 You're not along with that opinion but I really think it's a matter of tuning as much as anything else. Some BA drivers just make it really hard to get the tonality right thanks to particular frequency response features (e.g. TWFK). I tend to like HiFiMan dynamics best for smooth, natural, realistic sound. The now-defunct RE272 is my favorite. I really like the biocellulose drivers in the high-end Sonys and VSonics but they tend to be a little strident (except for the...
 Sorry, I don't really bother with EQ these days. If I had to start somewhere it would be by evening out the mid-bass hump of the Pistons, I think that's their biggest weakness. There's a nice tutorial (IMO) here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/615417/how-to-equalize-your-headphones-advanced-tutorial-in-progress You might also want to check the long Piston discussion thread to see if anyone posted any experiences EQing them.   Well, the AX-35 certainly doesn't sacrifice anything...
 HiFiMan RE-400, Ultimate Ears 600, and Etymotic MC5  No, but it is smoother in the treble and does a much better job of avoiding sibilance.  Glad you like 3590! 
 I do plan to review it but I probably won't get my hands on it for another month or two. I'm a couple of months behind on another VSonic write-up :/.   VC02 is the closest in clarity, detail, etc but it might be too bright... it's certainly brighter and not as smooth as the RE0. Honestly, if there was such thing as a $50 RE0 it would be celebrated. The Astrotecs I've tried don't really fit the mold and the A63 is the only Fidue that comes close (and you've already tried...
 I appreciate it. Definitely need to keep an eye on the pricing.  They're on ebay also but the prices aren't lower from what I've seen.  Yeah, the Altone200 is at least average-sized for an earphone of that type, if not a little longer. Don't think it will fit under a helmet. 
 Thanks... updated all of the broken links. The minor price changes I usually ignore, especially when they require re-organizing the guide, just because the prices fluctuate (and sometimes differ by color) and are hard to keep up with. Will keep an eye on the S1 and vPulse. The vPulse for example hasn't been at $45 for more than a week. It's only a few third-party amazon sellers with that price. Will see if it price holds or goes back up the $70ish it's been at for a...
 That's a good point, they used to be the same price and then I just never updated it. Fixed it now. Hopefully the GR07 classic can just replace the GR07 on there at $99.  Unfortunately the original H100 is the only version I've tried.  Shure SE215? Fairly low-profile, great isolation, very good built quality, and good sound. I still like the IE6 better for comfort but the SE215 has replaceable cables and sounds a little better from what I remember of the IE6.
 No, not yet. 
 Not sure yet. I don't think the R3 is better than the RE-400... a little less mid-centric maybe, but also a bit dull on top.  Don't know about the pouch, but I agree with the rest :). Glad you're enjoying the Flux!   Not too worry, there's not many things I've heard in depth but haven't reviewed  
 The price . Other than that, don't know yet. They're still en route.   Good to know! So far I'm finding the bass of the KC06 satisfactory but if only the deep bass is raised with the KC06A that's not a bad thing.
