hi guys I'm new here and need ur guidance with new pair of buds to use on my commute to work(by bike),sports(biking,snowbaording,..)and other travels. my budget is max 150 $ ,as the source i would be using primarily iPhone 4 and iPod so music controls would be nice option.i listen mostly metal,hard rock/rock,and classical, ambient music.
so far i have been reading reviews all around the net and got cpl of things that r in budget 
shure se 215 (with addition of a cable for controls)
jvc ha-fxt90
klipsch reference s4i
i have been using lower end buds for long time and i been eating them almost monthly (cpl of apples,sony's lower end buds,jvc,skull and recently siege audio stealth which lasted longest(8months) but my mic and function button died )so i think its time to spend little bit more and help my ears and at the same time slowly walk in the audiophile world in this department as i am in house audio system .
any pointers suggestion are more then welcome 
thks Bo

Look at either the Yamaha EPH-100, GR07 and Rockit Sounds R-50 (a cheaper version of the Vsonic GR01), they would all work well with the music you described.  The EPH-100 and R-50 are both around $120 but the GR07 is around $175 so a little out of the price range you set.

The EPH costs $150. The GR07 can be had on the forums for less than $135

I will rcommend the GR07, UETF10Pro, Etymotic HF5, Klipsch Image X5 for these genres music and they all are very detailed and offers good bass response with above average isolation.

Audio Affair the EPH-100 is $115.  Yes if he wants a used pair then you can get the GR07 for that I was just going by retail.
