The branded audio on smart phones is mostly just marketing hype. I had a Win8 phone that includes "Beats Audio" - as far as I could tell it was just an equalizer preset to boost the bass & treble. Luckily, I didn't pay extra for it (I didn't even know it had it until the phone was delivered). I never used it. According to the Cnet review I saw, the H/K M8 includes different speakers, a bunch of useless software and a pair of H/K AE model IEMs. I think you would be...
What does "not that great" really mean? What did you feel was lacking? You could just move up the line to the AD700X or AD900X.
I need to publically eat some crow - and I do it gladly... At the urging of Magick Man, I reluctantly obtained George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones. I normally avoid Fantasy books like the Black Plague (pun intended), but I have to say this was a GREAT story. There are excellent characters, lots of intrigue and no stupid elvish singing. I listened to the audiobook version read by Roy Dotrice, who's voices was perfect for this story.
That's an easy one - I am addicted to Diet Coke. Every day on the way to work, I stop at the corner 7-11 for 44 ounces of icy goodness. I am also a connoisseur of soda fountains. I can tell the difference between the soda from my 7-11 and the 7-11 from the other side of town. I can also tell a 7-11 soda from a Stop n' Go soda. If they accidentally load the caffeine-free Diet Coke into the regular Diet Coke, I bust them after 1 sip. I can tell Diet Coke from Regular...

lol - I think I would probably pass on all the IEMs I saw on that site and spend the $60 on a nice wireless mouse, some USB flash drives or some printer ink...
Maybe the Takstar Pro 80? I have never heard either one, but those two are often compared.
I wear glasses. I think it really depends on the entire ear-head-glasses-headphones system interaction. There seem to be a lot of variables - the thickness, shape & diameter of the pads, the clamping pressure, how the cup rotates, the stiffness of the pads and your eyeglass frames, etc, etc. One of the rather annoying things is when the headphones make the eyeglasses sit slightly askew. I have progressive lenses, and if the glasses aren't sitting right, it messes with...
I have fond memories of push-starting a friend's X1/9 every time it would strand him - which seemed to be about once a week...
