    So give some more info on these: so you don't have to go to FiiO's page and sift through the promotional literature and fancy pictures:

    This is FiiO's flagship IEM at the moment with 12mm Beryllium Dynamic Driver. Crazy thing its, impedance is 50 ohms, with a sensitivity of [email protected] Now that may not sound that crazy but pretty much all their other drivers are 32 ohms. and most IEM's are around 16 ohms.

    It of course has three sound interchangeable tubes (nozzles) to custom tailor different sound signatures that they are calling "vast soundstage", "balanced sound", and "explosive bass" respectively. Graphs from @Crinacle does not show all the nozzles, but the FR still looks very good and promising.

    Also, this has a pure silver MMCX cable with an interchangeable end connector for 2.5 (bal), 3.5 (unbal), and 4.4mm (bal). Certainly and interesting way to do things without separate cables for each connection.

    Price on Amazon is $599, so not sure that is MSRP, but it is hitting a no mans land high-end price point.

    I'm not able to write a review right now, but these are pretty balanced sounding iems. No dynamic driver harsh upper mids. Not as fast sounding as the Dunu Zen Pro, but also much smoother sounding. Bass is good quality with plenty of punch and good extension. Vocals sound right. Maybe a slight treble emphasis but nothing major and it's above where it would hurt at all. If you like the Zen Pro but find them too sharp sounding, these are a great choice.
