This is OT, but what does going from standard Sansa software to Rock Box do to the sound on a traditional mp3? I use an e260 v2.

Anyone else think Phonak may be following this thread? I bet they are. If so, I would like to make a few suggestions for the v2 version: 1) Make the bass a little more colorful with some more reverberation/exaggeration. 2) Consider integrating the ear guides better like the IE8/Klipsch Custom-3. 3) Include fewer silicon tips and offer larger Complys and/or perhaps even some Shure medium Olives instead. 4) Continue to keep the price low, around $150 USD or less. 5)...
I really would hope that the IE8s sound much better as they are over 2x the price (in the USA). I am personally shocked the PAs are winning these comparisons...never would have thought that when I bought them. They just seemed like a really good value to me at under $150. As someone said earlier, perhaps the PAs are really good analytical phones while the IE8s are the "king" fun phones?
How do the PAs and NE-7s compare in the highs?
The Phonaks are cheaper and are regarded to be better.

Bass is pretty true, I like it, but definitively not everyone cup of tea, there lack of colouration feels really dull if you are use to ATH-ESW9, UE , UM2 kind of bass.

The supplied Comply tips are much better for me than the supplied Silicon tips, but neither are as good as the Shure Olives.

That is not to say I am no longer a fan. But I realized they need an amp in a noisy environment, at...
