i've read review about Sony XBA1, it is exactly the sound that i am interested in. foward mids , enough bass, detailed...
but when i search for it in Amazon. I realize that there are 2 version of XBA. i don't know the iphone version can be used on other smartphone or not ?
because i intend to use it on sony smartphone and iphone .
so if it can not be used on both device , can you guy recommend me another replacement for it .
thank you very much for reading, i'm not goot at Eng :D:D

Have you looked at the Apple In Ear Monitors?

The most underated iem out there.

Paired up with a Comply Foam Whoomp, it leaves others in the dust.

Just sayin, Jim

I have both the SE215 and XBA-2, I ony put down $110 for the sony, and to be honest I think they sound like an $80 set of IEMs, the mids are very weak and boring, vocals seem to fade in and out and the treble is very dull, yet harsh, and as for the bass... it is very clean, but nothing special, ive heard the xba-1 and i feel the same way about those..
The SE215s perform better, better in the mids, highs, but the bass is more bloated. also, the soundstage on the 215s is a little more narrow, but much more realistic, the sonys just sound loud and messy...
