Back on topic - Fostex IEM hype...I can feel it...it's gonna happen...no way a $100 IEM with that amount of cool features and sounding the way people are describing it will go under the radar...

Best stuff of the show:  Vali, Asgard II, Fostex TE05, Geek, Vanatoo, Lau, Teton, LcdX ($800 too much though), dBel's LCD3 modded.  Sanders and Venture speakers.

Mediocre/hyped:  Senn amp, Auralic (overly bright and analytical), JDS portable DAC/amp, Pinnacle, Violectric, Sony and Fostex Desktop players/gear (liked Fostex's stuff better than Sony's), WA7 Fireflies (better w/ PS upgrade but not enough to beat certain Schiit on SQ alone).  Focal pretty much all around (headphones, speakers, headphone amps).

Worst stuff:  JBL room, Fostex prototype ortho, Westone's new universal IEM connectors other people are also using (they almost lost 4 earpieces), BMC, Aurisonics, Audeze DSP (best used in bypass mode, meaning not at all), RSA A10.

Honorable mention: Ray Samuel's Boulder 1021 CD transport

Pretty decent: RHA 750 (Fostex TE05 kills it though), Phillips headphones, Woo WES and Monoblocks (not even as bad as some competitor lunatic fanboys say).

^ HYPED!!!

This turd brings up a great point with the Fostex. See how the hypes intertwine....

Fostex iem is superbly neutral, clear, not warm, not analytical, just right. Probably the best reference sounding headphone or iem ever made for around $100 imo. Stunning. Probably ditch the b2 and ba200 as backups unless they mess up production units. Makes you wonder how they make that and eff up the ortho prototype.

 

How do they compare to the RE-400?

Slaughtered. Unless you prefer coloration.


...  I cannot speak for potential issues such as:


1-Fostex changing the production unit.
2-Mucking up fit and tip selection. I did use my own biflanges where the unit only comes w/ singles.
3-Hearing how bad or colored your source or music actually sounds for the first time. 

^ Step aside lowly schiity built Chinamans!!! :p

Maybe nick just maybe, if not you can always use those detachable cables and double them up as dog leashes. Kill two birds with one stone....even mo' better just bomb the hell outta' all the birds. :veryevil:

Good for wilderness survival in National Parks ( if you don't disappear like David Paulides  investigates ) can be used as fishing lures also, just need to install some barbed points along the housing, helps keep them in the ears when moving around out there too. Active lifestyles need active solutions.

Think about that fresh sushi while out and about, or "cat scraps " as Dr. Brule calls it.

Too many things coming out these days. Still have to nail down some CKS1000, then there's those Atomic Floyd Powerjax, now the Fostexen. Annoyage, severe annoyage. Next you'll be telling me Cardas came out with some sort of awesome IEM or something, and that Vsonic VSD1 SE are insane or something.  Then the new Fidelio lineup coming next. If I epoxied my ears closed there'd be zero issues here. And I couldn't hear the hype. Waitaminnit I READ the HYPE so that will definitely not work.

 

Hey if people have the large hoop earrings why do they need a cable shirt clip? Just a random thought :) SF go get some silicone implants. I mean err ummm the silicone earguides inplanted.

whoa! IS that little thing the speaker? And wireless?  On no that will not do, their brainwaves are too hard to figure out most times without further scrambling from that stuff.

 

What a design though.  SF is gonna look like some kind of PLAYA /  diety from the Mahabharata wearing that around. BLING it up  SF

 

You can get the optional Moldavite 'N Gold Bling Ring microphone for talking into. Pinky finger sizes only. ( did I say how hyped you'll LOOK???)
