“ Upon initial listening with these buds, I was rather unimpressed as I heard the rather familiar bloated mid-bass, sharp highs, and lack of mids that SKDY's old line carried. Then I realized that I still had my source EQ'd to Vocal Booster. Changed over to R&B and wow, night and day difference. The Merge are greatly influenced by an EQ, with the R&B setting completely bring the...” --KodaO
“I've seen the Fix around with the standard SKDY set ups in RadioShack and other stores, but they were usually an unattractive 79.99$. I found them at TJ Maxx (Apparently always has Uptowns for 40$) and decided to throw the 15$ they were asking for them and try them out. They are awesome basshead buds!!

“ i loved the sound quality. good for everything. not bloated bass, but if you threw on some bass-heavy music they would thump. yet if the music was not bass-heavy it was not intrusive. they look cool, and are made of a cool metal. iono what it is. get some complys for it. the wire is going. one of the buds is crackling in and out when the sire moves. ” --Skoobs
“First of all, I gave these a 3 star mostly for their price. At about 9 bucks they are about the cheapest headphones around. I mean, who is going to pass up a deal like that.

Sound quality If your looking at from an...” --Bassbanger101

I bought mine in Japan for ￥4500 or about $50 retail after listening to them after having read in Hi-Fi + magazine. I tried various earphones at the store but failed to find a pair that surpassed them at the price point. I prefer a crisp...” --gdbk

In FAD-speak: "Piano Forte IX archived to produce space expression which bring atmosphere of live hall and a sense of reality of concert hall which is difficult to be produced by conventional earphones. Piano Forte Ⅸ has a stainless body with a mirror-polished finish. Its classy look mirrors a high-precision sound that retains the trueness of the recorded source."
“ Hi Guys, this is my second review on a new earphone, just in time that my friend is looking for a good earphone, I was recommend him to look for this Final Audio Design brand. He loves detail, clarity type of earphone, and mostly enjoys vocal, acoustic music type. And hey!! He picked a final audio adagio V!! I didn’t expect this will happen, but well, i got his...” --SpringBiscuit
