Don't act like you are a bullying victim and in search of pity from other people. Frankly as someone who has a shop of audio gears you strike me as unprofessional. If your intention in opening this thread is to help and share, then why you never give that kiatkiat guy your recommendation? Yet you are crying for sympathy.

I tried to talk it subtly and nicely so that this thread can be improved without defaming. But this is getting too ridiculous. In head-fi people like you would have been perma-banned.
QFTW. Maybe you should stick to your old 'forums'. At least you don't get flamed there since you're having this mindset.

You'll be better off and at peace over there instead.

- Your rig - Galaxy Note/iPhone 2g
- What type of usage - music usually (home and outside)
- File format used in your source - mostly mp3
- Genre of music you listen to - classical, trance, pop, acoustic (wide genre)
- Headphone / earphone type - headphone around ear (full sound isolation if possible)
- Other requirements - none other than sound isolation
- Budget - $80-120 or so

* Thought of getting CAL, but a friend of mine say it's sound isolation outside is not that good.

Sennheiser PX 100-II is my preferred option. I quite like the sound for its price point.
He want closed cans mah, thought PX-100 is open

It is not possible to get inline control (especially for volume) that will work with both the Galaxies and iDevices.

You may want to checkout the Munitio Billets or the JBL REF225. Both with single button control and mic.

If you are looking to get the UM3x without changing amp it will fall within your price range. Have you tried the Westone 4?

If you like neutral amps can go for Pico Slim/iQube.
