Huh? I bought mine directly from Logitech.

Listened to Karnivool's Sound Awake album and I was immersed. If either of those are anywhere near this?? I'm in. 
I'll tell you how I hear it from the im-02.

It shouldn't be much different from the doppios as they are both very good with vocals.

Perfect. 

Okay, I'll test my fx40 tips when I get home and see what happens smily_headphones1.gif

Pics!

I can relate. I feel the same way about my $30 Sony MHC1 compared to other, much more expensive headphones and in-ears. There's something about the smoothness and musicality of the MHC1 that keeps me coming back for more, despite the clunky and microphonic flat cable. There's something just right about the sound coming out of these. Actually, my new GR07 MK2 has a hard time dragging me away from the MHC1... :)

 

 

Thanks for your input but you are obviously new to this thread. These do sound great even better with amping but we have moved on from these.  I think many of us still own these. I use them on occasion myself. Not enough micro hd earphones in existence imo.

I didn't post the MHC1 to introduce a new discovery, I was only relating to IEMagnet01's comment. And that "we have moved on from these." comment is hilarious. Who's we? Every single Head-Fi'er in this thread? :D I am obviously new.

Where's the cheapest I can get Doppios shipped to the States? I sold my KEF M200 to a head'fier in less than 4 hours. A record. So the cheapest seller please?

 

The X3s warmth and fullness bodes well with detailed and balanced iems. BAs play to the strenghts of the player. It is too bad you got rid of your S2 as those sound amazing on the X3, The S2 does require more power and a warmer source to show its full character..One advice I can give you is that it is a good investment to own several different sources. Especially if you own more than a few iems with different sound signatures. I highly recommend the DX50 even though it uses the same WM8740 chip it is tuned and sound differently to the X3..

 

The great thing owning both sources is that my more musical and full sounding iems play better with the DX50 and my more detailed and balanced iems synergize better with the X3. Both players get equal use. Something to consider, again especially for guys that own many in ears and headphones. You need the Yin for the yang if you will. The Doppios actually sound great with either player actually..

 

Best place to get them is via Amazon Japan bought through Tenso forwarding service. It will be much cheaper than buying them from ebay or anywhere else.

Ya the majority of the guys on this thread probably owned these or tried them at one point. Especially since they were rated highly from Joker and ClieoS.. Our thread here moves on quick..I think current budget earphones everyone is interested on here are the Xaomi Piston 2.0s.

 

The MH1s were and still are great for the price. Them Cords though are unruly but nice sounding none the less.

Ah, don't worry, that's just how this thread is. That's why I call it the FOTM thread - coz every month there is something new that is hyped as the best in a certain price range and next month it's forgotten by the regulars here, who were hyping it so much. Now you see people talking about iems like the new Pistons - in a month or two it will be like they never existed like no one is talking about the jvc's cnt iems or the ath ckn50, ckn70, the older zero audio models and a ton of other stuff.

I have no issues with that but some people might coz if they don't buy the new hyped stuff each month their opinion here won't be relevant coz people here want to read only about the newest stuff.

That... is really strange. I thought being on Head-Fi meant being on a quest for better sound? ;)

I agree, still like the Sony MHC1, got used to the cable, even gave out as a gift, really nice. Also like the XBA3, which also seems to have fallen out of favor.
Have the UE-700, like the Triple-fi 10, once I get it to fit right, generelly have neglected the UE-700 (also a tough fit, for me, have to play with tips and listen to them some, pull them out of retirement).
On the FOTM front, the Pistons are the real deal, gave them 24 hours burn in, put on Comply tips, they remind me, on first impression, of the Zero Carbo Tenores-nice wide stage, detail, good bass, and both do remove a small amount of instrumental color (to my ears), the Zero more than the Pistons, just noticeable on the Pistons but not something that gets in the way or is annoying, just there imo. If I get in a geeky mood, maybe run the against some other iems in the house.
I'd recommend the Westone W3 to anyone at the sales prices they have been popping up at, about $150-200 (the closer to $150, the better, obviously). Great iems, going out of production, the current version of the Gratitudes, not quite as inexpensive, but a great deal at $150 as well (W4 doesn't seem to have been discounted to the same extent so far).

Just sayin'

Of course not-don't you know it's a contest, whoever collects the most stuff, wins:D

^X2

Just register yourself an account in tenso, it is simple, free and sometimes, you get benefits like discounts on shipping fees, (though it's usually the taken market.that gets.it not amazon japan)

If you have questions PM me, ds, eric, or Danny (as well as other headfiers) on how you can use tenso without fail.

I'm jelly, you guys have the x and I still haven't bought mine yet. Can I still buy it for $150.

I need to do more of this myself. But I am weak willed like so many of us.. Weak I say! I want to be more like Wayne.

WE could get Reverend Billy, pastor of the CHURCH OF STOP SHOPPING out of nyc and Burning Man to do a special head-fi.org sermon for us.  his essence is to

"step away from the object of your desire, and let the clear light of not shopping flow between you and the object."  of course Burning Man is a gift economy, very special,

where you can't spend any money for a week, only trade or gift items...we could try that.  BUT NO, we all have itchy trigger fingers for that  new item or headphone that

could deliver sonic perfection and audio bliss.....HA!  and  thanks for groking my gracing and back at you all my audio friends! ITS nice to have some emotional connection in

this forum and hobby, its not just all wires and drivers and technology, its the human part of it too, what this crazy hobby does to our wallets but more so to our ears and spirits!

and the joy of wildly great sound in our heads!!!!!! thanks for participating in this discussion everyone!!

indeed!  my piston 2.0 are on the way , as well as the Havi B3....couldnt resist, itchy trigger finger...and ears.  although not budget but a fantastic deal at 175.00 when discounted, 

the sony mdr 7550 are my reference ism for natural monitor sound. almost perfect. a lot more expensive but you can find them discounted

to that good price every now and then.  they are a tweaked version of the mer 1000s with less sibilant highs and plastic instead of metal case.

they are fine example of sony engineers at their best creating a master ism...i keep them in a special place in my house in fact with my treasure level

gear.
