>>83820660Stop ruining the HoF faggot.
>>83820660So I bought the Logitech G333 and while the lows sound good, the mids and Highs feel kinda lackingDid I get jewed? What would you recommend?Definitely want in ears for the office but at home I could go with over ears. I wear glasses tho so soft cups are a must.Thx for reccs anons.
>>83820660So bluetooth is a no go in audiophile territory?
>>83820986You can get decent bluetooth equipment. Everyone just fucking retarded.Bluetooth is great if you value convenience (working out, moving around the house that sort of shit).
>>83821061Kek, is that referring to me saying "did I get jewed?I mean, check Pic related
>>83820660WHAT AN ABSOLUTELY ABHORRENT OP
Finally based hof>>83820986No
>>83821154>Ah shit my bluetooth iem fell out>Picks it up the ground>Well fuck it fell out again>Fuck me I can't see where it isVery convenientPlus>*playing musi-YOUR BLUETOOTH BATTERY IS LOW PLEASE CHARGE YOUR DEVICE
>>83821286>>83821154>>83820986"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.
>>83821286>>*playing musi-YOUR BLUETOOTH BATTERY IS LOW PLEASE CHARGE YOUR DEVICEumm.. 16 hour play time you fucking stupid faggot
>>83821366just go away and shut the fuck up TWS is and will always be shitTWS earhooks are shit Some bluetooth cables are really good enough BT only recievers like quidelix are cringe because you still have a fucking long cable DAPs doing BT like the Hiby really fucking goodDongle DACs are super fucking cringe My shit posting on iPhone while controlling DSD playing on my Hiby through Hiby link is GOD TIER
>>83821466Low tier baitThere are no good daps.
>>83821402>his playlist only lasts 16 hourswho's the faggot now?
>>83821473your kinda right no DAP sounds like turntable and valve phono>>83821476> posting a strawman point is that you missed smoothe brain is no one is rarely away from a power socket for 16 hours these days, my last BT neckband the DR30 had a 40 hour playtime and through just common use never ever came close to getting a low battery warning the audio codecs are perfected and the battery technology is perfected, bluetooth is finally good and the hold outs are just luddites
>>83821517>>83821466>>83821413calm down zishabbo
>>83820660god, i want to abuse the pink haired one so badly :3
>>83821169>czech republiccheck the headfi thread i think there was a german seller
>>83821413>Speaking of HoF i bet you are the dishonest chink who put that POS Ikko OH10 in there. They are not cheapand I bought them and they were utter shit. The W shaped tuning is just whack and the huge sub bass bump sounds out of phase with the twangy High end. Thanks to having to pay DHL to return and the seller taking 20 off the refund i am good 70 dollars out of pocket because you fucked with the HoF .>#Remove OH10
>>83821604who posted that ?
>>83821517it's not called strawman retardits called moving the goalpostlike what you did on your first postthe point is not charging it but the annoying loud computer voice that interrupts you in the middle of a song (it's easily programmable to do that after or before a song but the companies know you guys will gobble that shit up)you absolute retarded namefag
>>83821286None 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.>>83821366It 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.
>>83821620some retard named Absolutely Anon, he went on an autistic rampage trying to tarnish the good name of the oh10s for some reason
>>83821623my new QS5125 set just makes a suble beep when the bats low after playing music for 16 hoursso the battery is soo good you never hear it and if you do its not annoying so your arguments are BTFO go ahead and cry some more you cringe fucktarded edgecase crybaby
Not sure if i should get the blessing 2 dusk or HD660S. I already have starfields and akg 712 pro. I would probably instantly go for the dusk if i can buy them locally i heard they have some problems like the plate falling off and using chink warranty is shit.
>>83821681DO NOT BUY MOONDROP
>>83821681dusk should keep you satisfied for a while
>>83821670>my FAG5125 is good therefore all bluetooth iem is good>namefag calling someone cringestop shitting up the whole thread shithead.
>>83820660>TranimeRem, Ram and Aqua are cool though.
>>83821286Dude just get Buds+>shake my head around like I'm playing metal>they don't fall out>11 hour battery life before I have to return them to the case to chargeOf 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.
>>83821694TAKE YOUR MEDS>>83821701yeah 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?
>>83820986Qudelix 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 itAnd 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 earsshiggy diggy
>>83822270They 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.
>>83821466>BT only recievers like quidelix are cringe because you still have a fucking long cabljust wrap them around your neck, retard. That way it's easy for me to strangle you when I see you.
>>83818429How come, explain why to a retard. They are all the same price so I don't really mind getting whichever.
>>83821466>bro what if your BT receiver was also a useless DAP that costs more and has worse battery lifeno, that's retarded. daps have been useless for 10 years, they only stuck around for their output, now even that is pointless. there is no reason not to do everything from your phone.
what IEM looks like this?
