Btw, these were sent to me from tvc-mall using DHL, left China on Friday and got here in US on Monday, insainly fast.

Shipping wasn't free right? Says an extra $26 for DHL, but that's the best option.

 

I may go with Taobao + EMS.

Bought the Bass Colour from DX.com in the ipod section for $30. It has a "staff pick" logo, so that's a good sign. It very much looks like a new company. Item began listing early December.

 

I was looking for some reviews on Dong Scorpio Bass IEM and found someone who bothered to write more. Rest are mixed short comments of average and value for money IEM. Nevertheless, there is short review which I tried my best to translate:

 

< 很宽松的调音..低频包围感很好,下潜一般但层次感竟然有,中频稍突出人声很柔和,高频稍暗,蛮均衡的流行调音,,绝壁不要被那个什么重低音骗了..分离度非常不错 >

 

very loose sound tuning .. probably means relax kind of sound
Low Frequency are wrapped nicely, low seems pretty normal but it seems to have some layering (probably some sub-bass?)
Mid is slightly forward and vocal sound gentle.
High is towards slight dark
Tuned pretty balanced, and don't be misleaded by the advertised bass heavy tuning.
Very good sound separation.

 

Question is will this be on par with Xiaomi Piston II, Somic MH415, or probably Moxpad X3 given the similar price point.

Why not just order from TVC?? I did, paid $159 with dhl. I dont think you can beat that.

I'm looking at $68 + $26 ePacket or $32 EMS (5 days) = $94 from certain sellers. Big difference.

wow that would be a nice price. But its without the fee for Taobao agent?

This month I will not order, but possible next month. Than I will try  - if there is no other possibility -  to contact the seller directly (or if someone would do this).

 

The Havi B3 seller on Taobao created a possibilty to order on aliexpress. Could be that another seller would do the same, if a few people ask for the possibility for ordering directly to US/EU on aliexpress/shop....

Hi,

 

Here are some of the TB review comments I extracted from Don Scorpio Dolphin and Drama headphone. However, there ain't much comment on DRAMA.

 

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

适合听真人发声/清音乐,不适合重音乐/摇滚等类型,好评。

Suitable for live vocal or sparse instrument music. Not appropriate for heavy, orchestra, rock and similar type of music.


是喜欢的声音。高频不闷,低频不散。撇开音质

It is the sound that I like. Highs are not dull with controlled bass. There is sound seperation.


虽然没有drama一耳朵的惊艳,但中高频更透彻!喜欢厚实感低频的建议选drama,偏爱人声的选dolphin不会错,总体风格小清新.新耳机感觉整体声音薄了些,期待煲开后的效果~

Though not as stunning as DRAMA. High and mid are more thorough (revealing).
Those who prefer more bass should go for DRAMA, while those who love vocal should go for DOPLHIN. It tends to give an air of clarity. New headphone may sound thin and hopefully, it should resolve upon burn-in.


外观比Drama好看多了,材料也没减,就是耳罩感觉浅了点,戴着不太舒服。头梁用料很赞。提醒买家朋友的一点是珍珠白实物没有图片好看,所以还是推荐大家买夜光海洋那一款。音质还是不错,不过换了风格,改走小清新路线了,低频和Drama不能比,但中高频要好多了,起码三频比较和谐。480肯定是物超所值了。继续攒钱等着入Drama。这么久了我还是对它的耳罩和头梁舒适度念念不忘~~虽然外表丑了点。。。

DOLPHIN looks better than DRAMA and it has the same type of good built quality. Pearl white does not look as good as shown in the photo. Thus, recommended to go for luminous ocean blue color.

The sound quality is good, but it has a different sound characteristics which tends to clarity. DOLPHIN low cannot be compared with DRAMA but has better high and mid. At least it sound more balanced. 480 is definitely value for money.

Meanwhile, I just have to save up for DRAMA. I still cannot forget DRAMA's comfort ever since, though it does not look as good as DOPLHIN.

 

 

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

DRAMA review

迫不及待的插到设备上试了一下,低频确实很犀利,中频表现也非常出众
Lows are well controlled, high and mids performances are very outstanding.

 

 

Hopefully, it will give us an idea of their sound difference.

Not really. TVC will probably honor a warranty. No such luck with Taobao forwarding. Much more difficult.

After searching for other sources for the Dolphin I found a very similiar looking headphone:

http://www.parrot.com/zik/

 

I think the engineers of the dolphin could had "a little bit" of their inspiration by this headphone ;-)

 

The cheapest price for the Drama which I found is 85 USD

Night and day in comparison.  In terms of build quality and compact folding - nothing can touch M-100, they build like a tank.  But they are inferior in everything else in comparison to Dolphin.  Earpad is a bit smaller (my ear fits better inside of Dolphin earpad).  Dolphin soundstage is wider.  M-100 is a perfect example of v-shaped EQ with mids (especially upper mids) recessed too much, while Dolphin's will be more balanced and more detailed.  Also, you get more sparkle in treble.  With bass, Dolphin wins again, more clarity and better separation of sub-bass and bass.  M-100 bass is warmer and not as punchy as Dolphin's.  As much as Dolphin's design looks "exotic", if I could have M-100 desing/build with a slightly bigger earpads and exactly same sound signature of Dolphin's - I would be VERY happy.  With M-100 I know they will outlast anything, with Dolphin - only time will tell about durability and build quality.  Hard to tell yet, but sound quality is amazing.

 

Can't wait for others to receive and to review it so we can compare our "notes".  I'm very curious to see how consistent the sound and the build quality between more Dolphin's.  I get excited too easy when I get a new toy and really like it.  Let's see other proper reviews of these :)

The ear cups from the Drama seem to be smaller and rounder than those on the Dolphin, from the photos. I wonder how they'll fit on those who have larger heads/ears.

I've found a review written in Chinese... http://piebbs.pconline.com.cn/topic-24053.html

The things in hearing must be an illusion 😲😵...if this is any indication of what the old version sounds like then those will be a effin killer iem😲...because proii already to my ears are very close to the level of the cardas em5813 for pennies and beating them at what it does....they are just losing in bass textures and soundstaging😲
