Just put the Moe on with a brand new Telefunken tube.... my first $100+ tube, and it sounds SWEEEEEEEET. The harshness up high isn't there with this Aune T1 + Telefunken combo.

What kind of telefunken ?

The one Upscale Audio sells. I had to try one, as I've been using $20 tubes mostly.

 

Honestly, I think a lot of tube impressions are overblown. While it sounds good, in no way is a $120 tube as big of a game changer as putting that money toward a different in ear, amp, or DAC. My Aune T1 cost almost that much. Unless you really sit there and try to pick it apart, my $40 Genalex and $23 EH 6922 gold pin sound mostly the same as this. When you switch between an M200 and the Moe, now THAT changes the sound.

Just put in a Taobao order for a "sampler platter" of inexpensive IEMs . . . Somic MH405, KZ-A1 and Moxpad X3.  All-in about $45.  FYI, I called Moxpad and they told me their official authorized dealer in Taobao/T-mall is . . . http://xunyidianqi.tmall.com/

which also happens to sell Somic and other brands.

Good picks, and that store looks good. I've seen them before. Saved it for future reference.

Hey, just a quick question that Google translate couldn't help me with - that page says the X3 is half off right now, but whenever I click on the actual product, it shows the full price. Any idea why?

Happens sometimes. Try a different seller. One of them is $16 through the agents.

Thanks, I'll look around.

By the way, Epacket unfortunately seems to be an US-only thing, too bad.

Just got the Maya T1 and T3 Chinese Army based ones. The packaging they come in is pretty sweet. Case tin, commemorative coin, 3 pairs of memory foam tips, 3 pairs silicone, nice design.

 

Good sound on the T3 so far. I like them. "Sport tuned", but they seem nice and clear with decent bass extension to me. Sweat proof too supposedly. Around $30 each. Worth it.

I knew I forgot something this weekend - X3 vs M200 vs Flux.

I didn't manage to get my hands on the M200, so later this week I guess.

 

Heck, I might end up with an emptier wallet and an pending order for one of those AT clones as well by the end of this week.

The CKS1000 clone is sweet, and the CKW one is on its way.

 

I'm getting rid of my M200 if you want a barely used discounted one. It's awesome, but I need to cut down on what I have by a lot.

post #328 of 35472

It's alright - I remember not enjoying the M200 as much as I should have, so I doubt it'd warrant anything other than a demo down at the local store.

 

The 1000 clone is what caught my eye as well. I was going to send them an email about a possible CK100PRO clone, I think I mentioned this before in the thread, but I think it'd probably be best to test the waters first.


This is also Asian-ish and was mentioned on the Discovery thread but I can't remember if it was mentioned on here as well - http://ca.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Molex/503700-0100/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMuTkJYgZlQcSdYqTJ/5MevEJrY%252b91RThfo=

Excited to get these in.

Now, the Molex sounds and looks like it could be a winner, but this Freq Response chart is anything but neutral. Let me know if it is any good when you get it.

 

Same Molex as Molex connectors. Gotta support them, ya know?

My wife came with my ES800m and KZ-A1 yesterday.

Finally get to listen to them.

 

The I love the sound on the KZ-A1 and the bass is deep and punchy but workmanship wasn't great as I will have to glue the cover on the plug as it slips up when I pull it out of a contact.

Might have got a bad set though.

 

ES800m great build quality. Bass is nice but I found clarity on KZ-A1 to be better.

 

Both great for $7-10 USD.
