Hello, long time lurker, first time poster.
I'm looking for a better replacement for my current flimsy Sleek Audio SA6, but this time I don't want to break the bank.
I really like their sound signature (which is quite balanced yet musical), but would prefer something with a bit stronger bass and especially better extension both ways.
I pretty much liked Senn IE7 after cutting midbass with EQ, though the detail clearly was inferior to SA6.
Edit: I use IEMs with a custom passive crossfeed circuit, Bauer style but stronger and higher cutoff frequency.
I'd especially like to hear any comparisons to SA6 (b+ t=). I specifically value info about build quality here, these are supposed to be
used in day-to-day scenario.
My current picks based on the large thread would be, in no particular order:
Phiaton PS 20 (not sure it will fit)
Klipsh S4 (likely too heavy in bass and sibilance)
I haven't listened to any of those rare and hard to get IEMs and I've never bothered to check Klipsch S4.
I've already read the great comparison thread and I've a few suggestions myself, I'd appreciate comments and info on shops where some of the more rare models can be found shipping from Europe. Shipping from US is too expensive.
Extra credit if you can find a seller in Poland.
