You may have seen my thread asking about the IEMs with the most bass. To summarize that briefly I wasn't happy with my TF10's bass. If I hook it into an amped audio source it's fine, but it's very lacking on my iPhone. (i know it's an iPhone which is garbage)... however I purchased 5eb, but not happy with the overall quality of the sound. Bass bleeds, too much mid bass, no mids, highs too sharp.
About to pull the trigger on some IE80s, i run across a thread linking me to Unique Melody. The UM Merlins look promising, as do the Miracles.
Called an audiologist nearby they said it's $60 for impressions. Not too bad.
I've never owned, or seen Custom IEMs in real life, very few pictures of Custom IEMs have tips on them.
My first question is: Do Custom IEMs use tips? I would think noise isolation, and seal won't quite be as good with out some sort of tip (i'm a big fan of comply foam tips).
My second question: Do you think the Miracles have more sub bass than the TF10? (actual owners please)
