    Oriolus Traillii Electrostatic Hybrid IEM discussion thread

    I definitely shared the fear initially. I think some of it has to do with the fact that there are so many hyped new IEMs that dropped at the same time. Plus, many of them scratched an itch that folks had been asking for for a while (in audiophile IEM terms, like a year, lol). An Ely with DD...

    I sold my SE200 because the W2 sounded so good and is so convenient. Is it as good as the SE200, no. Is it good enough for me to free that cash up, clearly

    US Head-Fi Tour: VISION EARS ELYSIUM vs. VE8 vs. ERLKöNIG TOTL CIEM Tour - Starting November 2019

    Fantastic news! Super excited to hear them. Slight chance the timing might work out for me to also have the Thummim/Homonculus at the same time. Will be able to compare all three to the Traillii.

    I’d second this. It’s amazing for edm. The only unicorn I could imagine replacing the Traillii would be the Trailli sound signature with DD bass, boosted slightly, without (magically) impacting the rest of the frequency response.

    I had a set of Utopia for a couple years. They’re easy to drive and sounded amazing out of most stuff I had (RME ADI2 and a bunch of DAPs). I sold the Utopia to fund the Trailli and haven’t regretted it. That being said, portability is a factor for me, so that plays in for sure. Maybe I’m an...

    I think I’m in the minority, but I landed on the Xelastec and actually went up to the S from the SS I’m used to using. Super comfortable for me.

    All of you folks with LX or LXSE are making it increasingly hard for me to resist getting a demo. What would be the main reason someone would choose the original over the SE and vice versa?
