Some reviews of Fidue models, except for ljoker's impressions?

 

EDIT: also found that ATH-IM70 seems to be good and for 650 Chinese yuan that's around $110 - seems reasonably priced.

 

For the AX7 there are very few reviews on head fi on the matter, however i you go to Baidu here are a couple of sites with reviews on them. Apparently mediocre for a dual BA.

That's good. New Chinese designers and engineers going out and making their own kit. HiFiMan is Chinese, so new manufacturers may have gems. There is no guarantee, and I feel a bit bummed that I did not get the Edifier 850 or the Somic 463, both of which seem to be better sounding that any of the 7 I bought.

Still, process of elimination.

Yes, they're many different and affordable Chinese brands out there. It's definitely a process of elimination. Good luck to you and me.

Finally gave in and ordered the Havi B3!

I'll be doing a comparison review really soon: Dual Dynamic Trilogy - Havi B3 vs Brainwavz R3 vs KEF M200.

 

Thank you @bhazard for your help with the B3.

Is it? I honestly don't know because I can't read chinese but I was under the impression that it is dual dynamic.

I constantly try and collect new headphones/IEMs from China, so I will update as much as I can. Any user experiences/reviews/insight should be posted here as well.

 

Current favorites

 

Havi B3 Professional Version:

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.1.w4004-4437187920.1.9uNzb3&id=35700828655

 

There are two versions. The professional and the enhanced version. The professional is geared toward audiophiles, the enhanced towards bigger bass and colored sound.

 

This is a $40 dual dynamic driver that has some of the clearest, most accurate sound I've ever heard in an in-ear monitor. It easily surpasses some $200 models in SQ.

I was panicking after that! whew! :eek:

 

B3 is dual dynamic. I did a few translation through google and they actually used "Moving Coil" which is synonymous to Dynamic driver.

I don't read Chinese either but check out their website:

Not easy to know with the Chinese stores though, for example I've noticed that the DN1000 are listed as dual ba on most Chinese sites......

Those look like dynamics in the diagram. They have the humpbacks, which usually is the magnet. a BA is usually a box with a thin tube sticking out of it. Plus moving coils are for bass in dynamics. The RE-ZERO had a silver moving coil driver to enhance bass. I'm pretty sure the B3  is a dual dynamic. Plus let's not forget the Samsung HS-330 dual dynamic. They actually sound pretty decent running through the X3. Damn, can't wait to run the Dunu DN-1000 through my X3. 

 

Plus initial impressions of the Piston 2.0 coming later today.

It looks that if you are right. I just noticed the "Blance (!) Dual" on their webpage and took for granted they were dual ba. On the other hand if you make a pair of dual ba you'd probably know how to spell balance wink.gif

Much love for the Pistons from everyone who got them recently.

 

My new KZ models and 1 Sidy are shipping:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think the shipping pics from China are the coolest thing. It's pretty incredible to think these take a journey of thousands of miles from a foreign land in which I don't speak the language, to end up in my ears.

I got my initial impressions of my Piston 2.0 on the discovery page, and it was you who steered me to the Havi B3, and even had a play in my purchasing the Piston. So I'm trusting your impressions to discover more great budget IEMs.
