I just got my Comply TX-400's in today and I find they seem to add fullness to the sound, I also find I get a better seal with them.  The Ditas with my DX90/Pure ii is actually my favourite setup out of all my IEMs:dt880smile:

 

Actually I think the Answer is probably better with the DX90... as the DX90 is quite detailed and etched sounding, so if paired with the overly biting treble of the Truth it probably wouldn't make for a great match. The Answer has more body and weight in the mids and vocals, so it does great with the DX90. I bet the Pure II will be awesome with it too, I'd love to hear that amp.

Rudi, don't feed it in with to much juice. It'll get distortion. Something like the AKs are fine but not the HM-901.

I got an early version of the Iona and wrote a review for it here :-

It's not a bad amp. But I'm probably too used to higher ended amps. I needed to reboot my brain to review this one. I can see how it'll have a decent pairing with the Roxannes though. To me (and I know many disagree with me about this but), I do find the Roxannes a little dark so I can imagine this amp to me helps balance that out although I've not tried that combination myself.

Nice and simple.......I'm in the process of getting rid of my amp and DAC as I'm sick of carting them around.....decided to go back to a simple DAP and IEM solution, when I can decided on what DAP to try next :-)

I used to own the T70p and used them with both my iPad4 and iPhone5 with no amp or DAC. I found them to be extremely neutral with a spacious sound and also as comfortable as hell for extended listening periods. You don't see that many of them around on here, which is a shame as I personally think they are extremely underrated.

I got mine rewired by Matthew at Forza AudioWorks who added double entry female Mini XLR sockets and I then used a FAW cable with them, I found this made a distinct improvement to them and for what he charged was a bargain!!! Also gave me the benefit of being able to swap the cables between single ended and balanced :-)

Thanks mate.
Yes they really are how you describe them.
Funnily enough I'm thinking of having the same done but with a female hirose termination.
Mainly due to everything I currently own being that type of connection.
