Just wanna share my experience and voice out some thoughts. (1 month milestone). It's really an up and down journey for me with the A3. At first impression, the A3 seem overly bassy to me which I was not used to. Then came the appeal of the stock hook which I get stares from people, including feeling that the cable's a little lengthy. Then the fit hits me, ruining the experience having to re-adjust every once in a while(Took me 2-3 weeks to realize a perfect fitting method).
But the question here now for me is, is it all worth the try? HELL YEAH. I came from feeling superficial to purchase, to hating some factors about it, and now to loving everything about it. Now, it's just amazing highs, and the bass is just mmmm~. Switched eartips, switched cable and insertion method, now it's all just perfect.
The lesson I've learned. Sure, there may be things we all dislike about a certain IEM, but a fix is all it need. Who knows it may very well be the one you're looking for. So If you happen to dislike a earphone/headphone, give it time, do adjustments, try different tips/cable/insertion/DAP. It may very well be an end game earphone for you.
It's just like looking at your love of your life, I think it applies the same way. So, If you have someone you like. You go for it like you're looking at a 1k gem which only cost 200. If you're in a mist of a quarrel, fix em like you're fixing your IEM. And If you already with someone you love, go on and thank them, gave em a silent kiss as they're what made you perfect.
