    Ran into some issues with measuring Shure IEMs. Really hate those thin nozzles, can never proper seat them in my coupler.

    Subjective impressions:
    • UERM has somewhat replaced my ER4PT has the go-to reference. Though tonality and detail is superior, I still think the ER4 has better treble control. The UERM can get a little brittle and sharp at times.
    • Flamenco is insanely clean and easily one of the most detailed IEMs I've ever had the pleasure to listen to. Tonal weight still a little on the thin side, though I guess that's the trade-off for increased detail retrieval.
    • Oriveti's new lineup is good, very good. Basic has excellent bass with decent tonal balance, Primacy makes a great neutral hybrid. At their asking price points, they're easily top in my recommendations list.
    • A2H don't sound too good to me. I mean, there are better universals out there but it's still crazy value for a 220USD dual driver hybrid custom.
    • Nebula One kinda sounds bad next to the splendid heights of the Basic. Uncontrolled bass, smoothed over details and the semi-open design aren't winning me any favours.
    Not much I can say about the 846 and IE800 that hasn't been said before. I like bass so... I like 'em, I guess.

    @La Cenric Thank you for posting the graphs. I am interested in Oriveti Basic. I see that pick on 5K and big drop down to 10K. Does it mean that it lacks sparkle in treble region?

    A little, yes. Basic is relatively darker sounding compared to its bigger Primacy brother.

    W900: warmer, better bass articulation, denser and (IMO) more controlled treble, wider staging and positional ability

    Flamenco: slightly colder, clearer, more perceived details, thinner and sharper notes, upfront vocals
