I hate tip rolling so hard. But in doing so, I managed to find a pair that I could make work with these, and can wear them down now. So, much happier. Still, they should have just routed the cable through the flex arm thing like the EX1000 - at least to me that would have made more sense. I get some microphonics but nothing crazy, I'll probably try a shirt clip with them. Quote: Yeah, these are remarkably detailed especially when you consider how smooth they are.
