. Nasty trebley sound you cant get rid of unless you eq and the vocals are distorted
What are the bit rate of your music files?
Did you get a nice seal with the eartips you used? The type of eartips you use will also affect the sound signature.
Two things are for sure though:
1) The fx40's trebles are indeed brighter than most budget IEMs, and might be unbearable for some.
2) The vocals are thin and unnatural.
Just like you, the above two factors are issues which I also have with the fx40.
From my experience, the fx40 isn't really terrible sounding overall. For certain music they can sound quite clear and enjoyable.
Its sound signature however, is just not my cup of tea, and I'm guessing that is same with you.
