Dasetn/Tingo/Baldoor earbuds Reviews and Impressions - Page 68  

post #1006 of 1160

I burned in and listened to Tingo TG-38s with 2 foams for more than 1 week, the sibilance is reduced, vocal is not as thin as before, but I don't like it more than Dasetn M1. Its extended and sparkling treble is fun to listen (and that's all good about it), especially guitar sound, and some vocal sounds crystal clear, but some high vocal can have sibilance. I still prefer M1, while sometimes take TG-38s out to try.

 

About soundstage and imaging, it is not as wide and deep as Havi B3.

 

I lent both over to my friend who has all Yuin and some Blox earbuds. He was not interested at all, stating that some fake Yuin can sound much better than those TG and M1.

 

I sold both and use Havi B3, there is no reason for me to keep them at all.

This is my thread and therefore it is my job to inform people about them.

It is not your job to constantly "balance" others opinions. Do you really have nothing better to do?

Do you get stuck like that every time you are disappointed with a purchase or did something happen to especially offend you?

Do you think you have absolute power to decide what is "clearly" good or not? Your opinion has no more weight than anybody else's.

Different people have different opinions - please accept that.
 

As the owner of this thread I think you are being irresponsible by not including also negative/neutral reviews on the 1st page.

you should take into account most people will not actually go through 67 pages before deciding if to go for them or not. 

That's why the 1st post by you is so crucial and should include also other reviews deviating from your own line, and this is precisely because:

"Different people have different opinions - please accept that."

Other's opinions should be also allowed in this thread.

 

This is gonna be my last post on this subject, I'm not trying to pick up a fight , I do have better things to do.

post #1008 of 1160

After a two-week vacation break from headphones, I listened to the Tingos again a few days ago at work.

While the highs are still a bit overemphasized for my taste (and I'm as much a treble- as a basshead), I do have to admit I have been liking the TG38's sound more than before and found I was able to listen to them for a while without tiring of them.

A good sign I suppose.

I have had my trigger finger ready to buy M760s, M1 and EarBells, but with 5 pairs of earbuds and only one pair of ears, I will refrain for now ;-)

Ok, assuming you're meaning to imply 99% of buyers of earbuds like these on Aliexpress, I really don't think that is anywhere close to true.  I'm not going to point out the varying products if you meant 99% of buyers on Aliexpress in general.  We all know you're a big fan of these earbuds, you've made that quite clear.  And more power to you, you found something inexpensive that you love.  I personally prefer something else Dasetn's done, but that's just me.  But basically telling someone you both have the right and responsibility to inform people of how you feel about these earbuds, and then basically tell someone else they don't have the right...  that is really insulting.  I'm certainly unsubscribing to the thread at this point.  I just hope you calm down, because  you're taking all this too far.

Please read these sentences carefully:

How did you get from this an implication that 99% of buyers like them?

In 30 days Jenia1 posted 50 times in this thread, mostly about how much Tingos suck.

That's borderline trolling.

Luckily, he decided to stop, so hopefully we can get back to constructive discussions.

 

I got burned on a 300$ JVC FXZ-200 last year, posted about it maybe twice in the relevant thread.

Why would anybody hate a 15$ earbud so passionately?

What genre of music do you listen to? I found that their sound signature really comes to life and does justice to older music with less bass, less drums, and more guitars and vocals. I listen to a decent amount of hip hop as well as the oldie classics (Simon&Garfunkel, Lead Zeppelin, Beatles, etc), and have found that the Dasetn M760 does hip hop and rock much better. However, the TG38S really sound good on songs with lots of highs and vocals since the 38S is crystal clear and airy in that regard. If you're a "modern audiophile" (listen to mainly newer songs, eletronic, hiphop etc) then the 760 will be an easy upgrade no question. It depends on your library.

 

I have currently 4,004 tracks in my music library playing in shuffle varying from oldies, folk rock, guitar solos, jazz to alternative rock, acoustic, modern classical, pop and some trance. all plays generally well with the 38S. I also have those tracks that you mentioned above and they sound so good with the Tingos. You're right about it sounding majestic with guitars and vocal tracks. I have not gone it through a thorough comparison against the TC100 and OK1 but will do once it is fully burned-in. Hopefully the M760 and M1 will arrive soon and will not suffer the same fate that the 38S have gone before (I purchased 1 38S from Dasetn that did not arrive at all). I will try some pop music with it and see how it fares.

You can try using 2 foams on it.

Inderdaad for me burn in of this range reduced the weird treble, lucky it did no reduce the treble itself since that is one of the strong points. I did not allow brain burn in and even without it the treble is enjoyable. The top end of this bud is it strong point the lower end, although better than the tc100, sadly not. And even though the top end of the Blox be5 and even mx985 might not be as good those buds to my ears are more balanced buds. However if you are a treble head or like treble rich music than these are 38s are a steal. I however am looking forward to the new top end bud Blox is supposed to release sometime. Also contemplating to buy another mx985 as backup since they are not produced anymore. Not sure how the new Blox will compare.

If you are looking for a more balanced sound, go with EarBell.

Why not the M760 getting any recommendations from you BenF? Just curious.

M760 is "mids forward", EarBell is "balanced".

At least compared to the TG38S they sound much more balanced to me, but I admit I haven't listened to the Baldoor Earbells.

so, i pick this thingy up on local audio store. the improvement is amazing.

post #1018 of 1160

Looks good. However, it basically transforms the earbuds into IEMs, which I for one am not looking for in a bud.

Nevertheless maybe worth a try, they're available from amazon (in Germany as well).

 

Thanks

post #1019 of 1160

It doesn't seal like IEM does. the sound still leaked out. but not much like the standard foam does.

the improvement is on bass side.

but,

 

the soundstage become smaller.

 

and the comfy is top notch.

The Aliexpress store lowered the price of Earbell to 19$ from 20$.

Dasetn is still a dollar cheaper though.
