Sorry man. I should have put on a Waynenumm block on this thread.

 

Lol! Could you do that? Please???

 

Pretty much before getting introduced to this thread (or was it the fxd70/80 thread - doesn't matter), I didn't even want iem's. I had crappy ones that came with various gizmos. I bought a pair of skullcandy iem's for $50 a few years ago. Yuck. You gotta stick'em in your ear.. they are a hassle if you want to get them in and out a lot... they can make your ears itchy, and they sound like crap! Or so I thought. frown.gif Someone (you, rick, someone, dunno anymore) convinced me to get the fx40. Why not give it a try for $25 from Future shop. Although the high end was too much for me, the fxd40's made me realize that iem's might actually have meaning. The R1's even contributed to that feeling, as they sound quite good to me. The fxd70's were supposed to be the way for me to reach iem-audio-nirvana at a really decent price - all I had to do was to ignore your ongoing praise of the xba3's (which was easy because they would never be close to $100 again). But noooooooo LOL!

 so at least I am not feeling the need to get more headphones.

so dangerous if you had told me what would happen when I joined I never would have believed you.

 

 good luck with keeping off here . Cross ALL your fingers.

 

oh the fullsized, at least you aren't constantly eyeing and buying full sized overpriced vintage orthos, which you know you don't need, but somehow strangely do. ( plus time spent on mods wow )

 

 

I am seriously really hoping the IEM's will make me snap out of it ( better fall and wet winter use ),  liquidate a few things, and try to end the journey with a couple key " cheaper " IEM's.

Yeah that is completely backwards i know, but none of this makes much common sense does it.

 

T-Peos it is I guess... or.... XBA3...  or

 

help meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Well to the both you guys in Canada. Let me say this. If you get those XBA-3s for the sale price. Try them out and feel they weren't worth your money.

 

Just listen to Eric Claptons Unplugged and if you guys are not impressed at all..I am certainly willing to bet you someone else will gladly take them from you for whatever you guys got them for here at headfi. I am willing to bet on it. Something like a 3 driver precision tuned Sony that throws out incredible top of the line high end sound in your ears for $130? No problems selling them or returning them. 

 

If you can return them to FS that is another option. Both you guys have a great opportunity to get a deal most of us can't. There is a guy from Canada selling his pair for $170 on ebay and I bet he will get it too.

Well, these were a last good treat for me until December when the GR08 comes out. Until then, I'm out of the game for awhile guys. Why? Well I just paid for my 1964 EARS V6. So that will occupy my listening time a lot, but this MH1C is probably the deal of the year in IMHO.

As has been so often the case lately: I had a glass of wine; I read your response and it made way too much sense; and .... DONE! biggrin.gif

Funny! Because it's a sickness, I had to google "1964 EARS V6" to see what the veritable ericp is talking about. Which lead me to the below thread which ironically enough was started by one ericp lol! It should be an interesting read. But I warn you... if you end up selling me on whatever the heck they are (I can already tell that they are very expensive), I'm afraid that you are not long for this earth lol!:

They might go on sale down to $100 again, but $130 is pretty close. I would just like to get an iem that I am really happy with and that keeps me off of head-fi for a while!, but to also keep the expense somewhat under control. For some reason, I get the feeling (the hope) that the xba3's might be the right balance (although a few weeks back, I thought that the fxd70's would be the right balance lol!).

I just put in a "I'd like to return my R1" request to mp4nation (as opposed to trying to sell them here). Even without considering the xba3's, and even though I like the R1's, I can't justify keeping them along with the mh1c's and the fxd70's. If I do get the xba3's, then (a) I'll probably consider selling my "as yet unlistened to" fxd70's (although I got them for $60, so I might keep them); and (b) I will ban myself from head-fi because I don't want to read about dsnuts' adventures with the cks99 or the fxz200 or whatever he next ventures into!

One great thing is that I am really happy with my S500's, so at least I am not feeling the need to get more headphones.


Man, i am buying those 70's, they are mine, as soon as you get them pm me so whe can make the deal, i would GLADLY help you with that, you will need another $70 for your xba-3.

Thats what friends are for... You know.....

I bet you went right away and looked those up in here.   It's only a few threads away from this one.

 

Oh no so you are heading out to grab the XBA3???  never mix wine and head-fi, trust me.
