Hi,

Any recommendations for best in this price range? I got Orions, but I've heard that other earphones are better.

For gym, I recommend Shure because of their tight fit and isolation.

I personally would go for the 215 in your budget to tune out the noise while you workout with the elevated bass.

425 are great if you like vocals and vocals only :)
If you had $300 free, would you go for the 215 still? My work gives $300 for headphones, haha

Uhh, if you have $300 that you needed all spent, I would recommend another IEM haha. I thought of it from your own money perspective and needs for the gym.

With $300, I’d look into a B-stock IMR R1. Incredible IEM for the $ and you can tune it according to what sound signature you like with the filters. Isolation is ok too when it’s closed.

Wait for the B- stock to come back in stock:

Thanks for the recommendation! Looks like A- and B- are sold out permanently and B+/A+ are the only ones avail?

Also, I've been reading through the thread and I see that you mention it doesn't sound as good when closed. Do you think this is a problem for the gym? Also, how comfy are they?
