Is it true that the database library can only hold 8,000 songs, even though a 128GB memory card could hold much more?

I now see that the Fostex TH-X00 are rated at 94db sensitivity,...
I'd be more inclined to buy these if they were higher impedance. I have no intention of ever taking phones like these on the go, and I can barely crack the volume knob on my desktop amps when using low impedance phones.
The e18 routinely sells for $159 at online retailers, so you're basically getting the ex1 for an extra $20. The ex1 sells for $69 everywhere, so you're saving about $50 on this deal.
