Seems like you tested lots of the IEMs of Asian brands. What's the best discovery you've found so far value-wise? Knowledge Zenith?

I collect them. I like testing the unknown and rare. It gives me a head start before anyone even knows about them, aka my Takstar HD5500. I'm probably the only person in the US that owns one.

 

All depends on the price range and sound signature you like. I try to put little blurbs in the OP as to what they sound like, and the value.

Added some new impressions. This Maya brand seems to be big, and has some interesting earphones. The E12 is the winner so far in the 3 that I have. The ad for it is hilarious.

Added Movon Swing 2.

 

One of the better (if not best) aptX 4.0 in ears I've tried. Sounds better than the MeElectronics AF71, and has better range.

Added some Kanen impressions. The headphone wasn't that great, but these iP-808 sound really good. Monoprice IEM type value, but I think these sound better. Great find.

These Knowledge Zenith guys really know how to make an IEM. Just got in the KZ-A1, and it also sounds pretty awesome, especially for $15. If anyone knows which in ear it is modeled off of, I'd love to know. Seems like a Sennheiser type. Any ideas?

The bass... my god the bass is so deep and clear. These crap all over anything in the $15 price range. This may even be their own design.

Ok these KZ-A1 are really, really, really good for $15. More people need to grab these right now and verify what I'm hearing.

These look like KZ A1 but under a different name ..check it out http://www.ebay.com.my/itm/1PCS-Dasetn-Audio-In-Ear-R1-Diy-Project-low-bass-Professional-hifi-Earphone-/380666146587?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item58a1786f1b

Have bought from this seller before ..DIY PK2 ...actually quite good.

Come to think of it ...KZ A1 actually do look like Monster Turbine

That is a turbine clone, it is not the KZ-A1.

 

This is the KZ-A1, with a very good description (use chrome to translate)

It looks awesome in tungsten gray, and sounds even better.

Thanks. Once I started to hear headphones from brands like Somic, Superlux, Takstar, etc... I was hooked. They are so good, affordable, and no one outside of Asia really knows about them. Looking to change that. No one needs to be stuck with "Beats" when quality brands like these exists.

 

Most people think if something is cheap and from places like China, that they are "garbage". That is simply not the case. People just need to be made aware of the good quality that does exist.
