As I keep saying, there seems to be a lot of folks who really enjoy that forward presentation which is typical of most IEMs (music is in your head instead of presented in front of you).
Grado has the same effect. Many people identify a very wide presentation with a certain veiled feel because of it. Give someone a Sennheiser can who listens to Grado all day long - the comments would be identical.
The spacious soundstage of the Roxanne is directly tied to the number of cross overs and how they are implemented. They are the ONLY IEM (custom or otherwise) I have heard thus far that sound like a full size can in this regard.
I agree, no other iem and ciem I know has the Soundstage as big as Roxanne
How about compares to the Tralucent 1plus2, which is supposed to have a huge soundstage?
