Hm...

 

Earlier ( http://www.head-fi.org/t/611337/jvc-ha-fx40-vs-panasonic-rp-hje355#post_8466177 ) you said you liked the Panasonic more. It also has a better build quality. (Good point.) So now which one? If I chose only one?

 

By the way price comparison in Germany:

Do you like a large amount of treble? If so, pick the JVC. If plenty of treble hurts your ears, pick the Panasonic. I like both, however with some music that has plenty of treble, the HA-FX40 hurts my ears. With recording that are treble deficient though, the HA-FX40 really shines.

I don't know. I'm not that expert in it. I mostly listen to rock, electronic and text. :)

 

Also count the fact that here in Europe I can buy the JVC for much more expensive than the Panasonic! Also the build quality matters for me to last it long.

Yes exactly. What you linked here is $60 earphones and what we are talking about here are $20 earphones.

Thanks for your recommendation JK1!

 

I bought the Panasonic (HJE355). It's OK. Does it require burn in? I can't compare it to other IEM s since I usually own one pair of IEMs the one I but after the previous one is broken. I can only compare it to the Koss PortaPro: It's clearly detailed and also has a metallic feel to its sound. :)

The Panasonic RP-HJE355 doesn't seem to change that much with burn in.
