I have a couple options here;

Keep the RE400
Keep the 3
Get the 40's
Get the MDR-7550

The 400's seem to have the most detail.
The 3's seem good all around.
The 40's???
The 7550's seem to have the best bass and build quality.

Hmm.

MDR 7550 is a great option.
You may also wanna check Dunu Dn 1000, KEF m200, and also wait for the soon to be released Sony XBA H1, H2, H3.

+1 on waiting for the Sony Hybrid IEMs coming out, those could be a huge hit if anything like the Tpeos

I listened to hybrid t-peos h-100 and sound much worse then xba3. I don't believe in miracle but xba H-1 physically can not give sound like xba3.

Hmm lets see then, I would like them to be better but if not I'll stay with the 3's or go with the 7550, the H3 is too expensive for me right now.

I felt so surprised when I saw the XBA-3ip sold at this price in Japan 2 weeks ago.  That tray of 3ip were cleared and replaced by 2ip the next day when i came back to the shop.  This price seemed so tempting, and I am expecting XBA-30 will do the same in near future. :popcorn:

I will definitely get the XBA-30 when It drops to that price, probably soonish, with the release of Sony's new H series this month :)

 they should be similar... with only the dampening as the major change and a few changes in aesthetics.

This guy compared xba-3, xba-30, xba-40. The 30 and 40 are tuned slightly differently from previous series, two main differences are a reduced treble peak and a introduction of a bit more decay in the driver, producing a thicker sound.

I came back from japan a week ago, and yes they are all down in price i picked up a xba 4 at 13391yen after tax and using UP card, as a note the XBA 40 is 15000yen before tax, the rest of the model XBA 1,2,3,4 and XBA 10, 20, 30 , 40 are also down, i got the XBA 4 instead of the XBA 40 because the BA drives in the XBA 4 are made in japan, whiles the XBA 40 is made in china.
