    1) ion 4
    2) ion 2
    3) ion 2s



    Ion 4

    $499

    “This one is an upgrade of the dual hybrid driver IEMs with 2 additional BAs on each side, making it 4 drivers in total. A huge increase in SPL thus easier to drive, plus the signature is more mainstream, easier to listen to, and much better clarity”

    ion 2

    $199

    “Both of these make use of the Magnetostatic driver coupling with a DD driver all in 1 package. The goal is similar to that of using Electrostatic driver in a hybrid setup: increase resolution.”

    I'm in for at least these because they are affordable to me.

    What is the difference between the 2 and the 2s?

    I couldn’t hear much difference and Soranik didn’t mention any difference. They had minor strengths and weaknesses basically slight tuning differences. I wish I knew about the special tech used when I listened to them. I thought they were BAs. ??

    I have combined the Soranik iem tours into 2 tours with 3 iem’s each. So this now includes the ion 4. A great sounding iem for 499 plus all SBSFers get 20% off and if you sign up for a loaner tour you get 25% off.

    I received all three related to the Soranik Pre-Loaners. After I'm done, these three will be sent to @shotgunshane. After he is done with all the Soranik IEMs, the three IEMs on this loaner will go on the regular loaner schedule.

    On their way to @Azimuth
    Had to contribute an extra little case to put one of the iems in, since things were split up. Put the 4 and one of the 2’s in the hard case from Soranik and out the other 2 in a small soft case.

    Received from @shotgunshane.

    These things are serious. Anyone else that is even remotely interested in the lower priced IEM's should get on this. P1 owners...only 5 minutes in on the ION2 and I am sold!
