Shure SE215 (New Version) vs Etymotic HF5

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

So I am looking for a good sounding headphone in the $100 range. I saw that there is a new SE215 (blue edition) which seems to be a slight improvement over the current SE215 modles. The Etymotic HF5 also caught my eye as many people on these forums were recommending it and it is also currently $97 on Amazon) People have said that the HF5 is lacking in bass but bass is not the most important feature for me. So which one is better? (Any other suggestions would be great) 

 

P.S In case anyone says the X10 - I was thinking of getting the Klipsch X10 as it is $87 on Amazon and I have the S4i but it doesn't ship to my country.

Other sound preferences? How do you like your mids, treble, etc? If isolation isn't the absolute priority and comfort is a must, would cross the HF5s out. Otherwise...
