i own the RE-400, too.

(i think Eric would agree on this.) the Audiofly and Hifiman are not comparable at all in sound sign. totally different beasts. Bass VS Neutral (slightly mid-centred). i wont say too much yet, as i just got these, and my re400 are already 1.5 month old, but i find the AF45 to be a great 'FUN' bassy all-arounder 

Totally agree!

Most expensive does not equal flagship.  It doesn't say the KAEDE is the flagship anywhere, the KURO has the flagship technology in it.

Just in case anyone was interested, those fake Sony EX700's on ebay are HORRIBLE sounding, the worst IEM's I've ever heard in my life, and I bought four of them, not good.

 

It sounds like they were soaked in dishwater for 10 hours prior to shipping.

 

 

The Green House GH-ERC-DMS is still my recommendation for the highest score in the price versus sound index.

 

I don't listen to the CKS1000 very much since the bass smothers the other frequencies too much, even if it's one of the best dynamic drivers around.

 

The new rectangular JVC's look nice!

Also, you can get the UE500 tips without the earphones:

 little expensive, though.

Ok. Thanks guys for the leads and thoughts. Still haven't got around trying the hybrid tip but will do so. The UE500 looks tempting with the discounted price but wonder do I need them. Shall try the hybrid first and see how it goes.

The hybrids sound nice too. I am just overly picky that is all..I am getting better at matching the type of tips needed for certain sounding iems..

I'd try the UE500 tips too if I could. Unfortunately, only UE tips I have are the ones that come with the TF10.

I also have the TF10 grey silicon tips but have not tried it yet. Will post back after I've done so.

Good to have people like you and others doing things like this for the benefit other members. It is a good resource pit stop for ideas. Cheers.

There. Fixed. wink.gif

This thread made me buy 3 pairs of IEMs in under a week. That's a personal record!

Well, I've picked up 4 iems in the last 3 months or so after discovering this thread. Wallet isn't crying because those are all relatively affordable and perform above their asking price. In fact, I might say that it helps me to enjoy my music without having to spend high end prices. I could have gotten a flagship model but now, I've got 4 iems with different sound sig to play around with. Also, it will allow me to narrow down my absolute preference in regards to sound sig before plunging in for a flagship model. In the meantime, I've got a lot to keep me occupied. Cheers.

I can't believe what I'm hearing right now! I didn't expect that I've been missing out on QUALITY audio by choosing to start with a basic amp like the E11. The C5 is just miles away in terms of clarity and detail. The MIDS! OMG this is a revelation for me. Now I understand why headfiers invest on such high quality gear. I'll post my detailed impressions as soon as I've listened to my test tracks. Currently testing with Mariah Carey catalogue in ALAC format.

Same here. If I'd topped up a little from my 3 purchases, I'd have been able to afford an ASG-2. But these are well worth my time. I'll be getting a flagship somewhere in the future but right now, testing these out is fun in it's own way.
