I didn't know you could order from amazon US for international shipping -- that would save a lot of people time and effort here over headfi! 
SE215's for sure, or if you want blue, get the SE215SE's. Or SE115m if you want a microphone (pretty much the same drivers, different housing)...

Thx for input.
I heard there are sound different between SE215 and SE215SPE , True?
I also heard Fxt90 and Fxt90L2 are 2 different item. L2 is more expensive and better(some said).. both are few years old and not as popluar as SE215... any more information pls?
I may think of FXT90/Hifiman RE400 if i can find one...
Can i have more suggestion pls?

Yes, the 215SE has a ouch more bass and treble extension.

The differences between the FXT90s are purely aesthetic, no sound difference.

The RE400 is going to be more neutral than any if the other IEMs mentioned so far.

I found the price of them in HKD($1USD = $7.8 HKD fixed):
RE400 $750 ($96)
JVC HA-FXT90 $650-700 (around $89)
JVC HA-FXT90L2 $800-900 unstable (around $108)
SE215 $770 ($97)
SE215 SPE $850  ($108)
Considering with the price and my style.. which one is more worth for the money?
Thank You
