As a sort of exploratory question (aren't those the most dangerous, financially?) I was wondering what CIEM comes closest to the HE-500 in terms of sound? I've had the Heir Audio 4.A and that came pretty close in some ways (dirty thieves relieved me of them) but where the HE-500 may not have bass emphasis I definitely don't really feel like it's missing, just perfectly controlled. The 4.A sometimes felt like it was missing some, though that may be due to lack of airiness that the HE-500 has? Currently my CIEMs are a pair of 8.A's but they are lacking on the high end with a lot on the low end. Sometimes it's just enough but there are other times when it feels a bit much for my ears.
I understand I probably won't find anything to compete with the HE-500's sound stage but I'd love to get close in a CIEM.
Am I dreaming? Does such a headphone exist? If I did this I'd likely be looking to sell my 8.A's to pay for whatever I got so bonus points if it's cheaper than I could sell those for, haha.
