If you're looking for a technically capable, highly detailed, tonally correct IEM then the u12t is indeed one of the easiest recs on the market right now. That said, I found the signature to be a little dry and thin overall and, if you're willing to sacrifice a bit of the technical chops, the Andromeda (to me) is a much more satisfying listening experience overall. I often describe the two as the mars and venus IEMs. The u12t, with its detail, resolution and technicalities is quite intellectually stimulating...but it lacks a certain engagement factor and doesn't sweep me off my feet the way the Andromeda does. I recommend both to people a lot depending on what I know of their tastes and preferences.
