need headphone or IEM budget 150~200

i'm having been using UE super fi pro for quite some times, found that it always give me ear/headache when i put them on, i dont know why too maybe due to the design of it, although the sound its good but headache suck!

now i'm thinking of getting another IEM or a whole ear headphone..

i listen to POP, Rock , and trance/house music i also need to great fitting and comfort..

any idea between 150-200? budget can be up slightly

thanks =)

Number of drivers is a small matter. If you like the sound and you just want it to fit better then go reshell. I think it's just over $300 including ear impressions, shipping, etc.

Number of drivers dont really matter, I preferred the single driver ER4B to the triple driver SE530 (i owned both at one point in time).

Just go with what you like, if you really like the sf5pros then by all means reshell them .

If not, sell em 2nd hand and maybe you can up your budget!

Try the Radius DDMs (nice presentation, good timbre)
klipsch x5/x10 (from forums, crazy bass on these)
ER4P (must order from overseas, very clinical and precise..also one of the most detailed iems out there)
TF10 (get from forums NEW at ~230-250, but if you have fit issues with sf5pro then youll probably have em with tf10s)

As for headphones you can go wrong with the ATH-M50(nice bass), ESW9(slow, warm sound great for jpop), or HD-25-1 II
