The EartechTriple is very similar to the Kc2 in a more refined package with a bit more detail. I should have some exciting news from them shortly regarding universals. They have been working on tuning 2 models and are in beta now. More when my NDA expires.
I am very curious to read more on those once you are allowed to.

I am also looking for a KC2 upgrade.

Checkout the Magaosi K5 - $137 on BF sale in AliEx.
Thank you very much. I have Audbos P4. 4-driver armature. It is really more detailed and has wider scene and bass is good for armature given 955 is responsible for lows having minimum 200Hz with specs. But Magaosi K5 is known as almost the same with H/HQ5 - so I am afraid there should be less bass.

I'm wondering which one has more sub bass without sacrificing overall sound quality comparing to KZ AS10. Any clue?
KC2 has almost the same sub bass comparing to AS10 and there is no trade-off. This is why I value KC2 that much.

When I say "almost" it is more about thickness and strength. Given KC2 are hybrids, subbass and bass has certain length usual for dynamic drivers.

AS10 has kind of cut-off around 40Hz, so I'm looking for something with more 20-30Hz subbass. It doesn't have to be strong, but juicy enough to enjoy low frequencies :)

BQ3 is more v-shaped than KB100? Which one would be more appropriate for a basshead? :)
BQ3 of course, I love them with EDM

KZ ZSN for that juicy sub-bass.

I'd agree that it does go there, but only with extra equalizing. Maybe AS10 does too, I don't know.
I don't equalize...I never equalize... maybe it depends also on your source...

Yeah for sure, no need for eq for me.

That being said not many IEM's can offer any real impact below 30 Hz.

Most of my music would not go THAT low anyway. When the music does have sub bass I do hear enough for my liking.

The Hill Audio S8 came finally through from Malaysia: cute little cherries with the famous "tips fish". Fantastic fit. Thank you Canada Post, really.
