I'm very close on joining this drop ...... I hope they are much better than my PFE 012.
all I'm going to say is that like everything, Audio Gear also suffers from diminishing returns. The 2 are VERY different, but it depends what sound you're after.done come in thinking that you're going to get exponential results, because that usually will lead to disappointment
Diddles, @Ninjasquirrel is exactly right. The two sound nothing at all alike. The PFE-1 series (grey filters) is far closer to the neutral/reference sound profile, whereas the IE80 has significantly weightier bass (especially midbass), a wider soundstage, and not nearly as analytical an approach as the PFE. As always, preferences heavily come into play here; one cannot objectively be declared better than the other.
