I followed your advice and went for the Headstage Arrow 4G to accompany a RWA iMod (with a SSD disk and an ALO LOD). Everything is under way and should arrive in a week or two, unless customs decides to give me a hard time.
Although I still love the sound of the UE 18 Pro, I am, however, ready to embark on a new set of CIEMs in order to ensure I have found the best possible compromise soundwise for my ears and taste. So what is a guy to do now?
I'm mostly listening to hip hop, r&b, some pop and rock, as well as more progressive metal (like Linkin Park). Using Apple lossless format. Like open airy sound with clarity, separation and punch but need to be holistic. Dont play to loud and in general like low volume to be able to listen to details and lyrics.
I have read a couple of the 8.a reviews and like what I "see". Is this a good choice given my taste in music (see below)? If so, should a go with the musician fit or ordinary fit? Or is there any other CIEMs you would recommend given taste and preferences? No stores up here at the Arctic Circle, so need to base my choice upon recommendations.
And while at it, I was thinking of ordering the Silver Poison from Toxic Cables. Is that a good match or is there some other cable you would choose to accompany the CIEM recommendation?
Again thank you for helping a noob out!
