Haha, thank you! biggrin.gif

Though I do expect to stick to KZ for a while, I also have a pair of pistons and plan on getting a few of the other slightly more expensive models later on.

I have no idea how they sound but they look pretty darn good! But seriously, the price of IEM's is only going one direction, and fast. I love my new Vsonic GR07, but I'm sure in 12 months there will be IEM's even better sounding with more robust build for much lower cost.

 

Thanks for your post.

They do look decent for the price. Though some of the overall build quality looks a bit questionable. I'm also rather amused all of them are labelled as "Noise Cancelling" as opposed to "Noise Isolation". So, any brave soul willing to try them out?

I tried using mistertao.. Then when I entered the site in their search and clicked on the item, after displaying the item briefly this message replaces the item display:

Dear Customer,

All products related to keywords "ic" are banned to sell.
Please try to search other products you like. Thank you!

 

Mistertao team.

 

Any idea why that is? Thanks.

 

here's a screenshot:

they are from one seller, and he seems to give every iem the same title... I think I'll go with the one with pretty braided cables :)

 

 

 

There's some other interesting stff from the same seller:

 

Final audio ripoff for 150$ :eek: I don't know what kind of sound it will deliver, but it better be damn good :|

There's also this - Tennmak DIY M8K. quite interesting design, very good looking cable and not a bad price imo...

The description is interesting:

 sound quality reach UE900 TF10 W4R IE80 SE535 level

around 2000 good commens within one month in Chinese Market 

Sound quality:
bass type, a little taste of sound rendering. More suitable for listening to pop, rock and dance music that nightclubs. Sound field control center, not overflowing. There is a very unique place to go when playing the bass is not implicated in the high frequencies. The sense of hearing will find that the bass is not a diaphragm vibration generated, as if there is an independent control of the diaphragm bass. While the high frequency is quite clear not harsh, Relax greatly enhance the sense of hearing. There is a very warm feeling, unlike any other headphone bass, but for heavy to coax the brain, is the bass is not enough! High frequency is also quite good, listen to the human voice when quite clear. High frequency resolved fairly well, even the singer's voice, and some kind of trembling voice can distinguish offal. Very realistic, can express an emotion singer accurate to 100%
 
Cable is single crystal copper which is more better for signal transmission

 

 

sounds  good to me :D

 

 

And there's this cute little DIY thingy - http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/DIY-E2C-in-ear-HiFi-earphone-earbud-headphone-for-MP3-free-shipping/1183804_2034343828.html

 

the cables though, it's pure porn :D would gladly have one with red/blue cable combo...

 

 

speaking about cute:  http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/smallest-HiFi-ceramic-in-ear-earphone-earbud-headphone-for-IOS-Andorid-system-smartphone-MP3-free-shipping/1183804_2040143314.html

 

Tiny tiny ceramic housing, microdriver placed in the nozzle and iphone or android controls. ceramic is sexy, especially in black...

 

and lastly there's this: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Unique-Special-Cute-In-Ear-Metal-Earphone-Earbud-Headphone-with-Mic-and-Remote-for-MP3-Andorid/1183804_2031842632.html

 

not to sure what to think about the design. it's also a microdriver placed in the nozzle, but this one has an additional chamber at the back and truth to be told, I really like the Gold/black combo...

 

now someone please get all of them so I have some reference to which is better... :D

Some of the designs are definitely... different. Given that they're mostly sub $50 headphones, I'd say don't put your hopes too high hehe.

yeah some of them are downright strange... but that 9$ one with detacheable cable still looks good to me... :D

post #9401 of 35472

^I wonder how much a replacement cable would cost though. 

post #9402 of 35472

 

A little search yielded this lol. The comments were interesting.

you just get another one and there you have it, two sets of iems with one cable :D

post #9404 of 35472

So seems like some of them are German headphones. Though they seem to be designed for style over function, but I can be wrong.

My final impressions of the Huawai Honor.


 

I'm not going to do a full review as these were just not a pair of iems I could sink my proverbial teeth into. I gave them a ton of 'burn in' time, both while listening and just playing alone. They were used almost every day at work (call centre, great for isolation testing), and with a wide variety of music. I tried to disregard their price and enjoy them as best I could for what they are.


 

Positives:


 

- As noted in my initial impressions a while back, the build quality is awesome. Nothing negative to say here. They feel very solid, from the housings to the in-line controls, to the plug and strain reliefs. There are no molding artifacts on anything, and all aspects fit together snuggly and with clear attention to detail. That goes double for the unique packaging.

- The cable is very sturdy and looks great. The chin slider is an example of one done right; it slides without too much friction, yet stays in place without issue. Probably the best cinch I've used to date.

- Sound has a nicely weighted feel to it. Bass kicks with authority and vocals are adequately forward.

- They are very comfortable, but with only average isolation.

- Great for vocal-only recordings (try out Aesop Rock's 'Live on 89.9 fm Night Train' recording...low quality but still sounds great).


 

Negatives:


 

- The greatness of the cable is offset by the horrible microphonics. The more I used them, the less tolerable it became.

- The cable between the y-split and buds is wayyyyyyy to short. I have a pretty tiny noggin and I can't wear these with the cable around ear, unless of course I feel like having it cut into my chin and jawline. Fix this issue and the microphonics problem is more or less negated.

- The soundstage is too congested. As a result everything often sound jumbled and muddy. Its too bad, because with less-busy songs you can tell the treble extension is pretty decent, again the mids are good, and the bass is allowed to shine. Improve the soundstage and I could learn to live with the microphonics.


 

* I found the bass doesn't extend as deep as I like, but for someone who prefers a more balanced approach it would probably be fine, or maybe even a bit too bass rich. *


 

Overall I don't mind them, but the issues they display just kill the overall experience. I did truly enjoy them at times and with certain songs (like Evil Nine's Crooked, one of my fav songs), but at other times they are just flat out bad (as with King Crimson's Starless and Bible Black).


 

As a result of their fantastic build quality, sharp design, and overall acceptable sound, I would have no issue giving these out as a gift to someone who is more concerned with how their iem looks, and how long it will last. These have some initial wow-factor too; not something you often get with a product costing $12.


 

6/10 sounds about right. Keep the sound quality as is, expand the soundstage, and improve the cable issues and they would easily be an 8 (in comparison to other iems in their price range that I've tried).


 

** As a side note, I've ordered the KZ EDse and KZ Micro Ring. Let's see how they stack up to the Honor when they arrive. **


 

Since I didn't bother with a full review of the Honor, here is my full review of the Don Scorpio Bass Colour:
