Lmao, the posting has been removed.

Here is the screenshot of my purchase.

Either I'm the luckiest guy on head fi, or he is currently in the process of contacting eBay customer support.

Finally got the Yinjw IE800. I won't promote it much since it has logos it shouldn't have, but it does sound pretty spectacular and bass punchy so far.

It seems like a lot of people on here want the world's greatest headphone for 25 bucks, and I'm one of them (lol)

The thing about it is, everyone's taste in music and sound is different, and there's many different sets of ears that all hear differently.

I don't like when people ask "which one is better?" because honestly unless a iem or headphone completely destroys another phone in every aspect, it's not "better".

There are phones that are better for certain genres of music, for commuting, for running, for sonic accuracy, for at home listening, for durability, and on and on and on...

I think that's why I've become so fascinated with personal audio phones and accessories. The perfect one depends on the circumstances, and what we plan on listening to, where we are using them, how we use them, and so on.

I used to think the Pistons were the greatest headphone in the world for 25 bucks, but that was 40 pairs of IEMs ago... FML

Truth is I don't regret a single purchase (well maybe a couple)

If you're looking for the greatest headphone for 25, 50, 75, 150 or more bucks, welcome to the club and sorry about your wallet. But please, when you ask for suggestions be specific. There is a perfect iem for your needs (for now), and a bunch of people on head fi that will help you spend all your money (lol).

Head-fi on!

I agree completely. You can have five headphones that are all technically good, but sound completely different. And you'll find a person for each headphone that thinks that that one is the best while the other 4 are a waste of time. And you know what? They'd all be right. Because the best headphones are the ones that you're enjoying, not other people.

 

I think it's also dangerous to purchase things with "upgrade" always in mind. It's a funny term. What exactly are you upgrading and how many dollars is that worth? Many people try to upgrade be spending larger amounts of money and find themselves disappointed that the sound doesn't seem that many dollars better than their previous pair. But what exactly does a person quantify? I would love people to say what WOULD make their upgrade sound this many dollars better. If someone spends double on an "upgrade" pair of IEMs, what would those IEMs have to sound like to make the person feel like they got double the value? I don't think many people could actually answer that. 

 

Anyway, here I am going Off-Topic. So time for something on-topic. Um. I think the those Fidues are seriously gaudy-looking. That gold, kinda sci-fi thing it has going... yuck. Interested to hear people's impressions on the sound, of course. Always interested in impressions even if I have no interest in buying them myself :cool:.

I like the tenore but omg, I'm tired of people saying they are the greatest thing on earth. It's like every page is littered with someone saying that they are better than anything you can buy. I have them, like them, but cmon! They are good but aren't an "end game" iem that destroys everything it's path!

They are on par with the havi and kc06 IMHO but the claims that people are making are going to make people buy them and be like "wtf, this is the best thing money can buy?"

I don't want to put a crown on these and hold them in any higher regard than the kc06 or Havi. I don't want to take credit away from manufacturers of great phones, and run around with a boner and a pair of tenore in my ear, proclaiming to the world that they are superior to every iem that exists (made me laugh)
