Maybe unit deviation but the one I auditioned has a peak at 14khz. Most people would only consider that as more air or more extension. Ananda doesn't have that issue at all.Wut? Arya is loved by many, it may not be your type, but it is safe to say it is pretty good.
true.Filters on Etys definitely don't need to be replaced every few months. They can last a year or years. The stock size S tri-flange works perfectly for me. The ER4SR is the best I've ever heard. You need 2-3 weeks for your brain to adjust because most people are used to boosted bass.
What I can relate is the 0). And it's not that bad with foam tip. Much easier than tri/biflange tips. The rest, they don't necessarily reflect my experience.
I have not changed filter once and it's still very good no blockage or gunk. Cable is alright if you use the clip.
That really depends on what you want. I like dt200 and er4se very much, even more so with Ananda overall. If you want punchy and wide bass that renders the atmosphere dt200 is a no brainer(still accurate in the mid to high and remember to use foam tips). If you want something clean, deep, fast, clear, forward er2se is the best bet(stock foam tips are great). Starfield has more bass and a bit dark it's not as competitive really but still better than majority of offerings on the market. Ananda is almost perfect in every way. It's a little bit less forward in the vocal and sounds a little bit soft(not an issue). But it's miles better than many things including focal clear.
