They have listings for the MA750 and MA750i on Amazon USA ready. Also, the MA600 and MA600i are there as well.

 

As far as I know, they're available in the UK already. I expected British sites to have reviewed these by now, but so far I can't find anything.

 

But those links say currently unavailable. Amazon does that a lot and it can be months before product comes in.

Indeed, but at least it's likely because of the production delay that they mentioned (they announced an August 28 release date for US). Where your Onkyos are, who knows. tongue.gif

Ugh only 5 onkyos left in stock and i really don't want to wait a couple weeks for them to restock either... Well i guess i might as well get them since the impressions do seem positive. They're re not going to be a downgrade to my gr02 either way lol.

Hey guys, I don't know how active this thread still is but I would like to make a contribution. Recently I needed a pair of IEMs with extreme isolation and I certainly found it. But what I didn't expect was anything resembling good sound. But wow. these are amazing for the price. I literally got both the Thermaltake Isurus and SHE3580 a while ago because of this thread and these blow them away in accuracy, for 10$ less than the Isurus.

The etymotic EK5 is anything but childish. This thing is sweet, about as accurate as the proven m50 except instead of bass emphasized the upper mids are a little boosted.

Despite having that bump at 5khz they aren't sibilant like the Isurus(something I really couldn't stand for long). 
I'm definitely endorsing these. Only problem is the comfort but that gets better after awhile

the onkyos sound like they would play nice with the X3...anybody have experience with that combo or onkyo and c3?

The Onkyos sound fine out of the X3. They definitely benefit from the larger sound and slight coloring. Some might find them too warm but it's more of a slight coloring, than the in your face warmth.

Ok ordered some used Onkyo IE-HF300's from Singapore :) (Thanks again d marc0 for the link!)
Should be coming late this week or early next week *fingers crossed*
Can give some impressions against RE-400/S2 when I get my hands on them :)

Mind sharing the link? :) I'm planning to get the ES-HF300 and if it's closed I won't need to wait 2 weeks to get them. :D

Oh sorry it was a FS post on a forum, so only 1 IEM available.
Just grabbed it for $129 AUD shipped ($114 usd)
Pretty happy :D

Not that much cheaper than the amazon price if you live in US (I don't, so this is a great deal for me)

LOL. For a moment there I thought there was a reseller in S'pore and I've been stupidly exporting them in directly from Japan. lmao

Are the Onkyo's on-ear headphones comparable to KEF M500?
You seem to really dig the headphones DannyBai, more so than the earphones haha

You are welcome mate!

I'll look forward to your impressions on them and the comparison against S2.

Bad news I didn't get my Onkyo phones. Good news I did get my Zu cable. Gotta give props to our good buddy ericp10 for helping us discover this one.

 

I know it is difficult to believe that a simple cable can bring a sound level that was already on point on the X1 but that is exactly what these cables do..Sure it is a bit more costly than your average cheapo good looking cable you can buy from monoprice/mediabridge and such.  But excellence never comes cheap.  To put it simply what I was hearing from my X1 using these Zu cables was a new spin on the X1. Basically a new level.. I was perfectly happy with just using my Media bridge cables until I heard what these cables do to the sound on the X1.

 

Guys that own the X1..These are it..I can't possibly see how anything can sound better on the X1. If you guys thought the X1 was not capable of  higher end sound. You are wrong. Just get a pair of these. I knew this cable was gonna make my X1 sound better but what I heard last night is not just better..I have never heard my X1 sound this nice.. The sound is lusher. A much cleaner blacker background..Distinct instrument separation. Sound is more refined all of it from the treble sparkle to the bass extension. .

 

Look at it this way for you guys that own the X1. If I was to tell you there is a new version of the X1 called the X1-Zu.. Where you get even a higher resolution sound from your X1. How much would you pay? $150? $100? Nope it is $35 from ebay.. (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and completely worth the $35 asking price).. Guys that don't believe in what a cable can do for your sound..Be prepared for a revelation..My X1 has completely separated itself from my humble collection with the addition of this cable. Sell off one of your cheapo earphones and get the cable. Guaranteed to get your stupid grin happening.

Comfort and sound level would go to the M500's.  Build is better on the M500's too but the Onkyo's are still one of the better ones.  Totally different sound signature.  There's definitely more warmth in the Onkyo's so it'll depend on what your preferences to know which is better for you.  At first I like the headphones better, after a good 24 hour burn, the earphones started coming alive, especially the vocals.  Now I have two full days of burn so I'll check it out some more.
