Well the yamaha eph100 has a sound signature similar to the shure se215 but has better sound quality according to most threads

I have had a lot of driver flex problems with the klipsch x10 so...

Fun sounding:

yamaha eph100

Phillips fidelio s1 and s2

 

Neutral:

Rha ma 750

Etymotic hf5

Klipsch X10 has pretty bad build quality but sounds good. Shure SE215 are a great bassy IEM, but I think you'd like RHA MA750 more. Better build quality, too, but no removable cables. Like the above said, Yamaha EPH-100 are great, as well. Philips Fidelio S1 if isolation isn't your biggest concern (they isolate, just not as well as the other options).

 

I disagree with Zune on the RHA MA750 being neutral, though. HiFiMAN RE-400 are a good alternative if you want neutrality. If you can get your hands on VSonic VC1000, those are great, too. Brighter sounding than the RE-400 and more balanced.

I love my x10, the sound quality is good for its price.

as a portable earphone for summer, it's great and very easy to carry in my pocket.

They may crap on me tomorrow, but I have had any issues with the build quality of my X10s. I'm not really rough with them, but I carried them to classes and around with me for about a year, and I've continued to use them for another year on top of that. I think it's one of those YMMV situations. But frankly, the reason it travelled with me so much was because I considered it expendable. I paid about $80 for the X10 when it was being phased out, and I honestly don't think it's worth more than that. At the price you're looking at you could get a GR07 or a TDK IE800 (assuming you can still find them in stock). Personally I'd even choose the meelec A161P over the X10. I haven't heard the Shure, but most seem to rate it lower than the phones I've just mentioned.
