I was in your position. "Was" because I did pull the trigger. ...and while I am playing the waiting game I want to say a few things:
I was considering IE80 and H3 as an option. I've been following the Sony for many years and they have this habit of making the ultimate product to shake the market and show that they are still masters of their art (MDR-R10 comes to my mind). I really did like the idea behind EX1000.
Now I've read the opinions about the sound, but you know while we're all in different places on scale between deaf and Beethoven. The majority of reviews I read ended up with something like "Best choice if you listen to acoustic music". Well, I do mainly listen to jazz and classical music. I decided to check this wonderful list and well, those are one the cheapest headphones with 9.3 in sound department (why the hell all CIEMs are at the top? THE PRICE?), considering the discount I got... I decided, why not?
Hope to get them soon.
