could be the reason.. i used only stock tips.
but i always insert them deep in my ears when a/b-ing by pressing them in hard, like i did with my sm3.
maybe i couldn't get them angled perfectly to get the sweet spot.

and not by any stretch of my imagination can a fx700 compare with the sm3, even with the best tips..

happy to be rid of it... especially bad seal that leaks so bad it affects the sound... and the bas is excessive, boomy... i had my brother listen to it... blind test and he preferred tf10, sm3 over it.
i also had a friend test it, and he wasn't impressed (preferred sm3)
fx700 top tier with the likes of sm3?? (utter rubbish imo)

Benjerry, it seems strange to me that you loved the IE8, but hated the FX700 for their excessive, boomy bass. Both of these IEMs have excessive bass, but the FX700's is actually slightly more controlled imo. Probably you've got a lemon, there have been reports of FX700s in the thread, that shipped with moist filters and sounded pretty bad. While I wouldn't rate them better than the IE8 in every aspect, I agree with PCWar that they're extremely fine and musical IEMs.
