  @Vidal I'm aware as you said you'd pick it up and return it just to see what they sound like, but I was just commenting as I have experience with both the IE800 & the Asian market on whether or not I'm convinced they're worth it.  Of course sound sig preferences play heavily into this.  All in all, I think people here will be happy if they keep trying out various IEMs in the Asian market.
 
If I had the time I might invest as we'd all like to reach our end game IEM. However I also enjoy trying new IEMs (and headphones), if I got the IE800 would it stop me shopping for more? Probably not.
 
I think it you can get 90% of the sound quality at 20% of the price then it makes sense to go for the Asian IEM

I had a pair of RT 10 that I gave away. Although they are a nice sounding IEM their treble is piercing. It was like an ice pick in the ears.

YMMV

You say RT10 has piercing highs but Z03A don't have. I'm confused. :confused: Because I cannot stand LZ Z03A's piercing treble.

And if the treble on the 4in1 is anywhere like those on Z03A's I'll skip them.

RT10 doesn't have piercing treble
  Anyone tried the macaw rt-10?

any comparison between it and **** 4 in1, kz-zs3/zst, mi hybrid, ath im50/70?
 
I have all of those here with me now apart from the ath im50, well the the wife uses the Hybrids.
 
RT10 is not piercing at all, in fact compared to the 4in1 it's a little dark.
 
Is there a specific thing you're looking for?

Which one do you prefer between RT10 and 4in1?

My personal preference is for a bright earphone so 4in1, the RT10 is a very good IEM though.
 
On that list my preference would be
 
4in1
ZS3
RT-10
ZST
Hybrids
