The EX1000, IMO has much better timbre, mids (more forward), bass quality (especially sub bass), wider and deeper sound stage, more realistic sounding instruments.

The TF10 has greater quantity mid bass, more dynamic (energy). The UE has a V shaped sound stage and the Sony is arguably mid forward and definitely a brighter phone. The EX1000 is more comfortable. I am sure I am missing some other positive attributes of the EX1000.

 

I prefer to listen to the EX1000 and to me, is the much better phone.

Kay thanks for the response. The EX1000 sounds pretty intriguing to me. Just wondering, how much less bass does the EX1000 have vs the TF10? also how much treble does the EX1000 have vs the TF10?

Really? I always found them "U" shaped and fun. Especially in comparison to the SE530/535 and ER-4P/S.

I agree with you guys. It can be fun for recorded music, but for live monitoring (maybe my drum mix was bad. I dunno. The same mix sounds alright on Atrios, which I used after I auditioned the W3s) it can be a tad bit fatiguing with bloated mid bass and sibilance. I like my drums mixed with warm cymbals and balanced resonance - not too dry and not too bloated.

 

EDIT: In addition, I've monitored this same mix with TF10s too. Cymbal articulation would definitely be pronounced (as you would expect from the TF), but definitely not sibilant. Basically, I've found it a joy to monitor with TF10s, because they are such an engaging monitor.

Very interesting opinions.
My question is which of these buds would anyone suggest for very powerful vocal centric metal?
These or any other suggestion in the same price range?
Id like my buds to sound good with most any music because I listen to almost anything that sounds good to me.
But the most important is a classically "operatic" trained Soprano with a thunderous powerful voice that belts power metal, opera, and growl.

It is an absolute pain finding good output and phones/speakers that do good with such voices that can exceed 90-100+ Decibels just by themselves.
