Re: $1,000 in-ear headphones? Have I lost my mind....
I`m glad you finally found some phones that you enjoy. Especially after the issues you have had prior with the E4s. It seems if you make this kind of investment, it makes sense to get the ear molds. For both quality and ultimately comfort.
Now, that you have had them for a minute, can you compare whether the sound quality is better through in ear phones, or the more conventional headphones placed on or over the ear headphones? I`ve always found that the conventional type where better. But, I`ve never demoed anything as good as your new phones.
