1 week ago y'all said KZ ZSN is the current meme. Now its T2 fucking hell.
>>
>>70957813
T2 has been the meme for a year now
>>
>>70957813
ZSN is the fun meme, while T2 is the balanced meme.
>>
>>70957961
what’s the /actually sounds good & comfortable to wear/ meme?
>>
>>70957973
It's pretty subjective anon.
ZSNs hang on to your ears a lot more, and are lighter that the bulky T2s, but T2s sounds better (which is again subjective).
Use the template anon.

1. True earbud (not IEM)
2. As flat as possible
3. Good, accurate treble. Absolutely no obnoxious +9db 4-9k ish spike above the bass/mids like some shit has but it can’t be too recessed either.
4. Less than 30ish USD preferably.

Does it exist? I love my VE Monk Plus for music but they’re too muffled/boomy to track footsteps in games. My KZ ATE S work great in games, I just want something like them that doesn’t make my ears itchy after 5 mins.

For comparison: FR of monk pros: https://audiobudget.com/product/VE/MonkPlus

The fuck is that graph. This is exactly why we don't trust retard slav boomer. Also how are monks boomy. They are bass light and have some pretty good mids/highs for the price.
>>
I thought fancy cables were 100% placebo but I can definitely tell a difference between the stock cable for my CCA C16 and this aftermarket cable from AliExpress. This silver plated cable makes them much brighter, which I don’t like. IMO the bass is the weakest part of the C16, like almost every other balanced armature IEM.
>>
>>70958745
stock KZ/CCA cables are shit. What you're hearing is a difference in cable impedance. If you get a higher end cable you'll hear no difference.

>>70958445
It’s really hard to graph earbuds unless you have one of those $10-20k head simulators.

>>70958794
Yeah the graph I posted is by Inner Fidelity who has a rig I trust. Idk why Igor even put a graph because 1) he doesn't calibrate his rig and 2) he doesn't have a good rig. Compare his graphs to someone like Crin's and you'll see.

Picked up the QS1 for £16 from a UK eBay seller so not much waiting, as opposed to like £27 for the airdots which don't get much better reviews.

Okay anons, I'm looking for something very specific.

Since I was a kid I fell in love with Koss Porta Pro/KSC75. I've had multiple pairs and despite having 200$+ headphones I still use the Koss for vast majority of time.

What I'm looking for is an earbud which would have similar characteristic. So far I tried:
- monks/monk lite included
- vido

Vidos, especially recabled, have been my daily driver for the past 1.5 years now but it's not as good as Koss.
Any recommendation?
>>
So I got ibasso 220 today and I'm not sure I'll be keeping it, in the long run (gotta try those changeable amps first) Sony wm1a was warmer and more energetica and musical, but I'm wondering if they are going to release a new model this year.

The dap is good! Extremely technical, very interesting to listen. I'm downloading more and more albums to listen, it's a joy, like you're just uncovering the music. Would recommend if anyone's looking for higher end powerful player that does streaming.
>>
>>70959997
Bought some spinfits in medium, which is 12 mm width. I already have one pair and they fit perfect in medium, but I want to get some jvc spiral dots as well. Should I get m or ml, I find myself alternating between the 12mm medium foam tips and 13mm large foam tips often.
>>
>>70961870
And how are they? Can you give me a quickrundown of how they sound?
>>
>>70964087
TRN IM1 PRO is designed for live perf. If you can wait a bit an improved version with shockproof shells and drivers along with refined sound is coming out soon.
>>
Are the Xiaomi Mi Noise Cancelling IEMs the best IEMs in term of sound quality/price? How do they compare to some T2/T3 for example?
>>
>>70965323
absolutely inferior. Its good for cheap ANC though.
>>
>>70965339
Then why are they rated with such high scores on thephonegraph.net and yet they rate those T2/T3 in a lower rating?
>>
>>70965355
thephonograph is a shitty pleb consumer oriented site. Their graphs are shit and their reviews mediocre.
>>
>>70965372
Thanks for the info. Where can I find better reviews tho?
>>
Does it really matter what IEMs you're getting when you're looking for a pair of sub $20 IEMs as long as they come from a reputable brand? I've been looking at the Sony MDR EX110, but are there any other pairs I should be looking at?

