thoughts on t2 vs t3?
are thé fender ones any good?
>>71386448no one says final e2k :(
>>71392009Absolutely not.Avoid : -meme music brands aka fender Marshall and the like.-In ears from brands specialized in headphones aka Sennheiser beyerdynamic etc
>>71391982T3 are really good but not worth the price difference if u can find T2 for $30
>>71388090cheap mmcx connectors are really bad (early models of the Tin T2 come to mind, the pin just fuckin broke in half on the inside)higher quality MMCX is really sturdy though
Is it worth sidegrading to the Revonext QT2S/QT5?I have Yinyoo V2 atm

>>71385034Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon It's that pic.
>>71393158They're a joy to listen to for long periods of time, the T2 is fatiguing for me (I'm very very treble sensitive) and being able to replace the cable is a big plus for me over the E2000. I have no context for the E2000 or how it sounds, but I don't really feel the need to buy another IEM. It definitely made a dent in my wallet but I had been falling for the Chi-Fi meme and buying cheap IEMs that "punch above their weight" for awhile and ended up spending more than I spent on the E4000 by the end of it, and now that temptation is gone (at least for me.)
>>71392528Notre nearly as much value. Sound is only marginally better and build quality is shit in comparison.
>>71393367I know it's probably worth it but I'm a poorfag and I can't justify to myself spending that much, I'll probably end up getting the e2000 though
>>71393393I would actually recommend the Moondrop Crescent ($30 on aliexpress) or Zero Audio Carbo Tenore ($40 on amazon) over the E2000, the E4000 is lauded because it fixes some major issues that the E2000 has (some distortion and muffling), and by that virtue is worth the premium over the E2000. But the two I recommended above are great if you don't care about replaceable cable (and wear them over-ear if microphonics is an issue.)

>>71397924Oh no ?
>>71397924Did research before I bought them and everyone says they are good. Troll harder.
Hi, I recently ordered a pair of T2's aftera recommendation from a friend and great reviews online.What would be a good portable dac that Icould use for my phone and possibly for my laptop/desktop? My budget is around50-60 EUR, but I could raise the budget if necessary.
So around a couple of months ago, I purchased some tin t2 audios. They were great at first, but then the right side became quieter so I thought it was the cable that was broken. I recently purchased a new cable and tried them again, but now both sides are even quieter than before, I can't even hear them at max volume on my device. I cleaned the earwax off of them and everything so what's wrong?Pasted from /hpg/
>>71398379>>71398387t2 is overhypedit's cheap crap
>>71398438I just need this crap fixed man.(What iems do you reccomend then? And no, while they dont have to be neutral and boring, dont post bassfag iems)
>>71398476i went from soundmagic e10 -> e80 -> einsear en120 -> kanas prosthey all claimed to be "neutral" but other than the sound improving with price, only the kanas (and the e80 to a certain extent) could really be called "neutral" in the sense meant by /iemg/

>>71398505How were the earnines? Did they do pretty good? Would you reccomend them for causal listening for all sorts of genres? (I tend to buy cheaper headphones and iems with a neutral response so I can listen to multiple genres. Expensive stuff for genre specific music) Also, how would you compare Japfi in general to chinkfi? I rarely have ever used iems from nips and all of them couldn't compare to chinkshit.
>>71398571they're alright, better sound quality than the e10s, comparable to the e80svery slight eq'ing does wonders for themi only discovered chinkfi this year, and the kanas have been my current holy grail in terms of sound

>>71398567Look into some KZs. For 30 dollaroos and under, KZs are some of the best to get. However, there are so many of them, so do your research carefully.For a set that is heavier on the bass, try KZ ZS3 or the ATE's (Personally find the ZS3s to be better)For a set that you just get at Walmart or the store, just get the Sony MDR-XB50AP/R Extra Bass Earbud Headset. Shittier than KZs but best you can get when you need to get some fast.
>>71398379your phones dac is fine for t2s. invest in a dac/dap when you have more expensive iems

FLAT IEMS UNDER 50 EUR
I bought some shure SE215 but the lows are really muddy sounding. I compared to an old pair of soundmagic ec10 and AKG k551 and both sounded much clearer. I am using the silicone tips but I tired different foams, trip flange, etc and they seemed worse. Is there anything else I can try? or is this expected from the shure se215 iem?

