So, I would like to know any idea or any comment from anyone that have been try to compare both before.
Any comments are welcome.

I've never tried the Stage 2, but I've compared the Stage 3 with many others such as JH13, JH16, ACS, UM Miracle, FitEar Togo 334, and some other brands which I couldn't remember the brands. I absolutely love the Stage 3. It was my choice and I'm still extremely happy and amazed with its performance day by day. I didn't like the JH, they sounded rather harsh in someway to my preference. I absolutely love the Togo 334, but it was way too expensive for me. I love the UM Miracle too, but I trust the German's over Chinese :) (am a Chinese too, don't get me wrong). To what I learned in the web, Stage 2 is amazing with the vocal, but not as balanced to the Stage 3 as you have described. You have to judge it to yourself, but you have to allow huge provisions of the differences you heard from the demo universal fit against the final product. But I personal would tell you that with these many major brands of CIEM I've tested, I absolutely love and amazed by the Stage 3 day by day.
I really love its bass performance, never lacking, it is amazing low end extendsion, yet, solid and rounded mid bass which never overwhelm the vocal and high. I love the high too. Everything is just so well extended, so well balance in my ears with Stage 3. So hope my 2 cents opinion help. But these only apply to my own preference. It might be totally different from you :)
