Haha. Yeah, I know what you mean. You know the feeling when you listen to an IEM for the first time, and you have that epiphany-like experience? And you tell yourself, "I want this". LOL. Happens to all of us, I guess.
Heh, I wish.. as things go, I will have to compare them to each other I guess.
The best thing I would say is not to try to impress us with anything too specific or ridiculous terms. Keep it simple and be honest.
I was at the Sony Store a few days back, hoping to get a glimpse of the Z5/7. It's a shame they weren't around, but I managed to get my hands on the PHA-3. They are huge, and using them as a portable amp is quite out of the question (unless you enjoy weightlifting, of course). What was really bad about its design was the volume knob - turning it was quite difficult from the perspective of a portable amp.
these are now in stock at the Sony Stores in Canada. They look good but I just can't buy two $700 products at the same time. So just got to look at the box LOL. Really wish they would set these up for audition. Hell force people to buy a pair of tips to try them, that would separate the tire kickers from the buyers LOL.
