    BEST Sub-100$ BUDGET EARPHONES - Chi-fi, Obscure brands and impressions sharing-REFERENCE LIST

    Sounds like slightly below standard worldwide shipping time... when apocalypses aren't happening anyway. Also Zeos apparently summarised it as a balanced yet VERY intense listen... which sounds an awful lot like how most people who own it describe the QKZ VK4. I wonder if it lines up with...

    The discovery thread!

    I wonder just how many IEMs would benefit from this filter and not just Moondrop ones... Too many to count I assume.

    Random Thoughts (Headphone/Earphone Related)

    Posted it before but I assume this may be a better thread to do this. I mentioned that I found in the behind the scenes of the Fearless Y2K FAQ that one of the questions is something like. Why didn't he pick a DD for a woofer. To which he simply answers: Because it wasn't available. So I can...

    Best IEM tips?

    Does perforated eartip flanges sound like a bad idea? Edit: I should probably take a wild guess that vents are always a job better left to the housing. But maybe I could get some surprises.

    So is this what the BL-03 was made for then? I guess that and listening while doing other probably non music related tasks. My only personal analogy seems to be that of a 3840x2160 resolution IPS TV that's great for watching movies and videos, probably also for graphics related work due to the...

    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    WHat would be the result of inserting a porous material into the BL-03's air intake? Would it be the same as just using the stock cable, or would something unique happen?

    I imagine Final E500 if it didn't roll off the subbass, which I think it's none of the above? I do find the subwoofer pretty confusing as well. I know subwoofers can be used to shake a room (maybe an entire house too). But I'd assume the subwoofer's entire point is to be able to hear the...

    I think I mentioned this before but mine spikes at 5kHz and 10kHz again if i remove the mesh and don't use my Dekoni Bulletz.

    ... also probably not the most relevant thread for this but given the awkward subject... Apparently when my sister first received my BL-03 she tried it to make sure it wasn't defective or had to return it for any reason and. Turns out she liked the sound of it over the mpow flame2 to the point...

    Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    If you need it I'd personally say give it a try. At least it's not hardwired, so if the microphone dies, it won't take the IEMs with it. I'd imagine looking for a replacement will be tricky and I can't really help there. Forgot to add too. NEVER figured out how to answer a call with an inline...

    I prefer it without because every headgear/cable with an inline microphone I've owned fails microphone side first. Could be coincidence for all I know however.

    Wonder why not calling it ZSN X. Were they afraid of it being mistaken for the ZSX?

    The discovery thread!

    The TL DR of it would probably be that it sounds bass boosted U shape to my ears. The best I could answer the longer answer is, combine the BL-05's 330Hz and under and BL-03's everything else and you get what's potentially my favorite tuning ever. Regardless the BL-03 showed me just how...

    Reminds me of a reddit comment saying that out of 30 IEMs or so, his BL-03 is his most vintage sounding headgear of his collection. Never knew what vintage sounding means, but I guess it means being easy to listen to regardless of how poorly mixed the track is? Does that sound extremely atypical...
