Hey guys! Long time, no post!

I need some new headphones for my bass playing stuff. I mainly play at church, and go direct in, with a head and cabinet behind me on stage so feel the low end. I don't remember the system we use, but basically, I have a small mixer next to me and can dial in my own mix. My headphones are at least 5 years old, and they were just $25 headphones from our local (now out of business) music store, and they are finally going bad.

So, I'm looking for the names of good in-ears around the $200 range that can handle the low-end of a bass guitar.

Any advice will be much appreciated!

I have been really happy with my Westone UM-2's. I don't think they make them any more - there is a different model. Basically 2-way buds, not custom fit, but a variety of options to get a comfortable fit that is pretty isolating.

I hate the in-ears anyway, so I just use the cheap-o jobs.

I have used my Bose in-ears for this though and they work pretty good.

I've been using Shure se215, I think they sound great!

Thanks for the replies. It's been a bit since I've posted, but I haven't forgotten. I'll be researching all the ones you guys mentioned. Thanks!