There's no point for me to order from China because my country has started to add a bunch of taxes and VAT and shit to packages that are being sent from China, so I'd have to pay more in fees than what the actual IEMs cost. I'd also prefer to buy from physical stores to not have to pay shipping, and there's not a lot of options for me around here.

I don't really care about sound quality because I'll mainly be using them to listen to podcasts and stuff while working out.
>>
>>70964833
Are those the kz zsn? How those sound?
>>
>>70965355
that site gives off shill vibes worse than audiokosher
>>
>>70964833
as a wildcard i suggest the Headroom MS16. they're 'open back' earbuds but the design actually works and they sound great imo
>>
>>70965445
I found soundphile reviews to be a consistent reviewer.
>>
>>70965497
I can compare them to the only other cIEM I have which is ZST.

In comparison ZSNs:
- Are considerably less muddy than ZSTs. This is due to a very noticeable treble
- Are a bit too sharp on the highs, I have had to equalise it a bit down as vocals. While soprans ar mostly fine anything above is way, way to highlighted
- have better midbass, but lower bass than ZSTs which works out for me with my depressing-ass music but may be a killer to pure electornic

Additional non-sound quality related:
- ZSNs fit better in my ears despite having the same foams. They are more comfy to use
- ZSNs are easier to drive, easier for my smartphone

Generally I'd give 2x ZSTs over 1 pair of ZSN :)

>>70965544
Thanks! I will try them out, I wasn't aware there are earbuds with open back :O
>>
>>70965689

So I tried using an equalizer in my phone(viper) and even before cutting or lowering anything, the sound is kinda dampened or lowered all over. Tried raising the volume a bit and it solved it(for me, at least). Should it be like this? If so, was it correct for me to raise the volume or is there another thing I should look at here?

Most of us run our T2 with bluetack mod in the tiny front port to dramatically fatten the bass up. Pretty much required for modern bass music.

I tried buying and soundmagic E10's, they where ok, but not as good as the pl11's despite being more expensive
>>
>>70963090
>e10s fag here

Can confirm. I've tugged on em, got em stuck on door handles, stepped on them, banged em on a table, spilled water on the mic a bit like the mouth breathing idiot I am and they're still perfectly fine after 4 years. Only thing that died was the fucking zipper on the shitty case they came in. Kinda dreading the day they finally give out, if they do.
>>
>>70967798
>do those support aptx
if you mean the T2's with a cable, it depends on the cable. i think i've seen one that does.
the mifo o5 doesn't support aptx but they do some good for the price, though i haven't tested them for any audio delay yet as i only listen to music

I once accidentally left my pair of E10s in my jeans pocket when I washed them, only realized it after the washer's on for maybe 10 minutes or so.

Stopped the washer, fished them out and popped them into a box of uncooked rice for a week to dry them out.
They still worked fine, and looked cleaner to boot.
>>
>>70972717
Simple. You just need to insert the deep enough and have tips that actually fit. The tip should make a perfect seal in your canal.

i'm looking for some chi-fi/typical iems that are as comfortable as possible
i like my t2's but after 3-4 hours or so they start hurting my ears
obviously, comfort is subjective but i'd imagine there's something that most would regard as comfortable
audio quality isn't that important, just something good enough and not apple earpods quality
i have to travel a lot so i'd just use them on long flights for drowning out the noise, maybe sleeping but that would be an added bonus
sub 150$ preferred but willing to go up to 200$ if it's great value

>>
>>70980567
it's just about to try which of them fits best. but there is a difference between foam and silicone. So you have to order some in small, middle and large.
I have done the same and i will receive mine in the next two weeks i hope.
I ordered the KZ- ZS6 and ordered additional T400 foam tips in S and M because L did never fit my ears when trying silicone ones while Small were too small. But i took the risk and ordered a batch of Smalls anyway. Just to make sure i have them when i need them.
>>
>>70980645
Thank, I believe than I'm going to do the same. Basically order one of each and just try them. Also, how durable are these things? How often do you guys replace them?

