    BEST BUDGET EARPHONES THREAD- Chi-fi, Obscure brands and impressions sharing+PERSONAL RANKING LIST

    Honestly, I so relate to this quote... It was all hunky dory for me these few months. But now, I'm already suckered and tempted to get Shanling UA3, Dunu Titan and a bunch of KZ/CCAs. Had last purchased CRA and was on a 70 odd day hiatus 😅😅

    I also have exact same sentiments. BA10 is absolutely a gem of an IEM and by far my favourite IEM made by them. It's a perfect allrounder that's truly masterful with so many genres of music. If AS16 is anywhere close to the BA10 I'm pouncing on them at the first available opportunity!

    As a fellow AZ09 Pro user, I'd say just ensure that your modules have some warranty coverage because I received two modules and both of them had a failure in left module where it slowly stopped charging and got frequently disconnected. I'm just sharing my experience just as a word of caution...

    I am facing this weird issue with my AZ09 Pro where they automatically get shutdown and disconnected after 1.5-2 hrs. They restart again but somehow don't get connected automatically. Is anyone else facing this issue? I feel it's due to poor battery and maybe poor connectivity as well...

    I agree wholeheartedly with this!

    Best Smartphone for audiophile Part II (Updated: Jan 2020)

    Fiio UTWS3/5 both are extremely good options to have hi-fi audio with convenience. I agree with you on this. Future is to go either with BT DAC/Amp or with TWS modules whether folks like us like it or not. Because BT audio will have better innovation over next 5 years as opposed to smartphones...

    CCA in ear monitors Impressions Thread

    I agree with the point wide bore tips work exceedingly well with CRA. Bass gets dialled down and mids begin to shine even more. Like it's very close to Heart Mirror which is my bonafide benchmark for a neutral IEM especially in the sub $100 category. It's just mind-blowing that CCA has finally...

    Anyone has both the KZ AZ10 and AZ09 Pro? I'm planning to get one module for regular portable usage. Are differences between them significant, if so then what? Because in my country, I'm getting AZ10 almost $10 cheaper than AZ09 Pro. Appreciate your views on this. Thanks in advance.

    CCA in ear monitors Impressions Thread

    CCA CRA is by far the best KZ/CCA I have heard OOTB. I don't feel like changing anything. It fits like a glove to my music preferences and sound signature is refreshingly mature and very close to neutral. It's like an upgraded version of CCA C10 and C10 is my favourite CCA IEM. I might still...

    CCA CRA is by far the best KZ/CCA I have heard OOTB. I don't feel like changing anything. It fits like a glove to my music preferences and sound signature is refreshingly mature and very close to neutral. Probably the most fun neutral IEM in my collection. I might just get one more as a spare...

    The discovery thread!

    If it sounds anything like the OG NCO then it's a winner and a keeper.

    I think we should wait for the annual @baskingshark post about brilliant deals. 11.11 is usually weak if you don't have spare coupons to boost the discount

    This season I'm a lot behind the schedule but Ousama Ranking is the pick of the lot for me. I'm sailing in the same boat as you. Want to drop shows but somehow they just reel me in

    To add even KZ EDX sounds same as NRA. Now that's a 4x difference in value yet marginal to no sound improvement at all. The best or the worst thing about KZ is that they make you feel stupid as well as elated for giving a product that is very consistent across all price points.

    The TWS + Neckband + BT Cable Adapter Thread

    Yes, I think I did as I was not active on this forum for last 3-4 weeks. Sad to hear about your lemon. Hopefully the new one is good. Yes, in terms of overall package, I think it's head and shoulders above anything that's available. After my BT20S Pro box went bust, I'm looking for a good...
