My favorites so far are these.
KZ-A1: Subwoofer bass for $15. Clearer than most booming in ears, but not as clear as...
Moe SS-01: Clarity is awesome, subbass is well extended and EQ's well. If you are very sensitive to treble, there's a bump in the 4k region that is a little harsh that can be cut. $60. Was practically unknown up until a few weeks ago, and seems to best the JVC FXT90 it is based off of. Starting to impress more and more people.
Tiinlab T114: Bass monsters, U or somewhat V shaped, yet much clearer than just about any other big bass phone I've heard. Looking at their technology and background, the company looks to have been around a while in other areas of audio. $60, very unknown. www.tiinlab.com
Ostry KC06: Titanium shell, titanium boosted treble sound. Vocals are near breathtaking, but the treble boost hurts bass a bit. 110+db sensitivity. Really crisp if you like boosted mid/highs. Complements the Tiinlab well when I don't want a dance club in my ear. Also $60, also unknown. www.ostry.com.cn
Moxpad X3: almost matches the $60 sets here, for $23, and is more balanced than all of them... I think. Only 30 min in on these. Only knock is the cord, which is a bit microphonic. Fits my ears like a glove though.
One of the coolest things about trying all these chinese brands, is that they are incredibly hard to find outside of China. I am probably the only person in the US with several of these. I like the unique and rare aspect of it all.
Unlike what most people think of chinese made stuff, a lot of it is actually very, very good, and the value can be outstanding, since you aren't paying for a middleman or marketing department. You just have to know where to look.
following the hype story:
mine have reached the 20-30 hrs, and WHAT a change. first thing is "Hello Highs!" second, "OH, you have NICE VOCALS" yep, highs are much more present, still no peak fortunately. but today i had to lower the volume a bit as the Whole sound start to take an agressive turn! Vocals have better texture now and more detail.
Moe told me to give them 50-100 hrs. so 100 will be .
