Unique Melody Mason:  Selling my UM Mason, with average usage hours (it's been my daily IEM since June). It is in excellent condition, both cosmetically and functionally. I'm selling because other gear has made this IEM unnecessary, and I could really use the funds for other planned gear. It comes with all original accessories, protective case, and most packaging except for one of the black inner sleeves. The outer box tore somewhat upon opening, but otherwise everything...
Massdrop TH-X00:  Selling my very lightly used TH-X00 (SN# 13XX- very early 1300's). It is in like new condition, both cosmetically and functionally, having been used for less than a month... not even broken in. I'm selling because its sound signature is just not my cup o' tea, and I could really use the funds for other planned items to pick up. It comes with all original accessories, protective case, and packaging. Price includes Paypal / shipping for continental US...
 Good to hear your replacement QP1R is much better. The scroll wheel on mine is just as you described for your first one, essentially unusable. So I'm particularly happy to hear that there is variation toward the better. You've just convinced me to get a replacement for mine as well!
You should be thankful it's $899 now instead of the originally slated $1299!! Think that's possibly $400 to cable upgrade... 
Hey Shigzeo- thanks for starting the Jupiter specific thread. I'm a happy new owner of a pair as well. I'm running it with the Questyle QP1R. Very nice match. I do hear a touch of hiss as you mention, but once the music begins it's no big deal!     I find the Jupiter very 'connected', and pretty complete across the board. Wonderful level of detail, no harshness at all, and it really draws one into whatever music being listened to.    A buddy of mine in town just got...
 Yeah it's great that the price came down from $1299. It really helps save funds for other gear. The Jupiter sounds fantastic out of every source I've tried it with, from the iPhone 6+, to ZX2, up to the QP1R or course. It sounds best out of the Questyle, but the ZX2 does totally fine by it too. The Jupiter doesn't require crazy power levels and any of these sources drive it totally fine. 
Coming from ZX2 / UM Mason, I just sort of decided spur of the moment to try the QP1R & Campfire Audio Jupiter... I thought it would be hard to improve on the ZX2/Mason, but it's happened....      
Just got a QP1R this past weekend. I've been comparing it to the ZX2 over the past several days, and sonically it's crazy how much more open and dynamic it is than the Sony (and this is with the ZX2 running the increased volume output trick, which gives it more clarity and range). I really did not expect that. I find it hard to choose between them though because with how great the Questyle is with its sound, the Sony is that good aesthetically (and the QP1R is that much...
 I was surprised to hear it the way I do actually... I saw the measurements for the TH-X00 from another site, which looked pretty darn flat, so the amount of mid-bass caught me buy surprise. I think that is what's giving it such a sense of heavy bass. To me it sounds much more elevated there than the graph would suggest. Oh well!  
I'm using a Sony ZX2 with the output bumped up via the sound enhancement disabling trick. It provides healthy drive and power this way... But the sound is just too dark. And I've never heard the ZX2 sound dark with any other phone. FWIW it's also dark in the same way out of several laptops we have. (Two Macs and a PC).
