Funny you mentioned this since in the last 2 weeks since I’m waiting for some new TWS to arrive I went back to using some multi-drivers IEMs and they all sound so so good in general and very effortless especially when it comes to imagining.I also think most reviews are way too focused on the tech. I know that a lot of people don't really care much about how the music sounds but are more practical in nature so they want the best tech possible. But i'd rather take superb sound and mediocre tech than mediocre sound and superb tech in a pair of TWS earbuds. Mediocretech in this case does not mean "constant cutouts every 5 seconds" btw, if it's THAT bad i'd rather take the mediocre sound.
I mean, I know some people say "well, TWS earbuds aren't audiophile by nature because of lossy codecs blahblah if you want real audiophile sound you would get wired cans or IEM's!" but that's sort of at the point where they lose me because I listen to a lot of my music on the run, and wires are annoying and distracting to me unless i'm sitting in a chair at home, so obviously I want the best sound possible from the product I'll use the most for my music listening.
Sometimes I do think about getting a pair of wired IEM's to see what i've been missing out on, because it's been probably 5-6 years ago I last used a pair of DECENT wired earbuds, so I can't remember how they compare to a set of expensive TWS's
it’s less of an “issue” on the go because I don’t need the sq for critical listening when out and about but at home it’s a different story.
