Speaking of which, so far I feel reasonably confident recommending these IEMs for lovers of the e-Q7 who are looking for an upgrade in the same veign. Likewise also for CK10 lovers who strive for slightly better timbre and a bit more low end. But that's about it for now. And of course the FAD's hefty price tag doesn't mean that they are 5 times better than the aforementioned phones. But neither have these been 10 times better than the Soundmagic PL30, at least not to my ears.
It's like you are referring specifically to me! I would like to hear these one day but without buying them as my wallet just said no and ran away. Maybe if I ever go to Japan one day :)
