    Hi everyone!
    Suddenly but surely I realised that 20$ headphones is not enough for me.
    So,I decided to buy something great,but I'm just a poor student,that's why 250-300$ is max i can pay for headphones :)

    I've been reading different articles/forums/youtube and so on and I've chosen next headphones to test:
    1. Westone w10/w20
    2. Shure 425
    3. Sennheiser ie80
    4. Sony xba-h3
    5. Sony xba-300

    Note here: I'm listening flac via iPod classic,mainly rock/folk/country ect. -like almost everything from '50 till '90 ;)

    Well,let's move on. I've spent half an hour listening each of those,and I was blown away with xba-300 sound. It was just great comparing with others,I was able to hear exactly everything,every sound was standing on the "right place", but sound was little bit artificial when I was listening some Jazz compositions, though I liked it in some way :)But frankly westone are more comfortable,huh.

    And yeah, i don't really need bass, more important are sound quality and noise cancelling.
    So,should I buy xba-300 or you can recommend something better?

    P.S. should I get something instead of my IPod afterwards?
    Thank you!
