My old ER4s have seen better days but I barely use them anyway as I find them so uncomfortable for more than 15 minutes.
In the office I use AKG K550 headphones which I'm very happy with, I bought Sennheisser HD-25 II for portable use but they're also uncomfortable after some time as I have quite a big head.
I've looked for portable headphones which will be comfortable enough but all of them (with low leakage/ high isolation) seem to clamp tightly, I recently tried B&W P5's but the bass was horrible, boomy and distorted, so bad that I suspect they have a fault.
Anyway, I've came to the conclusion that I should probably try a more comfortable set of IEMs, I will use my iPhone without an amp for the moment but I am interested in buying one, I listen mostly to guitar based indie music and rock/pop, minimal leakage and high isolation is essential and my budget is around the equivalent of $300
I've been doing some investigation and the Westone 2 IEMs sound very appealing due to comfort, build quality and sound.
What else should I consider?
Thanks in advance for your help.
