By total upgrade I don't mean, lose treble gain bass, or lose soundstage gain clarity or whatever. I mean an upgrade in all aspects. The reason I cannot change my Ety's is that they are incredibly detailed and flat. I did buy Shure E5c and returned the next week, back then it was selling for 500$, almost twice as much as Ety but it sounded incredibly dull. I cannot listen to earphones without decent treble and by decent I mean Ety decent. I never tried ultimate ears and now people say Triplefi 10pro is good on the treble side, but I wonder if it's as good as Ety or just better than Shure? I know that I won't be buying any Shure's ever since as far as I can see from the response charts, all shures have compressed highs. But I'm thinking to give the UE Triplefi a chance if it does indeed have really good high frequency response like Ety's. Does anyone have a good comparison between those 2?
