Well the FX700 shares similarities in its wide soundstaging, and bass depth, but that's about it. They're a large step up in all other areas... treble clarity, extension, instrument layering, and space and air. They make the IE8's sound positively murky. They're not as relaxed or laid back a listen though, and if the music has harshness at all by nature, you can be sure the FX700's will convey it (although treble harshness is not remotely like the FX500's). They don't smooth things over like the IE8's tend to. They're the most detailed, revealing, punchy, dynamic driver IEM I've yet heard. If you like your sound signature dark and overly warm, these wouldn't be your cup o' tea. But I find they pair very well with the laid back nature of the Sony X.
