Its actually someone that the guys at Aurisonics referred me to. His name is Ted Allen. Ive been buying cables from him for a while now. The quality is definitely there.

Still tip rolling to achieve optimum sound. Trying some different foam tips ATM. Cheaper than cables.
Still very happy with the Harmony's though I wish they kept the 2 pin connectors. The swivelling MMCX connectors do not inspire confidence with regard to longevity. Synergy with Oppo HA-2 is very good.
Overall I can say they are a very competent IEM with a sound signature that suits me however YMMV. With regard to the bass I find If it's in the track it's there and if not, well, it's not. When present some might find it north of neutral but to me the perfect bass kick I look for.
Mids are ever so slightly scooped to me whilst highs are quite smooth despite reports of sibilance. Highs can be attenuated by the use of foam tips if it's an issue I guess but compared to my DUNU DN-1000's I find the highs on the Harmony to be quite smooth and detailed with occasional graininess depending on the track played.
Well mastered tracks with good dynamic range sound superb with these.
I received the FXA5 Pro for evaluation some time ago, and since then I have been quite disappointed by it as the stock tips were useless for my ears and the iem didn't sound good at all with any of my tips. So it sat in a box for awhile, until a few days ago when I pulled it out again to try it with a particular type of foam tips - the Havi Foam tips.
And there it was, a sound that not only floored me but quickly has become the ONLY headphone that I use at the moment. Unless I can find a decent pair of ASG1 Plus, these are gonna be my end game for a awhile. The way the FXA5 Pro sounds with these foam tips is just unreal. For the first time I am hearing voices trail off into the darkness and distance, for a lot longer than any other iem I have heard. The bass is punchy and has good impact as well. The iem is stupendously detailed despite being relatively warm and dark and some might find the treble relatives rolled off.
But I am hearing things in music I have yet to hear even from analytical monsters like the Venture Electronics Duke. Bravo Fender! But the included cable is some of THE worst quality I have seen, the bit near the driver housing is just embarrassing and the MMCX connector can stand to be sturdier. The cable wire is quite thin and is prone to tangling.
But I don't care about any of that, because for once I find myself forgetting about the headphones and caring only about the music. This one combination has literally changed my perceptions on what I like and don't like in terms of sound signatures. And all this from a Dual Balanced armature drivers! I can only imagine how good the others are :)
they are not that good, i had fxa7 for couple of days, i was not impressed at all for the price, i returned them
Would you describe the FXA7 as V-shaped? I guess if they are like Harmony, they have more treble then the rest of the set.
I see, sorry to hear that. One thing I found with these iems is that they seal too well with silicon tips, creating a vacuum seal. One head-fier pointed out to me it gives it a more mid centric sound, which mirrored my impressions, the top and bottom end extensions were weak with silicon tips, not to mention getting a seal with the stock tips were a PITA for me.
The Havi foam tips are not like regular foam tips, like the comply ones, so they are easy to insert and re insert. Did you happen to try them with foam tips perhaps?
No but i am waiting fxa2 to come today or tomorrow and i will try them with foam tips, i am gonna use them for bass heavy music, the bass is great for sure
