Ety's are better than the Shure's IMO but thats just my observation...
Try out the $124 Etymotic ER6 or the Shure E2c before you go higher. These mwill satisfy your needs IMO and there is no need to blow your wad unless that is your primary intention.
You could get a nice Rio Nitrus, Mint amplifier from JMT Audio (www.jmtaudio.com) and the Ety's/Shure and be set for any destination.
