by ‘affordable’ I mean quite inexpensive…$250…mebe $300 as the maximum the cans / IEMs can cost. and yes, used prices qualify if a more expensive set are often sold within the specified budget.
what sound profiles? whatever would replicate popular music genre’s at this price point. also, I know the DAC / Amp will have a significant effect on this, so let’s assume the sound chain is Spotify Premium going into the iFi Zen Air DAC and then into the Zen Air CAN.