You know what? Fuck it, I'm just going to ask even though it might make me sound like a brainlet.
I've never used IEMs before. I've got a set of speakers that I love (although my amplifier has broke so I haven't been able to use them in 2 years because I'm a stingy bastard who doesn't want to replace the amp, the speakers are Klipsch RB61 II's) and a pair of headphones which I adore too (Fidelio X2s).
I rarely go out, I don't even own a fucking phone ffs, but when I do go out I always wish I could listen to music on fucking something, anything, then when I get in I forget about it, rinse repeat every time.
Well now I want to fix this issue once and for all, I wanna get a decent set of IEMs and a decent music player too. I've briefly (and make no mistake I do mean 'briefly') read through these threads and in all honesty a lot of the stuff recommended here is pretty cheap as far as the IEM's themselves are concerned, roughly hovering around the £40-70 range, this is strange because if you go in the headphones or speakers thread people are basically ONLY talking about things that are upwards of £150 from what I've seen. Do IEMs tend to hit that sweet spot earlier on or something? I mean don't get me wrong I'd actually be quite happy to hear that they do but maybe I've just came here at a weird time but that's what it seems like to me.

Anyway though, I'm gonna be pretty weird and difficult here. Let's pretend I have like £250 to spend on these, but let's also assume that I really don't want to spend anywhere near £250 if at all possible, what would you recommend to me for an IEM + music player combo?
If I could pick something up for significantly cheaper that will sound mostly as good as something that is leagues more expensive I'd really prefer for you to give me the cheaper option, even if it's SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper than the budget I've gave because in all honesty I don't want to be spending that amount but I wil if there is a clear 100% boost in sound quality.
>>
>>70981082
From what i heard they last some month of daily use and for some less than that.
But you can clean them with soap and let them dry. I will do so with mine.
I have memory foam ear protection plugs for the industry, which have had since over a year now and they are still fine. I clean them with soap and hand war water and let them dry some hours.
I expect the foam tips work the same way.

But i will post in iemg General when i have practically experienced what i have planned.
You know, theory is one thing, practically another one.

I used the hell out a zune for the past few years but I switched to spotify premium on my galaxy S9. I kind of miss using something as a dedicated music player, but is there even a point to a dap if I don't have any issues with noise or loudness when using my IEMs directly from the phone?
>>
>>70982087
depends on the source files.
A 320 kbps mp3 file, will most likely just sound slightly better than ión a normal smartphone. But if you start using flac or DSD's they might give you a real lift in sound quality compared to a smartphone.
>>
>>70982122
Most of my downloaded library was 320 since zune didn't support FLAC. So I guess I'll keep using my phone/spotify for convenience. Thanks.
>>
>>70982122
>>70982179
some DAPs can make even shit sources sound decent, and 320/higher sources sound great
>>
>>70982640
I know, but the jump in quality on a 320 kbps mp3 on a DAP coming from a smartphone isn't as huge as if you would do it with a dsd file.
>>
>>70982656
>coming from a smartphone
i disagree, but it's subjective at that bitrate
>>
>>70982713
320 kbps mp3 is already good enough to be very hard to tell if its a wav, flac or mp3, but the only difference from a DAP and normal smartphone is the DAC chip rendering the music at a much better quality and additional to that, the headphone amp built in may be of a much higher quality than the smartphone counterpart.
So yes, there will be an uplift, but not that much as you would have with a DSD file. I have experienced it myself.
There is a huge difference when using DSD on a smartphone or a DAP
>>
>>70982836
i agree, even flacs at 24/96 or higher sound better than 320kbps mp3
i'm still looking for dsd made from sources that dont sound full of pops and clicks from vinyl tho
the one dsd64 from sacd source i heard was pretty damn good, but i cant find more of those
>>
>>70982885
it is hard to find real high res sourced files.
Most of them are rendered from CD, and then you could either take flac, wav or mp3 at 320 kbps.
Real DSD needs sources with higher resolution to realy make you benefit. SACD is the right direction, though not the end of the flag pole.

