I wouldnt put any value on the fxt-90 as i have never owned it or been inclined to own it.  What I did think was that at $30 and above the fx40 wades into xears territory and that they should be pause for consideration given equally good performance and better build quality.

 

Fx40 is under $20.00 , exactly $17.86   thats almost the half of the price of the Xears.

thanks man - I appreciate your replies. I also consider those as an alternative, but the thing is, I really want sub-bass and big sound stage (mainly for big classical pieces) and XB90EX seems to be better in this regard. my budget as of now isn't really decided, but I would say something in 100$ range. I just wish these were sold in u.s. - they would be much cheaper (judging from the amazon japan prices) compared to what they are going for on ebay...


oh, and btw - all of you guys that love high value stuff should check out Able Planet SI500 iems - I'm listening to them right now and wonder if higher end iems will even manage to outperform these (I guess they will manage, but these sound so good, I can't imagine how  LOL). thge sound on these is big, wide, detailed and fast. fast pasages in rock is a breeze for these - something that my other iems could never manage. subbass starts from 15 herz (if the volume is crancked high enough you can actually feel tyhe vibrations) and becomes really audible at about 25. bass stays out of the mids and doesn't bleed in at all, or at least it sounds that way to me. highs are detailed and laid back, sometimes sparkly, but never sibilant or excessive.

 

I have to write a review on these some times soon, but until then, I would say to get them - at 30$ with free shipping from amazon, you can not go wrong. also, if some of you guys gets to compare these with the ones I'd like to buy in the future (fxds or XB90ex-s for example) I would have a better reference...

edit: did I mention these are dual dynamic drivers? only for 30 bucks? the cheapest dual drivers yo can get...

Then that could be considered a plus to the Xears.

I think you interpreted that wrong but hey ho, lets move on.  I you can pick them up for 17 bucks then by all means. Go a little higher (outside us and japan) and theres plenty others.

Do the philips she3580 and she3590 have the same sound? And is there ever going to be a comparison between all these iems divided by price range like fx101 vs she3580/90 vs isurus vs whatever else

How does the fx101 compete with the she3580 and does the fx101 need way more burn in?

You don't need an amp for either, 3580 is a Y cable. smile.gif Give them about 50-100 hours. (I made a typo above) wink.gif

Apparently they need 1000 at least FX101. Mine have 2367 on them and for 'some reason' still don't sound very good.
