headphones

Which do you think are the best?

Senheisser CX400 II Precision
RHA MA600i
RHA MA750i
Bose IE2

Ideally I want something with a mic for iPhone 5 so I can use Siri etc and not too expensive, any opinions?

The first three headphones (CX400 and the two RHA models) are noise-isolating. That means that they make a seal with your outer ear canal that stops outside noise from coming in. The Bose IE2 (actually you would need the MIE2i set if you want Apple device controls and a microphone) aren't noise-isolating, they still let some ambient noise in. So that should help you decide on what you want.

Personally, I have a pair of Bose SIE2i earbuds. I went with the sports edition as I wanted something that I could use while exercising, walking to lectures (at the time) without worrying about sweat, and allowing me to wear them in my research lab and not worry about splashing some water on them. Also, the MIE2i and SIE2i are the only earbuds that are comfortable for me to wear and they don't fall out. Earbuds like the other three you listed always pop out of my ears. I can wear them sitting down without moving but will fall out if I turn my head or get up and walk. It's annoying and one of the reasons I never wore earbuds until now.

They aren't my primary headphones but I do wear them at least 4 times a week and they have never fallen out and I've never had to take them out because they hurt. So my vote goes towards the MIE2i Bose headphones but that's just me and due to my preferences, I haven't had any experience with the other earbuds as, like I've said, they wouldn't stay in my ears due to their designs.
