what he probably means is , if i keep Trailli , i don't have a reason to keep buying/trying stuff

and this is no fun - hence he sells it and he continues trying new toys

smart.

Dude, seriously now! 😝

Isn't that the whole point of listening to music? 🤔
I don’t know how to explain it, I prefer a more raw and cold approach to the sound - It is easier for me to connect to the music on a more emotional level when it is presented that way - the A12t for example has similar tuning to the traillii imo, but fits my overall preferences better

Also, as I mentioned - desert that’s too sweet

Haha not at all, as I mentioned yesterday, I actively wanted to listen to the A12t more than I did the traillii

I suppose it’s a similar case to the Erl back when I owned it last year - an IEM who’s value I can see and appreciate, but can’t really connect to myself

@mvvRAZ, trying to find the post where you part ways with the FuSang + others. I've completely missed it. What happened?

Traded the FuSang for the traillii, sold the traillii and now I’m back to the A12t/A18S combo awaiting new and spicy releases :)

My eyes are firmly fixed on the Elysium EXT! Hope you enjoy them both. Could be quite complimentary!

Im thinking if it has to do with what you’re doing while listening to music. Are you working/playing games simultaneously for example?

If mids are too forward or rich it kinda makes me lose focus and gives me a headace lol.

VE8 has also been getting less and less use from me due to this.

Yeah my listening is almost exclusively while working/walking/eating etc - always while doing something. Overly bright and forward IEMs are no-go because they’re too fatiguing and my listening sessions can be hours and hours long

It’s also to a large extent related to what I listen to, a lot of my music is rather aggressive/depressive, and a very smooth, organic and musical-sounding IEM just cannot transmit that tone and setting adequately

Not that I'm aware of but that needs to happen. Maybe an EE x @RTodd collaboration. They make the IEM, you sort the Spicy Case.

Does anyone know any dealers in the EU that stock the IE900? I’m having a hard time finding any that can ship it to me
