I've tried a couple of in-ears so far and as I understand you can't have it all. So if I had to sacrifice something, let it be bass. Good ones sony-xba-n3 https://www.head-fi.org/showcase/sony-xba-n3.22428/reviews They broke so I got my money back, but so far they are my reference point. Work with all kinds of music. Mids are a bit recessed keeping them from being perfect. Just want to see if I can find something better and cheaper perhaps. Lovely treble extension and soundstage. But cost 230 EUR with shipping. URBANFUN Hi-Fi MARK II https://audiobudget.com/product/URBANFUN/Hi-Fi-Mk2B I am very happy with them when it comes to rock and techno/house and other genres of that type, very musical. Even more so then the Sony due to a very pleasant sound signature. But they fall flat with all my acoustic and ambient music reference albums/tracks. They lack treble extension and soundstage. If they had that they would beat Sony. So here are two tracks that are examples of requirements they do not meet. This one is a good test for bass mids and highs. They fail the highs test. On these headphones you don't get the timbre/life in the violin, a more flat sound in the highs. This track should surround you, it's very spatial/wide/3d. But on these headphones it's flat. Sound is clearly coming from left and right. I guess this is what you call narrow soundstage. Any Ambient genre music is basically a no play on these headphones: Bad ones compared to above mentioned models: https://audiobudget.com/product/BGVP/SGZ-DN1 Havi B3 Pro1 Known in some circles for soundstage, but the clarity of the highs and the sound in general is low-fi for me. In comparison to Sony they are like cheap headphones with some bad spatial/3d effect added to them. Like the ones in Windows sound settings. I strongly do not recommend them for soundstage fans. Urbanfun are also better due to higher quality representation of lows, mids and highs, minus the bad 3d effect.
