        Planars never seem to image that well, it seems to be simply due to physics of the operating principle of planar magnetic design. I generally find technical superiority in the dynamic driver headphones.

        I can dream. Verite seems to have that magic like Utopia does. Oh my...

        Agreed. But planars have that weight and impact that dynamics can only dream of (TH900 gets close tho).

        That's why we need at least one dynamic and one planar.

        Honestly MX4 and LCD-4 (+Phonitor 2) helped me realize planars aren't crap like I judged from my experience with LCD-2 pre-faz and hifiman. I would be so down to try an LFF modded Hifiman HE-6/HE-5. Seems like winners.

        I feel like Utopia does impact on par. But planar bass is special. Feels like it comes from you at all angles. Pleasant for sure.

        Not really. I think Etymotics deserve praise for very high performance, which is well worth the cost and then some. The most well put together IEM I've ever heard. QC, reliability, build, sound quality and cohesiveness. Having a true neutral reference is great.

      Well I have to say Light Harmonic Stella is actually a pretty darn great IEM. Timbre and stereo image is outstanding.

        Whether or not it's good, fact remains that it's a rip-off. The fact that it sounds great is more a testament to KB's work than anything else.

        They aren't mine to send. I just got a chance to try them... but I'd really like to hear what purr1n thinks of these.

        Ultimately I don't care about the CA/LH shit because no one freaking actually knows, and its not my bizz. I'm also not a customer since I'm already happy with the gear that I have and for the chance to try different things.

      So Noble's Katana absolutely mops the floor with Andromeda, cause Andro actually sucks, but ER4SR wrecks every IEM in existence. Yup.

        Other folks have done direct comparisons andro to katana and had the same result with the katana being clearly superior.

        What is your source? Andros are very OI dependent, they could easily sound bad with the wrong pairing.

        @Merrick Interesting. I was using my Samsung Galaxy S8, but I also tried on the ZDT Jr. low Z output. Didn't notice a huge change.

        Still I feel it won't satisfy me unless bass quality is improved or at least quantity reduced, as well as that treble glare and lack of air on top. My preferences are too specific and I had too many expectstions before trying them.

        I think having the Gungnir Multibit - XLR-to-RCA in WA7 and Utopia with it to colour my perception. I could see the built in DAC sucking considering the chip is used on portable players. My bias is showing now, and it takes guts to be objective... won't have this unit here for very long sadly, cause it's so pretty. But, that's not what matters - sound is.

      Hugo 2 vs Gungnir MB (B-series) showdown results: Gungnir Multibit wins for pure sound, Hugo 2 wins for bling-bling (something? Ha). Good show.
