    Moondrop in-ear monitors Impressions Thread

    I have now completely given up. Still no resolution in sight for a simple DOA cable. Ordered a replacement cable from Amazon and really enjoying it, shame about some simple shipping issue (damaged box, DOA cable) is hampering the whole experience. Currently using it with the SednaEarfit...

    Moondrop in-ear monitors Impressions Thread

    My Moondrop Variations experience have been ruined by HiFiGo after sales service. Currently they are requesting multiple video for a simple DOA cable and takes at least a whole day to reply. I am on day 6 now! With no solutions in sight. Have anyone dealt with HiFiGo support before? Is it's...

    Most comfortable IEMs you've owned

    FitEar MH334SR >>> Sony EX800ST / Final E500 / Periodic Audio Be Sony IER-M9 / FiiO FD5 / UERR Roughly in that order, with FitEar massively ahead, M9 would be up to the EX800ST tier if it doesn't give me tip selection issues with the air pressure build up

    Sony IER-M9 impressions thread

    Woah, the new WF1000XM4 foam tips are great on the M9. Shame they are a pain to get hold of!

    USB-C Sucks. 3.5mm Is Real Sound!!!

    It's all down to consumer choices... If it's that important, it will be actively harming sales, then why did LG mobile division go under? Most people simply don't care and have already switched to BT headphones. My new phone have a great 3.5mm jack with microSD card support but BT audio is...

    let's talk custom iems in 2021.

    If you are able to, FitEar MH line might be worth a try. The MH models are definitely warm and mid centric. The sound is fine for me but the highlight is how comfortable they are over my UERR. It's not even comparable in terms of comfort IMO.

    Sony IER-M9 impressions thread

    One of the unexpected quirk of the M9 for me is how much power it needed for volume. Totally didn't expect maxing out the volume and still didn't get enough when listening to Youtube stream or some quieter recordings. And I listen at pretty low volume already!

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    I do also find the stock tips lacking. Took me a size down (not available on FiiO tip sizes) on the smallest Final E tip to bring out the best of the FD5. For me, I still find the technicalities a bit lacking but now perfectly acceptable at the price point. Comparably better than the Periodic...

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    After trying all the tips and the ones I have spare (Spiral Dot ++, Final E, Some unknown wide bore) The stock FiiO tips don't go small enough, the Sprial Dot++ is too soft to keep a very good seal, the random wide bore just doesn't work with it. The smallest Final E really helps with the...

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    Comparing raw detail on a single DD IEM, the Final A8000 is still a clear league above the FD5. But depends if you like the tuning or not. I will rank them like that Details: A8000 >> FH5 >> Periodic Be > EX800ST
