I'd like to see an improved version of the Andro!I've been listening to the Andromeda on a 2-week loan and my impressions are quite positive. I like it better than the Jupiters (which were very good as well), with the Andros being cleaner, less warm in the lower mids.I like the overall balance, love the detail and clarity, pretty good timbre and coherence for an armature iem, too. Subbass extension is passable, could be better for use during commute, but I like that the...
Good call!
I'll follow up with my comparison between the ie800 and Andromeda. Although the ie800 isn't the most air-moving dynamic driver perhaps due to its smaller size, I really feel that the air moving quality gives the ie800 a leg up in terms of real bass feel over a multi-armature iem like the andromeda, as capable as it is.
Well, yes, I do hope the cable changes lead to better reliability. However, the driver is (or is also) a sound issue. Jut making a change is going to lead to a different sound, no matter what. Here, BeyerD is specifically talking about a change to allow better travel for the transducer. That should mean better headroom, meaning the speaker can play louder without the sound breaking up--it may have some audible repercussions at lower volumes, too. Furthermore, the info...
A new driver has got to have some effect, better or worse, right?
I've been using the generic tips that come with the savant. However, monster supertip foams work as well.
I've enjoyed the Andromeda and Jupiter. When is the Lyra2 coming out?
Sometimes you have to name names! I hope it works out and we get some people's take on the t8ie mrk2 soon.
I'd say peaks and resonances in the treble are what cause treble fatigue, not extension. The UERR has good treble extension, but is non-fatiguing thanks to the way the treble isn't boosted, for example.    When I switch from an iem like the andromeda to the ie800, the ie800 feels a lot less fatiguing. It's like a relief to my ears. That's not saying it's better, per se, just that there is a lot less treble fatigue going on. I actually like the andromeda a lot and am...
This could be very promising if the clarity and reliability are improved!
