HJE120? That is around a $5 earphone. What do you expect at that price?   The HJE120 is also much less efficient than the better Panasonic IEMs.    Imo the $12 Soundmagic ES18 sounds great, especially considering its $12 price.   What are you looking for in an IEM?    I like the Panasonic RPHJE450 and RPHJE355. The HJE450 has stronger bass impact, however the HJE355 has better detail. These are around $18-$25.   For around $25 the XBA-1 is quite good. It is a BA...
"The retail price is 9,999 JPY, however you can find it for 8,500 JPY and given the Sony xba line history, I think in some months it can achieve the 7,000 JPY mark."   8,500 yen =$74.56.     7,000 yen= $61.40   Given the history of the XBA line, some might be expecting this to eventually get to $25 as the XBA-1 did. I might be willing to pay up to around $45 for this, but that is about it. I can't see paying over $50 for this.    When I first saw the XBA-1 and the...
Refurbished often means new open box, when it has gone back to the manufacturer, although sometimes it might also mean a defective item that was repaired. In the case of headphones though, if someone thinks it is defective, then it probably is. With something like an mp3 player or other electronics, it might not be defective, it might just need a format and reloading of the firmware. Assuming your headphone might have been defective and was fixed and tested by Sennheiser,...
Good luck. The first thing you need is plenty of money, as even businesses that ultimately turn out to be successful often lose money for at least a few months first. You need to find a good location at an affordable rent.You need to stock it well with inventory, advertise, and expect to have plenty of unexpected expenses.   If you don't have much retail experience it is best to work for someone else for a few years.   Most smaller retail stores are very...
"I decided to just present my thoughts on the differences between celebrity and audiophile headphones.'   The difference is that the headphones that truly have good sound quality are the ones that real musicians buy.  Take a survey of classical musicians and see which headphones they buy.    You will probably see the brands Sennheiser, AKG Beyerdynamic, and Audio Technica mentioned quite often.   The people here generally have had little of no experience with...
The Sounmagic ES18S is low priced and sounds great.   I have the regular ES18 without the controls.    http://www.head-fi.org/t/598627/review-soundmagic-es18-measured   http://www.amazon.com/SoundMAGIC-ES18S-Headphone-Microphone-Gunmetal/dp/B00N6SHAJC/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1414547364&sr=8-3&keywords=ES18
If you want something that sounds good and is inexpensive, look at the Soundmagic ES18S   http://www.head-fi.org/t/598627/review-soundmagic-es18-measured   http://www.amazon.com/SoundMAGIC-ES18S-Headphone-Microphone-Gunmetal/dp/B00N6SHAJC/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1414547364&sr=8-3&keywords=ES18
What is your budget? If you want something like an Etymotic, then at least tell us why you don't want to buy an Etomotic.  Is the price the reason? I bought the Sony XBA-1, and I find it isolates very well when placed deeply in the ear, with the outer end even with my tragus.The XBA-1 is only around $25 now. The XBA-1P version with mic and controls for iphone is around $35 now. 
What is your budget?  Do you want something that isolates?   Using a portable CD player at the gym is awkward. Many use a $35 4GB Sandisk Clip+ mp3 player. The Clip+ has a micro card slot, so you can add a card and have a huge amount of music(hundreds of CDs) in a tiny player. It has excellent sound quality.
There is the XB60EX.
