Mine arrived today.. Listening to it right now... Very first tune: Bach Violin Concerto No.2, 1st movement by Hilary Hahn.
My jaw literally dropped to the floor. I listen to this particular piece almost everyday for last 6 months with following IEMS in the order of playing time: ASG-1(EQd), B2, FXT-90, S500, IE80, HD381F, etc. and I never experience such well rounded soundstaging + clear instrumental separation. ASG-1 comes close with size of soundstage width and depth, B2 has similar treble clarity but I think XBA-3 does everything better.
just quick initial impression, but wow this thing sound lot better than $129 I paid for. Dsnuts, I don't hate you anymore
