"TWS" = shit, same for bluetooth cable adapters.

there are very good BT receivers and that's what you should be using with your phone or a dongle dac. some of the BT earhook receivers are good too but expensive and finicky.

None of these things have ever happened to me. You can't argue against the convenience of TWS because it's their forte against wired connection.
>>83821366
It depends on the use case. If you really enjoy sitting at home listening to music then yes. Wired or using a propper BT adapter is the way to go but, if you are working out, working, moving around a lot (things were listening to music is a secondary activity) then TWS is fine and you won't miss much.

Of course I don't use them for 11 hours straight. I've never even heard their low battery chime. But having more battery than I need is way better than not enough. And in 2 years when they're down to half their capacity, I'll still get a respectable 5-6 hours.
>>

TAKE YOUR MEDS
>>83821701
yeah i also think they will might just pull the trigger now because shipping will take forever. Does Shenzhenaudio declare the value correctly? I saw they also have an ali shop i just buy it there otherwise and hope they undervalue it.
>>
What's the HD 600 of IEMs?
>>
>>83820986
Qudelix and btr5 are fine. You can wear them as a pendant to work around the cable. With TWS and cable adapters you always get one of the following(or more than one):
>hissing
>audible distortion
>connection so weak a can of soda can interrupt it
And before zishabbo says "just get a cable with a dedicated DAC", a cable with ak4331 had all 3. For "convenience" to be a factor this shit has to learn to do its job first, which is to play audio.

So i loved my ergofits but after 3 years they died so i decided to buy some with removable cables this time, i see you guys recommend the KZ EDX pro, how different will they be when it comes to conform and weight? could i sleep with them?
Should i spend a bit more and get something like the Tin T2's?
>>
>sleeping with shit in your ears

They are pretty comfortable to lay down with.

I prefer them (and similar format IEMs) to Tin T2 because they are pretty safe on your ear.

You were lucky they sometimes have random price drops on aliexpress, look at aliprice.com
I would recommend having some items on a watch list and checking whenever they drop below a certain price, either manually, with a script or through some service that checks for changes to parts of the website (and then select the price obviously). Another good cable to check for would be this one for instance https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000097502378.html. As for IEMs I know T4's can drop substantially from time to time, but with the Aria and ER2XR being a thing they might not be the best bang for buck even during a sale unless you like their specific signature.

I think they give a 1-year warranty. Ask your seller about warranty and return it, that Moondrop themselves can send new ones.

Moonarch and Variations are both trash due to unnatural subbass shelf
>>
>>83828701
I personally think staying power means at least 5+ years of being relevant and/or constantly recommended for some niche group.
Etymotic ER4, it has an eternal following because they stick to the same tuning and have high quality control. Andromeda, sadly this meme just won't die. EX1000, even though it's no longer produced people still swear by it and will even recommend certain people to find used sets. Viento, a cult classic for those lucky enough to have gotten or at least tried them. KSE1500 (now usually the newer KSE1200 but it's basically the same) is still a top pick for people who want the most detail.
IER-Z1R, Anole VX, VE8, and U12T I think is still too early to say they really have staying power, but they probably will still be relevant in 2-4 years. I personally think ER2XR, Blessing 2, Monarch, and MEST will probably become the next generation of IEMs that will stick out for years. No way of being certain though, with how volatile the IEM market currently is they could be overtaken.
Budget IEMs have no staying power, they are replaced by a new set within 2-3 years.

>>83829555

>>
>>83829403
I think really only Etymotic qualifies, maybe the U12T and Z1R. The rest have barely any discussion. There are niche communities for everything, even total turds of IEMs but broader popularity should be considered when looking at staying power. No chinkfi qualifies, the closest was the Blessing 2 but that was immediately cannibalized by the B2 dusk and Variations.

Variations could use more subbass but its single DD wouldn't handle it. It doesn't interfere with the music that has no subbass content anyway, and the music that does have it can always use more of it. Now midbass, that depends on the amount of melanin in your skin. He >>83829335 obviously has too much.

Hi fellas, I'm in the market for a new mp3 player. I should preface this by saying I'm not really a big tech guy nor am I really an audiophile, but you guys know your shit and might be able to help me.

I've been using two Sony Walkman NWZ-E585's for years now, one is now gone and the jack on the other is looser than the town whore's butthole. I love these players, they do everything I need. Unfortunately, they're no longer manufactured. The replacement model, the NW-E394, not a fan. The walkman option next up, the Multi-Music Walkman, seems to have pretty bad reviews wherever I look. I don't need wifi on a fucking player. I look online and see tons of other brands I've never heard of and have no idea if I can trust them or the reviews.

Is there a player comparable in customization and quality to the NWZ-E585 (pls no bully if it's a shit normie player, it was nice for me) in a decent price range? Preferably in the €100-250 range? Please help frens.

