I am just beginning to explore IEM's and dipped a toe by buying the KZ ATE and KZ ES4. I love the ATE for their vibrancy and attack but find them a little sibilant. The ED$'s are much more controlled with mids and voices but i find the soundstage a little narrow.

Can anyone recommend an IEM that has the attack and, energy and soundstage of the ATE with the more controlled tone of the ED4

Thanks

It's a bit more expensive but the iBasso IT01 ticks several of your boxes. Well worth the $99 ask. Maybe read about it and see what you think.

The it01 is very good at the price range. For lower price, I think the final e2000/3000 will be one of the best choices. The finals' has a wide sound stage and are controlled.

The e2000 is balanced and the e2000 is more v-shaped. I personally prefer the lower priced e2000 as I think the mid is better in it

I have the IT01’s also and think they are a very good earphone and also have the KZ ZS10’s and think both are very close in sound quality with the 10’s being just a bit brighter but still have the bass just about equal and about half as much.
