when I asked about it some weeks ago, Woo said, it is due in Dec, or no later than next March.

I so badly wanted the tg38s to be giant killers that I actually convinced myself that they were better than the M2C's and that couldn't be farther from the truth. I spent so much time with them hoping the sound coming out of them would mature to the point that I could eventually understand why some were holding them in such high regard, but that never happened.

After 150 hours of burn in, my conclusion is that the bass is stronger and vocals are clearer on the tingo's than they are on the m2C, but everything else is just a hot mess. One of the most frustrating earbuds I've ever encountered and I spent way too much time on them trying to eliminate their shortcomings through EQ Tweaks, amps, etc. only to realize that a balanced earbud like Blox's M2C require very little to make them sound good. After 200 hours of burn in with the M2C's, I can safely say that the TG-38's will never be anywhere near my ears again as long as I live.

I look forward to experiencing Blox's future flagship model.

If you've heard the Dasetn M760, I'd be interested in hearing your impressions compared to both the M2C and TG38S. I also found the Tingo Croons a bit too hot and artificial sounding to really fully enjoy, but use the M760 instead now.

Tingo tg-38s have their use as well as m760. I just use tingo when i don't care if they are damaged , like going to the bitch or the gym :P . The negative factor for me is as most of the members have said the artificial sound , they don't sound natural to my ears

Wow, your experience with tg38s gives me some appreciation; hype happens, as they want it. I could picture your endeavour and disappointment with tg38s. M2C's performance is out of question. As one of those looking forward to the next Blox's flagship model, I might regret having skipped BE7.

post #698 of 752

I have both the TG38S and M760 with red cable but idk if it is the "good" M760 or the "bad" one but either way, it outperforms the tingo. The tingo is very bright, almost too bright for my liking and sounds "tinny" but remains very detailed and just dark enough to not be fatiguing. The bass is almost non existent, less than the apple earpods and M760. The M760 on the other hand is very well balanced across the spectrum and is a fun earbud to listen to. It isn't as detailed as the tingos but it is darker, which gives it that fun sound. There is plenty of bass to work with and it doesnt leak into the mids at all. The bass becomes much fuller and textured with the foams on. Still burning these two in and have a BE5 arriving very soon. Will post impressions soon.

Got the M2C out after a very long time. They are probably the most "expansive" sounding buds I own. I really like them for watching movies.

 

Cable still sucks though. Winter now so beanies and hoodies help to keep them in place.

Please report back what he says!
$30+7 shipping. It may be an M2C update?

Is this thing gonna be better than the M2C? That was already a deal at $49 each, but now they're even less and maybe better sounding?

Seems that the Blox BE3 is a smoother, more fun type of sound. Woo described it to have a recessed top-end (but not lacking extension), warm, smooth, separation and soundstage carries the BE lineup of Blox.

Totally slipped my mind to ask about the comparison against the M2C though - At 37USD it's pretty cheap (more so than a pair of Yuin PK3) so I'll grab one for myself and one for the missus.

The left side cable of my beloved Blox M2C has split at the entry point into the earbud. I tried to recable (like i used to on several occasions for my Sony earbud). Unfortunately i completely destroyed the driver while trying to open the earbud. Does anyone know if the cable on the new Blox line-ups (BE5,etc) are better. I would probably hit the buy button for the BE3 as soon as we get to know how it compares to the M2C.
