    Bowers & Wilkins C5's are very good (but a bit more expensive than what you have said you would like to spend); I used to have a pair of Bose IE2's and found them comfortable and good.

    On this forum, I read a few posts which extolled the natural sound of 'Think Sound' products, and of course, then, there are the products from Shure, which come well recommended from anyone who has ever bought them.

    have you tried them?
    i was looking at them but they look uncomfortable...

    I also heard that bose earphones are overrated

    i dont like earphones that go behind your ear, which is why i have ruled out the shures

    If only I could find a set that don't fall out of my ears during an intense workout.

    I can dream though...

    (Right now my 'fix' is to use EarSkinz with the stock newer earbuds Apple supplies.)

    What is so bad about IEM that go behind the ear? If they fall out of your ear, they won't fall on the ground.

    Ok. To be honest, the Shure SE215 is king in this price range. So if you don't like it, then I don't know. Other IEM in this price range are inferior in my opinion so I can't recommended anything else.

    Sennheiser CX300ii - Good bass, sometimes a little overpowering, good mids and highs.

    Klipsch S4 - less bass then the Sens, good all rounds sound for the price, i hate the cable though, stain relief needs work

    Shure s215 - great bass, everything else is really good.

    I own(ed) all of these. Lost my Shures, Klipsch finally gave out so bought the Sens.

    Shure's were my favourite. They have an awesome warranty to, they replaced a pair after I accidentally stepped on them. Their "olive" foam tips are by far the best at keeping noise out.
