First off, what's the difference between the two? Is it just in name? Secondly, I have a set of musician's earplugs, as my ears are rather sensitive to noise at concerts, plays, etc. The plugs are custom-fit by an audiologist, and are perfectly sealed. The filters are also removable for cleaning. Is there a set of earphones or IEMs or whatever they are where I could take the head off and be left with a little speaker that I could put into my musician's plugs, essentially giving me perfectly sealed and comfortable earphones? It seems that a lot of the sets I've seen would do the job, but I don't know if they would fit in the hole, or if they're any good. As such, what's a good entry-level set of Ear Canal phones/IEMs/whatever they are for playing just about any kind of music proficiently?
