    I like the AK380 as much as I like the LPGT. Talking about sound I don’t think you’re going to consider the LPGT an upgrade of the AK380. If you just want to change, then go on, but only if you’re going to take advantage of the amount of options that the LPGT brings.

    You make me want the N6ii but I don’t like the sound of Solaris. :wink:

    Was wondering how the E5000 is compared to the N3s for you. Im considering between the N3s and E5000s. What sort of Genres do you normally listen to?

    Being torn apart between these 2 IEMs is an understatement. Almost equally priced, they have a lot in common. The BA driver in the N3 brings a bit more clarity, but the bass of the E5000 is amazing, quality and quantity wise. N3's bass is a tad boomier. The mids are meatier on the E5000, but a bit more forward and airier on the N3. The highs are slightly rolled off on both, but they presented differently. The ones from the E5000 are the best for me, because of their tonal presentation, less energic than the N3, but more refined. If I have to keep one IEM, it would be the E5000. Please also take into account that the E5000 isolates much less than the N3. Given on their price/performance ratio, I would give the E5000 a note of 95% and the N3 a 92%.

    I listen to a lot of genres, but mainly Electronic, drone, OST, male/female vocalists, ambient, alternative and folk.

    Thank you very much for your reply. I have a DTR 1 on the way right now hopefully reaches me next week. So am finding an IEM to pair with my fun sounding Ikko OH10s which I love. I think the E5000s would love the power from the Dethonray DAP and i guess it should shine. I listen mainly to metal / OST / Female Vocalists and jazz/ jazz fusion. Seems like E5000 could be the one =) @F700

    With the DTR1, the E5000 really shines. In this combo, the Final outperforms the N3 by quite a margin -> power rules here

    Same here, well. I only have the LPG, but I like my Ak380 Copper and Copper amp quite a lot...

    Love these lower priced earphones around the hundred buck region. They easily give you the wow factor especially when considering the price you pay for them.
