    I wish I had a chance to listen to Jewel and hopefully down the line to compare with Storm. I thought Storm was superb with anything instrumental and the ability to organise a track was the best I've heard. I agree with the non-fatiguing part, despite how much dynamics it throws at you. I can't...

    Having some quiet time was a huge factor. Based on simply listening on the show floor wouldn't have been enough. It's too chaotic to appreciate how good Storm is. Conversely the first time I tried the jomo gt600 I was crazy for them. On a second listen those emotions cooled a little. Again I...

    I think my X was around 7 weeks and is a bit of a record. Good timing sith drivers and workload I suspect. But yea have an expectation of 12-15 weeks and you won't be disappointed.

    I tried both i cant remember too much as my time with 18s was limited. Preferred the u12t. The 18s felt 'soft' to me, lacked dynamics. Preferred the tuning too. Hopefully others can help out too!

    Hmm I wouldn't call storm boring. It leans a bit musical. Its more a case of what I want out of my totl iems. Probably more specialists.

    I think the 12t will be the iem I end up buying next. Let's see what the price works out after show discount...

    I really enjoyed the 109 pros too - definitely one to check out again when they're released. So easy to drive too.

    The double flanged tips jomo supplied were the best combo. Crystals were crap.

    What a great show! It was great to meet so many of you (I was helping out on the Linsoul/Fir if you're wondering who I am!). The Thieaudio iems got some great reviews from head-fiers! I'm still gathering my own thoughts but so much good stuff. I need a week to recover!

    Good to finally meet you mate! On first listen the GT600 really stood out as a great IEM, I then went away and tried it again later on Sunday and it seemed as if something was 'off' in the presentation. heard it as W shaped on first listen and more mid bass than say the Elysian X for sure...

    We talk about the balance of supply vs demand and value retention and I think there are just enough X out there without killing value. You'd find one if you really fell for it 😄🤣😅😂

    It'll be there! For research purposes had a good session with it earlier in the week. Sadly it triggers my tinnitus a bit in the mid bass, otherwise my wallet would be in trouble...
