Here is my evaluaton based on my Main rig (see signature)
Unique Melody Mages, Quad BA drivers custom IEMs.
11/11, Almost can count the beats of the double bass. Clear and good instrumental separation. Good crash cymbal impact.
5/5. Quite good in imaging... can imagine the crowds cheering and shouting.
Westone UM3Xs, Triple BA drivers unversal IEMs
9/11 : Very good for drums and bass guitar...but lead guitar not as clear as the Mages. Quite relaxing.
If you have good source/remix, you still can get good quality in lossy formats.
Note: My iBasso D10's setup, has warm sound signature.
