Default Looking for new iem's, need earphone advice...

My beloved Shure's crapped out...again. Loose wire or something. Second time I've had a pair of Shure's go bad after having them only 3 or 4 years. I really can't justify spending close to $100 usd for earphones that don't last longer than that.

Here's what I'm looking for:

Price range: $30 to $50 usd.
Type: In-ear, sound-isolating, closed
Use: Varied...home, backpacking, biking, etc.
Sound: Balanced. I'm not a base freak. Would like decent soundstage if possible.
Type of music: Varied. A lot of rock and heavy metal, though.
Source: Cowon S9

I'm currently considering a pair of Sennheiser CX500's for $36 through Amazon, but I'd like to know what else I should be looking at.
