On a purely technical scale, the IM70 pulls ahead. But if ethereal, beautiful vocals and mids are your thing then go Heaven IV. Honestly you can't go wrong with either.

Thanks. I actually already have the IM70 but seen the Heaven IV at quite a low price on Amazon UK and wondered what it was like in comparison. I'll just stick with my IM70.

I'd suggest the Heaven V if you have the chance to try them. There's just something special about that has to be heard to be believed. It's a love/hate kinda thing.

I was totally thinking of the V! My bad! I'm tempted to just purchase it, but its a little pricey! I wish I could hear it somewhere first...

A wise man once told me "purchase what you want instead of a stepping stone." If you want the Heaven V then I would say just purchase them. There is no need to play around with the IM70.

I was told that too, so I try not to settle while staying within my means.

Agreed. Although for me it's pretty much an all love kinda thing haha.

 

I've heard my friend's IM70 and tbh, the Heaven V is superior in every way. The IM70 had more bass quantity but it sounded bloated and loose compared to the Heaven V's bass.

But that's it. I don't feel like I have any emotional connection with my music. The Heaven V draws me in every time, and still does after 8 months of owning it. The music sounds more real and present, whereas the TE-05 sounds a bit too thin for my tastes. And although the TE-05 has decent imaging, I would say the Heaven V's imaging and layering of instruments is definitely superior. Soundstage is comparable in size. I think the TE-05 may be slightly taller in soundstage while the Heaven V is slightly wider and deeper. And mids on TE-05 sound nowhere as beautiful as on the Heaven V. They're still very technically great mids, but it lacks that magical quality the Heaven V's mids have. No other headphone or IEM allows me to lose myself in my music like the Heaven V does. Not even FAD's own full-sized Pandora Hope VI could match the Heaven V in this regard, despite coming close. Even after reading about all the amazing things said about the H3 and FX850, the only IEM that I still crave to get a chance to listen to is the Heaven VI.

Well, I own and love the V, but I think The TE-05 (with extensive burn-in) is about equal in performance with the FAD, just different flavors. Each does something better than the other. In the V, it's the magical mids. In the TE-05, it's the bass. I hear them equally. And with only a brief listen, I put the Pandora above the V (by the way, I find the VI quite comfortable as expected. I just need to fix the slide before it become an issue).

Yeah I agree that it comes down to personal taste. As a mids lover, I feel like the Heaven V is definitely superior to the TE-05. I also like Heaven V's bass more, for some reason it just sounds more organic to my ears. I think overall the HV just has a more lifelike sound, the TE-05 sounded too thin for my tastes.

 

Overall I agree that the PHVI is better than the Heaven V. I just prefer the HV's mids slightly more than the PHVI mids. I also like the sparkle of the HV in its treble a bit more. The PHVI is more smooth, so again it comes down to personal taste. I really miss my PHVI though, that was one special headphone.

I was going to ride the V-Moda XS or Don Dolphin hype train, but someone just sold me a pair of Monster DNA Pro's like new for only $77 usd. So looks like I'm about to ride the DNA Pro hype train instead. Let's see if it leaves the station.
