Baldoor e100, Tingo tg38 and Tc100 in shopping cart and still waiting for some more inputs to hit the "purchase" button  :veryevil:

Tg38s is freaking epic natural and detailed 😱... Add to a dx90 for the most awesome separation imaging and resolution 😇

To me the tc100 sounds more thicker more balanced and flat than the th38s. The tg38s sounds more dynamic to me, although it sounds thinner than the tc100 it is more fun and engaging to listen too. However that was after ~55 hours burn in for the 38s and 25 hours for the tc100. Still have to compare them proper. The tg38s can sound a bit edgy the tc100 not. Cannot say yet one is better than other.

Baldoor "EarBell" E100 review:

 
This earbud caught my eye because I thought it was the most beautiful earbud ever.
I bought it purely for its looks, didn't have high expectation for the sound.
 

 

 

 

 

 
Build Quality:
When I received it, it looked more plastick-y than in the pictures, but still very beautiful.
It also came with 3 pairs of doughnut foams - a rarity these days.
The build quality is great, cable and plug are very good.
Cable is totally non-microphonic, best cable I ever seen.
 

 

 
Fit:
They look quite large, but I didn't experience any fit issues.
Due to their shape, they can't be pointed directly into the ear canal, but even angling them a little makes a lot of difference.
 
Sound Quality:
I listened to it out of the box - and was pleasantly surprised. It was clear this would be a top contender.
I've burned them for a couple of days, and enjoyed them for the last few weeks.
 
Baldoor did a great job tuning these - very balanced and clear. They sound practically identical to TG-JL1.
At first, I thought it was another incarnation of TG-JL1, but it seems to have a single diaphragm.
I would say that these are 95% of TG-JL1. Not sure if I could tell them apart in a blind A/B session.
Compared to Yuin PK1, the EarBell has a bit more bass, lusher mids and less bright (although well extended) highs.
 
Price/availability:
I couldn't post the review sooner, as the price on Amazon and eBay for US head-fiers was 15-16$ shipped,
but non-US members would have to pay over 32$ shipped. I have contacted the Aliexpress seller, and he lowered the price to 19.99$ shipped.
 
There is also the version with a microphone at 40$ shipped, but I don't know if it sounds as good.
Introduction of additional circuitry often decreases SQ.
 
Conclusion:
At 15-20$ (depending on your location) this is an excellent balanced earbud - a very rare occasion.
Most earbuds in this group sound veiled and boring - but not E100.
 
 

My current earbud ratings are:

TG-38S = TG-JL1 > E100 > BE5 > M760 > M1 >= ANV3SE > PK2 = ANV3 > M2C > PK1> M3 = AP8

Or in terms everyone can understand

16$ = 31$ > 20$ > 95$ > 26$ > 15$ >= 100$ > 80$ = 70$ > 50$ > 160$ > 13$ = 12$

When you say balanced and clear, do you think they might do well with classical?

Absolutely.

They are especially good with piano, almost as good as M760.

Hmm, any idea how the tg-38s handles classical?

It does a decent job, but TG-JL1, E100 and M760 are a better choice.