>>83823163Isn d10 is getting there, you’d need to add some more damping material in the nozzles to flatten the upper mids and treble a bit more
>>83823163Ikko oh 10 as well with modding as per >>83823201
>>83823163These 2, also modded SSP look up super*reviews graph.
Do not buy MeleDo not buy YumeDo not buy VK4Do not go to RussiaDo not be a nigger
>>83823293Russians endorse Mele? They're based!
>>83823498Mele is better than Oxygen.
>>83823526Ayooo muh niggurs check how dat toopac be slappin on dis mele sheeeit
>>83823745that's not how russians talk...
>>83823851Russians also don't buy niggerbass IEMs.
Etymotic ER2SE, ER3XR or ER3S?Price is irrelevant, I listen to a fair bit of hiphop and have never tried BA IEM's.
>>83824136>I listen to a fair bit of hiphopThen stay away from etymotic.
>>83823858thank you, i don't know what all this russian shit is. russians are white (kind of) and don't list to niggerbass
is it K-Bear or KB-Ear?
>>83820660tws iems that are good for music likehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwpaOGg-mWo ?
>>83820660re zero is shit, main character is a whiny faggot, like calm down pussy stop crying about stupid bullshit.
>>83824146I need them mainly for the isolation
>>83824221The latter - KB = Kobe BryantFor real.
>>83824136Er2xr, it's a DD
>>83824278It's obviously Knowledge Bear.
any iems that look like this?
>>83824286You will never have an abundance of hot black girls to /bleach/ in your 3rd world country.
>>83824303that looks more like the opposite of my graph
>>83824303pretty close to the shape though it needs to be more in the mids and treble
>>83824351No, only headphones can achieve this.
>>83824360not even ear buds?
>>83824298Not him but black ppl look like shit, the meta is to catch some broke beautiful ruskie girl and fly her to your country for trad wife times
>>83824534Not all bass is equal.
>>83824534i'm sure this was a very scientific and wide scale survey.
Imagine expecting to pay 300+ for an iem but then nobody ever charges you for the premium shipping costs and you just receive it in less than 5 days for free.RUSSIANS/NIGGERS/FLAT CHESTERS BTFO
>>83824619Worse than mele's tho
>>83824284It's better then the ER3XR? I don't mind trying out a BA
>>83824612what do flat chesters have to do with these
>>83824631Found the afroamerican
>>83824642Flat chest represents struggle, poverty, a chest full of fat and muscle represents prosperity.
>>83824638BAs are worse for bass. Worse for everything honestly, their only advantage until very recently was tuning.
>buy this cable 3 weeks ago for $13>suddenly $35+what actually goes into cable pricing, the fuckI was gonna rec this cable because it feels great and looks slick. If you see these back around $15, cop for sure
Is there a way to import an Equalizer APO EQ preset into Android apps like Wavelet?
i want to nakadashi all of them
https://youtu.be/7CvN-gcyizENewsflash: Timeless sounds like shit. Buy MELE.
>>83824767It will go back down on 11/11 - pricing gets boosted pre sales on Ali.
>>83824884So now the niggers and ruskies are cannibalizing themselves? Oxygyno will remain.
>>83824767Nicehck are my go to cables, I already have 3. The only problem is their 2pin connectors are too short to fit recessed 2pin slots, ordered some yinyoo's to compare(at least on the photos they seemed to be the right shape).
>>83824884Poor russkie bought a dud again..awww
aaaaa zex review when?
>>83824669Oh ok, i'll order the 2SE's, thank's
>>83825024>SENo, these have no bass. You were specifically told the model that has the most bass out of all etymotics, what's wrong with you.
>>83825056The xr are twice the price on Adorama for some reason, I also have KZ's for niggerbass
>>83825091SE on adorama is a good deal but just don't say we didn't warn you.
>>83825123So should I buy the ER3XR? They are 70$
Looking to get some advice thanks guysBudget around $100USDSource is Xiaomi MI A3 phone running android 11I'm in AustraliaIn-ears, I used to have some jaybird x4 and they were good, I woudl really would like to go with bluetooth non-wired.Mostly listen to pop/hiphop music.

>>83825494they sound crap, are bulky and have finite lifespan due to built in battery
>>83825494That price is just fine
>>83825547kys petrol sniffer
>>83825531>>83825547Good points thanks for the advice, the vk4's seem very affordable I'll grab them cheers.
>>83825557have zex, incel
>>83825380Mifo o5 ii
zex is overratedvirginity is based
What went wrong?
Is there any noticeable difference between EDX Pro and VK4? They are pretty cheap so I might just grab both.
