As for perspectives. I think I had a realization lately that I just don't value some things as high as others. I can recognize when some things are better, but its really all about what I actually want to stick in my ears and listen to most. It seems like some of that gets lost in the crazy quest for more and more headphones/iems.Always interesting to read all the different perspectives If you wind up selling your Atlas, let me know...I may be interested.
And I will certainly let you know if I do make that decision to sell the atlas. Im just getting to a point where I have noticed that my choices in what headphones to listen to lately are either my current favorite high end (obviously nio right now), or I go to much much cheaper IEMs that have a specific purpose. Specifically the er2xr when I need isolation, like when mowing the lawn or my aftershokz aeropex. The aeropex would be firmly at the bottom of the list in terms of sound quality, but they are bluetooth, sound fine for podcasts, and offer 0 isolation whatsoever as they are bone conduction, which is perfect for working out outdoors when I need to be aware of my surroundings. And thats kind of all I find myself using lately.
The point of all that being that I just havent actually listened to my atlas in such a long time, except for doing comparisons to more recent stuff. So I just have a hard time justifying keeping it when I dont use it, especially since they definitely still have some value. Kind of also why I am considering selling the z1r. As good as it is, for my uses (and for the fit) I cant really see myself reaching for it much if at all over the nio, even though I do think it still bests it in a number of ways. Basically I kind of feel like I really should just sell off the whole middle of my list there.
