Suggestions for a next move

Hi there folks, I have just finished paying for my Sundaras so I am looking to get my next set of IEMs.
So far I have TRI i3s, BL 03s and Tripowin TC 01`s.
I use a Magni 3 Heresy/Modi 3 stack for desktop, Ifi Hip DAC for bedroom and holidays and an Earman Eagle for on the go.
Musical tastes include Jazz, Prog, Punk, Metal, Psychedelic etc. Tbh just about anything as long as its good.
My budget would be about $300/£250
I have been considering BQEYZ Spring 2, Mangird Tea, Thieaudio Legacy 4 and Veedix Silver String.
Any other suggestions would be welcome.
Thanks

Could you do a comparison between the IE 300 vs the IE 900? I have yet to hear either. PS… I am German, but I live in the United States. :slight_smile:

I wanted YOUR reactions.

I’ll throw my hat in for the Legacy 4.
The more I listen to them the more I love them.
Almost prefer them to my S8F’s.

Let me explain it this way;

I received both earbuds immediately after their release. Since then I have had the IE300, now the IE900, in my ear for many hours every day.

If you look at the reviews on YouTube or in the trade press, you will see that there is not a single bad review for both.

Based on my experience, I can only confirm these findings.

With the 300‘s, you get an excellent earphone, which the 900’s has even more Sound quality with a little more definition in all frequency ranges, a touch more spatiality and more precise bass resolution.

Oh, I was asked how punchy the bass is presented, the answer is: very neat!

But what fascinates me most is the very pronounced tonal “naturalness” of these two earphones, this is often my problem with the vast majority of ChiFi earphones, the tonality of which often annoys me More befor I am satisfied.

Due to these mentioned qualities, I would personally prefer these two in-ear‘s to their respective over-ear „partners“!

Thanks to all for their comments. I`m like a kid in a candy store! So many I want to try. Will I manage to get them all before my wife divorces me?

We can only wait and see!

The Mangird Tea is kind of a must have the collective seems to have spoken. The Spring 2 is a curiosity, I really want to try the piezoelectric driver. I have tried the Legacy 3 and loved them and the 4s are supposed to be even better. The Veedix Silver String (blue ones, SO pretty!) were an alternative to the Teas, being the same DD, BA mix, and I have heard very good things of them.
Now I have to add the Sennys to the mix :smile:

edit: The IE 900`s would result in a very quick separation with the only winner being the divorce lawyers. Her patience extends only so far! :smiley:

But tell me beforehand when and where so I can pick it up :grin:

The WAF (wife approval factor) is important indeed :wink:
