So I have owned a couple of IEMs based on reviews from this site and others and have been pretty happy. I am currently using V-Sonic GR99 which I bought based on recommendations from here for good IEMs for around $25, and for what they are they are damn impressive. I also had a pair of the original Phonak Audeo PFE back in 2009 and those were quite nice as well, however they were ~$120 then and now even the PFE 111 which comes with less than they did in 2009 cost $179 now so I don't think those will be for me. At this point I don't care about brand, there are many great ones I have seen just reading here for 10 minutes that I have never heard of, I just want something good that has good reviews and following here for <=$150, preferably under $100 but from looking $150 does get you a fair amount more. Thanks in advance.
Looking for IEM <=$150
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
lend me ur ears has vsonic GR07 and GR07 Bass Edition on sale for about 130 USD. I'd highly recommend you consider those.
Asides from that, Monster Gratitude is a great buy at 60 dollars.
Philips Fidelio S2 is also a great choice.
Those are some i personally like to recommend.
Also, Aurisonics, a company ive personally come to love and trust, has a kickstarter right now for their new iem that's being released. It would be a bit of a leap of faith to buy these since no one has really heard them. But im pretty confident that it'll be a winner. You can get it for 150 right now during the kickstarter, but it'll be 250 once its released. Id really consider it
I'll look at them, the GR07s have gotten great reviews from what I have seen, never heard anything bad about them. I will say, there's 2 companies I refuse to buy from, Beats or Monster, just personal issues with their business practices etc.
I will add these will be powered by an LG G2.

If you want to save money, go for Philips SHE3580/90 with double flange Meelectronics tips.
For the whole 150$, you can have FAD Heaven IV - http://kakaku.com/item/K0000360428/
It's the cheapest one, anywhere else they are 220-250$.
Just click on the BuySmartJapan banner at the bottom - everything will be in English from this point.
If I were looking between the VSonic GR07 and T-Peos H-100 what do you guys think? The H-100 has great reviews and has been compared to the Phonak Audeo PFE which I did like quite a bit, but I also like the GR99 quite a bit and can only wonder how nice the GR07 must be if the GR99s are this good for their price.
