I am looking for a set of mid priced really comfortable but awesome sounding in ear headphones.

I don't mind spending upto $150 but at that price range I'd want something special.

I have 3 pairs of over ear headphones including the phitek noise cancelling, the hd555's and another set for 3d gaming, but I want something easy to wear.

Anyone able to recommend a few options? I see the bose for around $70 on trademe. I can buy sony at wholesale.

I'd recommend the Sennheiser CX500 Earbuds, bang on your $150 top range though.  Here are some on Trademe: (Recommend the trader as well..)

Shure earphones are one of the better brands. I tried some of these in the airport and man they're comfortable as.

I personally use Ultimate Ear in ear ones and they're pretty good. I got them from here:
