Just got a demo pair for a nice discount. Local shop said I was just the second person to try them. My only quibble so far is that some treble attacks can sound a bit sharp. Is this just how they sound or might it change with break-in? I also admit that after a couple years with the M50 and my UE18 Pros I might need a bit more bass oomph. We'll see if I can reprogram my ears.

  i can get both for the same price and i am listening to mostly classical and vocal music with some EDM inbetween . Do you think the FSP be a better choice?


Definitely. I have minimal experience with the V-Moda but I honestly didn't find it to be that great other than for bass. Classical and vocal is no contest.

  Yeah i saw that most people like the vmoda for the bass and FPS are realy great overall headphones except for theire build.Thanks for the fast response.


…I actually bought the FSP for the build… whoops. Maybe they only look rugged… I don't know.

m100 vs focal the fsp is a much better choice imo.

Urgh. I ordered the Focal Spirit Professional from China on the 6th. It arrived in the US on the 11th. The USPS tracking has not updated since then. It's been six days now. So impatient. -_-
 
Think I should start a USPS investigation or just wait it out?

  uh when i ordered smth from china(big retailer) it took 3 months to get to me. Hold up for a week more .

 
But how long was it stuck in customs / the postal service in your country?
 
My package already arrived in the US in just a few days, so that's not the problem.

  it came from china to sweden 2months and afterwards to Slovenia where it was at the post for 2-3weeks because i had to pay extra taxes.

 
Ah, okay. It's nothing like that for me; I'm just waiting for the tracking to say something other than that it's processed through the USPS sort facility.
