I just ordered a ton of ~$5-10 IEMs.  One big surprise was a brand called YAOGE and one of their iems. One of them was all bass and not much else, but then I tried this one.

Bought for much lower than listed there. They actually made me say wow. Normally metal music is a good way to determine clarity for me, and these made it the new Soulfly sound really, really, good. Very impressed. Prominent punchy bass, clear mids, neutral highs, and separation which you don't find in $5-10 IEMs.

Would anyone happen to know the OEM for this?

Updated with some impressions. Lots more eventually coming, focusing more on the $10-30 brands (because my wallet can handle that better)

I just ordered the Awei ES800 and Senmai E1011. Heard good things on the former, nothing on the latter. Senmai also had one that is an obvious clone of the Sony EX-51s that were so popular about 5 years ago.

 

The product description on one said "Burn your friend, also can enjoy swimming in create music world." Don't know what that means exactly. Am I supposed to burn my friend or do the headphones do that for me? Either way that SOB has it coming.

Dunu is actually a Taiwan Brand, not Chinese. Head office including head-fi representative are in Taiwan. Just that the manufacturing factory is in China and more targeted towards the big Chinese market.

That's a matter of debate.

 

In essence, it's a Taiwanese brand, as the owner and the corporate level people are all Taiwanese. I've met with Rocky Wu before in Taipei. I know.

 

However, technically, DUNU is incorporated as a company in China. I was told by Rocky that R&D has moved to China as well to integrate with production.

 

Thus, the company is now more Chinese than Taiwanese.

Yeah okay then. So it USED to be Taiwanese but is now Chinese.

Thanks for the clarification tomscy2000

No, it was always Chinese. It was incorporated in China. It is a Chinese company. But the people that founded the company are Taiwanese. The last line was just to define how much of the company is located in China and how much is in Taiwan. I'm not sure if you're (mis)interpreting this as a political statement or not, but I can clarify this over PM.


 

Actually let's make this even more clear. TopSound, the parent company of DUNU, is a company incorporated in Taiwan. DUNU is a brand and company incorporated in China.

 

Therefore, DUNU is a Chinese company owned by a Taiwanese company. There are many of these types of companies.

 

And just to be clear, TopSound only does ODM/OEM work. DUNU is its in-house brand.

Ok got it. There are lots of Taiwanese who went over to China to run their business so I understand what you are trying to say.

DUNU, based in China, is just a subsidiary company of TopSound, based in Taiwan. Cheers

Does it really matter... All Asian, All Cheap and All Good!

Now I just need to get me some Pro 80's... Is the case nice, worth the extra or should I just grab the Gemini's?

Not all of them are cheap. Some are very expensive.

 

Some are high quality, some are low quality. Hoping this helps show which are which.

Very impressed with the AWEI IEMs I've been picking up. Good sound on the cheap.

Do you familiar with the desktop usb DAC/AMP from China? Something around $500 and works great with HD600? Thanks!
