I looked on Amazon and can't find it, hopefully they'll get me a cheap deal for shipping or something!

Otherwise no go!

Thanks

I agree with you DannyBai

ALL I can say is WOW!!! Truly shocked.  Damn apple really did something magical with these it seems, I'll eat my own words, my big fat mouth you bad, bad.  ha

 

Glad you are enjoying them that much eke, makes me want to try them so bad now.  But I still wouldn't pay $30 for earbuds cuz they hurt my ears, maybe for $15 I'll cop. I rather get a set of S400s for $24 tbh. I knows it's a bad comparison bla bla bla. LoLs

Oh boy! The XB90Ex has stiff (and cheaper) cheaper. Competition. The Final Audio Design Adagio III rolled in today, and out of the box it's like hearing a freakin' high-end subwoofer without covering the mids or treble. The soundstage is wide as hell (if you like piano you will hear it in it's full glory). This bass is deeper and punchier than the CKM500's bass without sounding muddy. Quantity and quality bass aplenty! These are impressions with less than 15 minutes in my ears!! Wow. Treble is not as sparkly as in the other IEMs, but nicely extended. But this is definitely a bass and mids emphasis IEM (like the XB90, but better to my ears than the Sony). As for clarity and details, both are there but not as expansive as the JVC D70 and D80 (yet neither of those touch Adagio III in bass, and I think FAD beats those in wide soundstage but but I need more burn-in and A/Bing time). Don't get me wrong though, the FAD is presenting a lot of details and clarity is really decent. 

The FAD, right now, is how I wished the CKM500 sounded (the FAD is not as syrupy or obscuring details in the mids, but still has some powerful bass). The sound of the Adagio III screams power!!. It uses it's patented BAM technology that apparently moves a lot of air with dynamic and BA drivers. Yet, the sound is a bit drier than the JVCs or the Sony. That's it for now, more later. I can say, however, this is a hell of an IEM for $73. Out of the box about a couple of steps behind the JVC D70 and D80 in total sound enjoyment. Can't wait to see what burn-in does for these babies.

Uh oh, do I need these?  I have the Final Audio A, S and SA coming in next week for audition so I'll see what the FA sound is all about first. I believe the ones I'm about to hear are armatures though.

From what I've been reading DannyBai, no FAD really sounds the same (meaning the different categories such as Forte, Adagio, Heaven, etc.). And there can be significant tuning differences in the same categories. This was one of FAD's entry into the more affordable dynamic offering. There is a Adagio II before this that I've read sound great too, but not with this type of bass (it doesn't have the BAM system in it). Do you need them? No. Do they sound like anything else you have heard? Based on your posts I don't think so (although there are some similarities here and there that are a mixture of different IEMs). Do I think you would highly-like/love the sound signature? Yes I do.

Accessory Jack. Build quality on the shells and chord seem solid, but it's a no-frills IEM. You get the IEM and three sets of tips... that's it!! I think they are affordable because of this, and you are spending your money on the sound and FAD name. The IEM is pleasing to the eye in my opinion.

Thanks eric, I'll wait for further impressions from you but I'll take your word that these would be something I'd enjoy.  Always been curious about the FA's but didn't realize they had something affordable to try out that wasn't the earbud designed forte's.

How is the bass in the JVC FXD80?  Would it be enough for a bass head.  I decided I'm selling off my Audio Technica CKM500's because they don't fit my ears at all.  No matter what ear tips I've tried on them, my ears are just in agony.  A shame since they had such a clean sound to them.

 

Any advice is appreciated.  Just thinking JVC since my FX90's felt amazing in my ears.

I just did a quick searching on the Adagio's and looks like the cheaper Adagio iii might be a better solution than the more expensive V.  For my tastes anyway.
