Best Earbuds I can buy for around $100?

Umm, i have the rha ma750's. They are $120 and all I can say is that they sound amazing. I'll be honest, i'm not the biggest audiophile, but I do like hearing details and something other than bass. Coming from skullcandy, sol republic, etc. So the rha earbuds were real clear and crisp. Anyways, here's this cool list I found (and used) when I was looking for earbuds: http://theheadphonelist.com/headphone-list/ It's actually very helpful and the people over at headfi forums really know their music stuff. 

 

the rha's are also very durable. I listen to music 24/7 no lie, and I'm a scrub so normal cheapo earbuds last no more than a few months, where as i've had the rha for a year to a year and a half. Still good and going strong.

About a year later after buying and being disappointed with the HyperX Clouds I've decided to buy some good earbuds/IEMs.

 

I'm currently leaning towards the Shure SE215s but I've heard that RHA has an offering for around the same price of $100.

 

I listen to Rock, Jazz, House, Rhythm and Blues, Electro Swing and Metal.

 

So yeah, what's the best I can get?

Well I misunderstood Linus, when he meant that they didn't suck, he just meant they didn't suck.

 

For some reason, I thought they could at least be better than your everyday headphones which might be true but I don't feel like investing in an AMP/DAC to find out especially since I'm listening to music on my phone nowadays.

I have a pair of clouds (the originals), and the Bose SoundSport. With a more powerful amp, the clouds have a rather nice sound to them IMO. Bose have a very odd sound signature, I wouldn't recommend them for listening, but they are extremely comfortable and super nice for jogging. Other than that I have only tried cheap headphones and some DT880's at a shop, so I may not be the best judge as far as sound goes.
