    TRN impressions thread

    TRN STM budget hybrid just showed up today, and I am impressed. I forsee this will be a budget favorite IEM. Not a fan of faceplate but they did good on the tuning and driver quality. The bass is nimble, treble is exciting but not sibilant, vocals not too recessed, clarity, and staging is good...

    BQEYZ in-ear monitors Impressions Thread

    Yeah they brought that area to life on the Spring 2 over the Spring 1. I have had them since early July and my take is on the blog in my signature if anyone is looking for another comparison between old and new.

    CCA in ear monitors Impressions Thread

    I am really struggling with the CCA CA16, I will say I was ready to put them back in the box with the included eartips. For me the eartips really ruin these. Foams help but there are still some problems. Yes they are more balanced than the typical releases. Review is coming soon, doing my best...

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    By relaxed you mean the top end? It's a little funky looking but the Toneking Ninetails I think would fit that. It is enjoyable for long listening sessions and it has various tunings that actually do make changes.

    I can only speak of my experience with UPS, they will charge the greater amount based either on weight or dimensional weight. I usually find they charge me dimensional weight, so I try to ship things in a box just big enough to provide proper protection. Other companies that ship tons get...

    TOUR CLOSED - US Head-Fi Tour: Fearless Audio CIEM Tour - Starting May 2019

    Glad to hear they made it safely, I liked the S8P over the S8F as well, the S8P was my favorite of whole bunch.

    TOUR CLOSED - US Head-Fi Tour: Fearless Audio CIEM Tour - Starting May 2019

    Thanks for giving us the opportunity to hear these, I have passed them along to Jim723. As I mentioned unfortunately I found the Acme8 has a channel imbalance, the whole impedance is higher on the L side. I should have switched cables to make sure it was not a cable issue, but I forgot I was...

    If you have a Home Depot nearby they sell something almost identical to that small parts organizer. I have several, not just for IEMs. I also have a Stanley version that is a bit larger that fits the basic IEM cases...

    Another recommendation for KZ ED9, KZ EDR1 given that you are in Serbia and finding a Sony Mh755 and recable it might be difficult.

    Isolation figures are interesting because they never state at what frequency. Most likely it achieves 30db at 1khz, but the reality is isolation varies with frequency. Bass frequencies are hard to block. Here is an example of a Shure SE215 Here we have the ETY ER4XR

    I have several 2 pin IEMS that static electricity from the cable is still transmitted to the IEM.driver. The shell of the IEM is metal in both cases.

    From the outside they look like the BGVP DS1 or HIFIEAR F30-even offered in the same 3 colors. I have no idea if the HIFIEAR and BGVP are the same, but they definitely look like they come from the same build house.
