In the Moe shipment from Taobao, I also ordered the T114 model from a company in Taiwan called Tiinlab. I've heard absolutely nothing about this company, but they make some big claims about excellent SQ in their $60 IEM. We shall see.

Keep up the good work. The day we have tried them all we can stop hanging on head-fi......
The MOE SS01 is remarkably good for its price.
Unfortunately, I couldn't compare it directly against the FXT90, but I don't remember the FXT90 being this good. For $60, the SQ is really good. I can't say the same about the looks, though.
In other news, this is an Ostry KC06:
Don't ask me how it sounds, I don't know. That isn't my photo.
I could care less about looks. I'm a price/performance value seeker at heart, and like to make the unknown, known.
Those Ostry look intriguing for ~$55. Just placed a Taobao order. Now the month long wait on all of them. I should be getting last month's orders around now :)

How about the Somic L2 then. Kind of goofy looking but I'm intrigued....
Not very much. Have you heard it? Thanks for saving me from making an mistake with them.
The L4 is the balanced armature one with that freq response. I doubt it actually drops off that badly under 100hz, but I don't want to spend the money to find out. The MH407 is crazy good though, better than the MeElectronics A161P.
The whole "London" line just seems like a pricier version of their normal IEMs focused on fashion instead of SQ.
|Frequency response (headphones)||14 - 44100 Hz (- 3 dB)|
|Frequency response||6 – 51000 Hz (- 10 dB)|
|THD, total harmonic distortion||≤0.02 % (1kHz/1Vrms)|
|Contact pressure||3.4 N (± 0.3 N) approx.|
|Jack plug||1/4" (6.3 mm) stereo|
|Cable length||3 m|
|Weight||Without cable: 330 g|
|Nominal impedance||300 Ω|
People can make the strangest of claims.
That beign said, I can't knock it until I've tried it (the Somics that is)
TwinQY: You are right about specs being far from the truth very often that's why I wonder if Hal Rockwell has heard them or red something about them making the statement that he did. I for one have not been able to find much information about them.
