And the better answer is...

... Sorry, just could not contain myself.
 
The EX1000 are my First Love in high end IEMs, dating back to 2011/12. Might or might not compete with new generations (new technology) IEMs, but still love them for their transparency, bass, as well as, sound stage presentation. 
 
Cheers

The Z5 won't fit into my ears, they keep dropping off, whiles the EX1000 fits well.

Been long since I heard them but its down to whether you like cold analytical stuff I think whereas trend these days is the opposite.
There's nothing cold or analytical about my EX1000s out of my Sony NW-WM1A DAP. Maybe fairly neutral, with great bass.

I manage to give these a brief listen at Canjam and my immediate impression is how close they sound to the AKT8ie, which I've listened briefly to as well half a year ago. I believe both of them are roughly the same price too.

The Xelento comes with a normal cable and a cable with remote for smartphone.
