  1. TFZ Series 1

    3.00 star(s)
    MBC/ PINOYMAN's review: The TFZ series 1 Iem. Id like to thank Christopher Gatchalian for lending me his pair unit for the purpose of this review. Shell: clear in smoke black. Cable: quality is thick and strong. It can survive as a daily beater from rolls and throws. Strain relief is small, but well made and implemented. It gets the job done keeping the cable safe from cut and breaks. Y splitter: no volume control, size adjuster. SQ: Tonal balance is warm but clear. Bass hits hard and deep, mibass is on the fun side. It can sometimes sound...

The company is ORIVETI. the iem’s name is PRIMACY.   ...

    I would like to say my deepest gratitude to bro sherwino for hitching me in his group buy...without him i could never get my hands on this beautiful thing - the ZO. this is the story of the ZO... what is the ZO? well, to me, its like a boost. a boost not only in volume but in frequency, in bass, and unheard details/details that are buried in your music. its a small device that uplifts the experience and bring you to another league of FUN. I strongly believed that this item is not just an amp. well, from there ill try to...

      this is the FIRST IMPRESSION ON THIS EARBUD, BELOW DOWN IS THE FINAL REVIEW...   enjoy reading! rock on!!! pics: the review: sennheiser mx980 is the top of the line in the mx series. all released this year including the mx880, a downgrade series for $79, an earbud considered to have a good bass. i love earbuds. it doesnt make my ears itch in hours of use. and i hear everything around me. unlike in iems, it blocks all the noise, and sometimes makes my ears itch. hearing it all doesnt make me feel like stupid...

    hey everyone! i have this long review in my views regarding the pannys. i got the earphones today...in me. and they are just as amazing as my ue700! but in a different way. they are colored for me. there's a lot of echo...air moving...and vibrating inside...something heavy... not the bass...but the overall music. the heavy thing is going to smash into your ears just like that!!! BAM! pushing air and sound into your ears. for me, its bad. its like messing with some of the instrument's sound...but its not that very bad...but i really...

    4.50 star(s)
      this is a review of the famous sm3 and a comparison to the eq7.       PICS first:         INTRODUCTION: the ortofon is one of the best among all top tier iems. to me it is one of the hardest iem to explain. hardest to describe. the sound is just very hard to capture. and turn it in words. its warm. its cold. its bright. its everything.  and that everything is the ortofon eq7 and your music. what makes the ortofon eq7 stand out among the rest is its tube like sound and very sweet...
  17. Ortofon e-Q7 Ear Canal Headphone

    4.50 star(s)
      ORTOFON EQ7. THE REVIEW: Build Quality: (you be the judge) thick cloth covered cables. hard plastic for the jack and y-splitter. thin rubber cable from splitter to phone. machined aluminum housing. classy and expensive looking black box with very nice to touch foam covers inside. black leather case for the eartips and iem filters. some japanese instruction manual. SONIC CHARACTERISTIC: This iem is popular by having the TUBEY characteristic, with excellent definition in vocals. I have decided to take some word...