I’d recommend stock tips unless you have a reason you don’t want to use them. In my experience, SpinFits ruined the imaging on my Andromedas. Ostry OS100 tips are useful if you want to reduce the mid-treble for whatever reason; treble extension begins to suffer at OS200 and up.
>>
>>70983434
T3 wasn't as great as the T2. Price to performance and I just liked the tonality of it more. There's other things out there in the $100 range. If you want neutrality go for GR07 or E2k. T3 had more bass but the treble was a bit sibilant at times. The T2s mids and highs were pretty nice IMO. I EQ mine to Oratorys U sound and I like it. T2 Pro is just the T2 with elevated treble. If you want a more bass without the EQ and are fine with the 10k spike go T3 but the T2 is a better all rounder in my opinion.
>>
>Gain Control

High gain on an amp makes headphones louder but generates more hiss and possibly more distortion. Use low gain unless it isn’t loud enough

This. I think you mean "Timbre" but thats why i love my T2... its a Dual Dynamic Driver and just the way they are crossover give mids / highs have such a neutral timbre. BA (balanced armature) definitely have a more metalic sound. The T3 has a BA. and is often twice the price. Thats why i Rec the T2 so much.
>>
>>70976228
>He's talking about the QT5 your retarded emu

i was talking about the QT5 you fucking goomba. All i said was my QT2 is sounds perfect and yet the QT3 with the extra BA suffers from KZ6 levels of treble ear rape.... so who knows how the QT5 will perform. I didnt even know it existed and there are no reviews.

Thanks! Also, it's there any good brand from AliExpress of foam tips? Every brand seems to be similar to each other. For example I'm now watching T400 of some TRN brand, but early some guy in this same thread recommend another brand "anjuri" or something like that.

they have (as you can see at the picture) a silicone rubber surface on the inner bore. They shall sit a lot better than foam only tips.

Guys I've had a debacle with usb c to 3.5 adapters, and I've paid the price getting cheap adapters with reversed audio channels. I'm considering just cutting my losses and getting a portable amp/dac and use that with my zsns, Monks, faaeal, and tin t2s. Thinking about the fiio k1 and a micro usb to c adapter.

Worth it?
>>
>>70990476
I could just bite the bullet and use my ruizu x02 for all plugged in music needs. Only thing I have to listen to with my phone are audiobooks and podcasts and swapped audio channels with those are no big deal
>>
>>70990476
Buy the Apple adapter. Their dongles measure well, have an output impedance below 1 ohm, and you can send them in for a warranty replacement if there's a defect.
>>
>>70990566
Yeah I was considering that. Either that or the Google pixel adapter. I like to have a supply of spares and I already have 3 ugreen ones on the way that are hopefully good but buying just one can't be too bad.

I hear that on Android the output is pretty low compared to the Google adapter. Moto z3 here

>>70990615
Unless you're driving a Hifiman or like the idea of giving yourself tinnitus, having a lower output impedance and noise floor are more important than raw volume output.

Just 1 mW of power into a 16 ohm load is enough to drive the T2 to 104 dB. The ZSN needs 1 mW of power into a 25 ohm load to be driven to 104 dB.
>>
>>70990718
What about the sennheiser 558s, I use those occasionally as well.
>>
>>70990750

Not much harder. According to InnerFidelity, it'll take 2.6 mW into 61 ohms (or around 5 mW into 32 ohms) to drive them to 103 dB.

I have just received my KZ ZS-6 that i ordered on aliexpress 13 days ago and have to say that they sound much better than my Senneheiser CX 3.00

The ZS6 sound a bit v-shaped and sibilant, but give an overall better and more powerful sound stage compared to my Senneheisers.

I also ordered two sets of 24 pcs foam tips in M and S for a better fit and to deal with the sibilance. But they have yet not arrived.

The overall built quality of the ZS6 is amazing. CNC machined aluminium.

