Hi, I need some advice.
I have Soundmagic E10 & I'm quite happy with the sound for general music, except for orchestra & opera music (like Russell Watson, John Groban & others). I just feel the sound is too contained in my head, lacking spaciousness & airiness. Sometimes it also sounds too muffled & dark ???
I'm looking for another budget IEM with different character this time, something that provides wide soundstage & airiness, but without sounding too hollow & thin. I'd like to hear some punchy bass to make it sound more dynamic , but not necessarily thumping like E10.
So far, reading here & there a bit, it seems I have 3 candidates:
- MEElectronics M9 (worried some comments about being too boomy, which worries me about the lack of details & spaciousness)
- Soundmagic PL30 (my biggest concern is the lack of bass, at least I've heard many negativity in this dept)
- Soundmagic E30 (some says PL30 is more airy & spacious)
Which one do you think is the best option?
Frankly I don't know what to expect, but in general I'm quite worried that too much airiness will also sound too hollow ?
Can anyone help me compare them in term of details, spaciousness, airiness, mid & bass ?
I have a friend which has Kanen MD52 and I've heard it before, and I don't really like the sound because I think it's too holow.
And according to this review:
PL30 is identical to MD52 ???
If it does, then I think PL30 is definitely not an option for me. MD52 sounds so thin & hollow. I feel like hearing music in a deep tunnel with lots of resonance.
