My next Chinese brand purchase will be these...

 

The Tingo GX3

 

Should be in stock soon as it was to be shipping around or after June 10th. Could be delays as we see many times. A Translation :) of the particulars...

 

"Product description:

Section "GX3" headset is "Tingo" independent research and development of new products.
Its main features are:
Using a diameter of 6.8 mm moving coil unit, HIFI in domestic or foreign markets are rarely used in such a small unit and make good sound quality, mainly due to the development of small units difficult, difficult tuning, high cost!
The advantage is that the headset is small and exquisite appearance, wearing comfortable, stable unit sound!

Headphone parameters
1. Using self-developed high-quality micro-coil unit, after months of repeated tests to ensure the stability of the sound quality.
2 precision alloy chamber, like gods, atmospheric, noble!
3 sets of silicone with independent research and development, and flocking silicone sleeve, which is to ensure wearing comfort, but also perfect to improve sound quality.
4 exclusive launch high transmission low-loss high on special very soft yellow snakeskin lines, minimizing the effects of auscultation, professional fever wire, fever and students. Temporarily the only one on the market!
5 Each headset has to go through several high-precision test instrument testing before shipment to ensure that no defective products.
6 with a beautifully packaged box, router, whether it is a gift or for personal use are very appropriate.


This section has been touring the micro-ring-like version of the old Shao audition in! Everyone has gone beyond the shop reflects all small headphones TG!
A GX3, TG all headsets will readjust! Stay tuned!


GX3 preliminary packaging design, and finally shipped prevail!

Expected to ship around June 10th!"

 

I have two Tingo's and really like them both. Those are ear buds and not in-ears though. The flocked silicone tips are interesting and are sold alone for 10Yuan a set I believe. We'll see how these funny fuzzy tips turn out. The GX3 are not on Taobao yet but hopefully by this week or next if they did not get delayed.

Nice find. I might try a pair.

post #3813 of 5329

I'm sure all the information is in this thread but since I'm lazy and busy I'll ask anyway. I'f I were to buy affordable iem's what should I get? I don't need iem's but I've been thinking about getting a pair anyway. I have my mind set on a certain high end iem's but before that I would like to get an affordable pair as reference before I go all in. Pistons, ostry? What else is there? I have my preferences with soundsignature but those are irrelevant now. I just want something that best shows the potential on inexpensive iem. I've heard my share of good headphones but I've never owned good iem's.

What kind of music do you listen to? What part of the frequencyrange do you like the most? (sub bass? high bass/low mids? high mids/low treble? high treble?) Are you looking for something musical or articulate?

Answering these will give us a better idea of what to suggest.

I was disappointed with the QC of the ED3. Seems like more than one person has a bad wire/driver on theirs like mine. I'd have to pay return and sending shipping costs for a replacement, so it isn't worth it.

 

Tingo does seem to make some quality stuff though.

Man that really stinks that you got a junk pair. I really enjoy mine more and more. I'll rank them ahead of the ax-35 but just below the kc06. They really do have a defined, bright, midcentric sound that I think you would enjoy.

Don't sleep on the Sony mdr-ex58v. You can get them on eBay for $15 usd and they are amazing.

Hearing is believing. Give these a chance, I think many who read this thread will be mesmerized by just how good these sound.

I look forward to your impressions. I'm confident you'll feel like it's $15 well spent. I guess they are discontinued. I ordered an extra pair, and bought several pairs of them for friends and coworkers.

They respond well to amplifiers, have great soundstage and are slim profiled. I love them because I can rest my head on a pillow with them in. They have a junky little in line volume control that can come in handy, but I just leave mine turned all the way up. Think jvc ha-fx40 with less extreme of a v signature, less but more controlled bass, not as bright and sibilant, and with better and more detailed mids.

I realized that I don't have a throw around pair anymore for bed and to just throw in my pocket. Today also being father's day, I thought it couldn't hurt to gift myself a little something 😉
post #3822 of 5329
Happy father's day my friend.

I actually picked myself up a pair of ath-im50s because I was a good dad this year...muahahahaha

I was bouncing back and forth between my VSD1, mdr-ex58v,and gr07 BE and I gotta say, although the vsonic ceo said the vsd1 is tuned to sound like the gr07 BE, the mdr-ex58v is closer to sounding similar. The gr07 BE is better than both, but not a whole lot more than these budget hidden gems.
