The Phiaton PS 20 looks kind of interesting and very comfortable. Just curious if anyone has tried it yet.

Yep, it's quite impressive in terms of sound but as usual not for those with smaller outer ears and the isolation is mediocre. Sound is bottom-heavy but the midrange and presentation are most impressive - they sound more like earbuds than IEMs and have no veil over the mids whatsoever.

hmmm, that sounds like something I would like as I don't mind mediocre isolation and like some bass :). If the mids and treble are good I may just have to try a pair of these. Need to sell off some stuff first though.

How does it compare to the Phiaton PS 210?

They're pretty different. The PS210 is lean-sounding and very spacious while the PS20 is powerful at the low end and has nice thickness and articulation. I'd say the PS20 is more of a 'consumer' type of sound while the PS210 is more 'audiophile'.
