Love the shell color of the 1Plus2, congrats on the new toy.
You think if HifiMan releases a new flagship they'll faze out the old HE-6 completely or do a Sennheiser and keep it in the lineup?
As for the vote, I vote Cardas
I picked the JH16 because I have a theory that deep down you're a closet bass head so I say get the JH16 and enjoy some bass in ya face.
As for what made me pick the customs I did, I first pulled the trigger on the 4A because Heir had a 40% off sale last black Friday. Also, I really liked the wood aesthetics Heir offered and liked the idea of supporting a fellow head-fier who originally got started making customs as a hobby. The UERM I've always been curious about and wanted. Everything I read about them the reviewers always conveyed the same final impression, neutral and transparent, As much as I like to play around with colored sigs I really wanted a piece of gear that was neutral and transparent. The 4A is a very good sounding CIEM but it's not as capable as the UERM, IMO. The next step, get myself a kickass sounding basshead CIEM and call it a decade as far as CIEM's are concerned. As an aside, I also toyed around with the idea of getting the JH13 but for whatever reason the UERM won out.
General musing for the thread.
Maybe I've just grown up, as far as the hobby is concerned, but the deeper I get involved in this hobby the more I find my tastes have changed. I used to love experimenting with cans that had colored sigs but as time goes on i'm more and more drawn to a neutral sound. It's gotten to the point that very little out there holds much interest for me anymore. There are exceptions to the rule in that i'm still intrigued by the Fostex and FitEar gear, but, for whatever reason I find myself wishing an endgame neutral flagship would come along soon. Anyone think the rumors that AKG may put out a successor to the K1000 is true? I'd love to see AKG come out of nowhere and completely shock everyone with something sounding killer.
