I recently sold my imod& and purchased a Kenwood B9. Now I am considering just one more CEM before moving on to the desk systems, something slightly better than the ue7s I use now.
I've tried both the es3 and the es3x and find them fine, but after trying the ue18 those monitors seem two levels lower, and the ue11s just don't suit me. How would the soundstage of the ES5 be aganist the UE18(they're just too expensive)? What do these monitors actually sound like, and are they much better than the es3x?
The Ear Monitors are always said to be NATURAL. Exactly how natural are they? I am one of those who can't stand normal dynamic-drivered iems, even the ie8. So Is the EM good enough to stand toe to toe with five,six drivered monitors?
I like pop, guitar solos, operas, very light rock, so which one would do better in those aspects.
