Poor soul.....all Bose products are overpriced. You can find much better quality phones for the same price or less. Check the in-ear thread at the top of the headphone forum. To help people know what you want, what kind of muisc do you listen to and what sonic qualities are important to you (bass, treble...).

I cant comment on the shure's, but every skullcandy made is terrible. Try the CX300, EP630 or the Mylar XB. I have the latter 2 and I think the EP630 would work nicely.

The CX300 is normally around $70 to $80 in my area.

I don't understand what you want? You want in IEM that doesn't isolate? Any IEM is going to isolate you from your enviornment. You probably want to look at earbuds (mx400/500), clip ons (ksc75), or open over the head phones (px100).

I could have bought them for 59 Swiss francs = 49.713518 US$ (Google). Don't ask me why they're so cheap here because the food and cloth are very expensive.

Try the CrossRoads MylarOne XB's, they're much better than the CX300's, they only cost $65.00 includes shipping from http://www.jaben.net/shopping.html

I thought you didn't want phones that isolate? Those are probably decent though. Link

If you want IEMs, ATH-CK7's are a great choice, IMHO. I have and wear them every day during my commutes. The sound is clear, mids and highs are well defined and bass is pretty good (although bassheads will find it lacking). They're also durable: after more than a year of constant use (and little abuse), they still sound great and are as good as new.
