Thanks I'll check em out when it is back up. These were my first headphones when i got into this stuff and were recommended by a sound guy i was friends with--son of James Coburn and with the same name, cool guy but i wish i had researched out here first.

dynafreq, seeing a Fiio E5 teamed up with that gear is a heck of an endorsement for the little thing. I might have to try one out so I can get something better going with my ES7. I run SF5Pro's outta my Zune unamped and it does alright, but the ES7 is clearly running thin. I was skeptical about the Fiio E5, but if you're running your Ultrasones with 'em, considering it doesn't cost much to begin with I guess I'm sold.

Well it is a perfect amp for me since it is so small, and it lasts for like 18 hours. It sounds pretty good with my 550s but both Fiio amps that I know about have a hiss to them. they are also poorly shielded against interference. I am very pleased with my E5 it was well more than worth the price, but you should read some reviews first.

I really would give it a proper review if I had time and if others had not already written spot on reviews.

That red shuffle looks really good, jabada. Didnt think it was that dark, it seems more light red in the apple pictures. Wish someone would make a RS remote for the ipod shaped 100% as a shuffle - would pwn to clip that thing on stuff and have a remote to the actual bigger ipod

Do you mean UE10/11?
I don't know if I would like them.
All the these IEMs I bought from my 4 trips to Japan. The UE11 would cost nearly US$2000 there, so my only option was to get the ER4S in custom shell for 1/4 of UE price. That way I was sure to have my favourite sound in customs, while the UE would be a gamble.
And in the top of that take a look at these things in Brazil:
My q-JAYS were taxed, and I ended up paying the IEMs, Fedex shipping costs and nearly 100% tax (normal importing tax is 60% but Fedex are different). Total would get close to US$400!!!!

Westone Brazil asks US$1500 for the ES1! Imagine the ES3X!
This is what you get from a third world

That Shuffle is the last red edition, not the actual.
It is dark because of my poor skills with my camera

, and poor ilumination here in my bedroom.
