Please find out exactly what kind of sound quality and signature you actually prefer that would compliment what you listen to instead of looking out for what you perceive as being the possible "best". Sorry to burst your self-imposed bubble but there is no such thing. Find out what you like, look for iems known to possess those qualities then for god's sake, TRY when you get to Japan.
You just seem like a lost sheep not knowing what he even wants that finds excuses for everything. Sorry if I'm being harsh.
I understand where you're coming from, but as of now all I can do is merely speculate as the country I am situated in is useless for this purpose. I am not waiting until they are fully developed as that is not possible I understand as they are all different for different purposes, however since they are in their early stages, therefore although there is no 'best,' better does exist and obviously I will be waiting forever if I keep anticipating better alternatives however, what I'm saying is I won't be jumping on the bandwagon just yet before weighing out all the options. I would rather see what companies have to offer in the future, which may not even be from a sound perspective. For instance FitEar are revising their connectors in the near future, if say I had bought a FitEar product (IEM) prior to this then I would have some buyers remorse and in this instance it is a case of being better and not just different as apparently the new revision will strengthen the connectors to make them more durable, thus an improvement in this area, where as sound wise, may not hold the same aspect.
I do not believe I am lost, I am just asking about so that I can get a general synopsis of what is available.
