Most detailed, accurate, clear, neutral IEMs - Page 7

There is no problem with using a single driver...  There is no problem with using a dual driver...  There is no problem with using a hybrid approach.  I'm not attacking the W4 for it's multi-driver design...  I'm stating that it isn't neutral since it isn't.  It's got a warm sound to it and a mid-bass hump that is colored. 


Correction:

The 20 driver, proof of concept was built by the "Wizard" Dr. John, while in Thailand, long before Heir Audio ever began, proof of that can be found on Dr John's face book page

Now on to the topic....



For neutral accurate etc, at crazy levels I would strongly recommend looking into the Noble PR universal IEM.

It is mind boggling... Feels like it enervates areas of the cochlea that has never been activated before.. Goose bump level stuff.

unless it is a custom IEM , i would start a loan tour - back up your statement with actions  ;)

 

i mean , if it's that good then a loan tour is the best way to attract new customers.....

We will probably have something in the future with Chord Electronics, as they bring Noble gear to the exhibits they attend in Europe

Well I came across this thread with the exact question as the OP. I thank those that provided the technical information, but it's over my head.   Would someone provide a good recommendation list of custom and universal fitting IEMs with price points that meet the question of the OP?  I'd like a large starting point at least. If anything I can take it from there and read the multitude of comparisons in the threads off the forums.  Thanks!

In addition to the Noble listed above - the UE UERM has been mentioned numerous times in the threads as an example of a neutral can - also the 1964 Ears V6 (not the S model as it has a bass boost)

In terms of customs, the UERM has always been a classic recommendation over and over. 

 

As for universals, Etymotic ER4, HiFiMan RE-272, I might even want to add the SD-2 to that list.

Can I help you to remove SD-2 from that list? :cool:

It's true that they aren't as neutral...  They measure closer to the RE-400 in terms of tonality though.
