I wasn't looking to buy, but I popped into two local HMV's today and it's the x5's that are £99.

Wierd.

Even the X5's at £99 aren't bad value tho?

Long time reader, first time poster!

I checked in the Guildford branch on Saturday afternoon but they didn't stock them. Fortunately my wife was at the Westfield shopping centre so I asked her to look. They had 4 pairs of X5's left for £79.99 so she picked up one for me.

Very impressed indeed with the sound quality, very open, clear & punchy. Huge improvement on my e2c's and cx300s!

Was very close to going for the S4's after reading the threads here for the last few months, but at that price I couldn't resist.

Thanks very much to Murfy for the thread.

Buttles, Glad you're enjoying the X5s. Try putting some Shure Olives on them, it opened up the mids for me, cleaned up the bass even more and still kept it punchy, and they're more comfortable than the oval gels.

HMV Meadowhall didn't receive some for me. Had to take a refund instead.

Thanks for the advice Ucrags.

Apologies for the lack of knowledge here (still finding my feet in this wonderful IEM world!) but are the Shure Olives the memory foam sleeves?

I've got some Shure e2c's which came with the cream/yellow coloured foam sleeves. Are the olives a better version of them?

:O Thanks for mentioning this sale! I have to go in tomorrow and buy myself a pair of X10s...or should I go for the X5s? (I'll look and try and find them anyway, hope they're there)

Hope your luckier than me.

When I heard of this I contacted the nearest branch only to find they weren't doing them and wouldn't arrange for a delivery from another branch.
Another miss for me, after I thought I was getting a pair of the $99 triple fis as well only to find the original buyer changed his mind and sold them to someone locally. No luck!

If only I lived further south where I could travel to other branches without clocking up hundreds of miles.

The Shure Olives are the black foamies.

Here are a few links of what they look like:
