for those interested, the xba30 i have are very different from the xba3. I couldnt stand the xba3 highs and the xba30 are just fine, but the sound is much warmer.

I got the HiFiMan HM601 Slim. I'm excited for its reported warm sound like Sony's, and rockbox capable. Yay!

i have the bassos on the way, hopefully they will impress in the mids more than the eph100 did for me.

Why? Because if you use the X3, then A/B with a Sansa or Sony, and you realize that even when the bass is cranked to +10 on the X3, they simply don't present a rounded, weighty bass. The bass is linear and lacking any roundness. It's not presenting bass to its fullest potential, and for a high class DAP, that's unacceptable for me. So hopefully the HM601 can provide that sub bass and mid bass articulation like the Sony and Sansa can, then I'm a happy camper . I'm close to being a happy camper with the Sansa, but A/B the Sansa and X3 reveled the X3 to bring out finer details I like. Just not a healthy bass.

The Mikros 90 get good reviews here , but are a very old IEM. Not necessarily a discovery.

FAD Heaven V Aging has a higher end sound that shouldn't be possible coming from a single armature driver. The depth I hear is nuts. Everything sounds natural and in its place. Drums sound real and it's made for voices. Treble doesn't sound extended like the Doppio's but there's no lack of clarity. Instruments are clearly made out. I feel like I'm listening to something that should cost $500+. No joke. Don't take this as hype since I do that well. This earphone really needs to be heard. I'm sure I've said that many times before but man this is a REAL sound.

Whoa, I stop reading this thread for two days and all of a sudden the FAD Heaven V is finally getting some major hype in here! Never thought this day would come haha. Yeah vwinter's impressions got to me too, never read a writeup like that on head-fi before, so good job vwinter! About time more people heard about the FAD Heavens.

Mackem and DsNuts know all about the Bassos. They seem to love them, so you might be getting a really nice IEM?

I always wanted to hear the heaven IV, but people said that the mids were....special, to put it in euphemistic terms.

 

Some people preferred the ortofons eq-5 than the IV, and because I loved the ortofon's bass and mids, I didn't bother buying anything else. 

 

But those heaven V aging always got to me, but I didn't have moneys that time, and now that I can sell some leftover iems, those heavens might be mine in the summer. :o 

 

I agree though, especially since the reviews their heaven series get are usually positive. Go FAD!

Do like this music, though, gotta look into the band some more.

I wanted to thank you for that earlier music of the day post you made, I need to look into that jazz artist as the sounds were amazing on the H3s, the depth, accuracy, speed of the instruments made me in love with the instrumental! 

 

And I agree about the cymbals standing out, but the sonys do it beautifully that it doesn't hurt, :')

 

lol, the laptop and the youtube page are the culprit, go use them players meng! That and spotify if you can...

 

Those gratitudes sound awesome, I wish I bought it at the time of the hype, but I already have the iems I want.

The issue with these being so awesome and not getting any hype could be the $240+ price tag for a single armature driver,and granted head-fi'ers give these huge love and say the bass is off the hook for a single BA, but for so many competitors in the single BA world, including the ZA singlos, the Klipsch X11, ect ect, that price is really steep, and you can get some wicked awesome dual driver IEMs at the same price point. If not for that price, I'd be really interested in picking them up.

That I do. Not sure how they compare to the EPH-100s as I've never heard them, but I've got hundreds of hours of usage out of my Bassos. The Bassos aren't bad at all, just I want an upgrade since I have the money. I'd be more than happy to use my Bassos as my main IEM and have been for months now.

1)I always liked the XBA-3, but then, I'm easy (but NOT CHEAP).
2)Sure, Mikros 90 is not brand new, but generally, Discoveries aren't just a brand new headphone, at least not historically in this thread. If something has been around for a while, but seems to have missed by most folks, recently discounted to make it a better buy than it was at list price, it seems to qualify. Examples: Monster Gratitude, which got much play here, also in the past few pages, the FAD Heaven V, which certainly isn't brand new, but I'm interested in hearing about them if someone "discovered" them, that is, tried them out, found them worthy of note. ML Mikros 90 falls in the same category...under $100, it's a no brainer IMO, people on the Mikros thread feel it was a good buy at its original list price, and is competitive with the high priced spread.

Yeah it does move fast, becUse the Piston have been reviewed, impressed, and processed like Christmas Carols at the holidays. They are highly detailed, strong bass but no bleed, lively and timbre accurate highs, smooth mids, and mildly if just minutely v-shaped.
