sirius has a more addictive midrange imo. aria and zeus are technically better though and compromise on musicality
hmmm... ok, from what I understand, all 3 are quality IEM's. The sirius may not actually be an upgrade to the Aria in terms of performance but a sidegrade which offers something different and is a great IEM in its own right. I really hope a shop in the uk has a demo I can try, these are seriously cool.

Anyone used Sirius with mojo?

I am quite shocked that it is TOTL sounding. for the sound, the sirius is at least worth 1.5k when comparing to ciems brand
So > 1.5k will sound better ?

I like spinfits.


for me i like jvc spiral dot for the enhanced soundstage

I don't find myself considering JVC spiral dots in IEMs that can have fuzzy bass, as wide bore tips often sacrifice some bass definition for that soundstage improvement. I liked this best with Spinfits, but that is because I prefer really firm bass and precision treble. The Spinfits tame warmth when it gets a little exuberant too, I find.

when u reach that price point, it is about sound preference but the resolution is totl. 1.5k is simply a measurement

Basically yeah, at that tier, it about preference over the actual fidelity. Unless they've really screwed it up, fidelity will be pretty similar regardless of which top-tier IEM you listen it, it just becomes about which one has the sound signature or ergonomics or looks or whatever you like most.
