I connected my old OC studio Zues Uex,I have to say improvement is far more noticeable compared to Dita Oslo.
I think for FW10000, going with high strand, high purity silver is the way to go.

That Siltech Duchess looks so good, I emailed Siltech asking them if they can make one without that bulky part.

Had these bad boys for about 3 hours in my ears. Thank you @SeeSax for letting me play with them for a few days.

Organic is what comes to mind. The tone is right. Mids are present and accounted for. Vocals and guitar are a pleasure. Crisp and clean also comes to mind. They make some of my other IEMs that I thought were not dark seem dark in comparison.

@hellfire8888 compared to Solaris (from memory). Both have special clean crisp treble. Both have bass that I like. Some may think sub bass is lacking in both as well as mid bass. I do like neutral though. I think the difference would be in the mids. From memory I think the FW100000000000000 mids outshine the Solaris mids by a few zeros.

Hopefully someone can compare the two directly and not just from memory like I am doing.

Thanks SLC1966 for the information.

So some of the reviewers that love the IER-Z1R, seem to hate this iem. Meaning chances are pretty good that my take on it will be opposite, and I will love the FW10K.
Has anyone here had a chance to listen to the RHA CL2? A comparison would be much appreciated.
Thank you

IMO the FW10000 should be heard within the manufacturer’s advertised system. They’re designed to be used with a dual-balanced connection. Even then, the sound takes hundreds of hours to mature. Initially, it was easy to spot the faults, and go back to listening to older gear—the FW01.

These days, my FW01 is an afterthought. I’ve simply never heard my music collection until I heard it through the FW10000 — they are that good.
