When the XBA3's were behaving oddly I replaced with my backup E10's, and I swear I couldn't notice any difference O.o
Placebo effect? Because I was trying a pair of $350 IEMs I fooled myself into thinking these were sounding better that My $30 E10's?
Anyway, I think I need to sit down proper with my E10's, XBA2's and XBA3's and try and sus out which IEM I prefer the most (the XBA3's certainly do isolate more than the E10's, if i have my music off I can hold a conversation with my E10's still in ear, not possible with XBA's).
Point of story, u don't have to spend much to enjoy superb sound I guess.
thats actually true you just need to choose the right one at right price
and thanks to you guys i got myself the right one
