I have just lost my Shure 215s I loved them , very comfotable. I live in London so really enjoyed the isolation. I didnt have to listen to the "nutters" on the bus anymore! I also loved the bass, althouhg I wouldnt want anymore bass. Now im looking to replace them. I dont know whether to go for the Sony XBA-3ip for around £105 or the shure 315s for around £150 (my budget) or just stick to what I knwo and loved the 215s although I could be missing out on what I dont know. Many people seem to like the Sonys, not as much isolation though. What are your thoughts? any other recommendations?
Shure 215, 315 or Sony XBA-3iP

So as long as the Sonys have enough Bass, which I hear they do, I certainly dont want a pair lacking in bass, but do not need to be as bass heavy as the shures (although I did like the bass on those, I mostly listen to electronic music I guess). If the Sonys have a more defined sound then maybe im leaning towards those. I guess I just dont want to be disapointed compared with my 215s
