Dmitri ships from Japan, so it could take a while. Be patient, it's worth waiting for!

Other than indie rock and punk, how does the F111 fare with other genres of music?

And yes, the GR10 is definitely very comfortable, that's a plus over the huge W4s.

Has to do wit insertion depth. They're warmer with smaller tips installed deeper and more open with larger tips and shallow fit. I think they are unique in how long they take to break in. If you still have them and have already done a normal run in, Play them at about 1/2 again normal loud listening volume for a  for a couple days. They may warm up, top smooth out a bit and generally just sound more freed up. Nice review, by the way.bigsmile_face.gif I also find their harmonic texturing unique and better than the often compared E-Q5 or even some of the top custom BAs. Not saying that they're better overall but they are VG at that.

Thanks! I still own the GR10s, they're great. I'm getting the jack fixed up right now though.

I enjoyed it for classical and jazz, but those really don't make up too much of my listening. If you listen to a lot of jazz, I can see the F111 being perfect, since it's got great mids and very accurate.

Still using the stock cable. While I do think that cables can change sound quality, some of it is not necessarily for the better (I don't love silver on the HD600s) and I usually only do so if it improves usability. The cable on the F111 is quite nice, so I have no real desire to change it.
