oh, head-fi you continue to hurt my wallet....
So within the last 2 months I've started working on my portable gear.
I've bought a nano 6th gen which lead to TF10's which lead to a Cowon J3 which lead to a UM3X
Currently I've been left wondering what the upgrade path from the UM3X would be.
I don't think Universals are going to do it for me anymore.
I've given some thought to re-shelling the TF10 and UM3X through Fisher or other re-shelling services.
However, I have read that unless there's a fit issue (there is not) that SQ improvement is a hit or miss.
Does anyone have any re-shelling experience particularly SQ wise?
Also would my next step be customs? Are they that much of an improvement considering the price?
I do like the sound signature of the UM3X with the treble (11 to 13 kHz and up EQ'ed up).
I also would like more bass presence so I figured something like the JH-16, 1964-Q, or UM Merlin would be my kind of customs.
(If too much bass I can always EQ down) are there any more that would fit me?
