I'm planning on getting either a
XB90EX - So many have raved about the bass, and I really want to hear them! But the pricing is to high for me at the moment!
FXD80 - Supposedly the other end of the sound spectrum, although it is cheaper, I still can't afford these prices!
FX40 - I just wanna straight up hear these!
R1's - They really just intrigue me!
I'm waiting on Dsnuts report, but I don't think I will be going for those FX31's, Sounds like they may be the neutral sounding IEMs, in between the 101s and 40s
DAMN! Money is this Worlds Problem!
I bought some FX40s over the summer, I was on vaca and accidentally left my marshmallows at home (which I think sound awesome). In Alaska everything pretty much is 1.5X more expensive than the lower 48, and I already knew that I could get them for ~$17 if I wanted to wait 4 weeks; I didn't
Managed to find them at a store finally and grabbed them for $30 lol
Well, and this used Galaxy S "Fascinate" for $75 a week before I left! The two combined = pure awesomeness! Voodoo Sound kernel code really makes that WM8994 shine, and those FX40s amazed me more than the Marshmallows had lol
I had previously been a Shure believer (as my avatar may indicate) and I gave them up for those Marshmallows, but I don't ever foresee them coming out of their case now! The lows are great for the electronic-created music I listen to (Trance, Industrial, that sorta stuff), but the mids and highs aren't washed out. Actually, pre-break in the highs were a bit too harsh, which I worried about, but no longer are an issue. These are also the first earphoness I've had that I've felt zero desire to adjust the EQ with
Sucky thing is that their cable really is crappy (does anyone offer a quality-done custom recable service?) :\ The shape is a bit awkward, but I've gotten used to it and it is overlookable given what they offer. Lastly, but totally unimportant IMO, the black paint on mine I notice is coming off on part of it and revealing the silver base color heh
If they were $10 again, I'd buy two more pairs just to have backups!
