If these went in like the CKM500s or other AT earphones. You would need some big ears for them to fit.. Trademark Sony sideways dish housings. XB60 Danny you say is similar but has smaller housing ?...  On a side note I actually prefer the mids on these XB90EX over my EX600. Surprising.

That's what the metal case looks like. Perfect for a pair of IEMs using a 3 finger wide coiling method.

Note, I don't think larger IEMs like those Sonys or TF10s would fit, but the JVCs fit just fine.

When those sonys reach my price range ill jump, but for now i got my hands full.

 

I also agree about the ckm500 not 'owning' the jvc's, and its difficult because i dont want to keep them all. The ckm500 overall are a more refined phone than the jvc's, you just have to hear their presentation.

 

The brainwave M4's are also very very good, small, light, more rumble than the fx40 and a bit less than the 101 with great un-piercing highs and its own presentation. They should get more attention...

The XB30 and XB60 have the same housing size which are slightly smaller than the XB90.  Hard to tell from pictures but here it is anyway.

But them M4s are more pricey though, got a pair of beta V2s, and was not impressed whatsoever, they are capable but nothing special.

If you guys owned the CKS77 at one point you will get a good idea of the signature that is on the XB90EX. That air chamber out back is all business. The main difference being that CKS77 has more mid bass while the XB90 having more juicy sub bass. Then there is the mids which is the most surprising to me on these earphones. It is to my ears one of the better mids I have heard for in ears. Awesomely layered mid section as it has so much depth.  The CKS77 does this to a degree but not nearly as natural as these sound.  Both sounds are big but these actually do it better.. On better recorded material the sense of depth is just crazy.

They aren't that far apart.  There's more of a mid-bass presence in the 60's.  They both hit the sub-bass notes very well but the 90's do it effortlessly.  Overall, the 60's do everything the 90's do but loses on refinement of the whole sound spectrum.  I'd say they are around 80-90% of the 90's depending who's comparing them.
