You must like treble! I find even with the foams the high end is too much.

Okay, one thing I want to note in the early stages at this point (I don't want to discuss too much about the audio qualities before a little more burn in takes place)-
I really am blown away by the level of dynamics these maintain at lower listening volumes. Only the Ultrasone 780's are this satisfying down low like this. This is a great quality since it'll encourage me to keep it down.
The size of the soundstage is definitely a bit smaller with the FX500's, but not much at all. By comparison, I find it larger than with the Denon C700's, Turbines, or Atrios. It's second only to the IE8's. And I kind of hesitate to give a very concrete answer at this point because I know they may still be evolving through burn in since this only the second full day I've had them. I was just doing direct back to back comparing with the IE8's to give you a good answer, and just now tonight I found it much closer than I remember in comparing them last night. So, more to come.........
