For $100 you can have an audiologist make a custom ear-mold for you that will work with etymotic's line of earphones.  I got a pair of full concha molds and couldn't be happier.

I don't know what the hell you guys are smoking, but they're hardly priced for the mass market. Nobody outside a production studio will buy these stupid things.

This isn't geared towards your normal hipster looking to replace his white earbuds for something else, cause white isn't in or something. This is for people who need hearing protection, but still want to be able to listen to music or something while they're doing their work. Either get sound-isolating ear buds, or get custom ear plugs with ear buds molded into them.

$300 is hardly reasonable for anyone who isn't an audiophile. I like music as much as the next guy but wouldn't consider paying more than $100 for a pair of headphones.

There are several companies that do this already. Big Ear is where I had my custom earplugs made. Custom plugs with their ear buds start around $150, and I'm pretty sure they can use many other ear buds as well, such as Shure.

 

I just don't see what the difference is between going to one of their retailers and going to an audiologist.
