thanks :D i understand that but do you think i could wear the westones straight down by replacing the cables? (or are they even replaceable in the first place idk..)

so out of those listed which do you think will be better suited for my usage? will be playing the music from samsung galaxy s3

Wear downwards would be very weird fit for Westone/Shure earphones :o

se215 should have a stronger bass impact than dual and triple drivers due to the greater movement of air, accuracy wise, yes double and triple drivers would be more accurate

as for mids, se215 does seem to have a slightly forward midrange (somewhat a house sound for shures), as for mids it is harder to judge IMO, for some triple drivers (TF10) has a more laid back or even recessd mids. While most BAs tend to be cleaner and generally more accurate, the SE215 presents it sweetly.

For highs the SE215 is decently extended rolling off near the top, not particularly abundant but does have presence, analytical IEMs (mostly TWFK) tend to have a brighter sound, where treble has greater presence compared to SE215

I would say SE215 is fine for a consumer centric sound, something that makes music sound "fun". How it fares against dual and triple driver IEMs depend on the IEMs in question

i am think of buying TF10 from amazon against shure215, which do you think is better? I listen to general pop musics. Prefers clear sounds with a touch of bass.

imho, for pop musics with more (much) bass, shure215 might suit you better.
But in term of clear sound, TF10 will best SE215.
