hmm. DBA-03 seems top secret. I suspect that they didn't arbitrarily skip a #. 3-way?

Guys does anyone know when genesis will be out and start reviewed? Because i want to wait so i can chose between them, m2 and eterna. If genesis are coming out in november like the new klipsch then i wont wait  and i will grab a deal from mp4nation at the m2's.

Lights please

Audiobase has the genesis for sale! in a much lower price than Treeo.

Also they sell the eterna rev1(!). I though this were discontinued but i guess there is new stock.

Do you believe the rev1 is much better than rev2?

Sound good!, Hopefully the sound will return fully to the original which I really love.

As far as i know, Fischer Audio didnt change it, so Eterna from this new batch have to be exactly the same.

Was wondering how the sound of the DBA2 compares to ety ER4P since both are labelled as analytical. Are there any big differences between them?

ER4P has a more neutral sound than DBA-02, and less bright on the treble. I would say DBA-02 is a little more fun to listen, more musical if you like (though by definition it is not really a fun sounding IEM). SQ wise, they are more or less very close. If you have no particular preference for a flatter sound, I think DBA-02 will be a better choice (plus it is probably cheaper).

I see, because my HF5 just broke recently and im thinking of replacing it. I quite liked the sound coming from them so im not sure how the DBAs compare. How about isolation? Main reason im getting IEMs over portable headphones right now is because of isolation (I like to listen to music on the plane XD) Do the DBA-02 isolate as well or close to what etys do?
 

EDIT: because i sent my dead hf5 to etymotics they offered to sell me a brand new ER4P for $179 which is why im asking about the DBA-02. Not a big difference in price when compared like that and if ety's offer better sound and isolation I would buy the ER4s instead because sound and isolation are the 2 most important criteria for me and i have no problems inserting triple flange tips into my ears so comfort is not an issue at all.

Nothing beats Ety on isolation really. The price Ety offers to you is quite attractive. I'll take their offer if I were you and get an P to S adapter from eBay, then you will have both ER4P and ER4S in one package.
