Anyway where are you from? I'm pretty sure there are stores in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia that allow people to audition their products.

Do you by any chance have a Jaben store around in your country?

I do live in Singapore.  We have a Stereo, Jaben (apparently the branch here is NOT so well reputed) and a Challenger (worst of the three).  Stereo is quite far from my home, and making a trip over without getting a good idea of getting into is not a good idea in my opinion.  The real question is: why then is W10 299 dollars while UM Pro 10 only 219.  This price difference is SERIOUS to say the least, and very strange considering the MSRP's recommended are the same.

Never had any experience with Jaben but I've been to Stereo on multiple occasions. Their service are top notch but I do agree that the prices are kind of steep.

Since you already have 4 IEMs in mind, why not just make a trip down to Stereo and give them all a go? I believe the staff there will be able to guide you better than I can since I have no idea what you listen to. Challenger is the last place you'd want to go honestly.

Give the ATH IM70 a go too, they go for about 120SGD.


There's one big caveat though, trust your own ears, for one man's trash is another man's treasure.

Oh, and there are actually plenty of shops dedicated to audiophiles, AVone and Jaben in the Adelphi, E1 in the Orchard area and Music Sanctuary. No idea where is Music Sanctuary though, but a quick Google search should yield some information.
