Ok, I bought them haha. I really couldn't pass up that offer. They should be here by the end of next week. . Hello the high-end IEM world. I'll also offer some comparisons with those headphones unamped.

I just picked up the 7th Gen 160 GB Classic due to my 2007 80 GB click wheel failing. Maybe, it just needs time to burn-in, like other audio equipment. However, at this point, I'm finding the SQ on the 7th Gen to be trebly, thinner, harsher, and lacking body and texture. My previous 80 GB was much fuller, engaging and warmer with a properly recorded and downloaded song.
I got the 7th Gen, presently, running continuously to burn it in. I'll get back in a few days with an update comparing the SQ from when it came straight out of the box.
Thanks a lot for your impressions Boomana. This years Classic is still a keeper for me. I can't quite understand the guys that are bashing its sound quality.
