Well, TL:DR, out of these iem, which of them sounds similar or better than Xba 1? I'll rebuy Xba 1 if none of them are close to it...
I spent a few hours reading review and I get this list, from what I can get from my country, well it's Jaben actually. International online ordering seems to be not my stuff after all, figures.
Here goes the list
-Fisher Audio Tandem
-Hippo Pro One
-Phonak Audeo PFE 012
-Shure SE 215
My genre is pretty much all about classical, instrumental, chanting (or operatic), a little bit of pop and electronic (when I'm sleepy or like to cheer myself up), something dark but not bright.
My priority will be
-Separation of instrument + soundstage
-Accuracy and clarity of instrument
-Cold or neutral vocal
-Good isolation (Optional, Xba 1's seems to work great with me)
-A little more bass and sub-bass compared with Xba 1 will be nice.
Got to start from the scratch again...
