And with someone like me who like different sound preferences it's really hard to say.
I've been thinking the same thing all day today when I was planning to buy the fostex.
When I get them, they will be treated fairly as well as the im-02s. If the fostex sounds more natural, I'll be pretty fang happy, but my imams (im-02s, darn phone) will have something the fostex dont.
I had this problem with the martins as well. I can t just throw away the re700s, even if the martins sound better in rendering the actual instruments themselves. It doesnt have the smoothest sound I have heard on a headphone as of late. The re700s fit that bill.
But comparisons are always nice, and it all comes down to, once again, preference.Edited by vlenbo - 2/17/14 at 3:10pm
