Lately there has been a lot of hype surrounding recent and upcoming hybrid IEMs, that is, IEMs with both dynamic and balanced armature drivers. Some say that this mix of both technologies can result in the ultimate hi-fi experience with a perfect balance between deep dynamic bass and timbre, and shimmering treble and resolution.
The biggest splash into this curious new realm is the recent uber-expensive AKG K3003, but there have apparently been quite a few others already released, with more looming large on the horizon (ahem GR08... ASG-2).
Until now, information on these hybrids has been scattered throughout head-fi, but no longer! Here in this thread I will attempt to keep consolidated a list of current hybrids and links to info/reviews about them. Feel free to add to this list:
