    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    Is Penon answering anyone's emails? I'm trying to return something to them for a few weeks now but getting no email back after filling out the return form on their site. Just curious if they are ignoring my request or it's a complete halt of their business due to coronavirus, if that's the case...

    They sound like a cheap chi-fi IEM would've sounded a few years back, piercing and sibilant, you're better off buying the old ZS6 as it is more bearable. So many better options for the price, I see not reason to buy these.

    I'm surprised the Samsung AKG earbuds that come with the Galaxy phones don't get more traction around here. I own way too many flavor of the month under $100 IEMs and the Samsung earbuds are still my go to for many things.

    Final Audio Design Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Well, after 1 year of light use my E4000 got a lot quieter in the right channel. Has anyone else experienced this? Tried different cables, different sources, swapped the channels around, placed them in a dry spot, nothing.

    ISN H40 impression thread.

    Looks like H40 would be more on my liking. Curious about the bass quality though, is the larger 13mm better than the 9mm, or are they on the same level?

    ISN H40 impression thread.

    Has anyone compared the H40 to DK2001? Which one would be better for metal with a bit of wow factor, especially in the drums?
