Hello guys. I need some advice. My boss is going to the USA for a couple of days, and I finally have the chance of buying some decent not overpriced audio stuff (I'm from Brazil). Unfortunately, my money is low. I'm planning a budget of, at maximum (due the rare opportunity for me) 300 bucks. So, first I wanted to buy only a good IEM, but my iPod Touch 2nd Generation started to show issues in the audio exit. Because of this, and the weakened battery due to his age, I will try to buy a new music player too. Said this, I have a couple of questions:
1 - For a music player, Fiio X3 is really a good option or is just marketing? I can find it for 199 bucks (this price I got for Amazon) in regular stores (my boss will stay most of the time in Miami, New York is a option, but Miami would be easier)?
2 - For the IEM, the Shure 215 is a good starting option (will be my first IEM with more money invested)? I listen mostly progressive and indie rock. I can find those earphones for 99 bucks (Amazon too) in Miami relatively easy?
3 - Due to my budget limitations, I might not buy the two products. Having to choose, what component do you find more important in improving the general quality of the audio?
Thanks and sorry for the poor grammar.
