I’m in the market for some IEM’s, and my budget is up to $300.
I play drums and have my own recording studio. I’m currently using a pair of Milian Acoustics SV for monitoring while drumming. They have some cheap Sony drivers and sound pretty bad, but they’re great for sound isolation. I will mainly be using the IEM’s for monitoring, and possibly some mixing. I know that it’s not recommended to mix with headphones. I have mixing monitors, but would like a pair of IEM’s that would be close to reference. It's not much to ask , considering what I'm currently using. I have to constantly switch headphones, to hear what is actually going on. I will also be using them to play some live shows. So they need to be both comfortable, and durable.
Here’s a short list of IEM’s I’m considering, in no particular order.

Any opinions and suggestions are appreciated, thanks
