I agree with you, that $280 deal was amazing, but there was a deal pertaining the woodies for $80....


that was even worse... frown.gif

And definitely, I don't believe these will best the fx850s, but the height + width of these earphones are actually equal, which is something I never expected. Most of the time, I hear wide WIDE soundstages without having an equal amount of height.


When you mean that the fx850 has a huge soundstage, from your impressions, you mean both width and height, corerct?

Because...

I want to hear 11 flights of stairs in my earphones, with these iems, I hear at least 8 small flights.

If I got that $80 deal I'd have grabbed as many as possible and sold it to Head-fier just to fuel the hype. biggrin.gif


I mean huge. I love my iems but I have never thought it was possible for it to have a soundstage bigger than open headphones. Height or width I have yet to hear anything that matches these in a closed can, let alone in-ears.

:eek:

 

Well, I lost that chance... :(

 

 

 

For now! Thanks for sharing that impression!

Well, I just gave them a quick listen and philips nailed it again. These are extra buttery. I haven't heard the fidelios in quite a while but  the TX2 seems a bit less punchy and with more sub-bass emphasis. And the treble is smoother - smooooooooth. I sill have to burn them in and do some tip rolling before putting these against the competition but so far I'm really liking what I hear - I'll definitely pick these over the overhyped pistons any day.

Don't worry, it's not just a decent iem for the money - it's actually good :tongue_smile: 

Joker should also be getting it soon if he hasn't already.

Okay, with the Schiit Vali and Modi, the IM07 is one of the best dual-dynamic balanced basshead earphones I've ever heard! This DAC and amp are just taking my earphones places I didn't know they could go. About to Doppio a spin now (test track--Led Zep's For Your Life).

ehhh the noise floor/ ringing of the vali isn't a problem for low impedance iems???

Not at all. It disappears with the music on. It's a tube hybrid. You hear it when you turn it on initially, but it dissipates.

Yeah with music on the vali is great, but during silent passages you can hear it with low impedance iems, and even with high impedance cans you can hear a constant ringing from the left or right channel that some have reported with some units. Not a deal breaker but can get a lil' annoying is alls. : P
