I just recieved the new e-q5
just played for 15 minutes and the sound is in one word ( Amazing )
It has Excellent Bass Extension and Transparency I used the Silicon Medium ear-tips that it came with
so the treble is just right meaning the way it suppose to sound not sibilant at all ( it is indeed comforting)
one thing I notice is that the SoundStage tends to change depending on the which song is being played maybe I guess that it is showing its accuracy (Airiness)
male and female voices have weight and silkiness to it meaning that they don't sound tinny but it provides impact
Instruments really does sound immersive with incredible Timbre (Smoothness) it is not fatiguing at all
Bass has excellent texture i would say a slight better than my FA-A1
It does not come with any case or pouch just the aluminum case
However I do not own the E-Q7 so I really can't compare with that.....
btw I was listening these iems with my iPhone 4 with MP3 320kbps vbr
I will try to compare with my other iems later....
