Hello,
My name is John and i need help.
I recentlly broke my apple Ear Buds and i want to buy newin ear headphones. I use headphone for about 6 hours a day.
what i am searching for is a pernement set of headphones, headphones that will last "forever". This are my needed feutures:
 
* Very durable (i have a problem with they hitting the wall from time to time which eventually breaks them)\
*Medium-High Qualtiy (I'm not sure what's is the qualtiy of the apple 5 earbuds but i know that i want a better quality then that)
*I want them to look good be stylish, not to many colors and i want them to just stick in my ear not like the weststone adventure series alpha.  https://www.google.co.il/search?q=westone+adv+series+alpha&es_sm=93&tbm=isch&imgil=uiWMlUPuczoHZM%253A%253Bhttps%253A%252F%252Fencrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com%252Fimages%253Fq%253Dtbn%253AANd9GcRPv9urj8s8cerpIYK-eKy2xOJsMKXoKjRywaPA3DM2Zo8pd8as4g%253B1486%253B991%253B2-Yz_g3YIoXGRM%253Bhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fwww.digitaltrends.com%25252Fheadphone-reviews%25252Fwestone-adventure-series-adv-alpha-review%25252F&source=iu&usg=__WGdwElZnJDHqp_SseGJrUN4ZwZs%3D&sa=X&ei=yG5vU7nICKj17AbXmAE&ved=0CEUQ9QEwBA
 *My price range is- $100-$200

Could you please state your audio preferences? Like more bass, bass-heavy, flat, mid-centric etc.? It would help us more to recommend the right iem.

I'm no expert so I don't know what any of those mean. I use in-era headphones for general music and watching movies. I want high quality but I'd doesn't have to be the best. Hope you can help me.

It would be easier to point you in the right direction if you give a hint on how you prefer them to sound. What's most important to you: deep rumbling bass, good soundstage, great clarity etc.
 
 You can also ask in/check out these threads:

There's many helpful people there with experience from A LOT of IEM's.
 
Good luck

First of all thank you for helping me. Now, I posted a post on one of your forums I hope that helps. As I said I don't understand the meanings of what you said, I'm looking for an overall for sound quality. I found the Atomic Floyd brand which I quite like. But the Superdart and the Minidarts are too expensive for me. So there's the Powerjax which look good but I found out that the sound quality isn't the best. What do you think? Will I be able to notice it (I'm no expert so I don't know how much will it effect). My old earbuds are apple's, are the atomic Floyd's Powerjax better?
Thank you agian

Sorry I've never heard any of the Atomic Floyd IEM's.

I'm sure you're going to get some help in the other thread :)

You might want to ask specific about the Powerjax there as well.

Where are you located?

I saw you had posted in Joker's Multi IEM thread.  I think the best place to start would be his earphone buyer's guide where he highlights some details of the different commonly found signatures in a variety of prices ranges and groups them accordingly:
 
http://theheadphonelist.com/earphone-buyers-guide/
 
Also, another invaluable resource would be this 'describing sound' glossary if you're confused with any of the commonly used terms/descriptions:

Hope that helps out some!

Hmm... Well, I've never tried the Atomic Floyd's, so I can't help you there. But do you like your apple earbuds? And by that I mean sound-wise. Do you want something with less 'thump' on the lows? If you do like them, I think the best option would be the Shure SE215, and they're not hard to love.

Sorry but I strongly disagree on the SE215. You can easily get better for the money and the design is just the way that OP does not want.
 
Altough I really don't like to recommend stuff I have not heard I'd check out the Dunu DN1000. It's has the design that he wants and reviews are ananomous on great buildquality. It's at the top of the budget though.

Okay then, no problem. I personally love the Astrotec AX35 as something under $100. Might want to check that too.
