Hi.
 
My phone earbuds have stopped working. I would like to buy something in the Sennheiser CX 300 II price range.
 
I intend to use them while I walk to work so noise cancelling of some sort is a plus. 
 
I listen to classical music (all genres including symphonic, opera, chamber, piano sonatas) and BBC podcasts. 
 
What do you think are my best options?
 
 
Thanks a lot!!

You will probably find this thread interesting.

Nocs NS400 seem to be a good choice.
 
From my experience,
 
Yamaha EPH100: Highly recommended.
Yamaha EPH50: Just stay far away from them.
AKG K314p: Quite cheap, nice, and enjoyable sound. No bass and they are not in-ear.
 
Best Luck!

See this thread. Lots of IEMs in your price range with rich description so you can make the best choice for you:
You might also watch the IEM deals thread to see if you can get a killer deal on a better grade of IEMs: http://www.head-fi.org/t/518656/the-iem-portable-headphones-deal-alerts-thread-read-the-first-post
