There is no such thing as 'the best ever made', not even at $2500. It all depends on what your qualifications are in what you're looking for.

 

Etymotic ER4 are easily one of the best IEMs ever made for a flat, reference-quality sound signature and are only $200 or so.

What music do you like? That makes all the difference.

Hi,

thanks!! This was my first idea. I asked  my  friends  and one of them has exact this model so by chance this is one of the  3 models i have tested. ( the other 2 not more than 80€)  They sound is very good but i have the feeling that when you wear or carry them 1 hour or more  i feel "stress"  And as said i have the opportuniy to hear music working... Sorry!!  i´m not an expert but again thanks for your help.

i agree, that and the fact that once you get to a certain price point i feel like, no one iem is better than another, they are just different, then the problem comes into play of compare and contrast between the different universals. otherwise, i feel like best is whatever you can currently afford.

They say that all the piano forte models carry a similar sound. It's supposed to replicate old horn speakers. So if you like that kind of sound, you'll love it. But this series tends to have a love hate relationship. You either get emotionally attached or hate the sound. It's not really high fidelity based. It has a particular sound that is unique to the industry...although unique is not always a good thing.

asthetically speaking i find these iem's to be very underwhelming, i dont like the design of the housing and no removeable cable? build quality seems under designed and under produced, in my opinion. 

 

for the price they are you would expect that you would find, better build quality imo

 

ive personally never heard them. but i probably never will either price is impractical, for the price it lacks alot of what has become a industry standard on iem's a fraction of the price.

Just to chip in a little. I have actually tried the full range of Final Audio Piano Forte models and like what EveTan said they do have the same sound signature as they have the same internal construction and only the material used for the metal housing is different.

Personally I dont believe they are the best but that is just my opinion as they tend to be a little too bright for my taste. If you are considering the Piano Forte X do note that they are quite big and heavy so if you have small ears I would recommend you to stay away from them.

 

If you have a big enough wallet to afford them I would suggest looking towards other flagship universals (Senn IE800, Shure SE846, AKG K3003 etc.) or even consider customs (JH Audio, Westone, Heir, Unique Melody etc.).

My favourite for universals would be the IE800 while customs it would definitely be my Fitear C435.

 

Do take a look at the other earphones review threads to see what others think about all these earphones before making the jump!(:
