The following Top Reader Voted IEM & Earphone scores are assigned by the readers, (Score) and apply only to all reviews were a slider voting system exists. This list includes both the top 30 custom and universal type monitors.

Please note the list will change dynamically as readers continue to vote. Higher scoring IEMs will automatically replace lower-scoring IEMs. They will also continue to change as we progressively work our way through historical reviews and add a voting system.

These lists are not to be confused with our forthcoming Editorial scoring lists which are the top gear as reviewed and scored by our review team. Those lists will form the basis of our Awards at the end of the year. Once the year is completed the Editorial scores will be deleted and the ‘annual top lists’ will start over again.

    Very respectable ranking. The Elysium is near the top of the list of IEMs I’d love to demo. The Solaris SE is currently my favorite…looking forward to your review of that.

    Reaching out about a suggestion,

    Which do you think could pair better with the Sony IER-Z1R.
    Sony WM-1A or the A&Ultima SP1000M?

    I know that the WM-1A is not compatible for Streaming music as it lacks Wi-fi and Bluetooth service.
    Whereas the A&Ultima SP1000M has both those options and also EQ settings.

    Hope you can help me choose the best DAP. Eagerly awaiting for your reply.

    Thanks.

      There is only a 1Z here in the office and no 1A. The Z1R went back to Sony after the loan period, (a first for Sony SEA with us for any such loan) over 2 years ago. The 1Z and I believe the 1A does have Bluetooth but as you say it does not have any apps service so that means streaming from your phone to your DAP and that’s not terribly useful. If that is your basis then the SP1000M is the more practical choice.
