    Looking for low profile IEM's ~$100

    I am looking for some new IEMs to replace my Brainwavz M4's. By 'low profile' I mean that I am looking for something that does not stick very far out of the ear. Any suggestions? I have heard that the Steelseries Flux Pro's are good, and I have also heard good things about Sure SE215's.
