This IEM seems to be the best seller at amazon.

I was wondering if it will provide good isolation and comfort. If not, which cheap (under $15) IEM can provide good isolation and comfort? For the sound, I would prefer something neutral and not fatiguing.

Please, help me find a nice IEM guys. Currently I'm using a JVC HA-FX101, one side stopped working so I need a new pair. I find it a little too bassy as all I do is listen to audio books and such. Also, it doesn't isolate noise too well. Good thing about it is that I can wear it for as long as I want without any discomfort. I have recently moved to India and I don't seem to have a lot of options of the Western market. I found a few earphones as follows but not sure which to get.

While I don't have any direct recommendation except for the Shure SE215 as the sound isolation is superb on it I'm not sure if it's in your price range. I can however direct you to this thread which has a in-depth reviews of many IEM. http://www.head-fi.org/t/478568/multi-iem-review-352-iems-compared-pump-audio-earphones-added-04-03-16-p-1106

I was wondering if I could get any IEM and pair it with triple flange ear tips like these to get maximum isolation.

Well that depends if you can find the ear tips that will fit the earphone.

Is it very difficult to do so?

Well that depends on the earphone you buy. If you give me more details like which IEM you want to buy I can help you check if they're are compatible ear tips.

I'm thinking Audio-Technica ATHCLR100BK because it's really cheap for me.

I'm not quite sure about that specific model but so long as the stem is around 2.5mm in diameter most 3rd party triple flange ear tips would be able to fit it. I guess if you have your mind set on these you can buy them, measure the stem diameter then purchase your triple flange ear tips based on whether it will fit or not.

You can buy them from Shure but I'm sure you can find a bigger variety on amazon.
