Default Which In-Ear Headphones for my Zip?

Having had a string of Sony MP3 players, I am now the proud owner of a Zip 8GB.

I was wondering what In-Ear headphones others are using? I have a set of PX100's, but need some In-Ear one's for when they are not suitable.

Looking at on-line reviews I have narrowed it down to either Soundmagic E10's or Shure SE215's.

Anyone of you knowledgeable people care to comment? Would the extra money spent on the Shure's be worth it?

Steve.

My Shures have been my day-to-day go-to's. But I can't offer a comparison.

Stevewils...

what did you use with the Sonys? Just the PX100's?

Because whatever worked with the Sonys will probably be just fine with the Clip Zip.

I moved your thread to the headphone forum and I really think you should add some information to your original post. Read the sticky here to get an idea of what is missing when asking for IEM/headphone recommendations. There's other sticky threads there that can help you, like dfkt's 63 IEM spreadsheet here.

The Sony player had noise canceling headphones with their own connector, so I tended to use them.

The PX100's I used for everything else.

If you can somehow find the Vsonic GR06 in the UK, that's the best bet under £100 IMO. Also searching Amazon.co.uk, the GR07 is £100 if you're willing to spend a little more and it is quite better than the Shure. The GR07 actually competes with top tier IEM according to reviews. Both the Soundmagic and the Shure are not bad IEMs, but there are better values nowadays IMO.
