nah the vendor only gives out credit. I guess I'll take the loss, good lesson for being dumb.

Hey guys, has anybody tried the new XB920? They look really pretty, but I'm afraid they are just going to be an XB900 with a detachable cable.

 

Anyway, you single guys should be glad. Now I can't even go out and look at headphones without getting that evil stare from my wife. :D

Probably either the JH16pro or the Heir 8.A, personally I find the 8.A to be slightly more "rich" and "thick" sounding, makes the JH16pro feel slightly thin in comparison, but by all accounts both have amazing sub-bass and should do great for R&B.

hmmmm my budget is around $600-$700, cosmic ears BA5 looks interesting for me :) but i want a sub-bass rumble, for rnb, im thinking of alclair Crankmaster but still looking for the best CIEM with sub-bass rumble

BA5 isn't released yet, just planned. If you want big subbass you probably want to look at a hybrid with a dynamic driver for bass instead of a pure BA model, hence my recommendation for the HY3XB. Unfortunately the HY5 is also not released yet.

I would suggest this too. I don't exactly find bass from BA to be satisfying, so something like a hybrid would be a good choice. Cosmic Ears just happens to be the best bang for the buck FWIR

CIEM, but I guess you could get a C5 reshelled...

My bad, missed the "c".  In that case, I personally would go all the way for the Unique Melody Merlin.

I've just picked up the Skullcandy Crusher. It's not half as bad as its predecessor, the Skullcrusher. At full bass level, the earcups really rattle, which is quite an experience. Actual bass quantity seems to be about on par with a Crossfade LP2, but the Sensation55 driver does all it can to give the impression that it is an extreme bass headphone.

Well, you are getting vibration-made bass. I think if that is a pro or con depends on user themselves.
