“ Ok first of all I will be using my Sansa Clip as my source as I feel an iem should always be tested with portable sources. I paid $200AUD for them brand new, which is dirt-cheap by Australian standards. I do not believe in burn in, especially for armature drivers - owning and listening to many iems has shown me burn-in is just a mental phenomenon where the brain adjusts to a new sound...” --ProjectDenz
For over 17 years we’ve been crafting the world’s finest custom in-ear monitors for discerning music listeners and industry pros.

“I wonder why UERM is often disregarded when picking from $1000 range. I'm guessing that it's due to "only" having 3 drivers, versus having 8 drivers per side. I can say with confidence that driver number does not equal sound quality(for the most part). Another reason I see why UERM might not be picked is its sound sig. It's perfectly flat. Personally, I love this. Reference sound with...” --kimvictor

“ These were my first IEMs, so obviously at first I thought that these were the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. But after awhile... Bass is clear and punchy. Highs are pretty clear but high mids can get a bit muddy IMO. I'll be honest, it takes a lot of work to get these to fit, and once you do, they are really uncomfortable, at least for me. ” --vleung92
“ "The TDK BA100: Like Beige Wallpaper, But..." ...I Like Them! I have all of about 4 hours of listening time with these headphones, but I don't think I need more to justify my thoughts. They are BA (balance armature) drivers so burn-in is not a factor. For this test I used my iPod Classic (no external amp and no EQ adjustments). Many, many different...” --SoulSyde

“ This is my very first pair of custom IEMs after trying almost all of the high end universal IEMs -- SE530, UE Super Fi 10, Etymotics etc. The sound of these UE11 Pros is superior in every way to all of the universal ones I had, but even more important they stay in my ear and provide a proper seal. Since my ear canals get very narrow, I found it very difficult to get any of my universals to...” --alyanm
“ The BA200 is an exceptional value. The basic sound signature is relatively flat and a slightly recessed high end. The bass is very capable for a BA headphone. While not 'loud' bass, it is fairly neutral and extends decently low. The mids are very even and smooth in the frequency spectrum. The highs are very accurate as well, albeit a little recessed in the...” --luisdent
