Btw, including 1964 Ears' and Noble's offerings, that's quite a huge list of CIEMs you have on your plate. Maybe you can tell us what kind of sound you are looking for, and what kind of music you prefer, and we can help to trim the list for you?
Well I'm a greedy person ain't I :)
Hmmm, my dictionary of terms is really limited.
I'm looking for something to complement my 846s. Sound signature should be neutral/natural? Not too warm, with good soundstaging. Bass quality should be on par with the 846s, with a little more punch (quantity - juat alittle more)? Mids should be neutral/forward and not too recessed (will seem too veiled to me) while the highs should be airy with a little bit of sparkle, but not too much till its fatigue inducing!
I guess thats the result of spending more time reading headfi/hwz instead of trying them out myself? My focus will still be 1964 and noble for now, and will most probably include the LSX and roxanne (customs).
Not really going to include the UM series (didn't really liked them the last time i tried afew months back - can't remember why though, since I didn't take notes) nor the Hiditions (not enough bass). However I may try these brands more often, seeing that I pass by Plaza Sing (Stereo) and Clarke quay (null audio) often! Its the JH, 1964 and Noble where I have to find time out to demo. :)
