However I feel it makes up for this lack of top end sparkle with endless deep sound that are an EX specialty..If you guys want your highs with your mids and bass. While the sound is not as tight the CKS77 is actually this..This bit of roll off makes the earphones sound very smooth and tunes are ultimately very easy to listen to. Imagery is also very nice on the XB90. Recordings with up front vocals are clearly heard up front and center. Many earphones can't convey the position of instruments to vocals and the depth required for this to be right but the XB90 is magical with it comes to this making big bands and live concerts a pleasure to listen to.

You are making me want it even more. :D thanks for all these impressions, but would you mind writing a full review with pics and all that goodness?

The xb30ex was a bit sibilant for me.  I don't notice this on the xb60 or the xb90.  The bass on the 30's hits low but you can hear it's working hard to hit them so it doesn't sound as good as the other two but it does come close to the 60's.  90's does it effortlessly and sounds amazing.  

 

The fxd60's are have detailed treble without sibilance and sounds much better than the xb30's.  The bass is thicker on the fxd60's but doesn't quite reach the lowest sub-bass notes the 30's do.  Still, I prefer the bass on the 60's more.  The vocals/mids are also presented better on the jvc's.  A little more forward than the sony's.  Overall, I think the fxd60's are one of the best buys out there.  It's worth the price tag and more.  It is a bass heavy earphone but its detailed and doesn't lack in the mids and treble so the whole sound works out well.  If I were to recommend the Sony's, I'd advise the 90's.  For the JVC's, I would recommend all of them because they are all tuned very well.

Oh DAMN! Should I be worried!


Anyways guys, what do you reckon?
Should I look at getting a Brainwavz M4?
Are they bassier than my FX101s?
What would these compare with?
Please, if you could give me a little insight that would be great!
How do they compare to CKS77's?

Perhaps the FX40s?

 

Ive actually just been offered the FX40s and M4s for $40

Worth it? or Should i still just save for the XB90EX
Thanks

Ordered the fx40s right before Amazon's California tax date.

 

So, what's the minimum amount of hours that I should expect for burn in to tone down and smooth out their high treble?

150-200 hour. No exaggeration. These need a good long burn in period. At 100 hours when guys think it is enough. I think that is when they actually start to change. Burn em Loud at that.

Hey everyone!  I'm new here, just had my UE Super fi 5 EB's distroyed by my dogs.  I'm in need of a set with the amount of bass those had.  I can get a set of the M-Audios that were UE rebagded or clones when M-Audio sold the UE's for UE.  Please shed some light on this situation.  I need some quickly.  Thanks in advance!

Looking for a godd sounding set of IEM's.  Are the sony's mentioned above a good replacement for my destroyed UE super fi 5 EB's?
