Hi all, what an awesome forum this is. So much knowledge around.
Anyway, I'm in the market for some custom iems and have been researching all over the Internet. My budget has rounded it down to Alien Ears and 1964 Ears. Being that I've never used custom iems before, I'm not sure whether I want triples or quads. I'll be using them for live monitoring, I'm a drummer in a band. I quite often lock in with the rhythm guitarist so I'm not after something that is all bass. Will quads really make a difference? I do listen to alot of music on my iPhone aswell and love quality sound (spent many years working in car audio building sq and spl systems).
So which brand is better? I have read alot about poor customer service at AE and being that I live in Australia, if I have an issue with fit or something, I need to be able to sort it ASAP as postage times and costs will slow the process down heaps. If the customer service at 1964 is only slightly better but their iems are alot worse sq then I'll still go alien but, ATM, I'm leaning toward 1964 and a 200 page appreciation thread is leaning me that way even more
I do apologise if this has already been addressed, I tried searching but found no exact answer.
