Well a review score should not consider using an EQ, mod or dragon silver cables that cost more than the product itself. So the 9.3 is rubbish when compared to W4 or UE900. That's all I wanted to say.
Anyway, I love my FX700 and I will keep them. But I don't consider them hifi.
I still don't agree lol, but we all do hear things differently. My MDR-7550s are super neutral and I still feel the FX700s are just as detailed as them. I haven't had an opportunity to try out the W4 but from the multiple reviews and comments I've read on it I gathered I'd find them rather boring and dull so I never considered them as an option. To be honest none of these IEMs you mention may even be considered hifi to begin with (more so med-fi). More so when you move up to the higher end Custom IEMs/Universals or full size headphones do you really start getting into that territory.
