I'm after some new in ear headphones for under AU$300. My hifi shop suggested the B&W C5s, but I don't know enough about the other brands in the price point, so I want to look into some alternatives. Particularly as they are unlikely to recommend brands they don't stock.
I'll be using the headphones with an ipod classic, with a FIFO E07K portable amp/dac. I listen to everything from EDM to hip hop, punk, metal, pop, rock, jazz and blues. Also, my ears are a bit sensitive to high frequencies, so nothing overly strong in the high bands please.
Very grateful for any thoughts or suggestions.
