Another headphone thread

Im looking for some in ear headphones. My ones have stopped working in 1 ear and I cant stand the sound of the spare ones I have.
 
£25 maximum and they will mainly be used in the gym and walking to work/college.
 
These are the three sets ive been looking at. Are they any good? More suggestions welcome, thanks.

I've got the SoundMagic ones (annoyed I paid £20 though lol) and they're great!  I love them!
 
Have only had them for a couple of weeks though but I was recommended them after another long thread comparing earphones and these seemed the best bet, especially at that price.

You get what you pay for. I've been through loads of cheapies over the years but I bought a pair of shure's and never looked back. Sound quality is amazing and the cables detach at the bud so if the cable gets damaged you don't have to change the expensive part. I recommend the SE315's

Alternatively the Bose ones are good quality but not good for running as they don't stay in your ears.

I thought I'd give the Soundmagic PL30's a spin a few weeks ago and bought a pair. I also bought a pair of Sennheiser CX300II a few weeks prior to that for a friends bday. While I like the PL30's I had a go of my friends Sennheisers the other day and was surprised to find that I liked them better than the Soundmagic, clearer, fuller sound imo.

For around that sort of budget I would recommed spending just a tad more and get these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Head-Direct-RE0-In-ear-Noise-Isolating-Headphones/dp/B001MQ8BL6
 
They are easy to drive and won't require any use of portable amps etc. I've owned lots and lots of heads phones ranging from £800 to £20 and I can tell you if you're listening to gym type stuff which I assume Dance, Pop, RnB etc. it doesn't get much better than these.

Re0 are meant to be fragile, and thin on bass if you are a bass head.
 
Id have though as id rather have quality first, plus my ue5's have good bass anyway.

Thats daft!, order-return another set, the amount of ones I have got like that and went on and got a new pair sent out I would have ran out of products to buy, I never do that unless it happens a few times would I give up, its manufacturing, its going to happen.
 
By far the worst for that are Sony, to a laughable amount, and Shure..shure easily being the worst build quality/ warrenty people to deal with.

Haha. I was really looking forward to giving them a blast in the gym tonight. The one earphone I could hear though sounded pretty good. Not as good as the sound from the Phillips ones I had before that broke.
 
I've sent them back for a refund. CBA to mess about with it mate. I'll wait till I've got a little more cash and buy some half decent ones I think.