>>71404511Thank you anon, would the Yinyoo V2 meme be a good middle ground?2 pin is prefered over MMCX.
Daily reminder than most normal people would prefer a v shape signature like the KZ ZS10 to the meme tin audio.
>>71404593Yes it's a good alternative.>>71404651You are on 4chan. People aren't normal here. ZS10 is shit btw.
>>71404406>Most of them are so huge I can't lie down on my side with them in my ear.Try something that fits into your concha. But, I don't like the trend of large earpieces either.>If I wanted to sit up 24/7 wouldn't I just buy better, larger proper cans?These are still far more portable with potentially much better sound occlusion.I do not understand the word "proper". Headphones have numerous issues of acoustics in their own right.>>71402225>but the lows are really muddy soundingThat's a bit vague.I would presume that you mean the upper bass, which I think is excessive on SE215.Tips won't affect the upper bass much once you have a solid fit. Leakage affects low bass most strongly, while tip material and shape affects treble more.>>71398674>>71399148Harman's target is supposed to be the most preferred response. It was also reported as more tonally neutral than other IEMs and targets under consideration by the subjects, but that wasn't the objective.
When is the sale so I can blow all my fat loads on earmemes?

>>71405446Nah they are good.
>>71405446>Did I fuck up?Dunno, i just ordered them as well, along with the yinyoo v2 and tin t2. Tell you in a few weeks.
>>71404651Normal people know nothing about audio besides bass.
>>71396809just so you know, bluetooth adapters for IEMs are generally pretty shit, and while I don't have experience with that TRN one in particular, I'm not sure you'll have the best experience.t. use kanas pro IEMs with a FiiO BTR3 after trying and hating many bluetooth conversion cables (there's still a wire with the BTR3 but I think you have to pair each of those TRN ones at a time and they just look bulky to me.)good luck though
>>71396809>>71398264>>71398341ooftrue wireless is a memeyou got a nice set of IEMs and you're just gonna ruin em like that?keep the IEMs for home use or something and get a pair of dudios from amazon ($30 true wireless that sound acceptable)i have a pair that i use exclusively for working out because i'd never put my expensive IEMs on some chink BT cable.

Looking for some decent sounding earphones for about 30 euro's, though I'm willing to go up to 40 if I have to.It's a present for my sister as her old earphones broke, she wanted a pair of earphones with a microphone and durable build quality.I also know she hates foam tips and isn't going to use a equalizer.The problem is that I can't think of any earphones that fit that description for this price.I was thinking of tin audio T2's since I use them myself, but she didn't like the sound too much without an eq and it doesn't come with a stock microphone cable.Every KZ I've used was shit, Yinyoo seems about the same, I don't trust the Einsear T2 build quality and the Moondrop Crescents don't have a replaceable cable.Any ideas, or should I just buy a T2?
>>71408174>>71408111Just saw that the pcb is broken. You'll have to solder litz wire to the traces to connect it back to a connector. ali sells these too.
>>71408187ZSN is a hit with the ladies. They think it looks slick. My sister keeps asking me for a pair and she likes the ES4 I leant her. They sound very similar and its very fun sounding.
>>71408229I have a ZSN too but the treble is litterally worse than on my T2...Though I guess that is an option
>no cord longer than 4 feet with more than 8 cores that's not pinkDark day indeed
Someones selling cable-less Andromedas (reportedly brand new) for $540 usd around here, good deal right?
>>71408253Of course its worse. T2 is a much better IEM.Yinyoo V2 is a more fun T2 and was quite hyped before the t3 came out.
>>71408379Yes very. Couple that with a silver coated cable from yinyoo for the discount litz and you'll be set for lyfe.
>>71408390Nice, he sold 2 pairs and it was gone within 2 hours, I'll be keeping my eyes on it.

