unfortunately for international buyers the Flux prices are ridiculous. and the HSA Crystal are now cheaper, $70-75 shipped

$10.71 shipping for me which brings the Uptowns up to $19.70. Would they still be worth purchasing at that price?

 

Seems kind of funny how much it costs to ship a set of IEMs from a US-based company.

 

Ouch. That's pretty much the same as the amazon price from a few weeks ago. Still a great earphone for the money but not as hot as I thought.

Hopefully that will change given time. It's still a fairly fresh release.

The Crystal is a very good deal at that price.

I currently have the GR07 MK2, and was looking to upgrade to the Westone 4R. I can get them for 320 dollars. Is the upgrade worth it, or should I hold off on getting them? I do really like the GR07, but a slightly more impactful low bass wouldn't be bad. I've also had the RE0, but that was almost too balanced, and lacked a little in the bass department.

Just thought I'd thank you for your reviews of the SteelSeries earphones. Up until now, I had predominantly been using my Hifiman RE-400's with a bass increase EQ'd in. The problem, of course, is that depending on what I am doing (or what playback program I'm using) equalization isn't always available. Based on your review the non-pro variant of the SteelSeries Flux earphone seemed to be just what I was looking for, and after receiving them today and having a listen, I can say that they were. :smile:

No argument here, it's a shame it never got more popular.

For me, EPH-100. Bass is definitely deep but it still sounds very good overall.

It's not much of an upgrade on the bass front - if you want more bass I would just get a GR07 Bass Edition instead. Cheaper and more likely to fill that particular need.

I actually think the Golden Crystal is one of the most overlooked IEMs I've heard in my time with portable audio.  At the time of the release, perhaps it was priced a little higher than many expected ($300-ish, right?), so it never caught on.. but even at that price, I remember it sounding quite impressive and competitive.  It had a pleasant coloring: a wide, u-shaped signature that had punchy, fun bass (that was focused in the lower-mid-bass & sub-bass focused).. a clean, articulate, tonally impressive midrange.. and a crisp, open, fast, sparkly treble.  It was surprisingly good compared to many IEMs I had heard around the time/price of its release.  Plus, the build was terrific.  I've moved onto "bigger & better" phones since then.. but it remains one of the few dynamic-driver universals I still crave to hear again.

     if you have it in your bank , go for eph-100 any day , they are better then xb90ex in every department but bass , man , xb90ex bass is the best i have heard to date , bad decay , not fast enough , but not dominating the overall sq , fun sounding , nothing spectacular but the bass .

They're now available for about $130.

Theoretically - yes, but I wouldn't recommend it. The pins are arranged wrong for the VC02 cable so the strain relief ends up perpendicular to the body of the TF10. It's all very awkward. Plus, the pins on the VSonic cable are slightly recessed which doesn't make for a great fit with the TF10 socket.

It's a bassier earphone than the 600/700/ER4 so it doesn't sound as tight and quick. For its signature it's quite good but I think other multi-BA sets sound more natural these days when it comes to bass - the SM64, for example.

Hey my JVC FXT90's just went out on me so I am in the market for headphones that are similar but under $50. Any recommendations? Thanks!
