Good review. I like it that companies such as Blox exist. They might only be doing a few hundred products but people seem to enjoy them. I don't even like buds myself because of fit problems but I'm glad someone is still making them.
[REVIEW] Blox TM7 - King of 'Buds - Page 2
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
Yeah, but the transducer HiSound used barely fit the housing of Living actually. I would think it might not fit a smaller housing like those used for PAA-1 Pro. Also, that housing add some weight and isn't ergonomically better thought. A few years back some company also used the ATH-CM700 housing which also great on the look but fail on the fit. I think we need a design that can better compromise the two aspects.
Thought they never told me how many they have planned to produce, I can tell from their response that it isn't going to be much more than M2c. They are talking about their hope to release an extra model, but it is out of their capability for now. Most likely next year, I guess.
Good review ClieOS. For me it's difficult to imagine a good sounding earbud, as I've only tried very cheap Sony and Philips models xD
By the way, have you tried the Sennheiser MX980? I have read very good comments about these. I wonder how they compare to the TM7 (I know the Senns are ~$50 more expensive, but I'm just curious).
Never own or hear TM5 before. As you have said, it is quite rare since only 250 pairs was said to have produced.
I have heard MX980, almost buy one too if not for the fact that Sennheiser Asia didn't stock them. Since I don't own one, and comparing via memory is highly inaccurate, I don't think I can give you a very clear answer. All I can say is my memory of MX980 seems to point to a more neutral sound than TM7, but I can certainly say that as far as first impression goes, TM7 surprises me much more than MX980..
Was just saying "hi", @kostalex!
Got a pair of the TM7.
At first, I was worried...but the muddy bass and slow sound got better and I have had a couple of nice sessions with them + a couple of times that I needed more isolation.
Have not yet compared directly to PK3 but asked the GF and a co-worker to compare. They both said they "were better" but they still love their PK3.
So, I'll report back after I get a chance to compare for myself.
If you read back the section, I actually think it sounds just fine without burn-in. Blox says I should give it 80 hours so I made it to 100 hours just to be extra sure.
