  The M5 fit is very similar to the K1. Both are designed to sit more shallowly in the ear than the Spark, I think.     Hmm… I’ve never used an IEM for gaming but I would expect you want soundstage width and good stereo separation. Silver Bullet would be fine. So would an Astrotec AM-800 or even LG Quadbeat if you don't want to spend a whole lot.      The fun thing about this is that it makes them impossible to A:B properly without volume matching. I don’t have a source...
  Agreed, I thought the cable was superb and the fit is great.   I will review them but probably not for a while. The uptown is very similar to the midtown, just has a midrange bump and a touch less midbass for a more balanced sound. Mine also has a 3-button remote (as opposed to the 1-button on the midtown). I never did figure out which was supposed to be the higher-end model. PNY's website lists the midtown at a higher price but has the uptown described as "top of the...
  A used Yamaha EPH-100 would probably be your best option but failing that there's the Shure SE215. Dynamic driver and high isolation.
Looks like you don't have to choose between the Lime Ears LE3 and LE3B anymore - the new LE3SW incorporates a switch that swaps between the sound signatures of the more neutral LE3 and bassier LE3B models reviewed in this thread at a 50€ premium over the regular LE3. Very interesting option IMO.     http://theheadphonelist.com/category/news/ 
  I'm not familiar with either of those brands.     Yes, I would say it's one of the more forgiving of the IEMs I'd call "neutral". The RE-600 even more so, but also a lot more expensive.      I would recommend an impedance adapter as well for the R-50.     Not sure, I don't have very small ears. I thought the tips on the EPH-100 were surprisingly comfortable vs how they look. You might want to ask in the long EPH-100 thread - surely someone with an EPH-100 has small...
  I only have the regular NT6, not the pro. The Pro has an extra crossover and an extra bass driver and is said to have more bass, which is not necessary IMO as the NT 6 already improves on the ER4S with much better subbass response and more natural, fleshed-out bass overall. The 1964-V3 sounds way too colored to be an Ety upgrade.   I haven't heard the a-JAYS. The t-JAYS were somewhat mediocre-sounding and the j-JAYS were crap.     I think the RE-400 is more forgiving...

Posted a short article on IEM fitment on InnerFidelity, now linked on the front page of this thread:   Yep, will add them when I get a chance. There seems to always be several in-progress reviews I want to finish ASAP.    I do use the Fidelios as a benchmark these days and even included the S1 in the short buyer’s guide.     The MH1C and Trident aren’t notably v-shaped IMO. The Quadbeat has some cable noise, though it’s a little better than the MH1C. The EX300 and FX40...
  The SHE3580 isn't even that bassy. JVC FX101, maybe? JVC cable is quieter, too.   Yes, there's a good chance I'll get to try them soon.
Upcoming release from EarSonics: http://theheadphonelist.com/category/news/         I think you’re thinking of the Lime Ears LE3B. The LE3 is pretty neutral, maybe slightly warm but no more so than a HiFiMan RE-400, for example. The CTM-200 doesn’t have any more deep bass than the Etys (in fact, I think it drops off a little more quickly) so it doesn’t really fit your requirements. The Alclair Reference has the bass but lacks the level treble of the Etys. It sounds more...
