CA is advertising this much iterations and modifications as " chasing the continuous improvement" but it tells me that they do not perfect their products to the maximum and just issuing them when they think it is good enough to sell. This is one of the reasons I am now only buying higher end IEMs second hand. Most of the smaller boutique manufacturers will keep releasing new models dozen a dime every year and will claim it is more refined, better sounding, etc and the price of the previous model will get lower fast in 2nd hand.

I can understand that this community is fairly small. Yes, it is huge compared to 20 years ago and much bigger than it was 10 years ago but having this much manufacturers in the market with so much competition and limited buyers, these guys need to keep selling to stay alive. So here comes new flagships, special editions, limited editions with small changes every year to milk the community a bit more and more and more.

I am really losing my interest in this hobby because at the moment it is not possible to keep up with new releases unless you are a well known reviewer who gets the goodies free of charge and I am fed up with getting milked.

Just out of the box .. I like these way more than the OG ...

Bass is more present to my ears and mids are way better done :) ( not as thin )

Fit is great

When did you last hear the OG?

I can agree on that! And they are silent! With my OG and the Fiio M11pro there always was a certain hiss, which is definitively less with the 2020‘s.

The 2020 sounds fuller overall , very coherent :)

Even the case is sexy as hell :)

Yeah, I really dig the cork. Such a cool design choice.

Ken Ball: The only thing we changed was the color of the screws.
Headfi: I hear deeper bass and fuller mids.
