The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 1122

That's crazy if they are only $50.
Definitely great value at $50!

Aliexpress holds your money and doesn't let the seller have it until you confirm that you've received the item. Sometimes sellers will contact you and tell you to approve it early. If you get a seller like that than your best bet, technically the rule, is to report them to Aliexpress and you'll be issued a refund. I've ordered from there plenty of times.

Ya, they're $249 list, $199 with coupon through Razordog. I'm loving them actually. They are warmer and have more bass than the K550, but still have lots of clarity.

 

Some who loved the earlier AKGs don't like the added bass, and they're still not bassy enough to appeal to bassheads, but I think they walk a great balance. So far they're my favorite of all the headphones I've owned. I just got the UE6000s too, which are very nice and I like them, but if I listen to them right after the AKGs they sound like mud.

So you have to use your credit card? No paypal with this vendor?

post #16820 of 26099
Yes I did. Once I've made the payment it took a few days for the seller mailed it but it only took ten days in the mail. I'm very happy with my purchase so far but of course I cannot make any promises.....

As far as I understand it's not possible to use PayPal on any purchases from aliexpress. I've used my credit card on all my purchases there.

I found that the comply 400 tips are the best with the Onkyo's so far.

Are you saying RHA has slightly better treble, but Soundstage, midrange, detail, stage silence, and bass are better on Gratitude?

I've had a look at their other IEMs on offer, lots of brands are there too surprisingly considering some are not known much outside of audiophile circles.

For all their deemed genuine offerings, seems like they bothered to photoshop-ed out some of the logos but some were just left there like that.

Genuine, really? at such a price? 

But who would bother to mass produce obscurely known audiophile IEMs?

Your IEM does come with the Onkyo logo on it but no retail packaging?

I'm torn. They use the description "Top quality" on most of the fakes, and genuine on the others. They might actually be genuine.

 

Plus, like said before, them seem a little rare to mass produce copies of.

I really like what I'm hearing after only a few hours with them. Man, do they have a BIG sound. I'm a little surprised that these went of the rader so fast but I'll guess it's the nature of this thread (and this forum in general as well ;)).

 

If someone is still interested I got them of Aliexpress for $48 with free shipping and I see that they are even cheaper now:

Do you like them more than the Monster Gratitude?

To early to say. If you're refering to me saying best at usd50 it's because the Gratitude's cost me usd100 with shipping and taxes while the Onkyo's were 50 delivered (I should have seen that coming and been more clear about it smily_headphones1.gif )

Thanks.  I asked because I have the Gratitude and would only consider purchasing the Onkyo's if they were better.  I may have to save up for KEF M200 for the next upgrade.

I think that would be a safer bet (haven't heard the KEF but they sure seem to be great). So far I would say that the Onkyo's are more of a sidegrade to the Gratitude's.

I wrote that on vacation, used a touch screen device, that's what happens. I believe that is what I meant, but I'll try to listen again tonight or tomorrow (working now). My English teacher would be horrified at my syntax.

Great find Peter! I've dealt with Aliexpress before and they're legit.

post #16829 of 26099

the Onkyo IE-HF300 are great phones, great for the price with packaging or not. The m200 have been getting my attention mostly, much more refined and less aggressive.

im itching to upgrade to the asg2 though.

 

the Yamaha HPH-200BL look like very very nice phones... anyone comment on how much they bleed, being open phones?

Just got the M200 and I haven't found any flaw (sound wise) so far...
