Wow, Carbo Doppio, I'm jealous.

Happy New Year.

post #17973 of 32862

If anyone ever wanted a dynamic driver that sounded like a balanced armature without the lack of bass, these do the trick.

 

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.3.w4002-218018788.35.pfBSHO&id=36694031589

 

$10. Destroys the Monoprice 8320 SQ.

 

The bass might actually be too much for some people, but not for a bass nut like me. Nice upper end clarity and vocals too.

 

SF just let me know that they look just like the CKN70, and I agree. There are several differences, like the OFC blue cable and "GK" logo on the shell , but I wouldn't doubt that these sound similar. Big, clear sound from these 5.8mm drivers. Aluminum alloy housing too.

^ Looks like a straight ATH CKN rip off, maybe it is a CKN50s OEM??? Would be CRAZY sweet if it was a CKN70 OEM. LMAO

 

Sweet discovery meng, diggin' their look/ blue cable as well.

 

Got me self a set of those LG QB2s from this dood.

 

Can't wait to see what the hype is all about!!! :beerchug:

If those microdrivers used in the CKN70s are from Aipon, then it wouldn't be a stretch to say that they are similar/if not the same.

 

I mean both are 5.7mm, only thing different spec-wise is the impedance and the sensitivity (18ohm/98dB vs 16ohm/104dB).

 

It's actually a shame since apparently I'm supposed to get in VC02s for cracking open to harvest the microdrivers, these ones look much cheaper to stock up on.

They make a lot of ATH clone type drivers and sets. I wouldn't doubt if they use the same factory for the drivers, or if they are the factory. It is a 5.8mm micro driver, and I wouldn't doubt that it probably sounds similar to a CKN70. All their blue cables are 32 core OFC, which is a nice touch too. 

 

As far as the QB2, if you tame the midbass in EQ it sounds excellent. I think you'll like it.

 

If you don't like the stock sound, use this EQ setting in Foobar I made.

As far as the QB2 vs. this KZ Micro Ring, the Micro Ring smokes it :)

Just do a little tip rolling, I promise you'll have a "wow" moment.  If you have them, Ultimate Ears tips are the best I've found by far.  If you just want a little more bass block the little trench on the top of the nozzle with some foam.  It also smooths out the treble.

You're in luck. Aliexpress has them. Search aliexpress to see if they have a cheaper link aside from this one.

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Kz-spelialized-type-circle-5-8mm-acme-in-ear-earphones/1588219293.html

 

You'll pay slightly more than Taobao, but Aliexpress is like chinese ebay and has buyer protection.

I got mine in today too. Trying to get some time with them now.

 

Yep, the stock tips are meh... but I hear a lot of potential here. These S4 buds sound much better than $5 already.

 

Right now there is a midrange / mid-high gap somewhere, and detail suffers, Only 10 min in though.

 

Even though the S4 has been out for quite awhile, these are a nice find. They have a bigger budget bang than the Brainwavz Delta. I'm guessing they are so cheap to buy because they need to make millions of them.

I'm going to set the Samsungs up for a good pounding on the fullsized beast. See what happens.

 

Please check in if anyone finds those blue things available easier here in North America sellers
