He is selling the inferior ones. That's his secret :happy_face1:  I also think NT6 will deserve to stay.

I think one must keep in mind innovations are not necessarily better. The Spiral Ear is not new at all but is still among the top for me, and I am not sure these new 25 driver customs will surpass it.

A good point, there are also the limitation's of an individual's ears.  At a certain point we'd just here differences and not improvements.

Differences, Improvements, to each his own....To some it could be either, like you said individuals ears.....

But clearly there are a few very well regarded designs out there.

I am surprised how quickly we have come to these levels in just a relatively short time span. Can it get even better?

It is possible but diminishing returns are rather high at this stage in the game and with the IEMs I have now I just don't see it to be worth spending more money at this point in time. I just simply don't have that desire like I use to. Thank goodness ;).

Sending photos of some impressions to SE tomorrow, with the hope that I'll be able to get my hands (or ears) on a pair of the ref. 5.

If it turns out that my ears are too small, which would be the next IEMs to go for?

EarSonics EM6 seems to be similar with SE5way, tupac told me that EM6 is like SE5way on steroids. That's my input but I am sure other users would also suggest other c/iems. Let's hope that your ears are just fine and you get your dream model. I've been there, done that, now I can't be happier I guess.

Damn it! The thought of an SE5 on steroids has now got me wondering about which to get.

EM6 or SE5?

SE5way on steroids doesn't mean it is better. Apparently there is no other ciem can match against SE5way's micro details and transparency.

 

My suggestion is, if your ears are fine, get SE5way, you won't regret it.

Even though you sent him photos there is no guarantee he can still make them or not make them. Even from the pics I sent him he was unsure. It was not until I send him the actual molds themselves that he was able to determine that he could make them.

 

Good luck.
