Are you wanting them to be New or does it not matter? You will be able to get something used in your price range that would normally be in a higher price bracket for under $200 in our classifieds.

Here is a great deal on some Sony XBA-40 IEMs. 4 Balanced Armatures in each ear for $149 here in our classifieds. They're selling for $239 on Amazon at the moment. They look to be in good condition and come with the box and some extra tips as well. Check them out?

monster gratitude is an awesome iem at a price of 60 dollars. To me the best bang for the buck iem right now.

 

Vsonic GR07 (normal or bass edition) are also great but their isloation is not the strongest. Good enough to me for commuting but be aware of that. They also seem to have been out of stock lately, not sure why. Maybe try after chinese new year or look for one on sale from the forums

 

Sony XBA 3 is also another great iem. Comes with mic or without mic, and you can find them around 120-150 i believe.

 

Those are a few that pop in my head. There are definitely others to look into though.

There are a pair of VSonic GR07 MKII in the FS Forums right now for $120 "Like New".

Thanks for the feedback guys.. Actually I can't buy from the forums coz I live in Hong Kong.. I'm looking for something neutral but a little bit bassy.. I usually listened to rock, alternative and some rap rock themes..

Any inputs about the tf10s, shure se215 SE? I prefer detachable cables more.. A little bit basshead and reAlly wants good isolation..

Since you are from Hong Kong, why don't you give the local 2nd hand forums a try? The prices are quite attractive, since there are a lot of buyers these days.

I have the Shure SE215 and really like them. From my experience they are a good bang for your buck. I recommended them to a friend and he was impressed for the price range.
