.

Well, it's not that the IE8's isolation is bad, but it's just that shures are really good. Some people tend to over-exaggerate the IE8's isolation, but it's actually not too bad and made in a way that is comfortable.

+1, I think misinformation gets over-exaggerated and then those who never had the IE8 exaggerate that information and spread it around.
