thanks so much


the m2's? not in my memory, they had a tiny vent, any dynamic driver IEM with a vent on the side generally doesn't have any driver flex, the worst offenders imo are the monster turbine range

My ADDIEM is very old, from the first production batch. They changed the jack at some later point. I prefer the ADDIEM to the SF4 but that's not to say it's a better earphone.

Joker, would be the rating of Fischer Eterna rev.1 higher that 7,7?

You weren't kidding!  They really do feel like gummy bears in your ears.  (Picked up a pair of RE-252s today)

Yes, but only by a tenth or two. I really didn't think the difference between them was major.

I don't joke! Hope they are comfortable - fit can really be hit or miss with those

Comfort is okay, can't wear them for longer than 30-45 minutes at a time.  Microphonics on the cable are so bad that listening on the go is not an option. And last but not least, they are a significant downgrade from the B2/DBA-02s I had recently.

Joker, would you rate FXT90 SQ equilavant to GR07?

 

Is FXT90 your first recommdation for an IEM within the < $200 range that is more musical, better dynamic range and warmer vs GR07?

 

Thank you!

oh and what are the glider tips made of? are they like a regular silicone tip that im used to, becuase i dont like the foam or flange tips?

i also wonder why they didnt make the ue600 and ue700 out of metal like the superfi4



they are made of foam..does anyone else think they look like a panzerfaust rocket?

The MC5 is better technically but personally I would take the UE600 any day. Much less boring with its mid-forward sound and wide soundstage.
