Dasetn and Tingo are getting all the attention right now - at a fraction of the price.

 

Blox mistreated its customers too much - not including any accessories with a 95$ earbud (BE5), selling a 2$ IEM for 40$ (BI3).

And now Hifiman is supposed to release an earbud...

 

Blox will still have a place in the earbud ecosphere, but they won't be able to charge the same premiums anymore.

Though the BE5 is not as bad as the ~150 shipped they charged for TM7 :D

 

Hifiman bud will probably be $150 as well.

Hifiman will probably actually develop a new earbud, instead of assembling one from spare parts bought from some other brand's OEM factory.

I think the BE5 are masterfully tuned. The treble is extended and completely misses the tendency to be sibilant. The bass, with the help of the Yurbud ebhancers, has impact and warmth. The vocals are right there with the other frequencies.
I understand the use of generic housing since Blox is a small company vs HifiMan which is bigger with more resources.

yeah. its been 1 week since i ordered both be5 and tingo. let's see how it goes.

post #607 of 792

mine is running two weeks already. I wonder if somebody from the Customs Dept open the Tingo box, listened to it and never returned. Anyway, my Studio V 3ANV is also on its way. The Tingo should arrive in time for my new DAP.

When a 15$ earbud has better SQ than a 95$ earbud, the latter one becomes a lot less popular.

I'm pretty sure Blox doesn't develop and manufacture their own drivers either - it's too expensive.