I ordered them in green.
>>
>>70991570
Ostry OS100 silicone tips also tame the mid-treble on the ZS6 without being disposable. Also, having listened to both the ZS6 and the Andromeda, I can say that the KZ has a wider soundstage, albeit accompanied by a plasticky timbre and smoothed-out detail.
>>
>>70991751
Yea, the ZS-6 may not be perfect, but for the 21 eurocuckmoney i paid for them, they are pretty perfect and totally ripping apart my 49 fucking eurocuckmoney expensive Sennheisers.
I guess that the Andromedas may sound a lot better, but the price gap is also a huge one. So all in general, the ZS-6 are a good bang for the buck.
Next on the table are some T2's and maybe some other ones also i wanna experiment with.

I will search for the Ostry OS100 Silicon tips and put them on my "to order" list.

Really, Sennheiser hast to put a warm jacket on when they continue asking the prices they do for their comparably inferior CX 3.00.
But i guess their survival is secure due to not many people knowing about the chink shit IEM's being much better at a lower price.
Same goes for AKG i guess which when i recall this right, were in the same class as my Sennheisers are both price- and soundwise.

Have yet not tested my mini displayport to DVI-D adaptor. Wanna use my second screen that otherwise would rot away on my attic :-D
Going trough all my high fidelity songs right now to better know the new IEM's.

Really thinking about it, I'm gonna bite the bullet and buy either the KZ ZS10 Pro or the T2's in the next 2 hours unless somebody can convince me otherwise, both seem good, the KZ ZS10 Pro is cheaper, not by much, but it it is cheaper.

That's 1 vote for the ZS10 pros anyway, anybody else wanna throw their opinion in to help me out?
>>
>>70993531
T2 is balanced but lacks in bass and with the port mod it kind of gets too boomy.
Honestly T2 is worth it when on sale for $30 on ali, but the Z10 pro is cheaper than the T2 on amazon and has prime shipping. The only thing is you may want to get a backup cable too (yinyoo ones are good) because the KZ stock cables vary in quallity. Z10 pro is more fun and not in a bad way either.

T3 it's better than those KZ. I'm not giving you more info tho, just look for it. Both are good choice tbqh, but I prefer the T3.

So I'm a bass player, but I also run the sound board at events that I don't play for, as well as do A/V editing for podcasts and othor side projects, so I'd like something where I can be somewhat accurate to the source but can also use on stage, and also will be able to listen to music/game/etc for 12 hours a day.

>Past IEMs
KZ ZSN, Shure SE-215, Skullcandy Titans (I think), Klipsch K6i, assorted Chinese IEMs that I don't recall

Currently looking for CIEMs not universals for a better fit/seal and ultimately a better bass response, the added isolation is certainly a boon for stage use. I'd like something that (to the best of my ability) I won't decide I need an upgrade from anytime soon though I know it's hard to resist new gear and probably will at some point. Thanks!

Lol. Honest review? I didn't even use it for 20 minutes, I just put it in the box again.
The older meme was that xiaomi piston youth and it's not even good compared to in-ear earphones back in 2011. Heck even the free nokia headsets from dumb phones were shitton better.

>KZ ZSN:
>cable looks like a mess
aesthetic wise, it's not a problem. sure hope it's oxygen-free
>eartips smell like a good way to have cancer
bet it's not even completely silicone. rule 1 is if it's not smokey white transparent it's likely cancerous rubber that might be recycled tire no one would know.
it's like they're not even trying. upper-tier brands like to use this cheap shenzen rubber probably tinted with lead paint.
>impaired channels despite non-microphone cables
this is what annoys me the most even in the upper-tier brands that's all talk. though it's not noticeable for the average populace, if you've used perfectly balanced drivers for years you'll know immediately.
>increasing volume changes the overall frequency response
yeah I'm not hearing the 18k and above properly. probably weird 16k cutoff too. it's like I'm listening to "Unique" equalizer from a sony PSP.
if you put the volume to 60% and higher you'll notice the BA's (balanced armature's) volume gets extremely high and treble overpowers everything and it's not good as there was a cutoff. perfect if you can no longer hear such frequencies due to worn hair cells but to me it's so unbearably loud and awkward treble (sounds much like unique eq from psp).

