I’m in the club with both IEMs and EXT since yesterday, when the bird landed here.
Using the N8ii, I still love the Phoenix sound signature.
The bird is much clearer. More realistic.
But the Phoenix sounds smoother.
So. Not sure , whether I’ll keep both.
For my ears, the Phoenix fits better.
That's an absolutely fair decision and I am in full agreement with what you are hearing! I personally am finding it is likely that these two birds have found a permanent place in my limited inventory.
The Traillii impresses when you are not looking to get the big wow factor musically. I smile whenever I listen to Traillii with its little sprinkle of additional details and how effortless music can sound with it. The Phonix, while not as clear or realistic, will grab you with its musicality and impress you if you love the VE house signature. When I listen to the right tracks with the Phonix, it can give me goosebumps.
