I have been extremely divided between which headphones to buy. I have a long wish of having a pair of Sennheiser CX300-II because of the simple design and the fantastic reviews I've been seeing everywhere but I have been told there are a lot of people crazy about the MEElectronics M9 and M6. Meanwhile I also took a look at the Hippo Pearl pair. I have a limited budget mainly because I am not an audiophile and I'm afraid I would not notice that much difference between these type of headphones and those +$100. I care a lot about the design too and if you want some guidance I only used the headphones that came with the iPod and I also had a pair of Phillips SHE9501/00. My main problem with the M6 is about it's design (seems a little bit weird to me) and it's price as well as the M9's seem to be a little bit higher right now (I read that there were people who bought the M9 at $18 and it seems it is at $29 right now). The Sennheiser CX300-II seem to be expensive right now, too. I am a total newbie in terms of audio material so I was hoping you could help me and I am going to use them mainly on my iPod shuffle and my computer.
