    A concise, detailed, and helpful review. I agree with pretty much everything stated as an Aether owner myself. I'm now starting to think I should've given the H8P more time than I did =). Well done, MrButchi!

    Oh yes, but this can be hard because you want to watch them all the time haha, you need a mirror when you listening with them I guess. :-D

    What a great review (nice pics as well) and pleasure to read MrButchi. Because of your sq & signature description they're also on my wish list from now on. It also helps that Lime Ears is located in EU => saves some taxes on the way ;)

    I'm in the market for a new CIEM and have been doing quite a bit of research these last few weeks. The Aether is high on my radar. How do you feel about them now that you've had them for a bit longer? I intend to use them for portable use, but noticed that you too own some schiit gear. Do the Aether's hiss. Ah the French metro, I remember when they had the old cars. No amount of volume could block out that noise. By the way, great review!! Thanks.

    [user=281588]@DWbirdseye[/user] As a fellow Aether owner, I can't speak for MrButchi, but I've found that even after trying out IEMs with greater technical performance, like the Jomo Audio Samba or the Empire Ears Zeus-R, and IEMs with greater musicality, like the CustomArt Harmony 8.2, the Aether has a mix of the two and a certain quality to the air that makes it special and unique; it's much less fatiguing than the technically-proficient IEMs, and it's more immediately impressive than musicality-focused ones. A healthy balance, and a special flavour that deserves a good hard look from anyone considering a top-shelf CIEM. :)
