Don't ever buy anything from this seller " elefmtransmitter_aimee "
I bought a 500mw transmitter from him on Feb 15 2013 for 50$, it was Mono instead of Stereo
We decided together to refund the item, I sent the item by register mail
Up to these days the seller did not refund me and most of the times even did not answer my mails
Remember, DON'T BUY anything from this seller…"

Good deal on the xba1's! Did you get a chance to listen to them at all?

 

Sony had a clearance sale on the XBA line: XBA1vp $20, XBA2 $40, XBA3/ip $50!!! Can you believe it? And it's free shipping for Sony members wink_face.gif

 

I can't resist so I opened the box and listened a bit... LOVELY mids! Punchy Bass! Smoooooth Highs! A mid-centric IEM. BUT: huge roll off in the sub bass, and lacks extension in upper highs. Took my Bassos for a comparo... nah! The XBA1 has NOTHING over the Bassos. Just made me realise just how AMAZING the lush mids and extended highs on the Bassos are despite the MASSIVE Bass! But in fairness to the XBA1, for $20... it's a steal!

Yup. Even comparing the basso's too more expensive iem's, they impress. They are very good "reality check" iems. I am finding the vsd1's to be like that as well.

You'r not kidding... WAY above my threshold (whew!):

 

 

Actually, that would be in US funds. When converted to CN (Canadian), it comes out to $330CN.

 

On amazon japan they come out to $260CN. Add $40CN tenso shipping and it is $300CN. So still cheaper via amazon japan for Canadians.

 

So my new threshold for these X1's is actually my standard threshold... $200US (just likeTekeRugburn) :)

I'll leave it up to dsnuts to drive you further nuts since he has both. Or maybe Danny. Lord knows they are driving me nuts well enough lol.

 

When the X1 voices start getting too loud in my head, I am very relieved that I have the AD900X's. Because when I throw them on, I think of the words of a very wise man...

Would you believe me if I told you in around 200 hours they are gonna freak you out. Lol! Glad to hear I didn't stir you wrong.. The AD900X is an experience that is for certain.

 

That stage is pretty freaking great... Enjoy my friend and give us some impressions.

Dsnuts, can you compare the bass of X1 vs WS99? Which one makes the better basshead can?

Thanks!

WS99.being a closed can has more emphasis in the bass region yet is balanced for a bass emphasized can. Something that is easier said than done on most bassy cans. The X1 takes that to a different level of refinement more stage detail open with bass which again not too many open cans can dish out but also cost up to $100 more.. There are bassier headphones out there but to me if the mids and highs don't have good presence then they will be lacking..

 

If your a fan of deep rumble but also want full mids and non fatiguing highs the WS99. If you want a higher end audio experience and don't mind a little sound leak to achieve a grander stage the X1 the bass end is not enough for big bass fans but what is there is excellent. It is a complete package in sound...

 

I think both are excellent cans..the X1 is not portable however and the WS99 is are easier to drive over the X1.  More isolation the bigger bass helps drown out street noise on the WS99. The X1 makes for  an excellent home listening experience the WS99 is more versatile as they can be used on the go or at home.

 

I just did a quick A/B and my thoughs were correct on the bass difference. The WS99 has more bass emphasis. The real shocker here is the X1 is not too far off.. WS99 has the sub bass region as well but the X1 is not too far off but has that air/ space  with that bass which to my ears is something wicked. Lol.
