Hi all I'm new to the whole audiophile scene but i love music and im looking to get some new IEM for under $150 or so. I like to listen to rock, dubstep and alternitave rock, so sound is a big player in this. I also would like the monitors to be somewhat comfortable. I have been looking into shure se215s and Vsonic gr07. But all i need is some help finding the right earphones.  Please help me.
 
Thanks, Ben

Also the EPH-100 would be a good choice, I liked them better than the GR07 plus they would be much better for dubstep than the GR07.

The BA200 is my favorite IEM that I've heard as you can see from my signature below.  They work great with all types of music but the only reason I didn't suggest them is because you like dubstep and the bass might be just a tad light for that though if you EQ the bass up they have plenty of punch and depth imo.  $149 is a great price for them because they sound as good as a lot of $300 and even $400 IEM's.

Did you see if buydig.com ships to Finland?  Other than that you can find them on ebay for around $150 so try those 2 places.
