I've got some Westone UM1s, that I scored for just a hair over $100, and I'm a big fan. Comfortable, isolating, durable as hell, and while the treble leaves a little to be desired, the mids are smooth as butter.
Tried the V Moda Vibe - They work well if you get the foam earbuds. Reasonable isolation and good range.
Currently use the bose in-ear and like them the best. Very comfortable (most important for me), very good range, not great isolation.
Another vote for the Westone UM1. They sure beat the crap out of these Bose "in ear" phones.
I would agree, but my right bud stopped working on me. Really big disappointment.
i really enjoy the bose ie headphones . . . the fit is amazingly comfy . . . sounds is vary good too . . . and i know its odd but i love the cable not too stiff
I has two pairs but the wire striped on both. I'm happier with my cheep creative that are more durable.
Although I went "big-spender" and got myself a pair of Shure SE530s this spring (which I absolutely love), I used and thoroughly enjoyed a pair of Etymotic Research ER-6i 'phones for more than 2 years. No earth-shattering bass, but excellent clarity and soundstage, and very efficient. Excellent sound isolation with customizable tips. You can get these things for around $100 (ok, maybe just a bit over) at amazon or other online shops. My wife is now using them and she loves them. Highly recommended!
I'm currently using a pair of Shure SE110's that I got for $40. They sound great and the foam tips block a crazy amount of sound, so I can have the volume nice and low while still being able to hear.
Glad to see people thinking outside of the Bose box.
Just bought a pair of re0 from Head Direct. They are a marked step up from the re2 and the best iem's I have. The sound compares very well with full sized cans.
