absolutely agree, another vote here. I sought these out and sort of gave up acquiring them in the states.
Oh dear... I can see how this is going to escalate. Every time EE do local Special Editions, you start calling around for friends in the area to get your hands on them. In a year or two you will be like a spider in a web with a global network of friends who have your back, working under the name "Help SeeSax collect SE foundation". Meanwhile Jack is scratching his head why his local Special Editions keep popping up in the States all the time. :D

I think I should just become the local distributor for Special Editions, although none would ever actually get sold :)

My Valks are coming home. I hope my fit is right this time. I'm stoked!
Please post pics once they do! Would be nice to see which design you chose.

On that note, I'm looking at buying a customer Legend X during the Black Friday sales and I'm looking to buy either of the limited edition faceplates (both sides, my ocd can't deal with asymmetry haha) or going understated with a Onyx black faceplate with gold wings and a translucent coloured shell. Ive searched the EE instagram page and have come across a few nice photos but if anyone who has any of these combinations wants to show off their beautiful customs to help me decide It'd be greatly appreciated!

My Legend X should be coming in the next week or so... I got them to look like this. Saw this on their Instagram and couldn't resist.

+1 on the Legend X, took advantage of those Black Friday (or did they once again take advantage of me), and ordered a universal

I generally much much prefer customs to universals, but the EE IEMs have fit me better than any other I've tried so I decided to go down that path for now.

Could you guys make some cable pairing suggestions? Something to maybe calm down the midbass a little bit and give them a touch more midrange and treble

Did swap the cables between my Valkys and interestingly both are more balanced now (to my ears)

LX - Eros
Valkyrie- Ares

Edit: cleaned the double reply.

Get an affordable Eros II 8 wire.
THanks
Got an Eros to pair with it. Slight difference,

Interesting. I think I will hold off a bit, as I have two Eletech cables arriving soon, and i'd like to do some extensive testing on the LX with a bunch of different cables before picking a specific one for it :)

I'll certainly keep the Eros under consideration though

plussound have 20% off ... I’ve heard silver + gold is a good pairing for the legend
That would be great actually, cause I have the SIlver + Gold poetic series from them just laying around - might be a perfect pairing
