    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I'm also using normal. I can hear the bass when there's not much around it, but if I listen to metal or busy tracks, drums and other instruments will drown it too much for my taste. For example I was just listening to this and the notes are clear on some other sets, not so much on Buds Pro...

    03 are some of the best fitting IEMs I have. I guess one man' s garbage is another's treasure

    Tripowin TC-01Universal IEM $49.00

    Got mine. First impressions, there is some glare and slight sibilance, highs are kind of unrefined, bass has enough quantity but lacks impact making drum hits pretty uneventful. Also sound is too in your head for my liking. All in all, another generic $50 IEM with nothing special about it, I...

    Final Audio Design Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Curious to see how these compare to FD5. Seems like these two are the new DD soundstage champions in this price range.

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    How do they respond to EQ? Can the bass reach cheat thumping levels without getting weird and more weight added to the midrange.

    Are you sure, cause to me 5k is darker than 4k by quite a bit.

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    Less bass than FH3? Glad I waited for the reviews. Still waiting for Fiio to come out with another IEM that does bass as well as the FH5 but with better tonality. That bass was spectacular.

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

    How is the sound on Nokia 8.3? Got a V60 recently to replace a V20 and I'm kind of disappointed. Previously had a V50 and sold it to go back to V20. Now the V60 seems even worse than the V50. The sound compared to V20 is a noticeable downgrade, flat, sharp and tiring. Also the Equalizer and DSP...

    Sony XBA-N3AP and XBA-N1AP — Impressions thread

    Yes, the H40, that's what I wanted to say. Had 3 of them cause the first two had problems. Great sound, I like them but they aren't a match for Sony's sound, especially bass. Also had some driver flex and the obvious build quality issue. Still searching.

    Sony XBA-N3AP and XBA-N1AP — Impressions thread

    Anything out there under $300 that can even touch N3's performance and quality with a similar tunning? Closest I've found was N40, but it's nowhere near as good.

    FLC Technology FLC8 and FLC8s Impressions Thread

    You can get another V20 for under $100, the choice is obvious. I had the S10 and V60 and gave them back. I am now at my 3rd V20, so far I couldn't find another phone that I like more so I'll keep this one for now.

    Kind of disapointing to hear abut the average soundstage. I'm still waiting for a good under $200 IEM with good timbre and excelent soundstage

    ISN Earphones impression thread. New ISN EST50!

    For what is worth, my second H40 set that I received as a replacement to my first set that died in two weeks, also died after a month. The DD one one side stopped working. After waiting for over 6 months to get this replacement due to COVID, I don't think I will try to warranty this again, I'll...