>these youtube and shop reviews/hype
next I'll hear is "muh sibilance" when the only thing that matters is if it has the EQUAL frequency response much like having a screen display monitor that's perfectly color calibrated. You know that the frequency response is good when you can listen with it for straight 10 hours without feeling any kind of strain.

Hate to sound lazy, but I am.
Been wearing my massdrop K7xx's for however long that's been, sick of replacing my cheap $10-15(NZD) literally-who IEMs that I use on the way to work while riding (20krpm engines are noisy, who knew), but they end up either going lazy on one channel or I just can't put up with the shrieking midrange.

Something relatively hardy and light on the mids. This is honestly my first dip into IEMs and since I last bought headphones, these things seem to have gotten serious and not $300 for a decent pair anymore.

Flange tip or foam? I've tried the big yellow foam tips and they completely blocked out sound, better than the flange. But they get nasty pretty quick compared to flange, so it gets expensive. Also adds a subtle boost to lows in the foam tips.

Think your $1000 IEMs have "special magic" drivers built by a master craftsman under a microscope just for you?

As far as the criticism of using cheaper parts (and different models of IEMs that use the same parts).... I'd hate to burst your bubbles lol, but many of the IEM drivers (particularly balanced armatures) are the same. Yes, thats right... think about it... there are only so many factories that can produce such a hard to make component. The same drivers get re-branded all the time.


But understand, its a somewhat well kept secret that even $1000 "premium brand" IEMs use drivers from "chi-Fi" brands & models. There is nothing wrong with this.... even the cheaper drivers are still really freaking good. Its all the other factors I named that make a much bigger difference.


The main reason for this is because balanced armatures are very hard to make and require unique expertise, and factory tooling to accomplish production. Most of these factories are in china. There are different grades made, but generally you can only make them so good. If you study how they are designed, you can see how there is very little room for differences. They have to be made just a certain way for them to work. There is not nearly as much room for experimentation as there is with dynamic drivers. For the most part the drivers are all the same, and what separates the IEMs are a builders competency to take these drivers and apply them.


Because there are tons of "chi-fi" IEMs that sound very similar to far more expensive boutique brands. I'm not saying "don't buy expensive ones, because they are a rip off". That is not my point. Just don't be surprised if every now and again you find a $40 IEM that sounds just like your $1000 dollar.

Lads, I'm seething, I've got a headache, I keep saying I'm going to buy a pair but my indecisiveness is killing me on this. It really is, it's fucking destroying me and I can't take it. This general is too slow, I'm used to getting a shitload of answers to help me decide better but here I get like 1-2 and I can't tell if those replies are from people who have tried enough quality audio equipment to know what is good sounding or not.
It's still LITERALLY between the T2, T3 and KZ-ZS10 Pros.
I'm only going to order from Amazon, I'm not in any way patient, I need the shit I order almost immediately and with Amazon I can get any of these tomorrow, so bare that in mind. Here are the prices.

T2 - £42
T3 - £60
KZ ZS10 Pro - £46 with no mic (but in a fucking colour I don't want), and £47 WITH a mic in the colour I do want, they have no 'no mic' variants available (The mic one causes issues with the sound or something, no? I coulda swore I've heard something negative about mic versions of these things).

I'll give you the fucking music I'm into. Electronic sounding shit, Ambient, Trance, Psy Trance, music with high energy in general, music with Pianos and Violins as the star, maybe some drums too. I'm not that into vocal tracks but I'm a greedy cunt and I don't want to sacrifice good vocals either.

Which should I get, just fucking do me a favour and put all eyes on me for just a second so I can free myself from this fucking headache and buy one, once I've bought it it's done, I rarely ever send anything back, I have the 3 tabs open in front of me, I don't want to be memed into buying something that's shit.
I'm having a harder time picking out a fucking £40-£60 IEMs than my £240 headphones for fuck sake.

JUST GIVE ME THIS ONE THING YOU FUCKS, I'M BUYING YOUR CHINK SHIT ALREADY, HELP ME PICK WHICH CHINK SHIT IS THE BEST.
FUCK.

