Preferably specialist stores, with a wide variety of IEMs.

Are there any places in Sydney where I can buy IEMs?
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
Hmm, here are my suggestions for places where you can see, buy (and maybe even try) IEMs:
Wicked Digital is probably the first option that springs to mind. A little showroom where I've been a few times to audition stuff, and prices pretty decent (though still not competitive with overseas prices).
Audio Technica now has a dedicated store at the bottom floor of the new CBD Westfield building, and JB Hi Fi on the top floor has a pretty comprehensive selection of headphones from the usual suspects (Skullcandy, AKG, Sennheiser). Not sure about their IEM's, but they have a wide range of headphones you can try.
There are also some online stores like minidisc.com.au but you can't really take a look before then.
If I can think of any more places I've stumbled into I'd post them, but its pretty slim pickings in Sydney - especially for IEM's as opposed to headphones. Hope that helps =)
Haha unfortunately given the size of the market for high-end earphones in Sydney, your convenience is not really a factor. It's possible to get high end UE's at Dick Smith, or high end Sennheisers at Harvey Norman?
*EDIT* Actually, I just remembered - DJ Warehouse in
Leichhardt has a pretty good selection also.
