IEMS with great sound stage and imaging/articulation <$300
Total noobie but thank you for reading, Only headphones/IEMS I've ever owned GEN 0 Astro A40s, and Tin T2s. Both are dead/dieing, so I'm looking for a replacement/upgrade. I don't know if it's possible at this price point, but my main use case is being able to identify the sounds in my current environment when a lot is going on. And be able to track them correctly. Like, oh there's footsteps close, they're above me and trying to get behind me. While not losing it in stuff that might be happening farther out, a gunfight down the street for example. I'd like a neutral sound signature if at all possible. No amp preferably, I plug in my headphones into a GO XLR Mini if that helps. BTW I'd prefer IEMs, cuz I hate that bald spot thing on my head after wearing headphones for a while. I don't know if discussing products not offered by DROP is allowed on here, but please shoot me a message if that's the case if you have a recommendation! Any help is appreciated thank you! Harvee
Is the SMSL Sh8/ Su8 stack worth it. I'm looking to upgrade from my current setup of a focusrite scarlett and a behringer ha400. I have considered the Schiit stack but decided not to due to it being overpriced in Australia ($220 compared to $150 conversion rate without shipping). I've seen good reviews of the SU-8 but i'm not too sure on the sh8. Also I am looking for a remote dac that I can use in my living room with active studio monitors If anyone has any advice that would be great.
