I like my Beats X.

 

They have great noise isolation and sound pretty good.

 

Cost $190 on special from JB.





I know a little more than nothing but not much...

To add - for the $200 mark I would stay away from Bluetooth as you will compromise too much on quality and sound for the added features IMHO

Haha i bougth some from *gearb3st for $11 ... will let you know how it goes!

 

I had Westone 4 (i think that's what it was called) - no bass if it's not jammed and stuck inside the ear, but if stuck inside it was sore as h3ll.

 

PS anyone knows why gear best is a bad word?

I got Klipsch Image S4 II ~4y ago, still going strong. If it means anything, the price of these seem to only have halved in the 4y...

They were always good for me, but I guess I prefer a more natural./neutral sound rather than bass-heavy, so it might be worth trying some first if that is a worry!

Shure is good, but regardless of brand look at upgrading foam tips. Comply used to be good with lots of different foam tips. Proper isolation improves quality of sound significantly.
