right now i am contemplating a purchase between the HJE900 and FX700. i will need all the details and advice i can get before i waste my money again.
i own the panasonic hje270 and i love the natural sounding mid bass that has adequate quantity, quality. love the sub-bass that has adequate rumble. overall sound has a good decay/fade out, rather unique feature of the panasonics earphones i believe. overall sound maintains tone accuracy even when volume is turned up, no metallic or changes to tone of bass, mids, treble, no piercing sound when volume turned up. fatigue free for 6 to 8 hour nonstop listening. sibilant treble but never piercing which makes it tolerable.
sunrise xcape impressive edition = too wide separation between instrument and vocal making it seem unrealistic sounding and overall slightly veiled.
sunrise xcited (20 hours burnt in, still burning them further) = bass is unnatural sounding and significantly lesser in quantity compared to hje270. sub-bass is lacking in quantity compared to hje270. highs too sparkly, better clarity than the panasonic hje270 but too fatiguing for long hour listening, treble piercing to ears (deal breaker) if volume is raised.
