The shure se215 and bose ie2 are out if sound quality is priority.

A fair warning, the SE215 is a bass-heavy IEM (or slightly bass-heavy depending on your preferences). The Etys are flat, neiutral, with the best clarity among the three.

The Shure SE 215 IEM's are great choice for those looking for tight bass and a nice sounding midrange. In comparison, the treble is not as articulate, it is rather laid back and slightly recessed. I personally would not recommend these IEM's if clarity is important.
