Although this sample is intended for the Greek media, I have decided to provide a Headfi review and will probably include comparisons with Rai Penta, IE600 and FDx.
FD7 comparisons, please.

Comfort is on the same league as with the IE900 although it is a touch heavier.
But regarding fit I would rate it as better, at least for my ears.
It isn't as small as the IE600 so it is much easier to get a tight and comfortable fit with the Final audio tips where in the IE600 I can only use the foam tips since I didn't have any luck with the silicones.

Darn, order placed. That free 2.5/4.4mm cable offer in the HK market is too enticing.

And this is something that they should do for all markets, since most of the competition comes with two different cables or modular plugs.
