Sony EX1000 :-) a dream of a Inear, best overall performance, getting better and better the longer you hear it. ( ... if wind effect not matters).

So the 100s are the more neutral of the two...if they are a bit warmer than the GR07s, then these would suit me just fine.

If you like bassy IEM, Phonak PFE232 and Earsonics SM3v2 and both excellent choice; However they're more Alfa Romeo than Ferrari.

 

When I mull about Ferrari, I somehow think of FitEar TG334 or Tralucent 1plus2. They're semi-custom with many hand-made components like a Ferrari.

 

You should also consider Etymotic ER-4P : The VW Golf of IEMs--Understated, long-running excellence.

When I think "Ferrari," I picture the AKG K3003. But obviously it's outside the budget. 

 

Next choice would be the W4R. Maybe not a "Ferrari," but it's at least a Chevy Corvette. :)

The thing is, AKG reminds me more of Mercedes with their design schemes, especially with the K3k3.  The color scheme, design and everything really reminds me of Mercedes :p

Truer words have never been spoken.  That is definitely true, the Ferrari of IEMs should be hand built, with passion, and beauty in mind; an icon at the end of the day.  Heir does fit those qualities for sure.

We only trash BOSE to a certain extent and Beats by Dre. :p

 

 

So you are set on IEM? Or "normal sized" headphones are an option?

 

 

Ferrari IEMs: Red, expensive and must be finicky about the driver (get it? hahaha)
