But that was a few years ago; I don't know if they've improved since then.

Fostex might repair them. They make the CAL for creative and also have their own customisable colour version(though I can only find a japanese website for those).

How are they unamped? How are they for rap/hiphop? How is the clarity? How are the vocals? How is the instrument separation? Also do they fit completely around my ears? (I have small ears).

My pair arrived yesterday.
1) Unamped they sound good.
2) Decent enough extension on the Beastie Boys 'Hey Ladies'
3) Clarity good but they are burning in
4) Separation good but not as good as the SuperLux 668b's.
5) Vocals ok with Adele but need more time to compare
6) Yes. ideal for you, they have smallish over the ear cups that would fit over smaller ears well. For me they are slightly on the ear.

I'd also like to know how the vocals on it are

Vocals are great on this headphone. However, I do feel that the vocals do take a small (very minute) step back in the presentation. Coming from cans such as the ones on my sig, (read: RE0/R-50/SR80i)  it can become rather obvious,

 

However, it does not mean that they cant reproduce vocals well though. Very capable cans they are. I got them for SGD59 used. They have been getting the bulk of my head time ever since. :)

I have ATH ES700's recabled and with ESW9 pads and I still go back to my Cals regularily.

I've bought a few pairs for people as presents too and all well accepted.

Sorry, missed your comments.

I will switch to the CAL and listen to Adele again, get back to you...

..;.iTunes live Soho sounds good. Not great, not jaw dropping. Just...good. Bass, contralto notes sound good. Lots of detail to her voice.

Love them. The bass is good on these, deep. The clarity is Ok. Sound stage decent for closed phones. Very lively! Closed but still leak sound. Built is somewhat average.
