Yes they are amazing sound quality for the price!

 

Personally I wouldn't get a pair. They were good when they were discovered ~2 years ago. Now there are IEMs like the CKN50 and FXD80 that sound just as good if not better for a fraction of the price.

I'd be weary b/c it's one of those listings where the item says new/never open, yet an accessory is missing from the box.

Gah, trying to find somewhere that will ship the FX3X's to the UK but so that they won't cost me like £40 like some of the US sellers. Having trouble in general trying to decide what I should upgrade my FX101s to. I like the bass of the FX101s but I'd like to upgrade to something 'better' for the lack of a better word.

Have to disagree with you there as i own the FXD80's

 

They're both good at what they do, and both are different, when it comes to edm/trance id pick the eph everytime.

 

Despite the FXD80's having a touch more detail, they just aren't as fun to listen to.

Maybe you could have somebody in the US buy them for you then ship them to you?  Assuming the overall cost would be cheaper.

I doubt that any of those can keep up with the EPH-100s.

They simply have too much accuracy and vibrancy, especially with Trance music.

The Yamahas are definitely amazing for electronic music. Perfect tuning for that. However for other genres, the treble is IMO too laid back and soft. I found the FXD80 nearly as great for electronic and the sound more versatile and detailed. And they're half the price.

Sounds like you haven't had either of them. Speculation doesn't help anyone.

 

Anyway I was just giving Mackem my advice, let's not turn this into a Yamaha debate.

I heard the FXDs and yeah they are better slightly for other music genres that don't relate to EDM.

Yamaha are still the clear choice if what you are going to use them for is EDM.

I gotta say, this thread is pretty damned confusing. Couldn't a new thread be made for each separate product to hype them up? The topic changes all the time and I never remembered why I followed it in the first place

Usually, there are separate threads for each product.

 

Here's kind of the way it works:
 

  1. A new product gets "discovered" by a Head-Fi member
  2. The product gets posted to the Discovery Thread so that a large amount of people can see it.
  3. The person recieves the product, and offers their impressions on the Discovery Thread to gain exposure for the product.
  4. Other people order the product.
  5. If the product is deemed adequate, a thread gets created about it.

 

I have a separate thread for the EFis, for example, but because the Discovery Thread has so many more people reading it, a majority of the comments about the Efi go here. As such, I reply to them here.

 

This is a sandbox for cheap stuff that overacheives. That's the topic. If you prefer a more honed-in discussion, which makes sense, there are also individual discussions for products. They just aren't as lively.

Hmm. Those reviews make them look pretty beastly!

Decent (at least) SQ in a nice looking portable? Sounds a lot like the Uptown to me.

 

Looks like you found a winner.