>>83825863one has better qc than the other
>>83825863vk4 is the only thing you need
>>83824767You were lucky they sometimes have random price drops on aliexpress, look at aliprice.comI 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.
>>83823212Is this any different than simply using parametric or convolver eq? No, right?
>>83826319No, but it's worse because it's unpredictable, each IEM will behave differently.
>>83826293Literally worse than smeles
>>83826451They look better tho, don't worry I don't mind paying extra
>>83826376It is predictable though, you just need to measure the impedance curve which is very easy.
>>83826524start saving up for gynecomastia surgery

>>83821286nta but do your iems really just pop out of your ears for no reason? i'd like to buy some cheap bluetooth iems just for listening to audiobooks while i clean, not everything is about getting maximum Q U A L I T Y. sometimes you just don't want a cable getting in the way.
I've asked this before but my Blessing Dusk 2 right IEM rattles a lot. I don't have the volume on full or anything, and I've eq'd my player several times. Anyone else have this issue?
hey /pmp/, does anyone here have experience using rockbox? are you aware of any major issues? i'm specifically interested in using it with an old ipod classic.
>>83821889for the average ali shop, you can request that they declare it at a lower value. not sure if shenzhenaudio does that or not.
>>83828031I have a ZEX coming from them, I can inform if they undervalue the items when it arrives.
>>83828041I've had it for 6-7 months now. It only started recently.
>>83827332You just posted cringe spic
So much butthurt over a badge, me likey
If I need to do:+2.2db of gainQ: 1.38Freq: 16hzBut my equalizer only goes as low as 20hz what should I alter to make it the same?
I want a clairvoyance in a clear and solid 3d dlp printed she'll, the one the s8 uses.or a variations.I'm going to buy the s8, even though it's tuning is likely worse for me than clairvoyance monarch variations a8, just because of how good it looks.
>>83828108I think they give a 1-year warranty. Ask your seller about warranty and return it, that Moondrop themselves can send new ones.Even KZ gives a 1-year warranty.
>>83828242>haha so much butthurt
Is Tanchjim Oxygen the only iem with staying power?
>>83828701It's the only iem with gyno power
Very important new poll for /iemg/ schizo HoF :http://poal.me/3h4i9s
>>83828958All me btw.
>>83828975Tbf if starfieldfag is supposed to be moondrop shill, then its also met. gyno
>>83828471Moonarch and Variations are both trash due to unnatural subbass shelf
>>83828701I 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.
>>83829403>VE8 nah it's trash>at least 5+ yearsunreasonably long time frame for something as volatile as iem market
>>83829427>nah it's trashMaybe but there still isn't a replacement for people who like "high quality" mud.>unreasonably long time frame for something as volatile as iem marketIt can be done, so no.
>>83829477You could come up with literally 1 iem still in production and it's not that popular today either.
>>83829335I agree with the Variations' subbass, but you can always EQ it down. The profile over AutoEQ is quite nice.
And why am I destitute? I can afford 7hz timeless and seeaudio yume, can YOU?
>>83829555EQ = cope
>>83829403I 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.
>>83829592seethe and dont breath
>>83829572Nice larp but you're not even a real person. You're just the gynofag's other personality.
>>83829641don't get upset at truth
>>83829655I'd never buy Oxygen, Mele sounds better for fraction of the price.
>>83829676Ok nice larp gynofag
>>83829555Variations 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.
>>83829716>Variations could use more subbassActual brain damage.

How good are XBA-N3?
i think my ears are hypersensitive to pressure. coming from KZ-ATEs with no problem using them for for 24h+ my ears hurt after trying Tin Audio T2 Plus / BLON BL-01 for 30mins.im close close to oder a few KZ-ATEs from aliexpress because amazon stopped selling them here and the break after 1 1/2 years for me. i need something small like the KZ-ATEs, i don't mind paying like 60-80€.
>>83829592You = audiofool.
>>83831117Basically perfect if you think technicalities is just audiophool for MSRP.
>>83820660Which PMP if I'm on a budget? I only want one because I don't want to drain my phone's battery and becaus eit has physical buttons
People here should just accept that Moondrop and Tanchjim are the future and KZ is the past.
Anyone had something like this happen?>having a good time with my Arias>one random day plug them into phone>wtf one side is almost completely silent>no weird noises either>let them sit about for two-ish days because no time to deal with them>decide to try them again>everything's OKwtf? I had them replugged (who knows, the contact might have gone bad), but after letting them stay automagically "fixed" them. Are they cursed? Do I need to murder a youtuber to undo said curse?
>>83831517>I had them repluggedforgot to add, I did that on the day of them going "bad", and it didn't fix shit then.
https://a.aliexpress.com/_mOP02nCIs this a good idea, or will I get a turd?
