3rd pair due to them malfunctioning? I thought I had sworn off getting another in ear, but am awfully curious about those campfires.

1st pr from eglobal, v bad service, sounded off like a wire was shorting out - contacted CA they swapped advising not to deal with them as not authorised and known to sell snide goods.

Replacement pair came apart, the plastic inside had shattered inside one of the units and the tip metal piece came away from the body, probs because they're quite a weight when moving around (not in the ear) they can bang together with a bit of force, looked like a freak breakage & only had them 2 weeks. No Q's asked CA replaced, can't fault their customer service at all.

3rd set going well for a few months, no damage, audio quality is great with mainly spotify premium and the odd FLAC as source, would put them up there with others costing much more.

Had the 4 and the 4rs both were great but didn't like the way Westone went with their designs after them and I broke both pairs, the shells kept splitting so handle with care (I typically don't).

Comply's are normally ok other than they get a bit grubby after a while and need to refresh, never had a better seal with any others. I'm sure I've got a couple of bags of silicone tips, have a few spares somewhere as on my 3rd pair of Campfire Audio!

I've had then for a few years now as my Shure Se535s got run over! The designs don't look as good now I agree, plus I got them imported from the states as they were cheaper. Will have a look around. Is your case still intact? The handle on my broke Peli don't do one small enough!

They're good. Not the flagships tho, not even made in Japan, which is crazy at that price. These days you got the M9s above them, almost double the price. Then you got the IER-Z1R, elite pricing. THEN you got this crazy Japan Sony only custom shit called Just Ear https://www.sony.co.jp/Products/justear/ which is basically just for millionaires and celebrities? Base price for the top model is about $4000 then you gotta pay extra for fitting and shit.

I got a feeling that the M7s are the best bang for buck, once I figured out the high gain setting on my ZX300 they really sing, balanced need more power apparantly. Def the best portable audio (or audio in general) I've ever experienced and surpass my much loved MZ-RH1 HiMD unit. Barring failure or theft will run this setup for a decade or more, like I did with my last IEMs, the excellent EX700s. I look after my stuff. Will probably have to get the battery changed out on the ZX300 after a few years. I still hate modern tech for a lot of reasons, hardwired batteries is one of em.
