I love this thread because I'm experiencing the exact same thing as you!

 

Currently have a universal pair of TF10s and I absolutely love them.

 

Looking into reshelling them into TF10 x 6 and also interested in the miracle, jh16 and heir audio 8.a.

 

Wish you all the best!

I am torn between the JH16 and Merlin. From what a lot of people have been telling me the 8.A is a little too warm for my preferences. I have been sick for a while or else I would have ordered the Merlin already. That and I can't decide on a design.

Good luck with it!

ur not going wrong with either, they r both great iems .. the merlins are ie80s on steroids, so if u like that sort of soundsig u will love them / jh16 too really good. any reason for leaving out jh13's ?.. they came out top on the innerfidelity 23 ciem reviews :)

I read that and saw the new JH13 was one of the best. The only thing is, it might be a little too flat for me. I want that bass impact. My music listening is so evenly split between electronic (Trance etc) which is bass heavy and a lot of Alt Rock and indie that is a little vocal heavy. Trying to find a happy medium that would work for both.

So to answer your question: it's the bass haha

You should probably still get a Heir 8.A. I think that they will be your best bet. Just save up until you have $1300.

And there have been some 8As floating around used for $800.

I saw one not by toxicdrift. But I guess it's gone too.

Honestly though, bass heavy IEMs cause quite a bit of listening fatigue for me. The Sennheiser IE8 that I had a while back sounded terrible and after more than an hour I would start getting a headache.

What would you consider TF10s? Bass heavy? I really like those.

How is JH build quality vs UM?

The IE8s had a lot of bass quantity, they had more midbass than my JH16...I hate midbass btw.

How are the JH16s in terms of mid-bass? If I am understanding mid-bass right, I might not like a lot of it either, specially if it bleeds onto other frequencies.
