Yeah, I heard about the AX35. Should be an interesting phone. Very affordable for a single armature + single dynamic driver.

Ofcourse none taken.......but I think they did thr groundwork already with their single BA AX90 and triple hybrid AX60 models so they should deliver a very nice sounding cans to live up with our expectations and to sustain the fast evolving,very affordable IEM market

I actually have a pair, and i can vouch for them being highly impressive at the price point.

Thank you, yes I noticed they have good prices at the moment. Hmm, get the AX35 or save up for DN1000, it's really a tough world we live in.

Many thanks for revealing these great hidden gems and providing terrific information and feedback fellow head-fi'ers.

 

My pet hate in the audio world, is companies that establish a good reputation then rip off the market and make a killing just because there name becomes well known.  I've lost count of the number of headphones I've tried that allegedly will be the greatest sounding headphones because there a Shure, Sennheiser etc, then you listen to them and wonder what the hype is about.

 

I applaud this thread for bringing out value products that will not cost you an arm and a leg.  There comes a point where you have to question the price point of a lot of headphones out there. Are you really getting terrific quality or just getting ripped off.  Sadly I think it's more often than not the later.

I got the JBM 9013 in the mail today. I bought them because they looked very comfortable and they are but that's about all that's positive about them.  At $14 shipped these does NOT impress. Words like congested, hollow and boomy would be the best description of them. STAY AWAY!

 

For just $5 more one could get the Piston 2.0, I think these are going to be my best value for money for a long long time :beyersmile:

Confession time ...just ask my friend in China to get Havi B3 , Piston 2.0 and about 8 model of KZ iem for less than USD150 ....so me will is broken to pieces and resistance is futile ...just did not want to miss the opportunity of getting cheap gear ...so fingers crossed and by March when he is back ...hopefully by then I will be proud to say I am recovering IEM addict......so for now I'll just be lurking around ...kekeeeeeee

You should have gotten JBM MJ1000 as they are quite similar to KZ A1

Shame on you :p

 

I'm really looking forward to hear your impressions of them all when you get them.

Couldn't see any impressions on the 9013 so I thought I'd take one for the team. Unfortunately it did not turn out good this time

I'm looking forward to hear your thoughts on the DN1000 when you get them since they are on top on my short list at the moment. They're a bit price though so they would need to be a pretty big step up from the Piston 2.0 and the Havi B3 to be worth it to me.

One of the worst earphones I've had in my ears. Waste of money.

 

Today I received Somic MH415 - they look nice, but I don't have time to listen :(
