 Correct, Flux is like an inverted HF5. Similar detail, similar shape, similar fit, similar overall sound; but where the HF5 have slightly recessed bass and highs, the Flux have slightly forward bass and highs. I personally prefer the Flux for most music.
 I have both the Flux and the VSD1S. They're very different, and both are excellent. The VSD1S has more recessed (but still clean) treble, a slightly wider sound stage, more bass (still clean and not muddy), and very smooth and detailed mids. The Flux has more treble detail (while still not harsh or sibilant), still a very wide sound stage (just not up to Vsonic's), a slightly recessed midrange, and a slight V-shape signature even though the bass hits a bit "lightly". If...

This is kind of a silly question. You've already waited a while, just wait some more. In a week you'll have your decision made for you.
You can always shop for closed-type, circumaural full sized headphones. Something like Incase Sonic comes to mind.
The crackling is just the sound of the needle picking up scratches or other defects on the record surface.

Well, 2 of those members are banned I believe....
