xba-3's sound stage is not big enough , every thing else is nice , bass is good , decay is acceptable , highs are nice , okay spark , mids are a bit washed off but still good enough , brainwavz b2 will do , may lack some rumble in bass region , but , man , they are fast , decay is good , i dont remember much about the sound stage . and a turn off for me is the j cable from xba-3 , they are okay , but a y cable would have been nice , like xba-30 . or grab a xba-h1 if you can , and tell us how you like it .
Brainwavz b2 have less bass than phonak audeo ? I thought that they have more :( .
Sony XBA-H1 aren't avaiable yet ;).
I had etymotic HF5 for few days. Soundstage not big as in audeo and sound was just flat, no fun.
I'am using ibasso D3 as AMP and DAC, galaxy s3 and ipod touch 2g as players.
