Sorry to bump this thread, but I think it is pointless to create a new one for the same subject. After much reading in serach of an IEM, I've come down to IE8 vs PFE. I read the whole 10 pages of this thread but still haven't decided yet.
I'll be using a Cowon D2+ unamped and listening basically to classical music and jazz. I like an engaging sound experience. I like to feel "immersed" in the music. I'm more of a "Wow, that felt like I was in the concert hall!" than a "Wow, I could hear the second violin picking his nose between movements" kind of guy Not that detail isn't important. It's just not "detail uber ales" that I'm looking after. I must "feel immersed" in what I'm listening and be moved by the music.
I tried to give you the best description of what I'm looking for. Sorry if I wasn't clearer but the world of quality audio gear is new to me, so I'm not well acquainted with the proper terms yet.
Please advise me before I make a costly mistake. Thanks.
