 I think there's a bunch of stuff missing but I don't have those two. I did write up reviews for a couple of others but just haven't found the time to proof and post them. Nothing too interesting, just stuff that came across my desk - UE 4000, Harman CL, etc. 
 Not having tried the Fidelio X1 and not hating any of the sets you hated, I'm not sure I can be of any help. I'm trying to think of smooth/non-bright earphones that have enhanced sub-bass but not mid-bass and I'm coming up short. EarSonics SM64 is probably the closest, but it's not exactly a bass monster.  Never liked the XBA-3 but the DN-2000 is excellent for what it is, minus the size/weight.   DN-2000 is a little v/u-shaped, probably not a great fit for you. Minus the...
 Wish it was that easy but I don't have either earphone nor spare time. I stopped updating the review queue on the front page of this thread because I don't think anyone really looks at it, but there are so many new and interesting earphones on the market every week that it's impossible to keep up.
 It's a little too v-shaped IMO. Makes even the DUNU DN-1000 sound balanced in comparison. 
Thanks, and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!  Added a review of the variable-tuning Rock Jaw Alfa Genus while I'm at it.   
 If you were satisfied with the bass of the Xcape they should all be fine except maybe the Havi. The MH1C and SE215 have more bass than the Flux and VSonics, if you're worried about that.
 Haven't tried the FX850 but the A83 and SM64 are both solid options.The A83 is a lot more efficient but you shouldn't have any problems driving either (unless you want ear-splitting volumes straight out of your iPhone, which the SM64 won't do).
  They're certainly up there in soundstage size for an IEM. The 7550 is warmer than the other two and might be a better match for what you're after, both tonally and in note thickness, but the extra treble of the EX1000 gives it a slight edge in airiness and soundstaging. In either case they're neither thin nor thick-sounding, really. If you compare them to a set of Beats Tours 2.0s or an RHA T10i both will sound thin, but if you compare them a VSonic VC1000 or Rock-It...
 DN-23 is warm and smooth but it won't really have the clarity you're used to with the Xcape Full review here: Something like a Shure SE215, SteelSeries Flux In-Ear, or Sony MH1C will get you closer to Xcape performance level and sound signature, and if you want to switch things up you have even more good options, like the VSonic VSD3S and Havi B3 ProI.
