I remember seeing CK100 in a store priced around US$500 or so few weeks ago, not really more competitive than any other places when it comes to AT.

The e-Q7 alone is S$458, you're probably better off asking pricejapan for a price quote.

I only auditioned SP1 for a short while and no longer have it in my possession, so I can't post a review of it. I also heard that it will be discontinued soon and probably going to be replaced by a new model. Hopefully I will be able to review it when it hits the market.

Anyway, Sherwood SE-777 has been added.

A small update on the format and I thought I'll give it a bump.

Interesting that the Fischer Audio Eterna gets 4.75 in overall SQ and the Ortofon e-Q7 only gets a 4.65, damn I just ordered the e-Q7s they cost like 4 times as much

They don't come in red yet, at least I win there

Eterna is rated high for a specific reason - fun and engaging above everything else. That kind of sound signature might not be for everyone. You can read the in-depth review for detail.

ClieOS - is the Phonak Audeo PFE on your list of phones to review? If so, when might we expect it? I am seriously considering this one. It has an interesting price-point.

I already have the PFE121 with me now, but will review CKS70 first. My estimation is within the next two weeks, most likely later next week.

Im looking forward to review of phonak, and especially how it goes compared to re0 and etymotic

Something interesting I noticed yesterday after listening to my Eterna for the first time in a week after receiving the Westone 2, the Eterna really seem to hold up compared to the W2. Yes, the W2 is less coloured, but I'm not hearing the huge difference I was expecting after being used to the W2. I mean, I wasn't missing much detail that was there with the W2 in the big picture. The W2 retails at a bit less than $200 more than the Eternas price. I think what I'm noticing here is the law of diminishing returns in effect, and the Eterna being a good value. I thought people must be crazy to prefer their Eterna to the IE8, which is a top tier IEM, but I think I'm seeing why now.
Yes, of course, the W2 is better and more accurate and a bit clearer, just nowhere near the difference I was expecting compared to how something $50 can blow stock buds out of the water. I love the W2, and personally it has the perfect bass, so while I can easily listen to the Eterna and love it to death even after having the W2, I've found that I like an ever so slightly slightly bass-light and otherwise neutral sound sig, and that is why the W2 is still a keeper.
This isn't intended to be an Eterna ad, rather simply my recent experience with the law of diminishing returns. Would I take the Eterna over the W2? No, because I have found the sound signature that is perfect for me in the W2, and the W2 is a class above. I'm just pointing out the fact that your dollar can go a long ways nowadays with all these value options out there.

ClieOS: Any ETA on the CKS70 review? Seeing as you like the Eterna I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on the differences between these seemingly very similar IEMs.

I don't have any Etymotic worthy to do a direct comparison to PFE atm. I can compare my old ER6i to PFE but it probably only going to result in PFE winning in pretty much all aspects except for isolation. I do have plan to review ER4P before the end of the year and perhaps MC5 when it hits the market but there will be some waiting b/w now and then.

ETA should be later this week or early next.
