i cannot deny small driver flex present on my copy, but this not nearly as bad as to create any problem for me. i do not know how consistent are others copies.

IMO if anything I think these should have been around 150$ at most, but IEM pricing is all over the place nowadays.

What else would you recommend at a $200 - 250 price point? Aside from the GR07 and Re400... I don't seem to like the build of the Re400. Still waiting for the next big thing from vsonic.

If these should be $150 then er4s better be under $100.... but yea I agree IEM pricing is really all over the place.

If you're not obsessed with having unlimited detail, for presentation alone I'd recommend the FAD Heaven V.

I suspect I will get a bit of disagreement here. wink.gif

I had a chance to listen to a few FADs including this one and top lone FAD if i recall it cortectly and none of them impressed me except for the design. i assume you pay for the design with Fad and overpriced Japanese labour but not much else.

Let's not talk about your extremely astute assessment of Japanese labor.

You're being very vague but regardless, you're entitled to your opinion as I am to mine. I'll disagree.

I like the Heaven series. Heaven V aging and FI-BA-SS are both techincally competent and good for many genres particularly pop and vocal jazz. They sounded less fun but more natural to me than the H200.

The piano forte series though, especially PF X, I must say is not to my liking and as such I do find them overprice for what they do for me.

perhaps i must re-phrase it a bit. I found FAD sounding good but ... not for the asking price, actually i liked H200 more than cheaper FADs and their top line most pricey IEM was the only one which made me interested but only a little bit.

that is me and i do not ask anyone to agree to my opinion. for that matter i found UE RM and K3003 being more competent and interesting and better value for me personally, still 1+2 just bests them all for my ears.

High price of Japanese labour is not my fantasy but a hard economic fact, nothing against Japanese here, so please no pathetics, ok?

Who do I contact to buy in the USA?

I meant that you don't know where they are made lol. Mostly everything but the highest end models are made in their phillipines factory. tongue.gif

But calling it overpriced is a little unfair. Their cost of living is what it is. Your implication seems that there should always be people living on pennies so that products can be "not overpriced."

Sound wise. Bass is nice,well extended, do wish it had less midbass. Midhighs and treble sound funky. A bit too much crunch, lacks some definition and has a tinge of pierce. Soundstage is pretty solid, big, but not exceptional. 

 

Kimvictor's review is spot-on and IMO these are definitely overhyped, I'll take the GR07 or RE400 anyday, both preference wise and from a technical standpoint. 

 

I appreciate the comments.  I began to get a funny feeling after going through the thread initially about a month or so ago.  Your comments would seem to confirm my intuition.
