Well it is hard to driver with lower-end sources, DAPs, and portable amps, so that makes portability a problem.

I am currently using UM Miracle and previously Westone ES5. I love Miracle's balanced sound signature. Its forte is clarity, sound stage and treble performance. Miracle will be more suitable if you have a lot of Jazz or audiphile music.
JH16 is more bassy and fun sounding. If you listen to a lot of Pop, Rock or Metal, JH16 will defintely provide you with more value with its quick PRAT.
There's really no one do-it-all customs I am afraid.
The problem is I'm looking for something that is as technical as the Miracle but the musically fun like the JH16 Pros. :( Other than the Personal Reference Monitor by UE, I wish there was a do-it-all custom.
After some more research, I decided the Miracle wasn't for me and that it might be too boring and neutral (After all I am coming from the IE8s :P). I contacted Rooth, who said they were able to build a LS8 and ship it to the US.
In that case its now between the LS8 and the JH16 Pro Freqphase.
