I've been using the Sleek Audio SA6 for around three years now. I've always loved this earphone but in that time I think i've replaced the cables around 8 times (constant cracking and snapping)!! I also think that the earphone could be a lot better for my tastes if there was more pronounced bass (not muddy or boomy bass but more definition if that makes sense?).
I'm not expert on IEM's and have little experience. I did a fair bit of research when purchasing the SA6 and decided upon them due to the interchangeable ports and cables (this is now not a priority).
I've been looking at the Sennheiser IE8 and the Audio Technica CK10 (i know these have vastly different sound signatures). My price range is around the £200 mark (£250 if there is something that would be a significant improvement).
Please could you offer your recommendations?
N.B. I mostly listend to DnB, Breaks, Hip Hop but also funk, soul, acoustic etc... so I think something balanced and defined would be better than something bass heavy. Please note that I am happy with the signature of the SA6 i would just prefer more bass definition and better soundstage/instrument seperation. What would be the best step up?
Hope you can help!
