Thermaltake Isirus. They look like a rebadged Audio-Technica CKM99, and they sound like them too. http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-HT-ISU005EBBL-eSports-Headset-Diamond/dp/B004IZN3SY/ref=pd_bxgy_pc_img_z

thanks for suggestion, do they a good noise isolation?

i will use them at LANs where there are too much noises( people shouting,whining,crying)

i was also wondering why no one suggests any steelseries or razer in ears, are they inferior? they have good reviews.

Used the PC300s(built in mic) for years for competitive CS, never had a problem with them.

Yamaha EPH100s(no mic) had decent soundstage for CS and the different treble they have helped with footsteps. 

 

Both of them are far better than the siberia inears/razer morays/roccat gaming IEMs.

yeh good noise isolation, you should look into getting them if possible, you can probably get them for a lot less.

Oh okay, well out of the common 3, steelseries siberia in ears, razer moray and the roccat vire, the siberias in-ears were the best.

 

Although more and more companies have released more gaming IEMs such as thermaltake, turtle beach, astrogaming etc. I can't comment on them though. 

 

Just get them imported if you're able to.

importing them will cost me too much, and siberia in ears are not available anymore. i have short listed a few.

Nuforce NE-6M

JVC HA-FX34 “Marshmallows”

MEElectronics M6

Soundmagic PL21 / M21

MEElectronics M11

Sorry, can't help you with any of those, I think the cheapest earphones I've bought were the AT CKM500 for $55, although they sound fairly constricted as the soundstage is fairly small. 

 

I think you should look for something with good soundstage if you plan on playing CS. The one's I mentioned are fairly good for CS, else you should stick to full sized headphones if your budget is that tight.

Razer has a terrible value and i hear Steelseries Siberia is quite good but out of your price range. And I would Agree with Ich1ban and say that you should stick to full size if soundstage and directionality is your concern. but if you are bent on iems, the isirus has amazing isolation.

People still play 1.6? That reminds me, I should get CS:GO... For In-Ears, I would get something with good presentation and fairly bass light. For competitive use, I would think you need less bass and detailed mids and treble for listening to footsteps.

Aurisonics ASG-1 works really well for me with very 3-Dimensional sound stage. I play CS:S and my KPD jumps good 20-30% when I am on ASG-1 from any other source (speakers, S500, S4i etc)

i have steelseries 5hv2 USB, and they work quite well for cs 1.6 but problem comes at LAN evens, there are too much noises, i cannot hear footsteps, as 5hv2 doesnt isolate well. Thats why i want to buy IEMs. Noise isolation is the reason for buying IEM. Secondly they should have less bass and more treble.
 I am thinking about one of these

JVC HA-FX34 “Marshmallows”

Philips SHE3590BK

Soundmagic PL21 / M21

Thermaltake Isurus

Razer Moray

Steelseries Siberia in ear
