I'm also hoping to pull the trigger on LZ A5, IT04 looks very interesting and I already had a FLC8s which is a good EMI.

Maybe pull the trigger on IT01 at the moment and a better DAP, cruel doubt.
also take a look at the FD01, it is also looks like something really special ,

I think he's referring to the JVC HA-FD01
I reached the same conclusion... and now I'm interested in those as well! But they look to be a lot more expensive than the A5.

I'd refrain from buying immediately, it seems like an exciting time for mid - fi range iems. I'm curious in reading up on the upcoming it04 as well.

I did remember being impressed by the resolution of the flc8s especially the mids (A whole level above the LZ-A4) and the highs were accentuated just right. The lower mids on the flc8s felt too hollowed out in my experience...
Lower mids on the FLC felt hollow? That's disappointing. That's the problem I have with a lot of IEMs, mids are too recessed or too scooped out. Right now, the Brainwavz B400 are my top IEM but I would like something with a bit more sub-bass quantity. I also tried the new Fiio FH1 but I have some major QC issue.

234€ on DD Audio (AE)... If my A4s are definitely lost, and I get my money back... Maybe this will turn into a "too much tempting for my post-Xmas budget but can't resist" xD

I think they meant the A4. I feel that way too about the A4, though I still think it is very good. I certainly wouldnt describe the Flc8 mids as hollow or recessed.

Depends how you're used to hearing vocals really. One category of iems that often don't get showcased are those that are specialists in lower mids, the ones that offer good weight and body to say male vocalists for example.

I remember comparing the dunu dn2000 vis-a-vis flc 8s, and it's easy to recognize one being greater specialist in female vocals while the other sound a lot more natural with the baritone and lower male register. Also: depending on tuning and emphasis, you can either have a leaning towards a cleaner sparkly sounding electric guitar vs something that has weight and girth.

Just my observations...

Ok. These last two iems are just gaudy lookin' ...

And they cost much more than the lz-a4 :s

(I previously owned an fx750 and those looked pretty decent)
