Welcome to ABi.

This is an interesting question. You're wise enough to realize that the benefits of quality IEMs are huge. The S9-J3 comparison is kinda tough on some levels from all I have read and learned.

Maybe go at it this way:
What kind of music do you like? This can shape your IEM choices and quite frankly, there are a ton of excellent sounding IEMs in the 100-150 range, even lower at 75-100.

e.g. If you are a basshead, you may want to look more for dynamic driver IEMs rather than Balanced Armatures.

That kinda thing.

Look here: dfkt is compiling an excellent chart with his impressions of IEMs [he is a devoted basshead, btw]

This thread is also excellent:

But one huge benefit to J3 is the uSDHC card support. How big is your library?
