    did Sony ever make a successor to the XB90ex?

    ended up ordering these. hopefully they're close enough to the XB90 I had.

    did Sony ever make a successor to the XB90ex?

    Thank you. Is there a difference between this and the XB70?

    Sennheiser IE80 alternatives?

    Just saw that the A2 might be closer to the low end vibe I'm looking for from checking out an A1 thread. Do you have experience with the A2?

    Sennheiser IE80 alternatives?

    Thank you. I didn't know Sony made a successor to the XBA H1, which I owned. I remember liking it. Does the A1 have sub bass? I recall the H1 lacking a bit in that aspect. Sony doesn't seem to market this in the US, so maybe that's why I missed it.

    Sennheiser IE80's Impressions Thread

    what i think they meant was that.. yes.. you got them from amazon, but third party resellers can also go through amazon. if your order was "fulfilled by amazon", then good chance that they are authentic. but if it was by a different company that fulfilled your order, then they might be fake.

    Sennheiser IE80's Impressions Thread

      from my own experience with these on my IE80.. the seal isn't as good as stock. they are also stiffer and taller, so the drivers are just slightly further from your canal.. which is a matter of preference if you like the sound not as close. i've since switched back to stock tips until i find...

    new Sony XB50 & XB70

    ok thanks. i had the XB90ex.. now i'm not expecting this to be better, but it'd be cool if it's decent enough.

    Sennheiser IE80's Impressions Thread

      interested in the responses to this as well, as the IE80 is pretty much the sound i've been looking for. hopefully there will be some recommendations that are just an upgrade in sound.. not in price.. as i feel like there are diminishing returns past the IE80's price point.

      i wasn't aware that the stock cable is kevlar coated.. quite possibly the cause of it becoming so stiff when exposed in cold climate.

    new Sony XB50 & XB70

      yea curious as well, as i loved my XB90. i don't think anyone has tried these new XB's yet tho. never got to try the XB60, so i can't compare how it is to the XB90. how are you liking them so far?

    Sennheiser IE80's Impressions Thread

    just joined the IE 80 club.. got mine on sale at B&H... first impression... WOW! these sound big for an IEM! i finally hear what people have been describing with the impressive soundstage and huge bass. i'm a basshead, and i won't even go past the halfway point in the bass tuners with these. i'm...

    that rubber ear rest doesn't look too comfortable in that shape.. hopefully these will be lighter than the 1000 also.

    High-end earphones for basshead :)

      good post and my thoughts exactly. as for my suggestion to the OP, my current favorite bass IEM is the Sony XB90.. has excellent sub-bass that you could really feel, good isolation, comfortable for its bigger size, and durable, as i've commuted with it everyday here in NYC for a year, and it...

    Sony Xperia Z1 Compact

      i currently have a Sony XBA-H1 and Yamaha EPH-100. also have a Sennheiser IE 80 on the way. do you think any of them will be a problem? it's the impedance that i should be looking at correct? the H1 is 40ohms, while the EPH-100 and the IE 80 are both at 16ohms.

    cool. you had the one with the Wolfson then. if the Z1c is better than the S3, then I'm sure i'll be happy with the sound. thanks!

    anyone own both the Sennheiser IE 80 and Sony XBA-H1?

    i have the Sony H1 now, but also interested in picking up the IE 80 after seeing all the great reviews about the bass, but most importantly.. the soundstage. i'm hoping someone would be so kind to compare the two. i feel like the IE 80 would probably be the much better IEM, but are there...
