I understand that people are often considering IEMs within the same price range, so I don't discount the value of competitor shoot-outs. The problem is that you can sometimes end up comparing differences that are so small that they end up appearing more significant to the reader than they are in real life.
i agree with you but i believe that comparables must be comparable.
if you ask me to choose between H200 and 1Plus2 guess what would be my choice? H200 is not even close to 1Plus2 in sonic excellence...
but considering price restraint i find H200 to be amazing value and actually this IEM also has a very nice element of fun sound.
same applies to C3 and RWAK.
i also seen many people in forums being pissed when someone logs in and begins to pontificate how a 100$ DAP beats Ibasso DX100, i think you can find enough such posts. so happens not everyone agrees to such comparisons.
now for the sake of fun lets take cars, you have to compare the same way between BMW7 and MiniCooper S? which one is better?
you welcome to do it like you would do for H200 and 1Plus2
and by the way price difference between MiniC S and BMW7 will be less than between H200 and 1Plus2
yes, for me both are excellent IEMs for their price, however there is no comparison if you ask me to choose only one.
seriously comparing H200 to 1Plus2 the issue i would concentrate is which sonic virtues on H200 make it stand out to make it comparable to excellent but expensive IEM, not necessarily has to be 1Plus2. this is quite easy logic for me.
