Ya I have a pair of those. I still prefer the wider shorter tips vs anything long on the earphones.. Those sound great on the Mp 8320 though.

post #3557 of 25523

I got mad the other day and ripped off one of the earphones from my 8320. That cable is probably the worst I've ever seen in a headphone.

Time to recable. :)

 

I tried the FXD80s a while back and can remember them being not so great. Like a lesser version of a tf10. On the other hand they look amazing.

post #3558 of 25523

Actually I hear more bass and details in the FXD80 than TF10 (I just recently sold it). The D80 also presents the music in a more 3-D soundstage. I will write more about this later, but Dsnuts let me borrow his Sony XB90EX and I thought it was the most bass I've ever heard in a IEM - actually too much bass (and I'm a basshead too). The only bass that comes close to it is the bass in the ASG-1(.2)  and the bass in the FX700. The Sony bass is pretty clean but not the cleanest I've heard at that level (those go to the ASG and FX700). Mids are also very nice in the XB90, and the treble was fine (although I can see how some might feel the treble isn't bright or sparkly enough). 

What the D80, D70, FX700 and ASG-1.2 have over the XB90 is clarity, detail and transparency. This is not by any means a suggestion that the XB90 isn't a good detailed IEM, but the the four other ones I've mentioned are better. The Sony sounds a bit (tad bit) veiled compared to those four. For about $90 to $104, however, the XB90 is an excellent value.

Are they reliable? what do you think?

ebisu-japan: http://cgi.ebay.ph/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=271073413778 Isn't an overpriced?

The link I posted the seller has a star rating meaning 100% satisfaction. Try that one. They only get that rating when everyone is happy with what they sell.

Oh sorry didn't see that. Try n find a vendor that sells new in box to your country. Sorry I can't be of more help. The FX3X is more exotic than most as they are Asian release only it seems. As long as they are sold new in box I would go for it and use paypal just in case.

I would go with this seller (SMARTIMPORTS) cuz it is shipped from Japan, which means most likely legit and they ship to many places in the world for free so.....

No worries mate. Amazon Japan doesn't ship them outside, that's the cons. I hope they will realize it. :D

Thanks. I'll think about whether smartimports or ebisu-japan. :)

So how does the XB90 compare to the ones you stated in soundstage? I think someone here stated that the XB90 almost sounded like 2.1 speakers and had a larger soundstage than any of his other IEMs. Do you agree with that statement?

 

If so, just how large is it?

(at least I hope so lol )

I'm not used to anything particularly bright and have also tried different tips. These will be sold soon.

I get the feeling from subsequent replies that I'm crashing the circle-jerk. wink.gif
