I actually had the chance to buy the ex800st about 3 years ago, but the price was about 25500 yen, I got the ex600 instead, the shop gave me a discount as well as tax free, totally about 16000 yen, but I regret getting the ex600, not that the ex600 is bad, I think it's good in it's own way, but should of got the ex800st, now I will have 4 iem in total xba 3, ex500, ex600 and just less than a week I will get the ex800st , i'm still using the ex600 with a good burn it, the overall qualty is good.

EX600 is not as good as 7550/EX800st IMO.

How's the soundsig on the EX600? I remember it being kind of V shaped, but the last time I demoed them was last year, so I'm not sure.

Did you guys here about Sony H3, a hybrid from sony? If they managed to use the drivers from MDR7550 or EX1000 as bass drivers and some decent BAs, I bet they are going to be awesome. Even if they just use typical TWFK, they will outperform H-200 by a mile. But I'm just making assumptions here.

I'm not really a expert on using them, but comparing them against the xba 3 that I have been using for little under a year now.

I listen to slow music and  romantic/love songs that does not have heavy bass.

 

On the EX600 there is minimum bass, and the vocal is very solid and accurate, sound quality is rather low when compared to the XBA 3 with the same volume set.

 

Whiles the XBA 3, the music is very wide, instrument has more separation, but if the music source quality is bad, the XBA will show this.

 

I actually like the Ex600 better than the xba 3, the EX600 is good for home use with a system that can pust the iem to it's full potential, the XBA3 is good for on the move.

Wait, so you think the sound quality of EX600 is worse than XBA3's but you prefer EX600?

For the type of music I listen to I think the EX600 is better, I like vocal to stand out, the vocal is much solid and accurate.

Ok. Vocals are the strong point of MDR7550 too.

Victor, what are the tips that you use on the 7550?

Oh, the translucent tips are T-PEOS tips. I found them most comfortable(besides foam, but I don't like foam tips). Sony tips are very comfortable though.

I remember sampling my friend's Klipsch X10's years ago.  I don't remember how they sounded, but I really liked the eartips that came with it.  I thought his eartips were deformed due to heavy use, but they're actually oval-shaped to conform to natural shape of the outer ear canal.

Has anyone tried these eartips?  Will oval eartips fit in 7550's?

I think most likely it will be 7550's dynamic drivers.  The LCD one found in EX1000 is too exotic.

IMO, bass performance on 7550 and EX1000 is almost identical, so I think that'd be fine. 7550 drivers lacks a bit of clarity, but they have 2 BA to cover that.
