Awesome write up.
The 232's are perhaps my all time favourite headphone. Don't know where I'd be without them to be honest.
I want to get customs quite soon though meaning that I found your review very useful!
So I read the whole threadFunny - I was about to do the same thing. I read the first post and skipped to the last. Bad habit nowadays :) I've come across this resolution stuff before and the math/validation here is solid in my opinion. With two files of the exact same recording/mastering, my ears have never been able to tell a difference.
The phonak 112's would be good enough then. Very small, light and perfect for those with fit problems.
Basically if one is having fit issues with these phonaks, then no iem is going to fit (custom molds might be different).
Try phonak 112 (grey / black filters). Awesome.
If you want something ultra-awesome go the one step further and the phonak 232's will no doubt impress. A 200hr burn in is needed (worryingly large improvement from burn in!).
(plus I think you meant to title the thread 'Newbie!')
Hi mate - please don't get them senn buds. They're not good at all.

I've come across these ones and they're...
I reckon people who want to buy it are waiting for the boxing day sales to start - 10% (at least) off everything in store. Save a cool £2k. I remember that same floor used to have a snooker table selling for £1,000,000. Pretty sure the person who bought it did so in the sale period!!
You need a warm sounding headphone with ear space, pads, definitively larger than the mdr 1r.
Closed or open? If open then something like the beyer dt880/990 or similar variants would be a good choice.
