Would the Westone ES5 / ES50 be a good middle ground between the two IEMs that are subject of this thread?  From what I've heard, a bit more of a relaxed presentation than the JH13, while at the same time, a bit more comfortable.

I would like to think that the SE846 is bringing anything to the masses but at $1k that's unrealistic. The only thing being brought to the masses is bloated fart-can bass that seems to be so popular in Beats and other designer headphones that are so popular nowadays. Everywhere I look people are wearing them, and to think they could buy a quality pair of headphones for what they pay for the Beats.

I was considering the Fitear ToGo334's, but decided not to bother because I've had enough of universals.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on what you felt would be the best thing to do.

I'm soooo disappointed, hahaha.  When I read what you were originally ordering, I couldn't wait to hear how it turned out.  I imagine you wound up making the wiser choice here, but I was just so excited!  It was like watching a stuntman (no! a daredevil!) attempt a harrowing trick for the first time!  What would happen?!  

 

But yes, probably a good choice to step back from the fiery pit of robotic shark-lions that you were about to try to jump over...

 

I hope you get many years of enjoyment out of your purchase.

I always go into these "vs" threads expecting a comparison ,but I just leave disapointed.

Yeah, it could maybe use a question mark in the title.

I'm actually glad I didn't have my 535's done, because while I'm very happy with the comfort and SQ of my UM Miracle, I don't like it's cable. IMO it looks and feels flimsy and that would've been the same cable used on my 535's.
I think what I'll do with my 535's, is just have custom sleeves done because after all it was only the comfort that was an issue with me.

I think you probably made the right choice.

 

Have you seen videos on youtube where people are making their own custom tips from mold-able plastic?  It looks fairly easy and it's cheap.  How it turns out, I don't know...

I'd sooner use the same audiologist that did the moulds of my ears for the UM Miracles.
The comfort and seal is spot on.

Maybe I'll be the test subject...

I'd love to test either IEM's.
