Just got the Xcape IE today and WOW. $80 is definitely a good deal. These sound what I expected $80 headphones to sound like when I first got started in my headphone obsession...before I knew better :P They are really, really good for the money. They are the best phones I've heard yet in terms of the overall tonal balance being what I perceive as natural or neutral; they make my SM3 sound overly warm and a bit fuzzy-feeling. That's DEFINITELY NOT saying they are superior to the SM3 SQ-wise, the SM3 are clearly superior in terms of detail, resolution, soundstage size, and coherence, but the Xcape IE are no slouch at all in any department, ESPECIALLY for $80. Best bang/buck SQ wise I have heard yet, the almighty MP8320 aside. And this is with about an hour of burn in...allegedly they need 100? I am a VERY happy customer. Major props to lendmeurears for making these available.

These things are awesome. I just had to say it again. Really balanced but still really fun. I've only had them for three hours and I already know that these will become a middle ground reference point against which I test all other phones for basic capabilities.

O.O Wherever that was, you should for sure post it in the deals thread.

Out of curiosity, does anyone here know what rating (0 to 10) that l Joker l  has given to the Xcape IE --- just solely on the sheer basis of Sound Quality, alone?

OK, thank you very much, that's very encouraging, as I am currently awaiting my set of IEs in the mail right now, having traded with someone here my RE0s for them.

Very cool. Sounds like the answer I was both hoping and expecting to receive.

i have both IE and xcited and from what i am hearing about xcited is the opposite, yeah i agree to you on build quality. maybe you've got a defective unit.

post #239 of 258

I am thinking about buying IE or maybe Xcited, not sure yet...I want to know how is the build quality on the newer batches. I know there's been lots of problems with the older ones and would like to know have they improved build quality? Can someone who bought these in the past couple of months answer this?

i've got my IE and Xcited more than a year ago and they are still in perfect condition although I dont use them lately because of GR07. i think they already solved the build quality problem on the new batches.
