TG-38S is much easier to drive then Havi B3 Pro MK1.

PK1 sounds a lot better without the channel imbalance :D

 

It's still quite veiled, so I don't think it will end up near the top.

Probably, it'ss be around M760

 

It's amazing to me how a 16$ Earbell beats a 160$ PK1.

Both companies are Chinese - it's not like we are talking Sennheiser here, where you are paying for the name.

Build quality alone is an order of magnitude better.

😞... My pk1 sounds normal and awesome but I'm afraid of the durability 😃

I heard they need 1k hours of burn in 😃
post #635 of 1160

I'm on like 37/120 on my x5 with the tingo and 50/120 with the havi, on the galaxy s3 I was around 30% with the tg-38s and 50% with the b3. On the dragonfly v1.0 I am like on 6 on windows volume mixer thing with tingos and 16 on the havis.

So the probability that I get a defective unit is very high. I will still post the impression after 200 burn in.

but if your bass is still anemic after that - I suspect you have a defective pair.

 

I just tried again my TG-38s this morning after his first 16 hours of burn-in.

Same status as before, sound is the same as opening from box for now, bass is totally anemic (not punchy at all, very soft and poor), other frequencies also excepted still sibilant highs. Highs looks technical and pretty interesting although.

I'am wondering if I'am the only one here to think that TG-38s is more sounding "live", is this normal? it's like I'am watching a live concert in every musics I listen to. Maybe it could be due to my own pair.

Moreover it sounds to me a bit like if we put an EQ to "pop" thing by default, maybe because I'am used to "V" signature earbuds?

One another thing, is the sound power. I have to put each of my sources at a very high volume to expect a low/normal sound from these tingos. So I confirm I have the same problem as pokenguyen. Even my PK1 with 160ohms without amp are less demanding to get a normal volume sound.

Let's now still continuing burn-in process.

Well, given the tg38s a try, and it sounds slightly worse than my diy pk2. Needs a little more power as well. The bass is slightly less, although vocals stand out a little better. I'll give it a try with classical later. I think I am hearing a little more detail than dasetn's take on the pk2, but I'm not sure.

The bass does leave much to be desired. It's a more mid/hi centric bud which I was hoping for a more balanced bud.

At this point, I wonder of what I'm after is the ES100

If you want a more balanced earbud, Baldoor EarBell is the way to go.

I am looking for something more of like "the ultimate earbud" which does almost everything right. I was hoping the Tingo Croons would be that bud, but the reviews seem so mixed. After listening to them myself, I think they are a fantastic value, great buds, but I am unsure what you saw in them to say they are the king of buds in your ranking? 

 

The cable quality is FANTASTIC. I really like it. But is it as good as the Dasetn 760 and Dasetn M1? I have not heard those yet. 

 

EDIT: After playing around with the fit of the TG38S, I think a lot of the bass issue is the large fit that doesn't provide an ideal seal. I think the driver does have the power to pump bass but not enough for the average distance the shell is located from the eardrum.

 

Can someone who has a 'good pair' of Tingo Croons compare them to the Blox M2C? How do they fair?

It does fit me as well, but what I meant is that you have to push it very close to your ears for the bass to kick like I like it. Full disclosure: I am an Ultrasone Pro 900 and Denon DX000 user and think their amount of bass is ideal.
