Ken generally speaking would you agree with @audio123 :

Andromeda signature is for vocals

And

Nova is full bodied, warm and dark

audio123 thanks! I enjoyed TWF41 myself, have been using it with my DX90 for well over a month now and is currently my daily driver. I agree that it is warm, I don't find it to be too thick, but I have no experience with thin sounding IEM either, so I can't make a good judgement myself. And my ear definitely isn't trained to hear any coherence issue, but it is a hybird dynamic and planar, so I guess it's expected to some degree. :)

Happy to know Nova is better in technicality! I have some problem with TWF41 fit, hopefully Nova fit my ear better and can be my daily driver.

lush and creamy sounding would be a better choice of words

I'm still struggling with the choice of audiophile words. :D

I don't find it to be hard to drive, but between DX90 and the Radius LCH91 DAC/Amp, it doesn't change drastically. Maybe I'll try with some better Amp if I have the chance.

Getting a bit off topic, now back to Nova. :)

Looks like my NOVA might have shipped.
 
I just got an email from CA to review the product I purchased.

I got this email to.  However, didn't get any shipping info so I'm not sure it's been shipped.

Will the different editions sound different as compared to the original version? For example, the Korea edition is tuned for korea music and ak players LOL

  as upper mids is my favourite section and I listened to female vocals, the nova I would say is dark and lack the energy.
However, the imaging and presentation is good without a doubt. I try to appreciate the sound of it but I need the boost in upper mids.
Still considering if I should plunge for the Nova for its technicality.
 
I haven't heard them yet - but I'm really confused - and wondering why the graph actually says these have great upper mids, but you're claiming they're not.
 
The upper mid-range starts from just after 1 kHz - and it is precisely in the 2-3 kHz range where the Nova has a slight rise.  It's only about 2.5 dB - but its exactly this frequency range which gives air and sweetness to female vocals.  The range at 3.5-4.5 has virtually no effect on vocals and its an area a lot of manufacturers dip.
 
I'm hoping someone else who has actually heard the Novas (for a decent amount of time) will chime in.
