Just purchased David's MisterX XP amp. Easy communication, fast shipping, everything as desrcibed and works like a charm.

The 8GB Fuze was available for as little as $50 last week, so keep looking. For $80 you should be able to get a 16GB Fuze on sale. Check Amazon and Price Grabber. For about $130 you can get a Cowan D2 with a carry case and a screen protector.

I've had the X-5s for about a week, the D2 for 4-5 days, so this really is a first impressions post, rather than a comprehensive review. I'm still playing around with the gel tips for the X-5s. The large double flange works best, but isolates too well. I can't hear the phone ring when I wear them in my office and I don't feel safe wearing them outside, but they should be great when I'm flying. I'm still switching between the medium & large single flange for everyday...
You won't believe this, but not 15 minutes after I posted that I got an e-mail that I had a package in Receiving. One guess as to what was in it. It took a few tries to find the right gels. I've got the large double flange on now, but might switch to the large single flange for regular listening and save the doubles for flying. My D2 won't be delivered until Thursday or Friday, so all I have as a source right now is an old Sansa e140. Even so, the difference between...
The offer was too good to pass up, so I pulled the trigger on the X-5's just before the sale ended. I've received an order acknowledgment, but nothing on a shipping date yet.
Thanks for all the comments WRT the X-10 & X-5, it was very helpful. I'm leaning towards the X-5 now, to be driven by a Cowan D2. With the EQ capabilities of the D2 the X-5s should be a very good match. Best of all, the Klipsch sale means I'll only be spending a little more than I had originally budgeted, but getting a much better set of 'phones.
As soon as Sony adds SD expansion and FLAC support I'll consider it. Until then, it's not an option.
Has anyone tried both the X-10 and X-5? How big of a step down is it to the X-5?
