Can you order from AliExpress? If so, definitely keep the KZ ED9 on your shortlist. Interchangeable filters; Brass filter for detailed, balanced sound, Gold filter for bassy v-shaped sound. Both sound awesome.
 
Can't really see you finding anything better, and they are stupidly cheap too. Typical KZ, ~10-15 USD. I got mine here for 14 USD, but they can be found at other sellers for less. Might want to check out the KZ thread :)

How long was the shipping wait?

For me....about a month. Others seem to get them in about three weeks. Worth it IMO....they're pretty nice :p

Hmmm interesting lol how are the mids and vocals?
Quite nice. A bit pushed back using the Gold filters (v-shape after all). The brass filters should do the trick for you.

Lol, I still have a red pair. The ED9 IMO are easily an upgrade. More refined sound all around, without the intense treble of the FX40. I like my JVCs. Have the FX40, FX1X, 3X, T90 (x2), FR202, FRD60, cheapo Riptidz, aaaand the s600. The ED9 can hang with and best the majority of these.

If not sold on them yet, check out Twister6's review. He knows what's up :)
