Hi guys, I'm sorry if this was suppose to go into one specify thread but I couldn't find it.
I'm looking for an IEM under $100. My focus is on mid and high, however I do wish for some bass.
I was amazed by Re0 reviews, but never got around to buying it.
Is it still worth buying in 2012? 
I've also taken a look at shure se215, Etymotic HF5, and etc.
What would be the best option for me?
Thank you very much.

While you're technically correct, I don't know why we should single out his one thread when like 25% of all threads are advice threads about which IEM to get. No one seems to mind on all the other threads.

i agree. i tend to look at people's help wanted threads and see what suggestions they get rather than search till my eyes bleed and not get any closer to actually deciding on anything

if you've got some helpful info on the matter. try just being helpful instead of being a forum stickler and directing everybody to one giant thread.

people post a question in that thread and they are lucky to get ONE reply then the next person comes with a question and the thread moves on... when someone makes a thread with one question. they might have 20 people chime in with a different point of view.

i think the one thread for advice thing is stupid.

I would say the re0 or possible the ue700, klipsch x10 are on sale for under 100 but still re0 would be my first choice for what type of characteristics you describe.
