And the artifical sound has completely gone away. The CAL is still clearer sounding overall, but one some songs the clarity of the FSP is REALLY impressive, even better than the CAL, but not in an artificial way.

 

I also think that the FSP sounds just SLIGHTY more realistic than the CAL. They have almost the same realistic tone, except the FSP sounds better with guitars, pianos and drums.

It just keeps getting better and better! :beerchug: lol

I was so on the fence about the FSP but too bad they didn't come with a carrying case and it was more expensive and now I kinda regret it... Stuck with my One S... the FSP is easily the best closed back headphone that I've auditioned (I never heard the fostex or denons before though).

The FSP I bought came with a hard portable carrying case! (But normally, it only comes with that thin piece of fabric. lol) Anyway, portable headphone cases are dirt cheap.

How did you manage to swing that deal? I was talking to my local HiFi store and I was like if you can throw in the case of the One S (from the One S box that was already opened for display) I will take the FSPs... We all know how that turned out :(

I bought my FSP from an eBay seller in China for $215, brand new, but it only came with the remote cable and that hard case.

 

Just get a SLAPPA case. They're affordable and come in various sizes.
