Followed your giude and bought the AD700 + Turtle Beach DSS2 with Bassboost. The sound coming out of this combo is just bloody insane.
The DSS2 really help the AD700 to fill in a lot of weight to the sound.
Have a pair SM3 in great shape and would love to trade for a pair FX700. I´ve been having balanced amateurs IEM like forever and would like to make a switch to the other side for a change
Send me a PM if youre interested
I have the Sony X, Clip, Iphone 4, Ipad 2 and the best sounding is the X followed by the Iphone 4, Clip, Ipad 2 when paired with the SM3. And about those RMMA graphs i dont think they reflect much of real world performance just my 2 cents
I dont believe in burnin but i do believe in bad seal, bad fitting, and difficulties of finding suitable settings and tips that most users have to experience in their first week of a new purchase .... may be thats the whole mystery of it ? Even if its there are such things as burnin then i dont think pinknoise is really necessary for in-ear, its just your ears adapting to the new sound :)
