All the phones you mention are great iems and when you get to this price range i dont think i could really say that eny one is better than the others,they all have there strenghts and weekness ,it really comes down to what sound signiture your after and fit ,isolation etc
yeah i know. in this price range most of the IEMs are gonna sound good everyone with their own sound signature. right now i favour the W3 even though they might be prone to sibilance. i want to have an IEM with a clear and natural sound. not too less bass and not to much bass neither. it has to have a wide soundstage as well.
the turbines don't seem to sound that natural and a bit too bassy as i've heard??
i still think they are good earphones though.
as you said a couple posts above that you would prefer monster turbines above W3s any day i conclude you have listened to the W3s before right?
what exactly is it that you think the turbines do better? what kind of music do you listen to?
