Have Grado 80, want IEM´s. What to choose?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I would like to upgrade the sound, and change to IEM´s.
Sound should be engaging and not over analytical. Good soundstage and instrument body is also important.
I´d like a bit more slam in the deep bass than the Grado´s, but not to bloomy.
In home fi I like modern tube sound.
I listen to rock, jazz, EBM/electronic and sometimes pop and classical.
My source is a Iphone 3G, I don´t use amp and always use lossless.
Is the triple.fi´s the IEM I´m looking for?
Or should I look for other IEM´s instead ?

Yeah, I think you want either the Triple.Fi or the Sleek SA6.

I came down to choosing between those two and went with the SA6. I'm fairly happy with them so far, though there seem to be some on going quality control issues. For example, the chrome cover on one of the drivers has broken loose already. Its only a cosmetic defect, but still... Really disconcerting on a product that costs this much.

The thing that the SA6's really have going for them is great sound for their price and size.

I'm really impressed with the range sleek has managed to cover with a single armature design. Unlike most other single armatures it doesn't feel like you are missing either the low end or upper frequencies.
