i use my d2000 for home listening and planning to get CIEM as soon as its financially viable,
the thing is im currently caught in the middle and would like your opinions on what would be the definitive universal to get before going the CIEM route.
the use of the universal im aiming for is for my daily commute, cycling, sharing it with
somebody else <3 haha(plus i could welcome them into the world of head-fi so to speak
and dont worry about hygiene cause i could swap tips anyways), so going directly into customs wont do. the thing is,
my full size is something i could upgrade on, as is my soon to be CIEM whatever it would be.
so to be specific, i am looking for a be all end all universal that would fit my needs and wouldn't cost as much as coming close to CIEM territory
my initial candidate is the re262 w/c is about 150$ right now at amazon but i'm thinking of getting the re272 instead for a 100$ more.
would it be reasonable to spend 250$ knowing that ill be getting a custom sometime as well. i know its a fine line and id just
want to get your opinions, or maybe you could suggest another universal.
oops i almost forgot about my sonic preference, having the d2000, maybe a palette refreshing sound would be nice but it really doesnt matter
as long as i am getting the most bang for my buck sonically speaking.
i hope someone could shed some light on this and help me decide, on the other hand,
hearing your head-fi journey would also be a great help not only for me, but also for those newbies out here like me, who is just starting out
on a journey of their own. :)
