I have the regular GT3's and they are incredibly detailed. The different filters do change the sound profile but I only use them with a source where I can adjust the EQ (most often my LG V60) otherwise they can be a bit fatiguing. The build is good and I like the shape. The filters are delicate but ADV will replace them if they break.

gonna snatch one. Seems a good deal, nowhere else to find same price. Please let me know if any of you found a better price on the interweb! :P

I've been looking with an IEM that's hard to drive, seriously. I have to deal with crappy sources away from home in the P.A. world with a high output impedance and @kukkurovaca 's comment about good mids is making me very tempted...

You are one very extremely strange individual, I dig it. I don't know why you're afraid of Wireless I heard nowadays especially with ldac it's pretty much lossless, well with ldac it's completely lossless. I COMPLETELY agree with the attenuator, FA9 iems has a 16-32 ohm switch built in, it's amazing, probably what you're looking for actually. I have owned them for the past couple of months and they sound almost identical to my v14 iems, they definitely punch above their weight. Fa9s are great. You know what I'm actually trying to sell the FA9, I think I might sell them because I'm not trying to have a collection of headphones when I can only wear one pair. (v14) Can you notice a sound difference between AAC/android codecs and wired?

Lol, no its not that I dont like using wireless, I love good wireless. PA systems dont support bluetooth-out about 100 percent of the time, which means bluetooth DAC/Amp's are essentially useless and the only reliable way to process a signal on the artist side is through analog. Wow the Fa9 do look good, however, typically the output impedance for PA is between 10-50 ohms which means that if I want to follow the impedance matching rule of 8ths I would need to use an impedance of at least 160-ish ohms which is why the 80 ohm impedance of the ADV Gt3 superbass was appealing. Still, I will keep an eye out for specials on the Fa9, I have a pair of FH1's and I like the way Fiio uses their BA's. I can notice the difference between basic android codecs but Aptx and AAC are much harder to tell the difference on. The basic android codecs (a2dp and the like) sound compressed, unnatural and can have digital/grainy sounding high end. One of the interesting things about digital compression is that the highlights of a song (e.g. sax solo) don't stand out in the mix as well and get more covered up which is something that a lot of bluetooth codecs share. However, this is me being super nitpicky and realistically in day to day usage I dont notice it unless the bluetooth controller on the receiver side is particularly bad. The main things about bluetooth IMO are noise floor, that disgusting sounding high end and instrument separation on inferiors codecs.

I have a set of these with many hours of use. Here's my summary lifted from a post I made on head-fi some time ago. Tl;dr, I love them but they have a weird tuning and are hard to drive. MSRP is too high, but $150 is a good price for them. (I got my pair for the original introductory price of $200.) Bass presentation: Despite the name, the Superbass is not that bassy stock, and the tuning emphasizes the mids much more than the bass. But the subbass extension is very good, and it can be pushed with EQ quite a lot. Very much detail-oriented rather than impact-oriented bass. Overall sound: Stock tuning is oddball. Flattish with a wonkily rolled-off treble. Mids are fantastic, however. (Should have called it the GT3 Supermids.) Applying a roughly U-shaped EQ helps a lot and results in one of my favorite IEMs. Soundstage: Wide, shallow, and sometimes positional cues are wonky Drivability: Requires a lot of power for an iem, but is not sensitive to source impedance. (People often exaggerate how much power IEMs take to drive, but these are actually low-sensitivity and high impedance and should be driven with an AMP or a well-powered DAP.) Comfort/build/accesories: Very good stock cable. Tips did not make an impression on me either way. Case is functional. The GT3 steel construction feels incredibly solid, but it is possible for the shell to come apart if the glue fails. This happened to my first pair. CS was very responsive and replaced my set. These are a bit on the heavy side for their size, but they are quite comfortable and if you swap out the cable for one without earguides you can wear them down, if that's your preference. Isolation: Noise isolation is really good for a dynamic driver.
