Any recommendation ? I did a little research  and found the Shure SE215. What other Brand / IEM you guys would suggest. 

 

Thanks.

What kind of music do you like? What's your source? How important are things like durability, isolation, fit, color, etc. to you?

I generally listen to Pop, Trance/DnB, ChillStep, OSTs, Anime Music and such. Source would be PC & Sansa Clip+/FiiO X3. would prefer something w/ a bit of durability but isn't a must. The rest doesn't matter.

Well the 215 Special Edition will be right up your alley. I have it myself and love it. Others to consider are the VSonic GR07  Bass Edition and JVC FXT90.

Well most prefer the rha ma 750 and yamaha eph100 over the se215. The yammies and shures have a very similar sound signature according to most comparisons. Haven't heard them myself though.

 the eph100 is a really good all around earphone for the price. imho it is the best bang for the buck iem in that price range. i have heard  that some people have had issues with the right side cutting out but ive had mine for over a year now and never had any trouble. hope this helps

For under a $150 the best offerings would be from the Chinese brands like Vsonic, Soundmagic, Zero Audio, all of which make cheap and very price efficient headphones. To be honest the diminishing returns for IEMs is much earlier than it used to be years back, no longer is the point at $400 onwards, it starts (IMO) past $100.
