the highend stores you're referring to are probably the apple stores. they do have some units available for testing but they usually only carry the mainstream ones like beats, sennheiser.. but those like hifi man or westone iems, those are rare.
there is one store i know of which i have been frequenting lately - egghead. some free promotion for them for filipinos here who are interested. they don't carry all the brands that are popular here like the hifi man or vsonic and stuff but they have a huge selection of headphones and iems - most of which even have demo units. I'm going there in a bit and i'm gonna pick up my TDK BA200s =p~
maybe you could check your spam?
i'm not a member of headphiles.. i'm not too familiar with the forum but i'll check it out.. i enjoy it here in head-fi because they seem to have more access to a wider variety of IEMs and headphones so i get an idea of what I could aim for or try to get when a friend would go overseas or something like that. It's risky getting something you haven't auditioned before but it's worked for me so far.
I'm more into IEMs than I am headphones, easier to commute with, more practical :)
by the way, for headphone users, what do you guys think of the razer electra? the only headphone i own is the ATH-m50s and i find it to be pretty good, i had a problem with sibilance before but that seems to have gone away with burn in. Thing is, i heard the razer electra because my friend owns it. it's less than half the price of the m50s but sounds pretty good to my ears. detail was clear though it did sound pretty dark to me but not overly so. i'm thinking of getting as it's more comfortable than the m50s.
