Frogbeats just posted several new Custom IEM related things on their Facebook page including a group buy, check them out.
after read your reviews, I'm interested in both SA-43 and SE-5way. I like it when you mention about the 3D sound stage on both of these. Could you explain more on this for both pair. I had a home sound system that I setup long time ago in my home country with all surrond speakers and multi channel amp. I modified it for music listening and really fall in love with it. I mostly listen to live concert album. I'd like to have a ciem that can give the similar sound quality and ambience. I hope you can suggest some ciem that will give me the sound and ambience similar to live concert listening.
The SA-43 is the most laid back and spacious CIEM I own while the 5-way is very true to the recording, but doesn't have quite the space. The strength of the SA-43 is that while it has a large space, it fills that space in a very convincing way with exceptional layering, black space, instrument placement, and instrument separation. The 5-way is also very good and even better at these things with more resolution, but it doesn't have quite the size/space as the SA-43 and sounds more up close and personal. It can sound large however depending on the recording, but still ultimately is smaller than the SA-43. I would say the SA-43 gives more of a 'you are there in the audience' feel, but be prepared for a laid back presentation (even with the presence switch on).
