Chinese / Asian Brand Info Thread (Headphones, IEMs, Amps, DACs) - Page 167

Subscribed, I am really digging these diamond in the rough earbuds from overseas.

Subbed as well.

 

So, is the general consensus that the Asian market is a better place for IEMs and earbuds than full sized or on-ear headphones? It seems that most of the discussion is related to IEMs, if you don't count the occasional Don Scorpio Dolphin or Somic mention :)

 

I guess I should really get in on the Asian IEM scene. Would the Pistons be a good start? Also, what are your favorite portable Asian headphones? The Zoros seem to get all the love in the world, any others?

It is easy to spot them. They normally have no feedback, and the prices are too low to be legit. They never ship, and instead try to bait and switch.

They have everything. The Pistons would be an excellent start to see the bang for the buck you can get.

Hi guys, I'm new to the feed but I can't think of anywhere else better to ask this question.

I've recently jumped on the Pistons 2.0 bandwagon. I love their sound signature (and price). If there is anything I would want different, it would be for something with the exact same style sound, but the mids be a little more forward and up front. I am not a fan of modding so rigging my Pistons with a paper clip and tea bags is out of the question.

Any suggestions of what would have the Pistons sound but a bit more forward with their mids? Thanks

I think it's SoundMagic E10. Still V-Shape sound with more forward mid and better treble.

I have them, as well as the e30. Both of them are excellent. I slightly prefer the e30 over the e10.

I'm just so hooked on how the bass sounds on the Pistons and still is clear and crisp.

If I could make a love child that had the bass and clarity of the Pistons, sub bass quality of the mh1c, the fit of the e30, and the forward mids of the monoprice 9927, at a price under 100 bucks my journey would be complete lol.

I might just bite the bullet and buy the gr07 BE next.

Monster Gratitude's also fit that description.

The Intopic Jazz i57 are really, really good. I think that they might outperform the AX35 and are actually in the same league as the Gratitude's and the B3 Pro's. Just different sound signature.

Did I mention that I paid $25 for them wink.gif

Just a shame they're so hard to find. Anyone living in Asia should really keep an eye out for them.

Gr07 BE or havi b3 pro? Which is better?

Hard to find a Taiwan vendor. Where did you find them?

post #2502 of 26583
I was so lucky that a fellow head-fier brought them back to Europe from Taiwan and then mailed them to me. He did a review on them in the discovery thread and I (of course wink.gif ) thought they sounded interesting but couldn't find them and he offered to help, very sporty indeed!

I did a casual search on my local computer shop and the shop does carry Intopic brand.

The catch? The shop sells 8 types of Intopic IEM.

 

The price is in local currency, but as a reference, the price of i57 (Rp 118,000) is about US$ 10. In Indonesia usually the price displayed is already tax inclusive. Local shipping is about less than US$ 1 in here.

 

The problem is now selecting which one to buy from a choice of eight :)

 

Link (look at row 2 - 4):

I can buy it for you, but the cost of shipping to Down Under or North America will probably more than the price of the IEM.

Has anyone tried out the Astrotec Am-900's? Seems Astrotec makes pretty good IEM's, just literally can not find a review of these.
