I agree these excel at piano, harpsichord, violin. etc.

So are they starting to grow on you Kiteki? A headfier mentioned a mod of pulling out the filters and using comply tips with them which puts them near the level of his $1000.00 dollar full size headphones. Sounds like an interesting mod.

Yes and no, can't decide on if I want to keep them or not yet.  I have comply tips and will remove the filters completely and report on that mod if I decide to keep them.

Looks nigh perfect for a 'neutral' earphone, missing a few peaks here an there, but wonderful. I honestly don't mind what a response looks like as this isn't an amp or source which should try its best to mimic the original signal. Earphones can do whatever they want.

I was thinking about buying a pair of FX500s down the road and trying the mod. I mean at the asking price and if it can make them sound that good. I think it would be worth a shot.

Probably already been asked, but what size are the foam tips?

I want to purchase some more, but want the exact same ones as they are the best fit for me.

Straight out of the box, with decored olives, I'm noticing the bass, yes, but also some harshness on the trebles, with distortion at the top. (It's worse with the stock tips, and with the RE0 biflanges.).

 

Interesting... those are my favorite alternative tips.

 

@Lee, I'm tired of 'trying' to like these IEM's.  Hopefully I'll have the chance to post a mini review before I pack them up.  The frequency response is okay, I don't like the elevated bass very much though.

Yeah too much bass can be a deal breaker for me as well. Luckily my FX700s bass settled down and more balanced after usage.

Hi, everyone! I've done some research for the past few days for a new pair of in ear. So I ended up here and I just found what I needed. I need to get a hand on these! Just tell me where to buy one!

 

1. I'm from Canada and I've searched on google everywhere but I can't seem to find a reseller.

 

2. I also tried http://www.seyo-shop.com/home.php but the website is down.

 

A little would be appreciated thx guys!

Just make sure he's an authorized dealer and then things should be good.

Worst comes to worst, get a Headfier like me to go down to Yodobashi or online shop, order and then pay the equivalent plus Paypal.
