Have any of the "old timers" compared the Ephs to GR07 or FXT90?
I have briefly compared them to the GR07's here in this thread. For example:
They just make the GR-07's sound so dry, so lifeless, so small ; )
Will elaborate when they reach the 50 hours. All I can say for now is that this is other league and I prefer them to the UM3X. Ok, enough said for now
hey archy121, best post in this thread. Totally agree with you. All have imperfections. There's NO perfect IEM, at least that I know. Example: $400 SM3 are way too dark and have some other flaws as bass, soundstage and instrument separation, for eg, $400 UM3X treble is a bit on the (too) bright side, cymbals don't sound 100% realistic, $500 Sony EX1000 is way too lean (and didn't like the treble and bass and separation as much as the UM3X), $400 Monster Miles Davis Tribute and Turbine Pro Copper play on other league, can't compare, etc, etc. Not to mention we all have different ears/tastes.
BTW, EPH100's bass has nice texture, just compare it to the boomy IE8's bass and even the SM3's ; )
