Which of the top IEMS feel like my ...

RE0s in terms of comfort and feel in the ear?

 

I only use two different IEMs, the RE0 and the TripleFi 10s, but would now like to upgrade to something that sounds better than the TripleFi, and more importantly, feels like if not better than the RE0 while in the ear.

 

I like the TripleFi 10s sound very much but absolutely hate how large and bulky they are in my ear.  Thus I'd like to find an IEM, preferably something from Westone or Shure, thats as comfortable as the RE0 but with much, much better sound; which these options from Westone and Shure should provide.

 

I'm gonna make use of earphonesolutions current sale so I'd like to stay below $400 after the 20%discount, but would prefer something closer to $300.

 

Lastly, one other thing that I find very important is a good, manageable cable.  Something closer to the RE0s feel than the TripleFi 10.

 

Thanks

The GR07, Sony EX1000, Sennheiser IE80, Sony XBA4, Westone 3, Klipsch Image X10, Image X5 are close to the TF10Pro prsentation but few has different soundsignature like X10 is warm sounding. BTW to me Image X5 are very close to TF10Pro with little less bass punch and little less wider soundstage.

Do you like the RE0 sound signature? Because the 272 maintains it, but is technically even better.

 

The FX700 might be worth looking into if you like the V-shaped FR. A more balanced IEM would be the EX1000. Does isolation matter to you?

Isolation doesnt matter at all, and no, I dont like the RE0 signature nearly as much as the TF10.  RE0 sounds very weak and neutral compared to the TF10.

 

I'm basically just looking for something at or above the TF10 in sound, but very much like the RE0 in comfort.
