They issue a full refund, right?
this is really personal, it is your decision anyway. But I wanted to go for Livewire as it is ultra portable, I can achieve stunning SQ audio on the go, and it is a custom, so, I hope my complaint about my discomfort with my Ety er-4p will go away.
My first impression to IEM was how detail I can get for such a small earphone, and I actually enjoy the "close in" sound as you describe, and I don't mind to compromise that as I've total privacy with these things. And in fact, I can feel that it is really not that closed in and I can get a little bit of soundstage when getting use with them, maybe it is the details of the really good separation of sounds that creating a "virtual" soundstage? I'm not sure.
Why not u give it a chance and try to get use a little more with it? It took about 3 weeks before my mind tell me it is really really good, and I prefer it over bulky headphones actually, and I can bring it everywhere I want. Hope I can convince you a little.