Thoughts on Penon BS1 Official? Or in buds in general? Looking for something mid-centric and thick sounding no Monks for me unfortunately. Looking for something more comfortable than iems, I get irritated with the ear-rape.
>>71406744>>71406782>>71407043Thanks for your input. Will the bluetooth adapters actually damage the IEM's? Or they will just not sound as good? I only need them for the gym (lifting, not cardio) and when im out walking. The reason is because I've been through 3 usb-c to headphone jack adapters that get busted within a month. I think the usb port is just over used. This is what I get for getting a phone without a headphone jack.I will just use my laptop to listen to music when im home.
>>71408463Buds are popoo and only a few pairs have been confirmed to be good. The only one thats fairly mid centric and not shit that comes to mind is the yinyoo bk2. Maybe rose masya. Penon is a boutique brand that should be avoided by anyone but the most dedicated of hobbyists.What were your previous Iems ? Maybe you just bought uncomfy in ears or the shape was not for you.
>>71408549No they wont. they just wont sound as good. For the record : MMCX is not as resilient as most connectors. Try to avoid constantly switching adapters and cables.
>>71408549They may just not sound quite as good as when plugged into a phone or DAP is all. And if you're working out that's kind of expensive for something you may lose and that may have pairing issues (at least on the TRN bluetooth adapter's part)I know that the E4000s are great for listening but I'm not sure about working out with them. Since I have a pair though, if you have a good experience then I may pick up the TRN adapter.
>>71408380What I meant was that the T2 is already too treble heavy for many tastes, but the ZSN, or at least my one, has sibilant and piercing highs.I honestly couldn't listen to it without an eq or foam tips, while it is doable with the T2.Does the V2 have good build quality at least then?Because I have heard quite a few more bad reviews than on the T2, while they have a similar price.
>>71408563These things. The shape is fine its probably just the tips, ordered a pair of Spinfit CP100's and they should arrive next week, hopefully it fixes it for me.
>>71408655V2 has better build quality than the T2. The V2 also had 3 different versions and the 1rst one is the one that's bad. The only sell the 3rd one nowadays. v3.0 Is unanimously very good.
>>71408463I've had my eyes on NiceHCK EBXs for awhile now, just don't have enough fun money to blow $100 on earbuds atm. I know the NiceHCK EB2s come close in sound though, just no detachable cable and different shape (but they're $30 as opposed to $100)
>>71408671Weird. Maybe you got small ears. Have you ever tried shure style in ears ? You could buy a no name cheap clone on ali to see if its for you.
>>71408690Well that sounds promising, and I guess that not having a microphone in the stock cable isn't a major inconvenience when the cable is replaceable.Thank you for the recommendation, this seems like the best option.
Well lads, just ordered a Tin T2 to replace my dead Xiaomeme Piston 3. Hope you're not fucking memeing these ones.

Anyone try the fitted iem meme? Sounds cool but I dunno how I feel about paying $400+ for IEMsI have a pair of DT1990s that I love to death and I use my Campfire Comets when not at my desk. I have ADHD so I actually tend to listen to music while walking to keep my mind from wandering. The Comets are decent but a bit bright for me, high pitch stuff hurts if I have anything above medium volume.
>>71408967Not as comfy as it sounds. Seems weird that you find the 1990 ok but loathe the comets when the dt are supposed to be brighter. You can spend loads less and have good customs. BGVP DM6 and TSMR 3 PRO are both excellent custom.

>>71398567Reee still on the fence with the KZ ZSN or the ZS3 or the Einsear T2. Or just continue on with applel earbuds.I mean will I really get a lot more quality out of the KZ over the Apple buds? Sure there's the bit of fucky static but idk.
>>71410328>That phoneZS3 is shit. ZSN is strictly better that the earbuds. T2 is slightly better sounding but less build quality.
>>71410430Well shit, I guess I'll order them then. What's wrong with my phone
>>71410328I'm gonna agree with the other Anon and recommend the ZSN. I have the Winsear T2 and while they are quite nice, sub bass is lacking. I hear that ZSN has nice badd though.
>>71410519Adding on to this: see if the CCA C10s are on sale for $25. I got them for that price and while I haven't gotten them yet, I've heard that they have exceptional bass, which was one of the things that I had wanted.
>>71392682I get that Marshall and Fender has been pathetic about slapping their brand on shitty chink speakers but the IEMs from Fender seem in-house and they make good amps?
>>71410565So what ? Doesn't stop them from making shitty Iems.
>>71410519>>71410430Fine fine. Item Burchased.Also I realized after buying it, I got the PRO version by mistake because it was a $1 less. Did I fuck up? I can cancel the order and get the other if it makes a difference.

>>71410751Well sorry bro but you fucked up. Not massively but still. The ZSN pro is marginally better but it's mostly more sensitive. That makes them louder but it will also amplify the static noise you heard with the earpods. It comes from your phone.

