No. Down here there is no such thing as if you dont like them you can return them. I will wait for more impresions about those fad's or a full headphone as suggest.

no updates on the brainwavz r1?

hey guys, what's the cheapest place to get the FAD Adagio III? After reading the impressions, I think I'll go with these. I was previously considering the xb90ex as I am a huge basshead, but now I feel that FAD III might be a better overall package? Any opinions?

The FXD70 is one of the most detailed and transparent dynamic IEMs I've ever heard. And it's pretty balanced and neutral to my ears.

 

So... if you could only get one, would it be the fxd70 for $80 shipped or fxd80 for $95 shipped?

Tough question. Both are in the same family but their sound signatures are nothing alike. If you want a more neutral sounding earphone with a little bit more distance and soundstage, but fantastic clarity and transparency, I would recommend the D70.

If you don't mind the music being a little closer to your ears, but tremendous black space between instruments and a more 3D presence, then I recommend the D80. Actually hearing both with more than 200 hours burn-in I can't really choose one over the other. If you had me this question at let's say 50 hours of burn-in, I would have easily recommended the D80 over the D70. That's my honest opinion.

Anyway!
Seems like my next iem is going to be a W4 or something on that price range because my fxd70 and 80 are so good that my next iem has to be a big step foward, no sidegrades, i am not spending 100 200 bucks on little upgrades over them. I am not eve sure if its worth spending 400 on iem, yea maybe but..... I am very happy my 70 and 80's, they sound sooo goood, got the bass. The mids the highs.. smily_headphones1.gif

 

 

I love my W4 (refuse to sell them), but to be honest the D80 has a more 3D sound presentation than the W4, and the D70 is about equal with the W4 in dimension of sound (maybe even a little better). There is a layering of instrumentation, however, and spaciousness is something the W4 uniquely possesses to my ears. Also, with the right tips I think the W4 has more details than the JVCs. Glaringly more? No. Technically the W4 is better (especially if you a neutral sounding earphone), but it doesn't beat the D80 or D70 by leaps and bounds. I actually paid about $200 for my W4 (instead of $300 and something). That makes it worth to me to keep.

The R1 will be delivered to my Chicago office tomorrow, although I may not get a chance to listen to it until Friday.

Just ordered a pair of Adiago IIIs. Look forward to hearing them.

They need to get the xb90ex at a place with a amazon(like) return policy so I can try them out lol.

Guys,

Today is a very sad day.

My FX101s have broken!

After 500+ Hours of burn in (or me just using them)

This sucks. Only my left ear works now, it seems the connection from where the cord meets the plug has been ruined.

I have to jiggle it and find the right place for the right ear to work, and that's extremely hard

I love my music, 

and now I can't listen to it (well, on the go)


So...


I'm now on the hunt for an earphone that hopefully won't crap out on me!

I'm looking for some great bass, possibly even an upgrade to my $10 FX101s

What should I do?

I don't think I can hold out to save up for the XB90EX's

I know this is going to set me back quite a step with regards to saving up for those,

So which should I get that won't let me down?
the FX3Xs?

 

I have no clue.

If Someone could help that would be awesome!

 

Thanks :'(
