I hope you and your family are having a good time over the holidays as well as staying safe during these hard hitting COVID times.
I happened to stumble across this forum in the search of some good IEMs that have great imaging and soundstage, as footsteps are key in my game. I have been lurking and looking at similar posts but I decided to post just to get the best opinions from people who know about these things more than me.
Background info: I play Rainbow Six Siege on a collegiate esports level, as well as at a semi-proish level, and if you have ever played this game you know sound ques such as footsteps, barricades breaking, etc they are key. I currently am using the 7hz timeless as they were recommended to me, however, they aren’t proving as good as they were hyped in my opinion in terms of gaming, music wise they’re amazing. So I have around a 220$ budget, as I am returning the 7hz timeless, and will use the money I get back to buy these new IEMs.
DAC: I plan to drive these IEMS with the Qudelix-5K
Also, before you recommend or say headphones over IEMs, Headphones overtime start to hurt the top of my head and I wear glasses, which make it a huge pain on the sides of my head.
So any help is greatly appreciated as I am fairly new to this scene and just need some help/advice!
IEMS I am currently looking at:
The TANCHJIM Oxygen, really thinking about spending the extra $$ to afford these.
The TANCHJIM Hana is the one I am leaning to the most.
Lastly, The Moondrop Starfield I’ve been looking at getting cause I heard the soundstage is immaculate in terms of the price.
