QUOTE
For quite some time after the success of E888 earbud in the late 90’s, Sony seemed to have quitted the serious earphone market and only interested in the consumer level products. It isn’t until 2008 that EX700 marked the return of Sony to the higher end earphone world. But even so, their attention were focused solely on single, large diameter dynamic transducer based IEM (i.e. the EX series) and reluctant to venture out from their comfort zone. Thus you can imagine that it came as quite a surprise for many when Sony suddenly announced the balanced armature (BA) based XBA series about a year ago, which subsequently has became the main line of portable earphone for the company

I only enjoy the xba-4. Not enough to buy it though.

So I just visit harvey norman stores or sony centers once in a while to demo the xba-4 a few songs.

Anyone auditioned the XBA-10?
Is this gen going to be totally different signature? Or just slight improvement over the last gen?

Wah, your XBA-10 outlook is same as XBA-1. Only change black color to White color. I have one XBA-1, but the sound is not high definition.
