Well he's not an IEM convert yet (which i think he should be), he wants something to commute with on the train to and from work. He has a long commute (1hr 40mins each way) so comfort would be high on the priorities. Also there is a 'quiet' carriage on the train now that he wouldn't be able to use cans as they would leak too much sound (unlike my wife who uses that carriage with her IEMs).
So he has it in his head to buy the V-Moda M100's, but at that price it'll be awhile till he can afford. I'm also wondering at all if he will be happy with them from his specific set of needs/constraints;

1) Can wear for 2hrs at a time without discomfort.
2) we live in Australia, It can be hot, i bet he would get very sweaty wearing them
3) They leak sound.

How to the XB500's wear? They look comfy as hell! What about an IEM alternative, I owned the V-Moda Vibe IEMs in the past, they were ok, I prefer my Soundmagic E10's, especially when you consider the price differences also..
