I know, it's nuts. And I know it should not be that way. But as you say, your ears do the reacting. Try as I might to say, well, those $400 IEMs are kicking the $130 IEM's butt, I can't. It is pretty close, but the clarity of the PFEs is the critical differentiator for me. All other factors aside, it comes down to that. Don't know about Deal of the Century, but a very good deal it is. And for the first time, I could actually understand the lyrics in a couple of songs I've been listening to for 30 years!

Again, I am going to keep the W3s. Between the two IEMs, I am as happy as a pig in ____!
Yup these really are a pleasure to put on, have had them on almost to the point of exhaustion! Been using the E5 on occasion too and I'm struggling to fathom if (at least for an IEM) it can get better than this!

Other than the volume deficiency there is very little these do wrong. I would agree that vocals are a dream, so open, natural and buttery smooth. Equally impressive is how busy passages are handled so effortlessly, the same as you would expect from any decent full-sized can.

Just need to buy a stockpile of T130s now though it's a shame no one on ebay seems to have any.

Thanks - I will definately give impressions, but they won't be as useful as others here because I haven't heard and don't own the W3s or IE8s.

Feel the same way, Phonaks pose as a dream come true. Hard to believe that there might be a better headphone around...To Phonak owners this is a must listen to track via the Phonaks (Andy McKee - Rylynn - Acoustic Guitar - CANdYRAT Records) Copy and Paste to the youtube search bar. Does it sound like he's sitting in front of you or what? Enjoy...

Listen to some of this kid's songs. If I were to describe him, and stay on topic, it would have to be that this kid is the "Phonak Audeo" of the guitarist world...so young but SOOOOOO GOOD!!!!

Which song? Umm...Top of the World is really nice. And Jump as well, although Jump was recorded kinda funky, so the sound wasn't recorded as nice as all the other ones, but still a cool song...I'm still going through all of them myself lol, there's almost 150 videos of the kid! A true prodigy for sure.
