    Softears - Discussion & Appreciation

    Hey @HuoYuanJia, do you have any info about this new "mystery" IEM? I got this from a Weibo user: plain translation from chrome: I know "moving iron" means BA when translated and "moving-coil" means DD, but "one ring" bugged me a bit.

    Most reviewers seem to use the 3.5mm variant connected to an Apple dongle + adapter for mic and headphone out. Example: crinacle's rig
