    Hello Chaps,

    Looking to replace my Shure Se110 which i have had for a few years and have now died. They've been functional without being impressive, but did the job so can't really complain.

    Need to get a new set of headphones, with a bit of an upgrade.

    Things you might want to know:

    - Willing to spend somewhere in the £70 to £130 range (or more if someone tells me that I really really need to...).
    - Will be using them mostly either on the tube, at the gym or running.
    - Listen to wide range of music (but with guitar-based bias if I'm honest).
    - Also tend to listen to quite a lot of podcasts.

    Was going to be a bit boring and plump for whatever Bose had to offer, but eventually thought I should do some homework first.

    Any recommendations?

    for a guitar bias and from what little i know the Phonak PFE's are a good choice and within the budget you have set yourself!

    sure the experts will be along soon to help out

    i'd go for the Klipsch Image S4i. Great sound quality, and will stay within your budget.

    IEMs earphones for £100

    At around the £100 point the Phonak Audeo PFE 012 is well worth considering. Loads more clarity than the Klipsch Image S4 (or S4i) and a way more comfortable in-ear fit.

    The Bose IEMs are really very disappointing. Lots of bass, not much accuracy and many people find they fall out of their ears!
