Ok going to be using these outdoors a lot while being fairly active. Out of the options here currently I’m looking at these or the Nuforce hem4. I don’t like too much base honestly and my preference leans toward a clear well balanced sound with maybe a little emphasis on the vocals. I guess I’m looking for something that has a good build quality and is under 200 dollars that fits that description

The build quality is competent, yet the coating chips off over time and the stems are a bit fragile. If you're careful then you should probs be able to get some good milage out of these (i know I have, but i'm almost certain that varies quite alot per person).
I'd recommend the Massdrop x Nuforce EDC iems (I've also got them, and have since had no problems - I got them in october). The EDC 3 seem really cool too (especially if you're looking for an analytical sound), but i've not read (!) much about them yet.. so am hesitant to point you towards them as your go-to.

These MEE Pinnacles might be your cup of tea. They are very flat and very clear, very smooth for vocals. Highs are good, mid range (vocals) are excellent, upper bass is ok, deep base is understated. Getting the right fit is critical to getting these to sing, there are 6 or 7 pairs of tips to fit your ears. They are a larger, heavier in ear, so may not be the best choice for high activity levels. I went back to my old VModa for hiking, lighter and more bass. I don't find hiking to be a critical listening situation. At my desk, on the train or plane these pinnacles are great. The Pinnacles are much clearer/smoother than the VModa,
