Based on pure sound quality, which do you think will you buy or will buy again? To be fair, those which need burn-in are assumed to be sufficiently burned-in. The tips and amps used will vary based on one's experience so let's disregard this one. If you have not heard the IEM, then don't vote. Just vote based on what you have heard or owned. Let's assume that we have found the IEM of our own choice (sound sig) then what will it be.

Everything about the W3 is wonderful to my ears. I kind of cheated as I have only heard the Turbines out of the others but I really cannot imagine them beating or coming close to the perfection that is the W3 =P

Yeah I agree, this is definitely not going to be a helpful poll for what YOU would want to get.

i think it's not just being a fan or something like that. we're grown ups here and let's just be honest to ourselves. perhaps that would help others. i think bias will come in if most or all persons who will vote use the same IEM (as I said don't vote the IEM if you have not heard/owned it). but i think that's part of the poll. if that IEM is so popular because of its sound quality then let it be.

Where's option for TF10?
If I vote for TF10 my opinion is worthless because I don't own any other IEM.

But opinion just from one or two people doesn't make it gospel, you should only vote if you only every single one.

yep like voltag3 just said the 7 is more balanced, the 8 can really pound out the bass at times and the treble is fantastically clear but there is just a bit too much of it on the 8. i can feel my ears clenching a lot with them. my brain likes but my ears keep feeling like they keep getting bitch slapped.


they sound great in the way a rich chocolate cake tastes great, yes you love it but too much and you need something a little clearer on the pallete.

now im not saying i prefer the 7 to the 8 just saying if i to have only one i could live with using the 7 everyday and be very happy, the 8 would exhaust me
