Last time I checked the EX800 was a very hard find. To my knowledge when Sony was still producing them they were only available in Asia. I've always wondered about that IEM. It seems like the IEM that people either outright hate or really love. Do you have a pair Muppet?

The EX800 is the same as the 7550; it's just the name it goes by in Japan.

Tangster from what I've read the 7550 is a lot like the 600 and 1000 the big difference being it's treble isn't as forward and harsh sounding as the other two. It's supposedly pretty smooth sounding up top. The EX600 is considered the poor mans version of the EX1000. Some users have said the EX1000 only brings an added 10 or 20 percent improvement over the EX600. Of coarse other peoples mileage may vary.

Now, that's more like it. You make it sound intriguing. Like I want to take it on.

 

It can be my gladiator, I can be it's emperor.

The important thing to remember is that in Japan it's classified under Sony's ST line for studio use. It's very much a studio monitor in the best sense. It's non-fatiguing and you can listen to it for a long time in one go.

 

Thank you.

 

I think the v-shaped signatures are comparable to this kind of photo:

Just higher contrast, still very little color even though there's more dramatic effect to it.

 

What I want is more like this:

More color. More...something else.

Edit: that last disco picture was really bad symbolism.

The Nobel Prize Foundation decided to use my interview as a part of their official video. I appear for about 10 seconds from 01:11. Fame!

What a coincidence, one of the professors that works in my institution is in this assembly:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobel_Assembly_at_Karolinska_Institutet

 

Apparently we're both in the administration board of the same study so when we had a meeting not too long ago about that certain study, he actually started talking about the Nobel prize. Congratulations though, it must feel pretty awesome to be a part of such a video. The Nobel prize is pretty prestiguous.

Koss ESP/950s or STAX SR-407s. Lush, vibrant. Not heavily detailed, but alive.

Tell them to not give the Peace prize to any US politician until AFTER they've shown that they're peaceful. Thanks! wink.gif

As MF, said it's the same. Heck, my 7550 is labeled 7550 on the IEM bodies and EX800 on the Y-split plastic.

Yeah, I've been thinking of those Koss ones to buy sometime. However, not now, too early on, too expensive and so on. But yeah, they're a realistic buy for sure.

Haha, well, these guys only decide upon the medical prize. But yeah, I see your criticism and while I don't know the details of that one (actually, the Nobel prize never really intrigued me what so ever, in a way it still doesn't, I'm no scientist) I sure hope he didn't win it because he was the first black president of the US and A - because that would be a little weak.

I thought it will be because he won hide and seek with a certain someone in the mountains.

Oh, that may be the case. As said, I have no idea about the details behind that one. The only thing I know is what I was told about the medical award on that meeting (which of course wasn't any details about any nominees or anything, so don't ask me anything). redface.gif

LOL I'm not even interested truth be known. :P

I would have preferred they brought him back in shackles to stand trial in the Hague for his international crimes. Just storming the house and murdering him in his PJs was anticlimactic and thuggish, IMO. It felt more like a summary execution, from my perspective, not justice.

The ESP/950s are the best HPs <$1200, IMO. For the often-discounted-to $600 price, they're the cat's PJs.

He won it in expectation that he'd be a great facilitator of justice and world peace, but that didn't materialize. Executive international policies changed insufficiently with his installation.
