Purchased these 5 in the past 45 days, before then my go-to IEMs were SE215, so this was a massive upgrade… Using BTR5 to drive. Did a lot of research & was only intending on buying the S8F, but the more I research, the more I wanted the rest of the IEMs you see below. I see why ppl say this isn’t a cheap hobby. I looked at many reviews but I also did rely heavily on Crinkle’s list & BGGR reviews. My reasoning for these 5 is that they each are fairly different in their type of sound signature (giving me a good variety). S8F (V-shaped), iSine (harman), 800ST (bright), FH5 (neutral w/bass boost), ER4XR (DF neutral).
in order of favorite: S8F, iSine 20, EX800ST, FH5 / ER4XR (tie)
soo… for you experts, how’d I do?
