Long time lurker, first time poster - I own/have owned Shure E5cs, Ety ER4-Ps, and more recently the HF2s. I need new IEMs, stat.
I'm looking to spend around $150-200, but willing to go over only if it warrants the stretch.
Not sure if many people still remember the sound signature of the E5cs, but while I enjoy the lows and mids, my ideal IEMs would tighten up that range a bit as I think they're a little bit muddled. To that, I'd like to have some of the ER4-Ps upper range - I just can't get enough of that clarity. As an addendum, I think the HF2s have too harsh a high-end (is it just me? or am I batty?).
In any case, looking forward to your feedback and insight - many thanks!
