wait for rickysio to come in, he seem to be quite the fan.

My friend spoiled his HJE-900 accidentally by submerging the HJE 9000 into his drink for 10mins. Now it is so hard to get one.

@sportster79 do u consider it top tier the sound? If it is the can consider get custom sleeves lor. @takaki now hje900 is hard to find for cheap. But if if is really top tier then 99 gbp isn't too expensive. Anyway wat did your friend think of it?

sibilant? not really... it just has lots of bass and a great emphasis of highs. just like TF10. i sold mine at 160 u know , mids are the most impt to me and if it doesnt have that then it'll go. If u listen carefully the bass super damn alot on some songs but its actually quite well controlled. Its highs were too much for me so i used comply tips, and also because the stock tips were **** and i couldnt get sony hybrids to fit properly. Considered one of the best dynamics though.

Like Sora, one of my most impt requirements for my IEMs is to have a quality midrange tone as well due to my listening genres, this is also partially the reason why I have never really liked the TF10 as much as they seemed to be the popularised IEM in this forum. I do prefer the mids on HJE900 more than TF10 though, but that still doesn't deny the fact they have very accentuated lows/highs just like TF10, giving a V-shaped like sound spectrum in terms of their native sound sig. Also in terms of overall build quality and comfort wearing fit I do personally prefer the HJE900 over TF10 for sure.

For those of you who are still interested in the HJE900, if you still can find a pair online I would suggest you to grab it asap, as I had already mentioned on a forum thread started by rickysio previously, the HJE900 has already being EOL-ed by Panasonic in JP some mths back, and they seemed to have being phased out in the US as well, though I am not exactly sure why these are still being sold/avail in the UK.

My 2 cents.
