[size=small]From Last summer on, I purchased and tested the following, before stopping with these. In no particular order: BD T770, Ath-M50, sure se 215, rockit sounds R-50, Bose earbuds...ugh...lol, Ultrasone Pro 550, 750, UE 700, thinksound ms-1, ClarityOne, Sony EX310, Ath MKII??,Sony MDR-V700DJ, V-MODA Crossfade LP2 ..., and the Yamaha EPH 100SL... To that point...the EPH were the most fun non balanced armature. For all genres.[/size][size=small][/size]
[size=small]I was looking for something a little tighter and something that gave all instruments a level playing field...aka...flat response...I really couldn't hear any gaps...Nothing is overpowering the other. Excellent flat response, without being boring...and without fatigue. No siblance, from what I can hear. Instrument separation is present, and of course the nuances that can't be heard on less expensive ear buds are there, as well. I did the 200 hr burn in, as suggested.[/size][size=small][/size]
[size=small]I listen to vast arrays of music, from: Alterbridge, Esperanza Spalding, Harry Connick Jr., Seal, Metallica, Joe Pass, Coltrane, Sade, Maxwell, Motley Crue, Faure, Ravel, Miles...Art Blakey, Steve Vai, Satriani, Yo-Yo Ma, Paco de Lucia, Lenny Kravitz, yada yada...[/size][size=small][/size]
[size=small]There are a ton of tips...of course...but what sticks out....the ear pieces are on a swivel....this allows you to adjust placement direction....These top all IEM under $200...balanced armatures, double, triple...these are the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.[/size]
Trance/Bass/Techno... Most flat IEMs require you to use you bass boost for these genres...and then sound quality goes down... NOT WITH THESE!!!
[size=small]Quality sonic reproduction is what I was searching for...and these babies pleasantly deliver.[/size]
[size=small]I can personally give feedback on any of the headphones/IEMs mentioned.[/size]
