I'm kinda having a laugh at the descriptions of the Moto X having weak bass.  Not that I'd argue the case.  It's just that I'm currently using the Shure SE846s with it.  These 'phones, to me (a long time Ety guy), are bass monsters.  Too much bass for me and not enough top end when not equalized.  I've got the balanced filters in the 'phones, no external amp hooked up, and have set the freakin' eq to brilliant treble.  Yeah, still warm and punchy.  This setup seems to go...
Maybe I'll be the test subject...
I think you probably made the right choice.   Have you seen videos on youtube where people are making their own custom tips from mold-able plastic?  It looks fairly easy and it's cheap.  How it turns out, I don't know...
That sounds just about perfect to me!     I'm a fan of Bad Company, too.  Paul Rodgers has one of the best rock'n'roll voices of them all.
Yeah, it could maybe use a question mark in the title.
Yes, I imagine it will be quite different.  Long ago, I owned a set of UM2s and loved the bass thump they were able to deliver.  But I could just never coax enough detail out of them and much preferred the Etys.  I could equalize the Etys like a madman and make them get sorta close to the UM2-style bass, but never truly give it as much authority.  I'm hoping/expecting the 846 to give me the sound I want, or something really close to it.  I read up on a lot of other...
I'm soooo disappointed, hahaha.  When I read what you were originally ordering, I couldn't wait to hear how it turned out.  I imagine you wound up making the wiser choice here, but I was just so excited!  It was like watching a stuntman (no! a daredevil!) attempt a harrowing trick for the first time!  What would happen?!   But yes, probably a good choice to step back from the fiery pit of robotic shark-lions that you were about to try to jump over... I hope you get many...
So, just yesterday I ordered these.  The steep price made me instantly feel a twinge of regret.  Right away!  Maybe it was a stab.  Ahhh!  Oh well, hopefully their performance soothes it away.  Went with the 3-day shipping, so it won't be long.   I have long been satisfied with my my formerly high-end (now midrange?) gear.  Minibox E+, Ety ER-4P IEMs (with the S switch and bass boost on, usually), and a pair of Beyer DT880 full-sizers.  I was determined to be satisfied...
It looks like the litigation has begun.  Klipsch is suing.   http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-57576411-38/monoprice-a-tech-consumers-best-friend-or-a-copycat/
What CNet says is this:   "Our only hesitation about the Monoprice 9774 speaker system is an ethical one. There's no denying these speakers feel like knockoff versions of the Energy system, and we have reservations about recommending a product that, at least in lay terms, feels like it ripped off the design and engineering work of another company. Monoprice has confirmed that it has not licensed the design from Energy, but hasn't explained exactly how the products...
