    I use monster turbines but i don't like the ear tips that come with any in ear phones.

    Hence i use comply foam tips t400.

    Ultra comfortable and as they are expanding they stay in your ear better.

    Downside is they have a life of approx 3 months.

    Have to agree with this, used Sennheisers, Super Fi's and Phonaks before but for the money this are right up there. Great to have the inbuilt mic as well

    Sennheiser anything is going to be the best bang for your buck under $75. If you are wanting to spend a little more, look into Klipsch and Shure.

    I agree. Sennheiser and Klipsch are your best bets for under 100 bucks, great sound quality without the name brand price.

    I use the radius atomic bass headphones, they're really good and pretty cheap I think they're only $40. They have a lot of bass, if you're into that sort of thing.

    Audio Technica ATH M50- no one can beat them at this price- 150$. I am musician and this phones are simply comparable with highest class headphones.

    I can't believe no one have mentioned the Shure's 215 SE IEM's.

    - Detachable Cord
    - Thick and durable cord(reinforced with kevlar).. The whole IEM is really sturdy unlike the Klipsch s4i which are known for breaking easily in less than a year.
    - REALLY comfortable, in fact I always forget when wearing them. As a matter of fact, as you said that you travel quite a lot, these provides excellent sound isolation.

    - Now, most important..SOUND QUALITY. I pretty much agree with what Head-fi reviews says about this excellent IEM's, in summary: balanced sound, smooth bass and great clarity. Check some reviews in Head-fi about this IEM's.

    Finally, all this for 100$(you can get it for less). A better deal? Im sure not.

    Monster turbine Pro for me!

    These are Excellent! Superior sound, but expensive.
