I am trying to resist other purchases, including sales, so I have the cash to put toward the FH5s. If the FH5s has notable peaks at 5 or 6 kHz, like the FD5, I will likely pass on the FH5s.

FD5 doesn't sound too harsh though, to my ears. Have you heard it?

I know what my personal hearing sensitivities are and have read many reviews from trusted reviewers that mention the FD5's treble as being a potential issue for some that are treble sensitive. From past experience, a spike at 5-6 kHz, like the one that the FD5 has, is annoying to me and it oftentimes sets off my tinnitus. I don't EQ because I might as well purchase an IEM whose tuning I like instead of dressing up one I do not like.

Okay. Tinnitus is a serious issue. And I also hold same view towards eq-ing from the days when my daily driver was Soundmagic E50C.

You know seeing how good the FD5 is, and how that IEM is constructed, I kinda think that they developed it to perfect the DD technology so that they can step things up and put two of it along with two BAs to ensure a full coverage of the spectrum. They probably know how to house the DDs in a way that it'll remove distortion and interference and let the BAs truly speak their language. Just me and my $0.02.

I truly am awaiting this beast. I really love my FD5 to bits.

FH5S is hybrid, it is a different series from FD5
Okay, I'll be more specific. I loved FD5, but even with the larger bore and sednaearfit light tips, on very very rare occasion the bass was slightly much than my preference, and the midrange tonality was slightly warmer than 3DT. Nothing dela breaking, though. If I did not have UM 3DT, I would have picked up FD5 in a heartbeat and I would be committed to it for a lifetime.

Now, will the FH5s be one such thing, or even better?