S8.
It's so beautiful that it will bias you heavily in favor of it which will dramatically increase perceived sound quality assuming you haven't devised some ingenious way of doing a true blind comparison at home with near instant switching and volume matching
for real though
s8 is the most beautiful earphone
thus the other is not
EQ in some sub bass though it clearly needs it
>>
>>83832408
I have this too, notice how theres no foam inside, that filter screen is pretty thick and gets clogged with sweat easy. But then it dries out. If you get seal better in one of your ears youll notice thats the one to go silent first.
>>
After hearing that the a30 pro was designed to drive the dt880 600 with EQ and seeing that the dt880 with either new or old pads post EQ is off the Harman preference rating scale I am thinking I'm going to buy both of them.
The dt880 is dirt cheap.

I can +1 this. I have these and they are by far the most comfortable iems I've ever owned. But the quality of the sound isn't going to impress you.
I use them while in bed.
>>
>>83830461
no. meh quality bass even if the level is ok. it's also poorly vented, chuffs too much air pressure into your ear canals, which adds discomfort and makes the music sound less spacious/natural. blon had better tuning but worse comfort and cable. dq6 was better technically overall but blon has better bass, so does ea1. you would think the bass would be great with so much dd but the overall presentation is upper mids focused. good for simpler acoustic music like folk, traditional rock, vocals. it's good in it's price segment but not that impressive. other IEMs have better tuning or better techs. with a filter mod the highs could be improved noticeably like in that graph but the bass would still feel lacking. I expect zex is going to come out over the dq6 too. it's still better than past typical kz shit and worth trying but I don't think it's that good.
>>
>>83831233
get something with 2+ vents or a vented back like that new kz with the steel mesh in the back. final e1000/2000/3000 are also open in the back.

i'm sorry, but they're the only ones i personally know of that are wired, create a seal, and have such a shallow insertion. i recall a guy who was in this thread a few months ago who wanted something else with the same tips, and i think he found some guide for how to mod bose's tips to attach to other models of in-ears, but i never saw the guide he was talking about and i have no idea how it works.

Oracle, excalibur or variations if I listen mainly to metal, vocal music, electronic pop and rock?
Or best all-rounder from them?
I want something kinda balanced but slighty bass boosted for enjoyment, not overly soft in the treble and mids, I like some energy and extension. I'm not a very purist audiophile but I enjoy natural timbre.
Soundstage and Imaging are not that important for me but good texture and decent separation is a big plus. Thanks!
I currently own several sets, my current favorites are the t2, regular b2 and 7hz timeless, T2 is good but bass is kinda lacking, b2 is very very good but can sound a lil bit sterile sometimes, something between the 7hz and b2 would be nice, I really enjoy the bass from the 7hz and "fullness"/body it has going in bass and mids. I tried the spring 2 too but even if it was decent sounding in pretty much any genre, bass notes felt very "rounded" and soft, not my cup of tea, mids and treble were kinda soft too. I like more defined treble. I3 pro was good but I needs more treble extension.

Beyerdynamic T1. They're too good, too analytical. You hear every scratch on vinyl, every cut on the tape. Sometimes when I listen to Good Vibrations, all I hear is scars.

I have an AKG K361 and it smooths over any imperfections and congests with even slightly more complex music. If you want over ear this would probably be perfect?
If you must have in-ears get some basic single dynamic driver ones under $15 like Samsung AKG EO-IG955, Sony MH1 with vent mod, or legit Sony MH755's (if you can still find them). Stuff like QKZ VK4, Moondrop Quarks, Tanchjim Tanya, KZ EDX Pro, and Blon BL-01/BL-03 might already have too much detail.

did you know Frequency Response charts are bullshit? it literally tells you nothing about the quality, and you know why? cause they are all the same, $5 earbuds sound the same as $5000 dollar iems because they all use the same driver, blind test it i guarantee you you wont be able to tell a difference. you all fell for it, fell for a fucking jewish scam.

I'm thinking the change is in your brain, not your IEMs. When you wake up your brain is bright and alert and processes more audio faster. You catch every detail and your brain is keeping up so it sounds slower. Then as you go through your day and your brain gets a little tired, it processes audio slower, you miss more, and it sounds faster as it rolls along past you.

Nah, C12 are just like that. They're one of the best KZ/CCA products. Their BA drivers are just good enough to give a bit of the 3D effect that higher end IEMs do. Meanwhile I've yet to hear a TWS pair that does the holographic 3D thing. In fact if I take IEMs that do it and put them on TWS adapters, they don't do it. I'd guess it's either timing imperfections between the sides, the fact it's 2 independent DACs driving either side, or the Bluetooth codec it's using not being so great.
