Lost my SE215, bought Creative Aurvana In-Ear 3, but found the SE215s... Do I return the In-Ear 3?

I am in Afghanistan and lost my Shure SE215 IEMs last week.  I was wanting to try a BA driver anyways, so I bought the Creative Aurvana In-Ear 3.  I have not tried the Creative IEMs yet, and yesterday I found the SE215s.  I mostly use the IEMs at the gym and listen to Dubstep, Hip-Hop, Metal and anything else that will get my pumped up.  I have read reviews about the In-Ear 3's which say that they are better than the SE215s, but have less bass (which is important for DubStep). 

 

My question is this:  Do I return the In-Ear 3's, or keep and use instead of the SE215s?

 

Has anyone tried both?  Thoughts? 

 

Thanks much!

Keep both, they do complement each other well...

I think if you return Aurvana then you can save for even better upgrade later which you may feel after little long use.

I have both and like both! The IE3 do have less bass than the 215, but it's a fairly smooth and likable signature, 

I think they are pretty hard to dislike. 

 

If you are looking for very bassy IEMs that are good for getting pumped for your workout I would also recommend the

215LE (tuned for more bass) or the Atrio X. I use the Atrio X as gym phones and they have a slightly muddy but very warm and bassy signature which i find especially good for metal! 

 

I have also run in my IE3's a few times and find them solid and likable, so I guess it just depends how much bass you really need!
