I only heard the XBA-1 briefly. It seemed good, I liked the signature better than that of the XBA-04, but not sure where it would rate following proper long-term listening tests.

The bass is very nice also, sounds more natural and can feel more air movement than BA style bass.

 

I still have my original red one with copper memory wire wink.gif. Terrible cable noise on that old thing but it sounds great.

Only the J3. I wasn't overly impressed with it.

Thanks. The EX1000 has that headphone-like out-of-the-head presentation that's so different from most IEMs out there. The K3003 is more intimate though it has excellent depth and width still. Signature-wise the K3003 has more bass (esp. mid-bass), similar midrange presence, and smoother lower treble (where the EX1000 has some emphasis). I also thought the K3003 had very good extension whereas the EX1000 didn't impress me in that regard.

Can't think of anything I'd rather listen to for $79 but it's not quite as far ahead of the competition as it once was.

post #6890 of 16802

are there some alternatives to the fxt90, with more isolation?

post #6891 of 16802

id America Spark

********************

i just received my id America Sparks today.

unfortunately they don't seem to support my Samsung Galaxy S.

the "Play/Pause" button has to remain being pressed for them

to sound good.

i wrapped a rubber band around it so that it would remain pressed down,

and i just wanted to try and ask if anyone know of a better solution?

and would it be likely that the button will break since it is being pressed down

all the time?

such a shame that this wonderful set of phones has this compatibility issue.

they sound really good, just as i hoped.

as good as my Klipsch Image S4 without the harshness.

thanks

Have you tried the FXT90 with other tips like Sony Hybrids?

The ergonomic FXT90 fits perfectly for me, so isolation is actually very good for me

That's really weird.... a normal IEM should play normally regardless of the compability of the buttons....

Usually if the buttons are incompatible, the buttons just don't work... it shouldn't effect the playback of the phone... 

 

Joker, what other IEM's has similar cable like the FXT90? I really really like them... it's....really soft and memory free...

I believe the word I'm looking for is flexible... you can shape it however you like, it just doesn't fight... It's even more flexible than the CK10 cable

I never found a cable I like as much as this...

AKG K3003i ...... Ummm! i'm thinking in the Vsonic GR08  wink_face.gif

It's rare for heavy bass not to affect the rest of the spectrum but if you're okay ordering internationally there's a number of choices depending on the exact signature you want - Fischer Eterna and Consonance, Xears TD-III, id America Spark, Soundmagic E10, etc. 

 

Thank you for the help. OK I'm thinking of getting the VR06. It's cheaper than the id American Sparks since it has free shipping to Canada. The Spark will cost me an extra $18 to get it to ship to Canada. The E10 looks like it has good value but I'm willing to spend a bit more for going up a tier. Is there a big difference between the E10 and sparks or VR60?

I can't wait to hear about the GR08...I think there's a chance it will be neck-and-neck with the UM Merlin for my next major purchase.

The GR08 will be sold at roughly USD 500.

What's your source?

There were rumors about a price of around $320...

post #6899 of 16802

Didn't ClieOS report it was going to be $320 USD?
