Good point - that's what I was referencing earlier. Seemed like high-level takeaway was tradeoff for bass (Atlas) vs. clarity (Andromeda). I know tuning is slightly different on CIEM models and seal changes dynamics, so still curious to hear if anyone has had luxury of direct comparison.

I’ve the Equinox and should receive the Solstice in a couple of weeks, I’ll let you know. I personally find the Equinox a great improvement over the Atlas even using the same driver. I’m very curioso see how the Solstice sounds, btw I don’t have the Andromeda.

That custom or demo?

Also what fit did you ask for, audiophile or artist?
I went for the artist, at the time I ordered the Equinox there was only the audiophile and I found that there was not enough insulation (also since it was vented). I’ll try to post a picture with the 2 different fit, but even the audiophile are not as deep as other customs iems.

Has anyone got a recommendation for a DAP pairing for the Solstice (apart from ZX507) because I’m looking at the new SR25 but the output impedance is 1.8 Ohms for unbalanced and 1.6 Ohms for balanced and I’m thinking it might be too high? DX160 is below 1 Ohm for both 3.5mm and 4.4mm...

1.5 - 2.0 Ohms was kind of a sweet spot for the Andromeda.
