So do you buy a CIEM base on its sound signature and your preference or just the price?
I also went with Heir 4.a in part due to the price reduction. I would have gotten 1964 V3 (or possible a universal like 232, ue900, 4.ai) if that sale did not come up.
From what I read, the Heir 4.a was a closer match to my desired sound signature than the 1964 V3, However at the 4.a's original price of several hundred more than I was comfortable spending, I would not have gotten them.
I'm sure I would have been happy with the V3's even though the signature may not have been perfect for me. And they are priced great, especially for a hand-made-in-USA product. I am in the U.S., and like the idea of getting a made-in-USA item. So it was a tough call, and I'm not sure I made the right decision!
