    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    I've been waiting for mine for close to 4 weeks already. I'll use them with a Topping L30. I'm curious to hear how different they are from the PMV PP. Probably similar with better tuning (no lower-mid treble veil).

    Jcally EP05 , JC10 Bio-cel Endgame $16 worth $1000!

    I found those with bio diaphragm: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001341576755.html I wonder if they are less of a crap shoot than the Jcally ones.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    I've ordered the Smabat M2s. I'm curious to read a comparison between the gold 150 Ohm driver and the super 100 Ohm driver. The super driver is considerably more expansive.

    GS Audio Impressions Thread

    Quick update on my SD9 after a week listening to them, about 20 hours (?), enough to get used to them and to burn-in my brain hehehe. -My first impressions stand, this is a neutral IEM with some treble (mostly upper treble) spiciness. Not a warm IEM. -The peakiness doesn't bother me anymore as...

    Thanks. I'm surprised that GS Audio recommended the SD9 as a bass heavy IEM. Just by looking at the graph, it clearly isn't. From my perspective, all the comments I've made about the bass are positive, I like neutral. Regarding the foam tips, I would not want to kill the treble that is past the...

    I'm looking forward to this. Old Hana or 2021 Hana?

    Tripowin x HBB 'Mele' - Impressions Thread

    Comparing products in different price brackets doesn't mean you expect the cheaper one to beat the more expensive one or be on par. It's all about references and having an idea of what extra $ brings to the table. Comparing isn't the same as expecting. I'm interested in a comparison between the...

    Tripowin x HBB 'Mele' - Impressions Thread

    Thanks! I forgot about this graph. I don't listen to music that has that kind of sub bass anyway. So between these IEMs, it's pretty much all about technicalities. Their tuning is so similar (including the new Hana and excluding the original one).

    Tripowin x HBB 'Mele' - Impressions Thread

    That's interesting. I've been eying the O2 for awhile, but didn't want to spend the $. Then Hana 2021 came to the market and turned out to be a baby O2... pinkish gold baby O2. There is also the Starfield and Aria that have very similar tuning. Basically, I'm interested in a more affordable O2...

    I have the same issue. This is bad practice

    I was planning to go with this one (A07 carbon + gold), but changed at the last minute to the SE12's (A29) faceplate and shell, without logo.

    So technically, it is 4 BAs. If I'm not mistaken, dual BAs in a single shell count as two.

    Good to know. A few of their IEMs have messed up descriptions, copy-pasted from other models and to fully adjusted. The GD5 has a fun look, I wouldn't pay $20 to re-shell it, especially at it's price point. I did pay to re-shell my SD9, but it's a more expensive model and is uglier than the...

    Can it be eaten? I bet it tastes sweet. This is the jelly-bean forum right? They broke their naming convention. GD5 is 4 drivers, 1 DD and 3 BAs. It should be GD4.
