I ran across these the other day and I don't recall seeing these posted on this thread:   FA-011 Japan Limited Edition - 15,800 yen = $205 US     http://musicaacoustics.shop-pro.jp/?pid=37260284   http://musicaacoustics.jp/products/fischeraudio
My bad. I wasn't saying to buy from that source. I apologize for not checking the feedback. I bought mine refurbished for $30 but I can't recall the seller. I was just pointing out that you can find them for much cheaper than $60. The links I posted were the first two to come up and I expected the OP to do his own searching. I was just trying to save the OP some money.   How about...
They are even better for $25 (off ebay from Hong Kong if you don't mind waiting)   http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-Original-In-Ear-Headphone-iPhone-4-iPod-Touch-Remote-and-Mic-MA850G-B-/280799354315?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories&hash=item4160f21dcb   Or $40 shipped from San Francisco:   http://www.ebay.com/itm/apple-in-ear-headphones-remote-and-mic-ma850g-b-/330661198586?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories&hash=item4cfcf17afa   I bought a pair of refurbished...
That would work too. My only fear is that as I upgrade my source and amp that I might run in to darker, warmer link in the chain and I might appreciate the extra sparkle. I guess you can always remove/replace it. Do you know what that blue thing (capacitor?) is on the back of the driver and why it is there?    
My Fa-011s had a lot of clamping force when I got them. I tried bending the metal bands as show in the following illustration. I also pulled out the foam in front of the drivers to give my ears more room. They are now some of the most comfortable headphones I have worn. Regarding the treble I use one of these:   http://www.ebay.com/itm/Etymotic-ER4P-ER4S-3-5MM-plug-resistor-adaptor-/270792974191?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f0c84df6f#ht_1792wt_1141   It...
I took the foam out to give my ears more room and they are very comfortable. They were a little brighter but sound great as long as you are listening to well recorded material. When I listen to more mainstream / lower quality recordings (Bright or Sibilant) I use a 75 Ohm adapter and it tames down the highs a bit. I think it depend a lot on your source also. The headphones sound brighter amped with my CMoy BB from a line out of my CD Player. However straight out of my LG...
Much appreciated.    
Just picked these up yesterday for $27 because I saw they were being dropped by the store where I shop. I had seen these headphones multiple times at the store and I would have never considered them without the impressions posted here. It is a shame because after 3 hours of burn-in, I listened to them last night and they compare well to my FA-011s (my only other decent cans). So far the mids seem to be more forward than any headphones I have heard (not many). These seem...
I had clamping force issues when I received my FA-011s. I just bent the metal bands on the top and I can wear them for hours now. The following image for Hifiman headphones is a great illustration of how to do it. Of course due to the difference in design the metal bands will never touch your head on the FA-011s but the arrows still show the best way to bend them to lessen clamping force.      
They fit similarly but the FXC51 are less bulbous. The cable exits the cylinder almost straight down and the strain relief limits how far they can go in your ear. However in my ears at that point they have already "hit bottom" and can't go any farther anyway.
