Deciding Budget audiophile dap and headphones.

Hi guys. I have been looking to get budget audiophile dap for using in car as well as normally. I am considering fiio x1 or cayin N3. It is really confusing which one to choose. Also there are many other options in similar Budget like shanling and xduuo. Please help me choose.
Also I want to buy either a pair of over ear headphones or in ear. I don't know which ones would give better sound quality. I want wide open sound stage, crisp clear sound and some bass too but which is not overpowering the midrange. Budget strictly under 5k. Please recommend if you can.

Re: Deciding Budget audiophile dap and headphones.

Why not use a smartphone for the purpose of playing music? They are so good now that the DAP market has practically collapsed except for a few niche players.

The audio software functionality (VLC, PowerAmp, GMMP, Vanilla Player, Spotify, Google Music, etc) on a smartphone will be unmatched by any DAP.

The only advantage of a DAP over a smartphone is that it will have it's own battery. And if battery is a significant concern, you can carry another smartphone dedicated for music, setting it to Airplane mode to turn off the phone functionality.
