First off, I don’t really like portraying IEM performances by ranking them in charts, as any impressions or reviews written by anyone are always influenced by their personal taste – means that it could never, ever be 100% accurate. Despite that, the ranking charts I’ve seen before still felt to be quite subjective and wanted to present a ranking chart that I’d be happy with. Again, nobody could create a truly objective chart, including mine as well.
This chart would be more about reflecting my satisfaction level after considering the price, performance, and worthiness for the cost – means that just because a cheaper model is placed higher than a pricey one doesn’t necessarily mean it’s technically superior. I’ve also tried to rule out my personal preferences as much as possible. Everyone has different thoughts on any products and the same applies to the below charts, so take it with a grain of salt. Besides, I’m looking to adjust scores for some items as this is the earliest version. Will possibly add short impressions or comments for each item in the future.
Again, this is my satisfaction chart, NOT just sonic performance.
