Budget: Up to $150 but I'd really like it if I don't go up this far.

Requirement for Isolation: It would be a plus to have a isolation.
Preferred Type of Headphones: In the market for IEMs
Preferred Tonal Balance: It really varies on the music so I guess it doesn't matter to me.
Past Headphones: I have the Sennheiser 380HDs right now and they're fantastic.
Preferred Music: I do not have a problem with any music.
Right now, I have 4 choices of IEMs I'm thinking about purchasing. the Shure SE215 vs. Vsonic GR07 vs. Etymotic Research HF5 vs. the HiFiMAN RE400.
I don't have a problem with what kinds of sounds they produce, more than how they perform. Although I do own a Sennheiser HD 280 Pro, so I might be biased on more neutrality then not.
I just wish to get a pair that performs well, sounds fantastic, and fits great because in-ears are not my kind of thing.
They're all around the same price, but a little bit more information below.
- The GR07s that I will purchase is an eBay item that is supposedly the Classic Color Edition. I have not found any stuff revealing if the Classic Edition matches the sound quality of the other GR07s or if they actually did not use the bio-cellulose patent from Sony.
Actually I think that's about it with the product information. I'm actually looking into a 5th option, the Brainwavz B2. I've also heard a thing or two abou the RHA MA750, and also the DUNU DN-1000, but I don't really want to search any of those up anymore, so if you guys can tell me how they fare against those IEMs I've picked, I'd greatly appreciate it. I've heard they were pretty good, but I haven't actually researched anything for myself, so if you guys own it or have used it let me know how it sounded.
Again, the thing I'm worried about is performance. So please let me know which performs the best against each other. It really doesn't matter to me what kind of sounds they produce, whether it be dry, airy, warm and dark. It really doesn't take away from the performance issue that I have so I don't worry too much about it! Thanks guys.
