    Exactly ! I'm really in no position to judge you on this one :wink:

    If anything, I would love sharper and deeper bass on my next IEMs, although I wouldn't mind bigger sound stage. Thank you for your feedback, I'll browse my choices when the time of change comes !

    I'll probably buy the volume controller today, I'll keep you guys informed.

    Thanks, it's a always a pleasure to learn with you guys !

    True, the W4 are less sensitive. Though the W4 has a slightly too much bass for me and I would prefer a little more spark to the treble.

    The UM2's are definitely sensitive (it's not just your ears). I use them mainly out of my older 4Gen iPod and for most tracks I have to put the volume @ ~ 3-5% (hardly any black bar showing on the slider). As for hissing: yep, got that too. They are basically un-useable direct from my MBP, the hiss is REALLY apparent. 
     
    I really do enjoy the sound signature, but yea...they're super SUPER picky.

    Weird how you guys can have them so soft and can still be so loud. I used it on my Walkman and the least I need was maybe about 16-17/30. Don't know if it's just my ears spoiling but for other IEMs, that seems to be normal...