>>71410888well then I'll either get or build a dac to run off my phone if it is still a problem.It's odd because the S5 was praised by many journalists in 2014 for having the best DAC of the flagships, but clearly not if you actually get into the music and really listen, the faults are so clear. Unless of course its the shitty torrents themselves. I'll have to grab a different phone and do some comparison
>>71396809Oh anon, youre going to want to cancel your order on that BT20Pic related is what you get when you combine themIt might not look too bad but the shape of the e4000 makes it so it doesn't actually go into your ear.Too bad because the e4000 have amazing sound (which is why I kept them anyway), but youre not going to be able to enjoy them with the bt20s
>>71411110Oh fuck Didn't even think about that. Sorry anon I fucked up.

>>71402921I lost some Earsonic SM3 v2's like that, fuck 2 pin connectors.
>>71408549Maybe look into the Fiio BTR3, I got one a month or so back and it's pretty fantastic. Regardless of what others might say about BT audio it has come a long long way and the BTR3 covers all the bases codec wise with AptX HD, AptX Low Latency, Sony's LDAC format and Huawei's HWA format which you can use on any phone via the Fiio music app.it's so much easier having it clipped around a collar as it weighs next to nothing and I was so sick of yanking iems out every time I made a random movement.

I was worrying about my white cables turning green but they're turning 'gold' instead.
Just got t3s from amazon, not really an audiophile but I’ve read that they are pretty much an upgrade from the t2s. My sister lost her headphones so this was the perfect excuse to get the t3s. One problem though, (not really an audiophile so I’ll try my best to describe it) during, I guess, “high pitched” parts of the song, instead of hearing it, I’m almost 90% sure I’m hearing like a piercing staticky sound. Also I’m using oratory’s preset which helped a bit after turning down pre-gains some more. I tried going back to my t2s but i just can’t, it just sounds muddy (also with oratory’s preset) and icky.. Is this a problem with the unit I got(I could easily get a replacement it being prime and all)? Is this something EQ can fix? Or is this an issue with the file?
>>71414572It could be sibilance that you're hearing, try changing tips first.
>>71414731It’s mostly s c t th Words that’s really harsh. For context I’m listening to Ten Feet Tall - Afrojack this song has the most pronounced “harsh” sounds I found.
>>71414731Sorry forgot to add I did try changing tips to the included foam one (from cp240) the only that helped was turning down the pre-gain from -2.9(oratory’s) to -5.9 it’s not as harsh anymore but it’s still there
i wanted the green nooooo
>>71414879That was once the hottest iem meme in my country once, then the TFZ T2 Galaxy took over.
>>71414899nice, everyone here just gets cheap kzs with the bluetooth cable
>>71414572It's quite sibilant and you might want to learn how to eq properly. Just a 2-3db decrease in the 8k-10k? range worked for me. For the t2's, it's when quick sharp cymbals goes off, that it's quite piercing. Maybe stop using the preset and try to cut from there. Got used to these when I stopped listening at high volumes(and only using them now from time to time).
Dad gave me these tips that actually fit and are made of foam instead of shitty silicone. Thanks dad, you're awesome.
buy knowledge zenith in-ear earphones
Lmao so a year ago i broke my airpods, bought a new pair the same day. A week ago they broke again. Started using regular iphone earpods and they broke in like a month. Bought them again and they lasted two weeks lmao. They just broke. I swear to god apple really sucks i should kill myself if i buy an apple product again unless it’s an iphone for status symbol. Fuck apple lol i’m so glad steve jobs died like a fucking retard hope you suffered a lot and you family too

