Right, but the store where I live (not Vancouver btw) doesn't have it, and the next nearest store is far far away. Thoughts?

Well...the stores near where I live do actually have it, in Victoria. :P  But unfortunately, Victoria.

Look forward to see what you have to say after a good sitdown..

 

I have mines hooked up to my little Bravo amp connected to my Z1060. This sounds so damn good to my ears right now. What can I say. I am Uber fan of the XBA-3. Metallic mids n all.

signed up just to post in this thread.

 

recently moved from SE215's to HA-FXT90's and have been burning in my 90's for a few weeks now however I was able to jump on the 119 sale and I gotta say I think I'm gonna return the 90's keep the XBA-3's and complement them with the fxz100's in a couple months :)

 

just an FYI if it's sold out at futureshop the sony store has dropped their price to 119 as well.

 

oh yeah if anyone in abbostford or the surrounding area wants a pair I have them on hold there (abbotsford futureshop) til monday the latest. PM me and you can use my info.  Like I said I found a pair at my local sony store so didn't have to drive all the way out to the burbs lol

It's nice that you don't really need to burn in the xba3's - they just sound great out of the box (although they might get better with a few days of burn in).

 

I'm not sure what the tips are like on the FXT90's, but dsnuts really likes the xba3 sound when using the fx40's wider bore tips. And I really like the sound with the wider bore tips that I found also.

Good to know about the Sony store. I'd help ericp10 out if there was a Sony store around my neck of the woods. Btw, I checked on the online sony store, and they are asking $299 for the xba3. I like $119 quite a bit better lol!

Aren't you in Vancouver? There's a Sony Store near Broadway I think, as well as in Richmond (RC is like minutes away with the Skytrain). I know lots have gotten prices matched with the Future Shop sale price as well.

Anyone want to earn lunch money and buy a pair and ship them to the US?

Epic - I like that. Xba3 + good seal + wide bore tips = epic. Yup!

Ha ha - nice try! If I had a wife, these last few months of headphone/iem addiction definitely would not have been relationship building lol!
