I'm wondering if anyone does etymotic's super clear, detailed, sound better than etymotic. The instrument separation is uncanny, and it really gives me this sense that these instruments are spatially arranged around me and just creating this amazing sound experience. I have sounds whizzing around me back and forth. Different sounds have different depths, some resonating through this huge environment, while some are just light, distinctly at a pinpointed location. I'm no longer just listening to a melody anymore, but rather it's an entire experience.
I have the Beyerdynamic DT770, Sony MDR-V6, and I formerly owned the Shure SE530. The former two doesn't even come close to giving me this effect, although the Shure does. However, it feels very blunted in its details, which is more musical for certain tunes, but it feels more like a detriment overall.
I've listened to my friend's RE0. They sound very similar to etymotics, although it's not nearly as punchy, and the bass is quite a bit thinner than etymotics. The fit isn't nearly as comfy either.
I like listening to psychedelic trance, which is probably why I feel extra drawn to ety's sublime details and separation.
Ety's have really opened up a totally new way of listening to music for me. Is there still a way for me to further my experience to another level?
