Didn't find I got a good fit /seal with the Heaven stock tips... Think that's the most important thing in getting good sound out of an iem

I'm a tough fit, though

+1

 

For a more balanced sound the Havi B3 Pro's (original) are aslo a great choice at the same price.

Zero Audio carbon Singulos have amazing sound and soundstage and great fit.

DOPPIOS are reference class and now close to 150 plus shipping through japanese forwarding service and amazon.jp.

Narmoos show promise, adjustable bass  intense sound...

Tip bore acoustics apparently can wreak havoc with the upper treble response on the Heaven V, so maybe try to keep a similar bore size to the stock wider bore tips. A smaller bore can drop the FR off a cliff after 10k and increase peakiness.

Hmmmm, didn't notice any peakiness, listened through X3/ALO National, enjoyed listening to hi-rez jazz, Joel Frahm, fine saxophonist. Eric, you have the Heaven V, do you use stock tips or the 900 tips? If you use the 900 tips, did you find highs peaky?

I'd say best under $100 is Zero Audio Tenore.  Pistons v2.1 are another option.

Anyone ever had a missed delivery at tenso from amazon.jp. best I can tell the tracking said delivery was missed and rescheduled? Hopefully it updates later today

Like the Tenores, have a pair (on long term loan to my younger daughter, who loves them). I find that they "blanch" tone color a bit (DS noted this as well, though it seemed to bother him less than it did me). They do have this great, expansive soundstage, though, good buy at the price.

Hello doctorjazz. Yes, I did use the largest size UE900 tips, which gave me a great seal and deep fit. It also increased the bass some. But I have now switched back to the large wide-bore stock tips.Do to suction, the UE900 would off the nozzle and stay in my ears, causing me to have to fish them out. Never happens with the stock tips. There's a little less bass, but it's still great sounding to my ears.

Well, got home and compared the bore size of the tips, know what? The stock tips and the UE tips seem to have about the same size openings. No major differences there, so if that is a big determinant of the sound, should be similar.

Check again. V has two type of stock tips shaped differently. One with a wide nozzle, and one with a narrow nozzl like the Sony hybrids.
