The good thing is that I've finally got some time to spend with my two Awei purchases from a while back: ES800M and ES100i.

To sum them up the ES800M is really really nice for $7. Nice bass.  airy and a little bright sound. It will not be easy to beat these at their price point. Should be great for gifts ore using for sport activities.

The ES100i on the other hand, while more expensive ($8 wink.gif ) does not impress me that much. The bass on these are even deeper then on the ES800M's but it bleeds to much into the midrange for my taste. They're also overall darker souding. If you're a basshead and prefer a darker sound they could still be of interest.
I have Awei ES800M too and agree with your thoughts on it. Actually I did ordered ES100i but they never did arrive...so no loss.

You should really check out JBM MJ100... IMHO they are real good........ Share some similarities with Moxpad and KZ..... A little bit of both.

Thanks for the tip. I'll see if I find them some place that's easy to buy from.

Yeah, I didn't find them on Aliexpress. So I think I'll be skipping the JBM.

Dealxtreme seems to have them. I never bought from them but they looks like a legitimate company.

I bought from DX before and with free shipping it took close to 35-40 days on few occasions. My 2 cents... Rather not buy from them... I got mine from eBay.

So far, the kings of budget chinese iems seem to be the Moxpad and Havi. The ES800M is no slouch either, and the KZ-A1 is excellent for bass, but lacks in clarity compared to the first two.

 

The ISK SEM6 is great too, but approaches Havi pricing.

 

Wondering how the new pistons will fit into the mix.

 

TOO MANY CHOICES!!! lol. Choice is good though.

 

I also got those new $$6 earbuds from KZ, and it reminded me why I hate earbuds. They aren't terrible, they just can't compete with an in ear at all.

I'm really intrigued by the Havi's. I think I'll get them and after that start saving up for the Dunu DN1000, they really seem to fit my preferences.

ordered the Xiaomi Pistons.  Looking forward to them; it's the right price and from a company I atleast heard of before.

@bhazard

Where did you buy the Havi's?

edit: nevermind, managed to order them from Ugomark. Now just to wait again .........

Got my KZ-A1 about a week ago a they sound pretty bad compared to the Cogoo and Maya e12. Bass is not deep at all mids are really bad. Starting to wonder if these are authentic? But I used the aliexpress link bhazard gave me.

Gediao GD-1

$22 earphone, sounds and looks much more expensive. Has quality packaging and a nice case. Clear sound, nice bass. U shaped sig.

The clarity is the biggest surprise. Much clearer than most $20 earphones.

Still giving them some burn in, but I like them already.

I got mine from the Aliexpress link that bhazard provided and if I remember correctly the shop name is "shen zhen jim" and they sounded real good ..very deep n detailed bass , tad high treble for me ( a little eq will do ) but mid not as prominent as the bass n the high ...overall liking it .

Realised that deep insertion for me works better ...whereas if inserted shallow ...sound quite thin ..also try them with comply foam ( the bass really kick ass man)
