    Hello Everyone,

    Being so hard to sample all the IEM choices that are out there, I'm coming here for advice on replicating my experience with my Alessandro MS-1s (Alessandro MS-1). I've been told they are similar to Grado SR80/125s if that helps. These are my first and only headphones, but I love them and would be elated to replicate their sound in IEMs. I enjoy their slightly beefed up low end but I really enjoy them for rock ballads as well, no complaints. Obviously I'm not looking for monitors and I'm a poseur audiophile, so please be kind. :p

    Some details....

    - Looking for something around $50 or less
    - Use Case for Airplane rides & the gym
    - I am strongly consider DIY Custom Ear Pieces with Sugru or Radians custom molded earplugs. My last plane ride drove me nuts, I need a great seal & isolation.
    - Source: MP3 / Streaming services, powered off Android smartphone or laptop
    - Random songs I just listened to via streaming service (can range from punchy Pop to Rock Ballads):
    U2 - Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
    Coldplay - Fix You
    Hypnotize by The Notorious B.I.G.
    Kayne West Golddigger
    Bruno Mars - It Will Rain
    Scorpions - Wind of Change
    U2 - The Sweetest Thing

    Many thanks!

    EDIT: Perhaps I am confusing IEMs vs. Earbuds or am willing to make IEMs from Earbuds with Sugru.
