LOL, audio is sort of personal.

 

I know many head-fi'ers like bass, but to me treble is the blood of music. It dictates the flow and energy of music. So personally any setup giving the dark and lifeless treble is an instant failure. I appreciate bass too, but bass comes secondary compared to treble as long as it doesn't sound boomy or hollow. I would rather let the recording prescribe the bass needed for my music than have unnecessarily boosted bass.

 

Besides treble, dynamics is important to my ears. By that I mean airy sounding with big sound stage. The sound stage can be cheated or misled by some combos with boosted bass. To me good sound stage should be complimented by effortless, transparent and airy sounding with adequate instrument spacing and extensions of both bass and treble.

 

IMO, if you have these sound qualities all you need to do is to sit back and enjoy music. I am purely an iem guy, I don’t feel my EX1000 lacking sound stage compared to my D2000, and its treble is definitely superior to the D2000’s (even with the improved treble after I diy recabled the D2000). While the D2000 has excellent bass known to head-fi’ers, but the EX1000’s bass is no slouch. 

 

One day ill own the ex1000 but for now ill enjoy my mdrxb90ex's. With the sony tips they are so lifeless and the sound stage is tiny. After I switched to the ts200's Ive been very pleased. Have you ever tried the comply ts200's tips on your set up?

yup i can live with either of them.. you may like glove more. imo glove sound more energetic and has more forward presentation. ak240 has better staging and has better micro details, bass also goes deeper in ak240. with glove everything sound more forward so you can hear instruments more clearly. It really comes to your music preferences.

No I never tried the comply tips. The Sony hybrid tips work great for my ears in terms of sound and comfy. But I agree with you the tips can make quite some difference in sound and the key is to find the right ones for each individual. 

 

I like tips with shallow & non-intrusive insertion without compromising sound of course. Since I use iems extensively for long hrs everyday, comfy is a must. With the almost weightless EX1000 housing and the hybrid tips, I have grown to feel nothing in my ears. I admire those whose ears can take abuse by (c)iems.
