Recently, I found myself looking for be-all-end-all IEMs. Started with SE846 that quickly spiraled down to several others. I love good bass to a certain degree. I thought I found THE one when I read a million reviews of Vega... then came Atlas. My favorite non-IEM pairs are TH900mk2 (close cousin of D7000) so that should give you some idea about the sound signature and stage I am looking for. I am conscious of how much I am willing to spend and ROI concept so nothing too $$$. I would say Atlas price is just about as much as I can justify no matter how great the sound is. Any recommendations to confuse me even more are greatly appreciated!
