Hmm talking about legendary IEM falling on elusive forum members, I feel like I just like IEMs' way of presentation. I like the contrast some of the good ones gave me in terms of soundstage, or what I would prefer to call "headscape". That intimacy of vocals in contrast with instruments is just sublime, and it's something that I find lacking in the few headphones that I manage to try (and own).
Yeah, I agree. I don't know what it is, but I just prefer IEMs in general. Has a lot to do with the fact that I'm seldom home to justify the invest in a home rig too. I like to just keep it simple when it comes to a portable set up. No bricks, LODs, mini to mini etc. I carry around too much as it is.
