Never went much for lossless before, but figured for a select few (Beatles, Sinatra, Stones, et al) it would be worth it...now.
Wow, really? You're converting some favourites to FLAC? Which dap will you use the files with? The Sony, Zune and iPod Touch don't support FLAC, I don't think.

All this has lead me to buy two pair, one for me and one for a friend.

Hope they live up to the reviews.

Now--what do I do with my almost-new Images that these supposedly trump??

I would be happy to PM you an address where the Images will be well received by a pair of warm-loving-ears.

I'm supposed to pick up mine from the local post office tomorrow morning. I'll be doing a comparison review against the phones I currently use, including the Sensas, Ety ER-4P/S, KSC-75, and my Grados.

Look for it an a couple of weeks time when I've had enough listening time with a variety of the music I listen to.

This is my first new earphone purchase in close to two years, so I feel a little like I did the first time I bought the ER-6i 4 years ago and was on my way home waiting to give them a listen.

Comparison against the KSC75? Looking forward to that

Well, the 30% Live cashback and my one-day-before-expiration, 10%-off ebay coupon proved too persuasive to resist...Consider me another Westone 3 victim. Can't wait to get my ears around 'em!

Time to post more stuff for sale...

The 30% cashback was enough to persuade me. I didn't find out about the 10%-off ebay coupon until after I purchased the earphones though... makes me kindof sad that I missed out on $40 :'(

Ha...I actually never fathomed I'd be treating myself to such tippy-top-of-the-line IEMs -- and so soon after their release -- but that's what this place does to people, I suppose. It renders us insane.

You guys are killing me! I feel like I should pull the trigger on a set of these, now.

Maybe I should get them for my wife for Christmas, and have a listen or two when they're not in use.

Stupid 10% ebay coupon doesn't apply unless you get it sent specifically to you.... *sigh*

Oh yeah, it completely renders us insane. But at least here... our insanity is celebrated. In fact, it seems almost normal to whip out a credit card for a pair or earphones I had no intention of buying only a few minutes before

You wont regret this - they will make you give up your SA6 as well as the X10 you already sold me LD
