It can never be over emphasized how important tips are. And........you don’t know what you don’t know...........till you finally DO know. It’s as you don’t learn what your missing till you hear it. If we could do the whole thing backwards like hear a perfect CIEM then know what to search for sound expectation wise, with a universal IEM. Lol I must have been a special case, with trying and trying? But in the end I found it. I hope to keep my Encore IEMs my whole life?
