Now that school has come back around i notice myself wanting a pair of good iem's. I have beats mixrs and v-moda m80s but i don't feel like wearing big headphones around my neck all day. I mostly listen to dubstep or trap which is like remixes of songs with crazy beats and all this. Kinda electronicy, but ya i really like how my m80's sound and i want something for around 100 bucks that will sound good in this genre to.
 
I will be using them during school so they need to be durable and good looking. They also need to not leak at all, i've never had a pair of buds before so i don't know if this is even a real concern.
 
So far the monster turbine and re-400 have caught my eye. Also if you guys have any foam tips that you'd reccemend i plan to get some with the new IEMs because earbuds and stuff never fit me right so i think foam tips will solve that problem. I think they usualy don't fit me because i have small ear holes.

Do you like a lot of bass? If so, theres the tekfusion twinwoofer.
If you want something with a bit of extra bass (not basshead levels) like your m80:
Rha ma750 (3 year warranty with authorized vendors)
Yamaha eph100 ( the multiflange eartips may be a problem with people with smaller ears but usually have a lot more isolation)
Foam tips for the eph

Ttpod t1e (dual driver... Can be found on penon audio)

oh wow cool the rha warranty is very impressive. Is amazon count as a authorized retailer? And the yamaha look cool to with the foam tips. But im not so sure about how the rha has the around the ear style. I plan to have these hanging out the front of my shirt when not in use and i wounder if having the bend in the cable like that would look silly
 
 
EDIT after looking a little more the rha seems really cool.

If amazon is the specific vendor, yes.