>>83828701>what is the moondrop single dd
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.
>>83831691The big risk is you get a half dead battery
>>83831888Pick one of these
>>83831919Can't read even half of that but I will feel my way through, many thanks anon.
>>83831905How hard is it to replace it in the future?
Softears RSV or Moondrop S8?
>>83831233vk4 or zex
>>83831517same experience with my VK4
>>83832360One is $80 and the other one is $8
>>83832296S8.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 thoughs8 is the most beautiful earphonethus the other is notEQ in some sub bass though it clearly needs it
>>83832408I 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 need a new amp anyway, magni 3 sucks ass.anyone have this combo? how is post EQ dt880 600
>>83832420it's true. every time i take them out of the case i think "man, these things look fucking sweet".
>>83831919Between the FiiO M3K and M6, which one would you recommend most? They both seem pretty cool. Is the M6 a considerable upgrade to the M3K?

So my mom got samsung galaxy buds2 and I have CCA C12s, i tried both of them on one after the other, I gotta say, mine are at least 1.3-1.5x better. The sound is much clearer and much more 3dam I retarded or something? the samsung buds are like 110 bucks are chink iems really that good?
Any graphs on the 4 new fearless IEMs?
>>83831517Sound cannot travel in a vacuum.
ok this is a very specific request but, I get bad ear inflammation with almost all IEMs I've tried. seems the only one that's been kind to my ears is a shape exactly like the airpods pro, where its not really an IEM so the tip doesn't stick in very far. but i hate the fact that they're wireless and can't be repaired. is there any wired IEM on the market that has the exact shape as the airpods pro that also won't break the bank? for the record I've tried spinfits as supposedly they're wider than they are long but they didn't help. still goes too deep.
>>83833558bose QC20s have a very shallow insertion, but they sound kinda ass.
>>83827178Stop me faggot
>K KZ is the past
>>83833605looks alright but I'm not a fan of the winged hooks, non repleacable battery and price. any cheaper alternatives?
I don't know how much longer I can do this it's so difficult living without them
>>83831870>only iem with staying powersays nothing about quality, only staying power
>>83833605I 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.
>>83830461no. 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.
>>83831233get 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.
Bought the zex on impulseIf i dislike them i will gift them to my gf
>>83833671i'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.
>>83834154Bought the pink one.
What should I do: use my phone with USB-C to USB-C cable to my Fiio BTR5 or buy a pmp?
>earbuds fall out easily>no problem, my beanie holds them in>summer is comingWtf am I gonna do now?
kz finally has the genshin crossover lmaohttps://kz-audio.com/kz-zex.html
>>83836074wear headbands instead
>>83833741go on, then
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.
>>83836142/giggers/ are you gonna buy it?
>>83836651Oracle or EJ07m. Also consider Softears RSV.
>>83837821Not very usable considering the lack of wires.
>>83837374>Implying they're not already kztards
>>83820660Best iem for music likehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eS8OMv8VF70?

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.
>>83838297You'll hear even more with IEMs. Try hd600.
>>83838297I 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.
>>83837992>>83837977Ahahahahahaha so the melefag was a legit nigger
>>83838297https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYZHkDhad54&t=223sAlso maybe using a tube amp can add enough distortion so the scratches become less noticeable?

moondrop sparks or galaxy buds
>>83841364>mudnigger makes mud iemWow!>>83841805ZEX
Am I making this shit up because of placebo or do my IEMs sound slower in the morning when i first use them and then they get faster the more there warmed up or something? I swear some fast paced songs i listen to sound slower when i first start using them
Tanchjim Oxygen the 1DD king
>>83842171Ywnb the EX1000, broke ruski.
>>83842171best gyno shout in business
>>83842144yeah that happens. its why i put mine in an waterproof box and place it in my shower in the morning so theyre ready and warmed up when i leave my house
>>83842184No I am not ruski>>83842186Thnks
>>83842144There's a drug that makes music sound slower.
>>83842255>shills chink 1dd lowfiOk broke ruski.
I'm about to press the button on Blessing2:Dusk, talk me out of it.
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.
>>83842568cope with what? atleast i didn't blow all my money on (((hifi audio)))
>>83842623yes because you're an impoverished subhuman from russia, we know
>>83842660>impoverished>russiacope, i have more money than you ever will sand nigger
>>83838221It's too hot to wear one wtf am I gonna do
>>83842568Is it really a comfort issue for normal sized ears?
>>83842144I'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.
>>83842718Become a douchebag and wear it anyway.
>>83842673you barely have money for food subhuman>>83842726yes
>>83832785Nah, 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.
