Ah, great insight and I've already found that after acquiring the A6 my other IEM's (esp. previous favorite Fidue A83) sound overly colorized and bright. The A83 are still good fun but in shorter stretches only. Indeed, I find the A6 quite neutral and balanced and perhaps only lacking in a little upper end "sparkle" / bell like quality that I enjoy with classical piano music and sheen / shimmer of cymbals, for example. But they are never brittle or sibilant, and that's a trade-off I can live with. I posted my brief impressions of the A6 here.
So probably I'll stay with the A6, but other opinions welcomed!
The A83 has a very unique imaging and presentation, but they're not my sound. As you said, the treble is hot, and I also think the mids are not my favourite.