>>
>>71009818
MDR 7506 isn't even "flat", it's got some treble peaks to account for the fact that they're meant for picking out defects in a mix (hence "STUDIO MONITOR")
If that's what you like you'd probably like more treble oriented IEMs desu. The Tin T3 would be a good match.

surprise arrival today of the yinyoo 16 core silver plated balanced cable for my kanas pros:
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32918220523.html

someone asked for a mini review
>stock cable is slightly longer (3-5in maybe?)
>yinyoo has colored rings at the plugs (red/blue), and little dots on one side of the pins that turned out has to be pointed away from the tips
>i probably have them plugged in on the wrong ear in pic, i switched to the other side and they sound perfect now

as far as sound vs stock cable, they seem a lot fuller to me, could be placebo as some have said, but particularly the bass sounds a bit stronger (not overwhelming given kanas pros, but more presence), and overall the sounds are a bit louder which i assume is expected with balanced cables.
noticeable increase in richness of sounds on anything from flac 16/44 and higher, and i assume also in mp3s, as compared to stock cable. it's like a mini upgrade of the KP sound, with a slight increase in bass. currently using the stock soundmagic e10 tips which worked well for me (added a bit more bass to the stock KP tips). i'll have to test out with other tips and see how it changes the sound then.
it was a bit confusing figuring out left/right (thank hiby for adding a balance sound outpout option), but once i had the phones on their proper side, it's working fine. i have to add that only the right side worked at first, but i pushed the plug deeper into the balanced input port and it works
worth the $20? to me it was. also the black color is sexy as hell compared to the pinkish/goldish stock cable, and it's more flexible and feels softer.
9/10 will probably get a spare soon
>>
>>70965086
Pretty good, I'm not good at describing sound but I find their sound more enjoyable but similar to my Anker Soundbuds Slim that I also have.

From what I can tell there isn't too much bass or too little like I have experienced in the past with earphones, quite balanced.

Look at "soundpeats truefree" reviews on Amazon, they are just a rebranded version of these for twice the price, but good to get an idea of the sound from the reviews.

so i tried the KP stock tips (which are more neutral compared to the soundmagic stock tips) and i got to tell you lads, this combo of dap+cable+iems+tips is perfection - neutral with that KP midbass and bass extensions which just make it delicious
it's listening to the KP unleashed

Balanced, a little bit of bass is OK

One thing I definitely need are the inline mic and volume controls. I've been spoiled by the IEMs that came with the samshit phone, other than that, I'm mostly fine with anything else. Most of the stuff I've checked only include the mic control, but no volume ones.

>>71009596
Pretty good once you EQ out that 1.5k hump. Bass is nice and full and has good speed. If you're a bass head put a 3db shelf at 400 and they thump. Mids are wonky at times with vocals sounding hazy but instrumets especially brass and string ones sound very full. Treble is weird at times but never really sibilant. High hats sound very clean and detailed but can sound a bit hazy.

What the fuck are you talking about nigger.
We know how much BAs cost since you can buy knowles pretty easily. While a significant margin of the cost comes from the drivers it's mostly the fancy resin enclosures and wacky dampening techniques and crossovers. Just look at the fearless ACME-8 With it's funky lattice and tell me it wouldn't be extremely hard to make.
>>
>>71006384
T3 Is better suited for the music you listen to. It also has better build quality than the AS10 and T2.
>>71008809
There's no way this isn't smoothed but you could tame that treble easily by sticking a BA dampner in the nozzle.

You niggers took too long to reply. I ordered the T2's last night and the delivery guy is LITERALLY 4 stops away from me now.

I read a shit ton of extra reviews and the consensus seems to be that people either think the T3's are the same as the T2's with some very minor differences (which make it more of a sidegrade than an upgrade) OR they think the T3 is just an ever so slightly better T2 in most ways.

Either way, my justification for buying these is they're £20 cheaper, I have a quality audio setup for at home anyway and I just want a decent enough pair of IEMs for when I go out, and I've never used IEMs before to be honest.

So all that said, I hope these are decent, if the T3s were truly a good deal better I'd have gone for them straight away, but what's done is done now. I'll let you guys know what I think of this shit later anyway
