But it's not two carbon nanotube drivers. Yet the IE800 is an excellent sounding IEM.

True, they're just microdrivers and sound excellent. CNT isn't necessarily better, one needn't make a fetish out of it...

Be careful mate, you might get flamed for that statement.

 

Here on Head-Fi CNT is the stuff of audio gods!!!! very_evil_smiley.gif

 

As proven and practiced by JVC. tongue.gif

 

Just take a look at the HA-S500 thread, its neverending lmao

Let 'em flame... I have three phones with CNT (FXZ100, FXD70, CKN70), so it's not an unfounded opinion.

If I have to guess, they must have used the same BA driver but changed the acoustic damper (filter). It feels like it is less dampened now so the sonic energy is better distributed. Treble stands out just a tiny bit more while lower end texture and warmth are reduced slightly. Overall the change is small, say 10% or less, but the overall balance has improved. I would guess they have done the same to the rest of the XBA series as well, which explains why the electrical spec remain the same for all the new models. That being said, I don't think those who already own the XBA-1 should upgrade to XBA-10, as you really won't find a big upgrade between them.

OK, S500s are out of the question now, ears will be too big for them hehe. Any other suggestions?

I'm curious how ears could be too big for supra-aural headphones considering they're supposed to sit on top of the ears.

If you really really needed them to be circumaural you could go with the HM5 pad mod. I have pretty large ears (too big for the AT WS99 and the AKG K267 pads) and the HM5 pads fit me great.

Any idea if there's anything fishy about my pair?

 

Would appreciate some feedbacks from owners here. Thanks in advance.confused_face_2.gif

My CKN70's do not have the holes either but the pair of CKN50's have two small holes.

Let us know how it goes though.

 

I might contact my Japan eBay mate as well and see what he says. tongue.gif

Remember though, I was stung using Tenso. Ended up paying £24 worth of custom fees.

I should've worded that differently; I'm not sure how comfortable they'd be with stock pads or WS55 pads with my ears being too big

Yeah dude I guess that is pretty harsh going. Not much that can be done I guess.

On the same subject, I just had word back from my Japanese eBay seller.

He said he can do them for $80 including shipping by Air Mail.

So who's in? biggrin.gif

Is that for the DX200s? I'd like the DX210s biggrin.gif

I'll wait for them to arrive on ebay for 55-60$.I'll happen eventually. Payed 85$ for the ckn70s only to find them on ebay two weeks later for 65$.
