I would like to know the best iems for analytic sound. I have 2 CK7s & love the sound signature alot (analytic).

What iems out there have an analytic sound signature?

I have a Sennheiser PX100 over the ear portable headphone & the sound is just too warm & laid back for my tastes although they are good for portability use i just don't like the sound signature.

Any comments or suggestions appreciated. Good, Bad or Ugly!

what price range are you looking at?

if its something like under 200 maybe look at the er4p?

I am currently deriving way too much happiness from my hf5 (my first good IEMs). Too bad you missed the $100 sale, but if you are willing to spend $150, then I would still suggest them (coming from limited experience, so take my recommendation with a grain or salt).

Or ER-6i if you're looking for smth below $100.

++ I think ER6is are great IEMs for neutrality and accuracy for under $100! I even prefer them to UE 5 Pros and Westone UM2s for sound quality when they are amped.

How about Audeo PFE?

They are fairly neutral, but most definitely not analytical - they just sound too lively and lack micro detail for analyzing music IMO. I would recommend to give Head-Direct RE0s or some ATH-CK10s a try.

x100 for ER4P. Not just analytical and detailed, but also incredibly balanced, fast, fun, and musical. Buy without regrets.

Buy ER-4P and then buy the impedance adaptor to change to ER-4S, if you'd like to.

Why? ER-4P is actually said to be the better sounding one and you can get an adapter to make it an ER-4S.. can't make an ER-4S into an ER-4P

ER4P for sure. nothing really comes close for analytical sound. not really my favourite and I dont know if i'd call it natural, but if you want to hear a snail fart at 100 paces these guys are your best bet.
