    I've taken the ZS7 on a plane and it did really well, good isolation and the extra bass helped keep out the airplane noise. I think the CA4 would be a good travel IEM-it's got a good amount of bass and if something happened to it it wouldn't be a huge loss...

    Also, I meant to ask, do you think it is worth buying a V2 rev 3 if you already have a V2 rev 1 and a CNT-1?

    And is the DT6 really that horrible? I am looking for a transit IEM to test against the V80 / KZ7, and the DT6 are cheap right now.

    oh but it was never that expensive was it?

    Nope, it was in the ‘good ol days’, when KZs were $4, $7, $9, etc.

    I remember when the 1st KZ hit $13-$14, and we all thought the world was gonna end! Now they’re hitting $40, $60, even $100+!

    DT6 are great fun to listen!
    The stage is perceived as hugely spacious (spatially distorted for me, but I do enjoy listening to piano duets sounding three-dimensional); the timbre is off.
    As long as you do not expect DT6 to be 100% realistic, it can be most fun IEM experience ever and for under $20, it is a winner for me in a "fun" category.

    If you're not scared to try foams, I would try the Newbee foam tips. I use em on all my iems, except for my TFZ NO.3 (Spinfit CP145 large on those...because I find this set kinda dark sounding and like a bit more upper mids and treble). For everything else I own, Newbee foams are the best for me. Very soft, spongy memory foam, that is smooth in the ear, unlike Comply or Dekoni, which I find very rough and uncomfortable. The Newbees are like a cross between a silicone and a foam, imo. Great comfort, clean up easy, and can be worn for hours. They also seem to tame any peaks in the highs, yet still allow all the details to come through.

    I like the Newbee eartips as well, includes a carrying case too which is pretty nice for how cheap they are.
