Thanks haha. I’ve had an Elear and wasn’t toooo fond of it. Too metallic and harsh. I tried the Clears and Utopias as well. While the Utopia is wonderful, it’s not a headphone it’d like to keep. Too expensive and honestly just a little too involving. Amazing set of cans… I liked the Clear but they just didn’t do anything much for me.
Been wanted to try ZMFs newer offerings (Verite, Aeolus) however I’ve heard the Aeolus may be too thick sounding? Unsure… I tried the Autuer at CanJam several times but it’s hard to get a good impressions. Overall it just felt a bit stale (but bad listening conditions)
LCD2C… I’ve owned an aluminum LCD2 Fazor - not sure how different they are, but it was a bit too thick to own as my open headphone. Amazing bass though.
I do like iems… but fitment is always an issue. I’ve owned Andros (amazing but couldn’t wear over 1.5 hours).
Current IEMs I have are LCDi4, Periodic Audio BE, and Shinola Canfield IEMs
