Just a heads up, GWagon, from what I can tell, Dream Earz will ship to the UK. Nulliverse reviewed the 5X here. Sucks about those import taxes. Maybe there's a way to finesse the paperwork to reduce the fees?
My 7X have been made (Mitch sent a pic, they look great). I should have them in-hand by the end of the week.
Edit: I'll just add that I totally get the attraction to the 8.A. Everything written about them is glowing and build quality looks top notch.
I look forward to hearing your impressions. If they have the mids of the ES5 but with a quicker and punchier bass then it will be very tempting despite the import tax.
The Heir Audio 8.A alone cost £1059 (~$1696) in the UK without the cost of impressions. They kill you with taxes here either way.
