f3100 very raw and has muddy bass.
f4100 energetic but slightly grainy treble.
f7200 smooth but very cold in terms of presentation.
 
comparing to the heaven series, any heaven iem starting from heaven v aging onwards is better.
the new series by fad is very disappointing especially when I love the fad house sound from the heaven series.

What's the difference between V and V aging? does the 2 have different sound?

Hi, I just got my adagio 3s today.   They included a lot of tips.   The nozzle portion of one pack was gray in color while the other small pack was black.   Does anyone know off hand if the difference in color is intended to mark different sound qualities?   I am trying to decide what tips to try out first.   Thanks.

Just tossing in here how happy I am with my Heaven VII's. Hoping to churn out a review soon, but I really like them A LOT.

I recently tested the Heaven IV. I am impressed on what they can do with a single BA driver, although the Heaven IV's sound signature isn't really to my taste. It's an very soft- and dark-sounding earphone. Bass is elevated, but not really punchy, more like a constant rumble. Mids and vocals are very good, though it really begins to smear when there was too much going on at once.
 
How are the higher-end models in comparison?
