I  don't know, it seems you need to use them for a long time for this to occur.


And I'm not even sure it's related to moisture . I have an other theory: the metallic shell contract depending of temperature, preventing the driver from moving. I  tried once to apply some pressure in the borders of  the shell (because I  noticed it was not completely cylindrical) , and then the issue was gone.

Its not!

Only if your ears are a waterfall, in which case you need to go to the doctor anyways and he'll probably forbid you from using in-ear IEMs.

Glad to hear that too thanks.

This is the very first IEM I've owned that requires no EQ whatsoever; it's almost precisely the sound I was hoping for. Good work, Yamaha.

I have had both and yes the FXT-90s are much less pleasant to listen to (well, to my ears anyways).

Guess I'll never know ;D

So I've been married to my Yams for exactly a week now, and life is good. The treble brightness was a taste acquired, and everything else is just peachy. It pleases me to say that source EQ is a thing of the past.

I doubt the Grado IGI is a worthy alternative to the Yamaha´s.

Just experienced the problem with the volume on one side going down noticeably. It went away after 3 minutes though. This is the first time this had happened to me after about 2 years with EPH-100's.

I am not sure it are the in ears, were you listening to Spotify? I experienced the same with my woodcone JVC and Yamaha´s so I think it is Spotify and or my phone( Internet of Wlan)  because it would be to much of a co-incidence that both in ears suffers the same Problem.I never experienced it when listening offline to downloaded Albums.

I've owned 4 pairs of EPH-100 and they've all broken down in one way or another even though I'm careful. I take more care of these than I did with my HD800s since they're a lot more delicate.

Wow! It seems as I was/am lucky with mine, I also am very carefully with them and put them in a Little case. I know have them 1,5 year,and use them every day.It is intresting to know about their durability, as this can´t be reflected in a Review.
