Nice review mate, your thoughts echoed many of ours. 1plus2 is an amazing IEM that's for sure.
Interesting also that at first listen.....I don't know if its we are expecting to be suddenly blown away or something ....But its only after we settle back & actually forget that we have this IEM, we get to be seduced by the the way it presents the music to us. After all its all about the music in the end.
1 plus2 then becomes like those Sirens .....luring you as they did poor Ulysses, how his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing......lol.
I like Ulysses am also tied.......me by my wallet......or else im jumping ship & getting 1plus2 soon as possible.....
Sell some other gear to protect your wallet :). You'd probably be able to sell off the miracles and merlin and have enough if not more :P.
