Sorry to bother, where do I find the definitions forum?

There is a 'Describing Sound' Glossary here if that's what you're looking for: http://www.head-fi.org/a/describing-sound-a-glossary

Looking for a new IEM to use with my phone, since that's likely to be my primary source for on the go listening from this point forward.  I really enjoy my JVC FXT90s, but they don't have a mic and while they sound quite fine running through the amp hooked to my PC, they sound a bit piercing and hot in the treble region on my Galaxy S3.  It takes heavy EQing to make them sound suitable.

 

Would the RHA MA750 be a better fit, perhaps?  I've been eyeing those for a little while now.

Yeah, sounds like the MA750i would be a better fit for you - less overall treble energy than the FXT90. Less midrange presence, as well, but not in a bad way.

 

The center button on the remote should work with the S3 even though the volume control won't.

A higher quality iTunes could be on its way this year, June infact!

Yes... there was a planned site upgrade (additional functionality) and something went wrong :(. Resource use went through the roof. It is temporarily offline until the problem is resolved (hopefully that will happen today).

rawrster, what is your favorite source and amp?

Tell you what, all earphones I bought according to joker's favorites have brought joy; earphones outside his recommendation like audio technica's ath-im70 and sony's xba-30 are complete disappointment (Except xiaomi piston!). In joker I trust!

I wasn't a fan of the XBA-3, even chose to pass on reviewing it. Glad my reviews have been useful!

Joker, May I ask if you heard the Astrotec Am-900's? I saw the Am-800 review and was looking around at pricing and found them.

 

As for the Fidue, would there be any way to get rid of the sharp edges? Not sure how exactly as sand paper just seems to be a bad idea. =P

It is sad that anything beyond Sony's MH1 line are dookies. You should save your quality time and limit your review to 8-10 ranges earphones, sir! But it'd be entertaining if you could review some badly hyped earphones as well.
