    Awesome dude, I have no idea how I acquired these tips, but they 100% are the AET07. Recommend them fully with Nio and M15. Least stuffy of the tips I’ve tried so far (10+ varieties)

    Anyone have any clue what type of eartips these are? So far they’re hands down the best paired up with M15!

    He left them in this thread yesterday! I think he comes away impressed but moderately disappointed because expectations were very high :)

    I tried @Titienne ’s Fir O and it sounds tonally closer to the M15 than it does the MX. We had the luxury of comparing with Z1R and it quickly confirmed it is a better technical performer than Nio. M15 sounds most like a Z1R but with smoothed off upper treble, and more bass quantity (yes, can...

    A8000 isn’t always the most emotionally engaging. Nio wins 70% of the time. A8000 is magical with the right tracks. Up there with KSE in treble effortlessness. Sounds like a mini Utopia!

    So I had some fun trying new iem’s today and am seriously impressed by the new Final flagship. Not pictured, are the Dunu Luna, and they’re quite disappointing. Nio - S+ Musicality | S- Resolution A8000 - A+ Musicality | S+ Resolution Andro S - A Musicality | A+ Resolution Dunu Luna - B...

    Bargain! Better than most sub 1K headphones!

    You know a product is good when you start listening at 1:30 AM and next thing your know it’s 5:30... Using Nio + MX module with symbio L narrow bore tips, added bass and nice 3D stage. These are so good :)

    HiFiMan Susvara

    Forgot about that monster of an amp!

    HiFiMan Susvara

    Insufficient power man, Susvara is fussy. Sadly the only Woo with enough juice would be the WA33.

    Hifiman HE1000-SE

    Actually you’re right, the 1000’s have less center focus compared to Susvara, but HEKse is improved in that (and general image coherence) compared to the v1 and v2 :)

    Effortless is the first word I’d use to describe KSE1500, and besides HE1, Susvara and SR1A’s I think it’s objectively the top performer in today’s lineup of iem’s/ hp’s irregardless of tuning preferences. It just sounds real when given the chance. The problem, and you’re totally right - is that...

    Realistically iem’s at this price range ae ridiculous, but if you use it on a daily basis, it can be justified. Given the budget for an LCD4 or any iem on earth, I’d take the LCD4 every time because it is objectively better, and subjectively to me - and that’s not even a Top 7 headphone for me...

    SONY IER-Z1R

    Have you tried KSE? Ideally KSE1500 with some slight eq to add body to bass, and some upper mids/ lower treble energy... and it’s audio bliss. Especially if you like speed, layering and metal! Think it might be right up your alley
