Which is why I am listening to and enjoying my r1's right now... before I get my fxd70's in to spoil the r1 party lol. I've got to say though, I am really enjoying these r1's. Even though in my books it was a bit crazy to get them (let alone them and the mh1c's lol) when I have the fxd70's coming, I can see that the r1's may very well find a place in my ears when I'm at the gym. As I said in the r1 thread:
I normally use my senn px100ii at the gym because the bass deals with outside sound well - or so I thought! I can't use them now at the gym after using the r1's. The r1's isolate very well, and the lush sound and bass is perfect for the gym environment.
It was funny.... when I took out the r1's out and put on the px100ii's, I couldn't believe how much noise I could hear. Absolutely zero isolation. What was I thinking? I must have been listening to radio station K.N.O.B lol! Anyway, I quickly put back in the r1's and went back to enjoying my music in a noisy environment.
But not only that, I am completely enjoying the sound coming out of the r1's. So no matter how much better the fxd70's might end up being, I'm pretty sure that I will still be able to enjoy the r1's at the gym, and therefore be happy with that dsnuts-taneous™ purchase.
For some reason, I think that I will also be happy with the mh1c purchase considering they only cost $20. Nice to have a giant-killer iem as backup :)
