    True, if u are happy with the current set. There is no reason to buy new iems/headphones unless you want to try something new :)

    1. Shure kse 1200. Weird frequency response peak and dip but outperforms other iem's. Single diaphragm driver is speaker like in its reproduction and sounds much more pleasing than disjointed multi driver iem's. Requires a proper seal with foam tips to provide body and bass.
    2. noble audio khan. Quite nice all round but hot treble.
    3. 64 audio u12t. Good technically due to the sheer number of drivers, but i felt they had staged back, diffused mid range.
    4. Andromeda. Really, a fantastic and safe option. I've considered going back a number of times for versatility.

    I'm interested in trying the 64 audio tia trio.

    Is someone tallying the statistics here? If not, is there a way to access all the posts via a text download? I was thinking I might write a simple python script to count the number of times each IEM is mentioned.

    Any recommendations for Classic rock/Metal music with fast bass and detailed mids and non harsh trebles. And to drive with N6ii without hiss.

    Thanks in advance!

    You really have to check out Sony IER-M9. They pair very well with N6ii (A01 motherboard). The sound is extremely musical and well balanced with no sacrifices or weaknesses. I am sure it will meet all your needs!

    Some people on head-fi have also reported the sweetness of M9 and N6ii too.

    I read Pinky Powers review about the Noble Audio Encore $1850 Universal IEM and purchased them. It took a while to finally find the perfect tip. But later they seemed for me to be the ultimate rock/metal IEM.

    Just slightly warm but really fairly neutral with a recession in the lower midrange which draws attention to the mids. Nice big spacious treble which is detailed but not too hot. Out of everything I own they have now risen to the top as daily driver Metal and Rock gems! Honestly I never thought I would like them this much in the end?

    Fast and detailed, slightly warm but technically accurate still forgiving in the places you need for metal!


    Don’t know how they are with hiss, don’t own anything with that?

    Not sure. I listened to the ones at the last CanJam NYC.

    I have recently bought the Katana and I’m very surprised by how well it handles rock and metal, so fast and detailed with good sub bass rumble. Beats out the andromeda by a long shot in my opinion.
  13. mvvRAZ
    +1 for the Katana, especially if you manage to achieve a good fit

    Yes, there is a bunch of fuzzy logic with peoples experiences with the Noble IEMs. Stuff about BA burn-in? I don’t know, the whole thing may have been me myself getting used to a more audiophile bass? That and finally finding tips? I’m at a loss knowing what happened? Lol

    But they are great for rock and metal!
  15. Redcarmoose
    Fit IS everything. It’s it all!
