    BEST Sub-100$ BUDGET EARPHONES - Chi-fi, Obscure brands and impressions sharing-REFERENCE LIST

    I dont get why so many throw spinfits on iems. They work well for bass shy ones and, in general, are rarely used in my collection (on vivo x800 theyre great). For c12 and blon 03 i found the spinfits (signle and double flange) to increase midbass bleed and decreased seperation and soundstage...

    BEST Sub-100$ BUDGET EARPHONES - Chi-fi, Obscure brands and impressions sharing-REFERENCE LIST

    I was surprised by the size of the box and of the IEMs themselves when I received the C12. THEY ARE TINY! On videos and pics they appear huge, but not as large as the ZSX. I skipped those because I feared they wouldn't fit. It turns out, I was strongly mistaken. The C12 are anyway, the most...

    Received CCA C12 and blon bl03 amongst other aliexpress goodies :) They were really fast this year...sales not that big for IEMs though. Quick impressions is that low budget is definitely on another level since only 2 years ago. Too early for proper impressions, but so far C12 and blons complete...

    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    Ear guides removed using tiny scissors, on the blon's stock cable (my nails hurt...15 min of pain) and the KZ silver/copper one (takes 30 seconds due to the soft plastic: small incision, and pull! eassssyy!). Definitely worth it as the Blons do well worn-down, but with the tips I am using...

    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    Blon stock cables fit fine in my case, and I used some tips similar to KZ whirlwinds/turbos in shape (but on the softer side). Perfect seal, although bass is really strong if the vent is blocked by a tight seal. I will be wearing these cable down as soon as I get my cables. A quick test does...

    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    The stock tip that was on the blon are long and thin, which will mostly create a seal for people who use S size tips. They are out of the ordinary is what I meant. They could have fitted a larger size tip which would correspond to the norm in terms of diameter, and have the length for a deep...

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    What's the added value of adding another of the same BA? Curious. Can it be programmed to do something differently or what? I kno that several multi BAs/DD have several of the same drivers...but for what purpose? "Thicker notes" is what immediately is recalled from review comments, but why? I...

    Nice. Although I have many things in my ali basket, I think I might just for the blon. For 11/11, the discounts don't seem that great anyway for many of my products. Was going to fetch an earbud in the sub 50-70eu but I think it might be risky without much research, and out of the numerous TRN...

    iBasso IT01 a fun IEM. Single multilayered graphene driver. !! 99 USD !!

    The left side keeps cutting out and it appears to be due to the gorgeous IT01 cable as cheaper cables do the job. Has anyone been able to fix a broken mmcx cable? I can imagine maybe using tweezers to reshape it?

    Thanks for the advice but I am actually a bit bummed because it is the original IT01 cable that is causing the problem with the left side :triportsad:. The cheap mmcx from my **** works fine.

    It does seem that the cable is the culprit...Any suggestions on fixing it? :(

    Out of a bunch of IEMs and earbuds in my bucket, I'm going to limit myself to the Blon-03. The discounts aren't that outrageous anyway and I am unsure of venturing into the earbud arena. Listening to the IT01 after weeks and months of the **** puts things in perspective: it's pouring gold down...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    After going through some reviews, I think I will settle on the toneking to200 (driven by lg v35). Is this ok? I am looking for some bass but mostly soundstage. Besides the Monks, I have no experience with earbuds but would like one for 11.11 :)
