This is a crazy one. I have no idea how these can be sharp sounding. AT earphones and JVCs FX40 and FXD earphones have much more emphasis on the highs over these XB90s.. I am listening to them amped on my fire phoenix now.. Don't hear the sharpness you guys are experiencing..

 

I feel the same way as this review of them from some duder on Amazon.

 

I kinda find these the Yin to the RE-0's Yang. Where the RE-0 have detailed crisp highs/mid range and detailed but low quantity lows, the EB90EX have plentiful lows/mids with great control and good detail but less quantity in the highs.
That's not to say they are not there. They do have good presence.

Hi thinking about picking up the ele. Does it come with a usb cable?

Unfortunately not..You can get some nice USBs for cheap on monoprice.com or if you have prime get some decent ones from Amazon or ebay. Or just use your printer cable.

I don't know what to say. the highs on XB90EX are sparkly, but not sibilant. almost every other iem sounded sibilant to me except the sonys. now you guys say they have piercing highs. :D just o be sure, do you know how much highs your ears can hear? I can only hear up to 20Khz with medium volume levels. Try some test - maybe you both have superhuman "high frequency hearing ability" and that's because you are so sensitive to highs :D

I would also try a different source too. I noticed on some sources the sound can be a bit sharper and smooth on others.

My goodness. I seem to have found a great match with this Ha-info. I had no idea just how much you can tweek the sound by changing op amps. But what I am hearing right now.

 

I went from Stock Opa2604 to the dual LT1028 and I ran into a bit of a problem. The dual op amp is sitting too high so I couldn't get the case to fit.

 

I plugged it in anyway.. Hmm. A bit on the bright side. Not feeling it. Then I tried the 2nd chip. The AD8273N.

 

 

Booya. WOW. This chip makes this little unit sound too good not to keep that chip in there. So even without trying out the 3rd. This chip will stay in here. This sound I am hearing went from good to...... My best sounding dac? Lol.. It has to be. I am amazed just how much this jives with the stock AD1852 DAC chip. Shocking..It simply sounds too good to be true. Lol.  Now onto the Fire Phoenix.

 

 

 

DS,  i am playing with cheap Amp. Lepai Thripath TA2020A,   made in china but is sounds very good for only $20 bucks, using it for my TV using 2 Daytons B652 Speakers,  cheap and fun setup.   This Cheap Amp is using the SAME opamp the FirePhoenix is using, so it should sound even better with an upgrade on OpAmps.

 

i changed the OpAmps on my Lepai and i am using NES5532P, sounds better.   funny thing is that i didnt even remebered/considered the Fire Phoenix, its using a pair of cheap OpAmps so i am gonna buy:

 

 LT1028, LM4562 and OPA2134P and let you know.

 

Where did you bought your OpAmps? ebay?  seller? i am worried about counterfits

Amazon Japan is amazing. It is like I just discovered a hidden oasis in the desert. Freaking Sony MDR 1Rs are being sold on there for $215. That is unreal.

I know, right? I loved how nice every headphone we want is cheaper than expected. I had no idea that the 1Rs are $215 though, that definitely is too good to be true. Now I want those for Christmas too :(.

For 20 bucks they might be worth checking out.
