I own the ultimate ears TF10 IEM and I've been pretty happy with it. One thing that bugs me though is the recessed nature of the mids, I find that I can't enjoy some of my music to its fullest with this kind of sound signature. I'm toying with the idea of buying a new IEM in the 250$ range (or less, if possible), but I'm not sure that this would be a worthy investment - I would like to get a significant improvement over the TF10 and not just some minor adjustment. I haven't looked at the state of market for a couple of years now (after buying the TF10s) so I'm hoping someone might help with proposing an IEM that is:
1) In the 250$ range (or less)
2) A significant improvement over the TF10
3) Has rich and detailed mids, without sacrificing other aspects
Maybe I'm asking too much here and my TF10s are just fine but I would like to know what you think. I looked at the DBA-02 mkII and they look promising, but from what I've read they don't really blow the TF10 out of the water.