>>71415286>A week ago they broke again>Started using regular iphone earpods and they broke in like a month>Bought them again and they lasted two weeksAnon really living in the future
>>71415944Unless you're ok with one of these>>71411282>>71411463pretty much yeah. thats just my experience though maybe my ears are different.if you got them through amazon you can try it out and just return them anyway. I would have returned them instead of keeping them around thinking I'd find some MMCX IEMs that would be worth using with themI didn't.I'm now using the 30 dollar "Soundpeat" true wireless buds on amazon, for audiobooks and podcasts instead of music. Not bad at all for the price. e4000s are still amazing IEMs though, worth keeping regardless imo
>>71415944>>71413382>>71411463>>71416112So it looks like my 2 options are the fiio btr3 and the MEE audio BTX2. That other option looks like junk.Both around the same price. Which would actually would sound better? Better battery life? How well would the fiio btr3 perform when at the gym, granted I'd have to clip it on my shirt. Is that a realistic option?
Lost my tin t2, it's pretty /fa/ but no bass.Choosing between buying from someone I know selling unopened tin t3 for $35 or Revonext QT2S for that bass.
>>71416137Get an ES100 instead, it has a balanced output if ever you want to power headphones as well.
>>71416137>that other option looks like junkWhy? because youre not paying a premium like you are for the BTX2.Its all chinkware anon, paying extra isn't going to guarantee anymore quality. What are you an Apple consumer?Anyway I've used the OKCSC for about a year now, and paired them with my E4000s a few months ago and they work great, so you do you. If you were going to settle for something like the btr3 or es100 why not just get an armband for your phone and plug it directly into it instead of messing with Bluetooth?
>>71392821I need a new mmcx cable, what would you recommend?I also need a mmcx bluetooth module. Or am I better off buying dedicated bt earplugs?It's for my t2s by the way.

Has anyone here heard of the audiosense T180/T260/T300?I found them while looking at random iems on ali, if they really do have real knowles drivers they seem pretty good for the price.Any thoughts?
>>71417265Literally fucking who.Wait for other people to bite the bullet for you.
>>71417332That was what I was thinking too, but the the T260 uses the CL-22955 and ED-29689 for ~$50.That just seems too good to be true
Hi guise, please recommend me some bluetooth IEMs!- Needs to be sweat-resistant, I'd use them during workout too- The Xiaomi Mi Sport ones had the perfect ergonomy, but they broke down, and sounded absolutely SHIT (pic related)- I loved the sound of the KZ ZS5 with memory foam tips- Budget is ~$50
>>71416334>>71416445>Used for about a year>Haven't used for monthsTalk about a contradiction. I will be using these everything day not just every blue moon. I want something with some build quality, not just some chink shit that works good every now and then. And if you read my original post I have a Google pixel XL 2, im nowhere near an Apple product fanboy. If I was wouldn't I have just bought the airpods like a sheep and not even post on /g/? And if you've ever seen pixel XL 2 is huge. Keeping it on an armband is not practical, plus it has a shitty sound card. Having something that will actually boost the SQ and provide an ergonomical option to connect to my phone sounds worth it, but call me crazy.
>>71385034I have a 1more triple driver. Do you think there will be any upgrade for me by buying a t3? The quality of my earbuds is incredible, but they are so sensitive to bad compression. If there is a minimum rattle in the recording, it will be incredibly noticeable when listening

>>71417265>>71417711With the cost of materials for such an iem, I wonder if they are tuned.The cheapest I've found the drivers for the T260 was around $30, add some mmcx connectors, cables, dampening filters, shells, and the production cost.If I were them I wouldn't waste extra money on tuning these iems when the material and production cost is that close selling price.And when you look at their store on aliexpress, they also sell a 8 driver $300 iem that specifically states that it was tuned, while the other 3 don't.If they are not tuned I assume that the T180 would sound most accurate out of these 3 cheaper iems.Given that the T180 has a single balanced armature design, which usually sounds ok without tuning.I wouldn't buy the T260, if you must have an iem with a CL-22955 driver, get one that is properly tuned.
>>71418910We get it you like shrill highs and glary mids but If you want to shill your Qts shill them to bass heads at least. >>71418922With knowles you practically dont have to tune anything.

>>71419841Shittiest mids I've ever heard>>71420191Les français se font rares sur /g/. Perso je te recommande les Tin audio T3. Les basses ne sont pas sur-amplifiées mais le timbre est excellent et le son est clair. Les basses descendent jusqu'à au moins 15Hz en plus. Le seul vrai défaut est une pointe à 10k mais ça ne devrait pas trop affecter la sonorité ni induire trop de sibilance.

>>71430104>>71416334Forgot to include the original post that recommended the ES100. Thanks anon.
As someone who listens to a lot of extreme metal, I found the T3s pretty dissapointing compared to my ED16s and DT6s. While the DT6s were sibilant as well, I find that the tonality of the T3s is somewhat strange, and cymbalwork sounded harsh and fatiguing on them.Sadly my DT6s started rattling so I fell back to my ED16s and my old ATE-S, that are surprisingly enjoyable, though lacking definition in the upper mid/treble region and lower bass.
