Default Audio-erotic Asphyxiation

Ok maybe not that erotic, but in terms of headphones, particularly in-ear headphones, have any of you found a preference that is the end-all be-all/bee's knees/top ****?

My damn Klipsch K4i went missing recently and the Miata is slightly less pleasant to be in for long periods of time(noise!).

Currently looking at the
Shure SE215k Shure SE215k
for $99.

I'm by no means an audiophile, but could be swayed to go up in price if they are convincing enough.

The Bose IE2's are by far, no hands down, the most comfortable in-ear headphones I've ever used.

The sound is very good, though probably not on par with the best-performing sets. But the incredible comfort is well worth the trade-off in my opinion.

When sound-isolation is the biggest concern (like mowing the lawn), I use MEElectronics M6's with Comply T-200 tips.

DIY Sugru ear buds based off of whatever is laying around, typical something at least a step up from stock apple ones, which would be everything.

Monster Turbines are surprisingly good, despite the company's reputation for snake oil.
