Hey guys sorry for the noob question, I haven't been participated here since I was trying to decide on a headphone/amp combo way back. I'm looking for some in ears around the $50 range and I really can't decide. I was thinking of jumping on the Xiaomi Piston/Zero Audio Tenore/Basso train but other in ears have caught my attention, especially the TTPOD T1-E. I'm looking for something fairly balanced sounding/a bit more to the bassy side but at the top of my list along with those things are comfort (I haven't been able to find a comfy pair of in ears which has made me stay away from them) and isolation. I need something good at isolating for the bus which is loud and annoying but something where people can't hear what I'm listening to. I was originally thinking of going for something like the Shure SE215 or the Hifiman RE-400 but it seems there are good options at half the price, even the Vsonic VSD3S has a removable cable at half the price.
I've just been doing a ton of reading and it seems like it's never going to end without asking.
