Skullcandy titans. I just bought a pair to replace my broken brookstones and they're great, but you might want to buy something even more fancy given your $70 budget though.

Heya,

For about $20 or so more, you can step up to the . I'd go for that if you're already willing to spend $70 on some Klipsh stuff. The range and quality of the Shures for that price range are solid and hard to beat. The wires are detachable by the way so you can switch them out; also makes it harder to destroy your buds if they get snatched on something (typical destruction of IEM's).

Very best,

However the SE215 do not suit his music taste nor tbh, low-end Shures aren't really that good.

This. However since the Nuforces can be had locally in the US + have got a very good warranty service, I'd go for them.

The NE-700X would be a very good buy for your needs.
