i own(ed) a couple of top tier universals so far, but none of them seems to fit my needs.
sm3: muffled lower mids combined with a soundstage that does not expand to the sides, but to the back. Bass OK, Treble OK
tf10: nice soundstage, nice bass, bad mids, too much and too pronounced itchy highs
se530: nice soundstage, best mids (a little too forward), nice highs, lacking deepbass
ie8: best soundstage, best bass (sometimes a little to much), mids ok, highs ok. so here i found the signature i like best, but i miss the details and precision in presentation, that i know from the others.
is there any ie, that will combine both? i could accept a little weaker bass and soundstage.
what should i go for?
