Could anyone compare these to the IE80 S?
I haven't heard the S version only the IE80. Overall they have fairly similar sound signatures. Compared to IE80 Ei.xx's bass is more tamed and faster while having similar quantity, the IE80 had more rumble in general and longer decay. Ei.xx will have also a little bit more upper mid presence so vocals are less recessed. High in IE80 have more bite, Ei.xx is smoother with same extension.
Ei.xx will have better separation and details/resolution while IE80 has more open sounding soundstage.
Bare in mid this is comparison to IE80 not 80s, from how I remember IE80, so there might be differences.
Thanks very much for the comparison. Honestly I’m almost certain to join the drop... do you have any suggestions for customisation options? I’ve seen some of your awesome designs, would be good to hear what you think the best combinations are.
Also, is there anywhere I might be able to demo universal versions of these in London before signing up to the drop?
What colors do you have in mind? There are many nice looking combination that always go well together. It also depends if you want to add any extra charges or do it within standard color range.
I like blue, and a wooden or carbon fibre back would be cool too :)
Wood and Carbon will add extra cost to the price. Other than that standard blue transparent will be free of charge. Blue Transparent will carbon will definitely look cool.
