    With the right fit and source , Solaris has great bass :) sure there are iems out there with more mids , but "thinish" isnt true... maybe you had a bad fit

    EE Legend X has even better soundstage to my ears

    Probably my next impulse buy. I wish it was easier to demo around here.

    If you’re getting hit with customs fees regardless (not sure how US imports work in Canada?), I’d take a look at the limited edition versions offered in Japan. For some reason, MSRP is cheaper there, and you can get it serviced at Empire Ears regardless of where you get them.

    Yes, SPC would be a better choice

    How are the limited edition ones different? The way imports work is that you pay customs fees on anything over $100, however many sellers slyly mark the declared value as less than that to avoid any fees. I would be buying used as it's easier to flip at less of a loss if I decide not to keep it. In any case I have an Anole VX coming in the mail this week so that should keep me occupied for a while :)

    Ah if you’re buying used then it’s a moot point :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    The limited edition ones sound the same but have different (imo nicer) designs. One has a red burl plate with a clear shell and the other has a brushed gold plate with a clear shell. I just mentioned it as a possible option since if you’re getting hit with import duties regardless, the ~$100 cheaper Japanese MSRP would likely offset the cheaper shipping costs from the US.

    This guy has lots of good used gear (and he ships free from China) and I think he had one of those LX's not too long ago. He's been a pleasure to deal with and has lots of good gear ad negotiable prices. I won't say anything more though as this is the wrong thread.

    Yes... For me now, is the best pairing for Solaris. Try in TRRS... it will be more engaging Fun...

    using pure silver is good if u want more clarity, but compensate in Body bass (rumble will be detail, but much less puncy).

    And DAP will take a huge part in to the cable as well.. that's why is must be a combo

    try pure silver like fiio LC-D series :floatsmile:

    Back in the 1980s, I upgraded from cheap OEM cables to quality interconnects and the sound definitely improved. Ever since then, I've always made modest offerings of green rectangles to the cable gods, but I don't go overboard with it. Honestly, I doubt I'd be able to hear any difference between a $100 and $1000 IEM cable. On a whim, I ordered a Fiio balanced SPC IEM cable because I remembered how comfortable the FH7 cable is, and comfort seems to be something Fiio does well.

    I use Fiio lc4.4D with Solaris , the cable is very soft and comfy to wear :)

    The pure silver adds no color to sound , which is in my ears an improvement :)

    Very clean and clear

    Hello Solaris owners,
    Could you please give me a recommendation for a good soft cable that improve a little the bass without impacting the soundstage? I have the Ares II and the FiiO cables in my shortlist but there might be better options. My budget is around 200$

    Not tried it with Solaris as I have the 2-pin version, but if you can stretch to $299 then the Dunu Hulk is a cable worth looking into. Soft, thick and sounds really good on my 2-pin TOTL IEMs like Stealth Sonics C9 and EE Zeus. It also has the benefit of interchangeable connectors so you can use it with 3.5mm, 2.5mm and 4.4mm sources just by swapping cable connectors.

    Thank you for the recommendation, but it is a little over my budget

    WRT Solaris vs Legend X, is there a difference in sound between them that can be attributed to tube vs tubeless on the BAs? I see tubeless designs touted as superior, and I'm curious if the Solaris is doing something super wonderful that the Legend X can't because it has tubes. Or, can tube and tubeless designs both deliver equally excellent sound, provided they're well designed/tuned?
