    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    Since there are a lot of mentions of the SendaEarfits on this thread, I thought I would draw your attention to my offer on the Best Tips thread (https://www.head-fi.org/threads/best-iem-tips.626895/page-46#post-15418853). I will be ordering some of these from Japan and have offered a sort of...

    Nichicon FW caps for subwoofer amp power supply?

    TL;DR Are Nichicon FW series caps appropriate or the power supply of an amplifier-integrated power supply? Hello, I need to recap the power supply (left side of the PCB in this photo). Are Nichicon FW series caps appropriate for this? I am a novice with this, but as I understand it, "audio...

    Radsone EarStudio ES100

    Thank you so much! I have tried tweaking a few things to prevent the disconnection, but I don't think I ran across this post on Reddit. I think I had set something like "do not let Stamina Mode stop app to save power", but the other settings you have mentioned may be (probably are) different. If...

    Radsone EarStudio ES100

    Latency... Okay, so I didn't notice this at all when watching Amazon Prime Video on my Roku TV and using the ES100 as a Bluetooth source from Roku "Private Listening" running in the Roku app on my phone, but latency is very noticeable when watching Hulu. Is there any solution to the latency...

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    I was totally confused when I first searched for these too! The names are very similar, and it seems that Flare's main business is earplugs. You have pictured the earplug replacement tips, which is all I could find when I first saw their IEM tips mentioned in another thread and went searching...

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    Thank you for your expertise on the Flare Audiophile tips! I have ordered them in sizes M and L. I am also considering SpinFit tips for my tip rolling kit. I don't have any yet, but I am planning to order the cp100, cp145, and cp155 in M and L sizes. What are opinions on the double flange tips...

    BEST BUDGET EARPHONES THREAD- Chi-fi, Obscure brands and impressions sharing+PERSONAL RANKING LIST

    I'm dubious about the benefits of ANC. I'm prone to think that passive is better. Say, if you have some background noise that is 95 dB and you have some other sound that is 95 dB to cancel it out, I think the hair cells in the coclilea will still be damaged over time, even if the brain doesn't...

    BEST BUDGET EARPHONES THREAD- Chi-fi, Obscure brands and impressions sharing+PERSONAL RANKING LIST

    Well, speaking of being old (or young) and how that can affect one's taste in enjoyment of music (and preference for certain IEMs), I am jus' 'bout 41, and I have tinnitus and some loss around 6000 kHz in the left ear. If you are young, please protect your hearing! I swear - please wear earplugs...

    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    Nice work on getting a proper setup on your BL-03! Can you tell me about Flare Audio Earfoams? This is a new name to me, and I did a Google search, but could only find earplug tips made by them. Do they make IEM tips as well? How are they different / better / worse than Comply and generic foam...

    CCA in ear monitors Impressions Thread

    I may have been unintentionally unclear in my post above. The "flip tips" I referred to are KZ Starlines turned completely inside out, not what is pictured here. You can see the "flip tips" in my posts on the BLON thread or at the link to my o-rings sale listing above. The flip tips have been...

    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    Thanks, @Slater ! Who knows who the actual manufacturer of the cable is? It's branded "HiFiHear". I got it because it supports balanced input and I think it looks good with my "brown" BL-03.

    CCA in ear monitors Impressions Thread

    Folks, I am ready to share some initial impressions of my CCA C12. I've started off listening with a Radsone ES100, balanced output with a KB Ear balanced silver plated 16-core cable. The tips I am using are the stock medium tips (not the KZ Starlines because I "flipped" those to use on my BLON...
