DannyBai and I have been trying to tell you guys that you can't get much better than the M200 in an iem for the price. For me it's the universal of the year! That's considering , price, sound and build. If you can get a good fit, it's hard to beat it. Happy listening.

Amen to that. It could be classified as a giant killer. wink.gif

Im going to have to agree here as well.  I would say a tier below the Cardas, but in the conversation with the W4, 4.Ai, etc (by memory).  Of course fit will be an issue for some.

I have just tried the JVC HA-S680 with my Rockboxed Sansa Clip+ (mostly 256KBps VBR MP3s).

Before this, I have never experienced "synergy". If the dac/amp/headphone was good, it was good in almost any combination.

 

ATH-ES700 sounds very muddy and veiled with Clip+, as both of them are warmish.

HA-S680 is very balanced, so it doesn't have this problem - sounds out of Sansa+ almost as good as out of ODAC+E12.

 

Ironically, the difference between ES700 and S680 is smaller when playing FLACs through NFB-11.32.

But with Clip+, one sounds like a free earbud you get with any MP3 player/cellphone,  and the other one keeps me from doing my job for the past 2 hours.

 

I was considering X3/DX50 purchase, but I think I'll skip them now.

I have managed to get a deep inserted seal with the M200 using DN-1000 medium translucent grey tips. Brings forward more detail and clarity but can cause sibilance if you fail to get a good seal.

 

 

Not stock tips but what wide bore shorter aftermarket tips looks like/ does for these M200s.

 

... and i was able to get great seal/ fit using both stock smallest AND medium tips!!! :blink:

Saw some black friday deals.  Would these be better than the S500 and HPH200?

 

Monster DNA Over Ear $75

UE6000 $70

Sony MDR-X10 $98

If one can wait, both the X5 and now the X1 are very intriguing.

They are trying to have the 100$/200$/400$ DAPs.

 

X3 is basically E17 with GUI,  and X1 will be half of its price - don't expect too much.

X5 could be really good, but 400$ for an MP3 player? It better be mind blowing.

Just let me know when Fiio works out their interface issues. Scrolling through my tracks on the X3 was painful enough to make me stick with my Clip Zip.

I'm not familiar with the issues, but hopefully the inclusion of the scroll wheel will fix them.

It was mostly the sluggish speed that drove me crazy. The delay when you clicked to play a track had a very noticeable pause too. It's an excellent device for sound, but as far as using it, they need a lot of work IMO.
