Blox earbuds Discussion (TM7, M2C, ANV3, BE5) - Page 41

post #601 of 689
Got my TG-38S yesterday from Dasetn. Not going to overly judge them until I've gotten these broken in, but my first impressions are pretty close to BloodyPenguins. I remember not being bowled over with my Blox M2C's when I first got them, but after about 125 hours of burn in, I'm pretty happy with the sound....so the TG-38's hopefully have some changes to go through before I can put them on a level that surpasses the Blox's.

I'm just basing everything on first impressions. What I can say is that I can already tell they have stronger bass potential over the M2C's and the box that the Tingo's came in with its lining made a better impression over the cheap box that the blox's came in. Like BloodyPenguin said, there's something not quite right with vocals and the mids are recessed......there's a slight echo with voices. Don't know what he's using for sound equipment, but I've always ran all my earbuds as a base line using a sansa clip+ running rockbox.

Have used everything from Yuin Pk1's and Pk3's to Sennheiser MX580's and wasn't wow'd right out of the start with any of of them....maybe was with the Pk1's when amped, so I'll have to put some hours on these before saying anything further, but so far the Blox's sound much better and more balanced to my ears.

I've

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 #609 of 689

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.

Just curious what DAP are you pairing the BE5 with?
