Glad you liked your ever-elusive SB, swbf2cheater. Nice review, nice pics.
I'm one of those who dislike the stock tips due to poor isolation. Black olives solved that issue.
While I completely agree on the bling factor, the wide sounstage, the amp boost, I wouldn't go as far to say that SB is the "Titan of the IEM world" although SB are definitely better than the M1.
