Please help a newbie decide on a pair of headphones under $100 on Amazon! All help will be very much appreciated, thank you.

Lately my pair of stock apple EarPods from my iPhone 5 broke :D!! Finally after 1 year I can get a new pair of earbuds. Now my parents are letting me spend <$100 on a new pair. 

I know that beats earbuds are crap. And i did some research and found these headphones on amazon, could you help me decide which to get? Or suggest a new pair! I will buy a pair at latest on 2/22. I Listen to all kinds of music, classical mostly piano, pop, rap, rock, electronic(avicii, skrillex etc). I want bass but not huge,( I have a pair of beats pro I got for a gift, and I absolutely detest them, p.s I sold them already). Also i want highs and kids clearly heard. Here are some of the headphones I found on amazon, and I don't care for remotes for iPhone (p.s I can only buy on amazon, I got 2 $50 gift cards):

LMAO I usually DON'T want to listen to kids, so shrieky. :rolleyes:

 

I can attest to the awesomeness that is the Shure SE215, I'd pull the trigger again in a heartbeat.

I haven't listened to them, I haven't heard a single Sony headphone I like.

I'd highly recommend the Shures, while I have not heard the 215's, I currently use the SE 535, the sound isolation and sound is phenomenal (just ordered the JH Roxanne's, soooo excited to hear if there will be a huge sound difference or not) . It is my understanding that the 215's use the same shape/design of the 535's, and shure always puts out phenomenal products, I'd give my nod to them! You get a lot of bang for your buck!

Also, while I know most people here hate Bose, I have a pair of Sie 2's for the gym that are ultra comfortable for extended use, never fall out, and have great sound for the money that I would look into as well if I were you

I would vote for the Shure. And throw in the Hifiman RE400....

Right now it seems that the sures take the lead, but the Sony headphone for $150 has 4 balanced armature drivers in each ear? I think the sures only have 1 driver in each ear. Are 4 drivers are supposed to be better than 1?  Or are the drivers in the sony just crap? I looked at other headphones with 4 drivers and they all cost 400$+ The sony ones only cost 150$ with original price of $350, by the way they are called the sony xba 4ip and has a remote for iPhone which is lacking in the shures.
