Yeah. I'm lookin' at y'all. Sheesh.
i'm sure the KEF M200 and Klipsch X10 will live up to the hype and old hype. i'm pretty confident here.
I still love my JVC FXT90, and that hype was lived up to.
^ Welp i still think those S2 are pretty decent, but they will get better with some more burn-in. Might be kinda bright/ less coherent straight outta' the box though if you like a more colored presentation they might be a bit too neutral, hence sounds kinda boring so...... if all depends on your personal preference really.
If i can pick them up for like $50 i'll do it in a heartbeat, but there are just too many better sounding stuff out or is coming out around that $100 mark so....
Waiting to get the next game changer, those Fostex IEMs for $100 next years has A LOT of potential and praise already. Same folks that hyped the Vali said they were amazing and beats the crap outta the RE-400s. LMAO
