    Shipped off to @E_Schaaf.

    The original box was a bit tired, so I re-packaged.

    Back on my Orions this morning leaves me wanting and eager for the semi-regular eBay coupon deals. Had fun with these, thanks for the opportunity.

    en route to @JK47 , should arrive Tuesday.

    I was really sad to see these go. I'd be interested to hear the modded Periodic Be to see how they compare. While I had the FD01 I shared it with the rest of the sales team at work, and everyone was quite impressed (even though they're mostly uninitiated to the IEM world). @brencho seemed to like them quite a bit as well.

    I only used them off of my phone but I had very few complaints about the sound aside from my phone stuttering occasionally.

    I'll do my best to make time to post more detailed impressions later in the week.

    I was impressed. They are pretty even keel with good extension and engaging. Don't have the same sense of space as Andromeda and are more flat from memory but they have good timbre to make up for it and kicks well.
