Yes, I had the IE800 for two months and really enjoyed it. I liked the sub-bass emphasis on the low end, and the very clear "dry" sounding midrange.
The K10 is a step up with a different tuning. The bass is more balanced between sub-bass and mid-bass on the K10, while the midrange is warmer and fuller while still keeping excellent clarity and detail. It's the treble where the K10 really sounds much better to my ears. The K10's sweet and smoothly extended treble has a nice fullness to it that I like a lot, while the IE800's treble seemed thin for the rest of the sound signature. The total package of the K10 is very hard to beat. Having owned the K10 for several months now, it's still very much a favorite.
