The results were very similar across the board with my different sources. The MH1C is actually more power hungry than the FXZ-100 to my ears. I really don't think I had any issues with fit or driving capabilities.

IP4 output impedance is below 1 ohm and I think it can throw about 2v so should be fine. Few DAPs look this good on paper.

No prob! Though, all the credit should go to kiteki. He's the one who introduced them to me.

Just listened to all those tracks on my IE8's - they reproduced everything thrown at them with aplomb. Great bass and since they have a few hours on them - very present highs and mids. I keep the bass screw on the minimum setting as that is all the bass I really need - the bump like mad - Just got finished listening to some RATM - the opening salvos in some of the tracks are simply amazing. I hear there is a remastered version of the RATM disc - I wonder if there is an audible difference between the discs.

The IE8 is a very good iem. It used to be the best dynamic driver iem you could get. I personally prefer it over the newer IE80.

 

Unfortunately the market is now flooded with fakes.

 I've had the FXZ100 for a while now and i always have a hard time describing it's sound signature, it's quite odd to me.

After reading your review though, I found the words that i wanted ! "nasal", the mids are indeed nasal and sounds a bit heavy, perhaps from slight bass bleed.

Overall, nice review, I completely agree with you :)

I think the FXZ100 has a great potential, if it was tuned better it could have much more love.

 

It's definitely not the sound i'm looking for and i'm trying to sell mine but no one seems to want to buy them haha.

My experience with the FXZ100 : my ears don't tolerate them because of a peak at 4khz, same problem for me with the XBA-4. It makes them sound harsh and unnatural in the upper mids. And sometimes unbearable with female voices ("nasal", as Eke stated). However, with my Cowon iAudio 10, I tried FXZ100 with an equalization of -7db at 4khz, and the FXZ100 have become very good balanced iems to my ears. But equalization, for me, is not an option with these.
