    ZiShan Z3 Hi-Fi Player Thread

    Thanks @maxxkur. Does the Z3 AK4493 also have dual power supply? I use it to drive a Topping NX1S, which is a high impedance. No problems so far, but if it improves the sound quality, I might try it. If you have owned or listened to the AK4493 version, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on...

    ZiShan Z3 Hi-Fi Player Thread

    Hi @maxxkur thank you for sharing the photos of the stock unit, as well as your mods. Would you mind explaining what changes were made and why you made those changes? From the photos at least I can see you replaced the two electrolytic caps with two resistors, and replaced two resistors with 0R...

    Sony budget earphone discussion thread (MH750, MH755, MH1C, EX300, etc)

    Thanks @brianforever for verifying. :ksc75smile: They are from a local online marketplace, olx.co.id. He seemed to be a private seller, I tried looking for the ad but it seems they've been sold out. I see you're in Singapore, if you're familiar with a little bit Indonesian, you can browse...

    Sony budget earphone discussion thread (MH750, MH755, MH1C, EX300, etc)

    Hi Slater, gentlemen, I got a pair of MH750 which was advertised as "buds only" with "cut cable". I had hoped to receive the two buds only, but turns out the cut cable is also included. It's a J-cable with mic. I don't know why they do this, I think they could be factory rejects. I have no way...

    Sure, I can confirm that @furyossa has posted the correct items below. Please note I didn't get them from AliExpress, so I can't comment on the sellers. Hope that helps. :ksc75smile: Thank you my friend. I really like this tiger cable, very well behaving. Easy to solder, very soft and pliable...

    DIY Earbuds

    Thanks @furyossa For now I let it burn in some more, and it is improving. I'll keep your advise in case I got the itch to mod it in the future. Could it be the correct "timbre" and the natural mids that make it easy to listen? As I said, in the MX500 housing it reminds me of a single driver...

    DIY Earbuds

    Hi Friends, glad to see everyone still active building stuff and helping each other to get into this dangerous hobby. :ksc75smile: I bought this 300 Ohm driver, after thinking back and forth, finally decided to pull the trigger. I put it in the usual MX500 housing, removed the foam on the driver...

    I put a driver from my local seller, it's called "Warm Bass" driver. The blue shell, if I remember correctly the inside is black, so it must be painted. So what new driver are you getting, @robar? :ksc75smile:

    DIY Earbuds

    Thank you my friend. With all this collective knowledge, I'm really thinking we should create a DIY earbuds wiki. Like photos and specs of drivers, brief impressions, etc etc. What you said makes a perfect sense, sorry I got carried away with my detective work. A local shop has many drivers, and...

    Cheap drivers make great giftbuds! :ksc75smile: I’ve made two of these and gifted them to friends. So far, I’ve found that the top of the list for most people are “bass” and “mic” hehehe..

    Do you think this is the same driver? Similarities: - 64 Ohm - White blob - Red dot - Foam covering the holes - Similar PCB traces - Same pattern on the face, which is slightly different than the pattern on the 19-21 driver, for example. These are salvaged from VE Monk+ :ksc75smile:

    Not weird at all! I’m also in the same situation, wanted to check out the N52 300 Ohm. Hoping to hear more from @Themilkman46290 Thanks guys!

    ZiShan Z3 Hi-Fi Player Thread

    Sounds good. The Z3 looks and feels nice when stacked together with my NX1s, makes for a great portable combo. I've also learned that it's quite picky when it comes to micro SD card, with less than class 10 cards, it's very buggy and not pleasant to use.

    Warm welcome to you! This is one of the nicest, most friendly thread among many audio forums I've joined :ksc75smile: Enjoy your stay and enjoy your DIY earbuds journey. Agreed, and thank you @robar for being helpful as always. The 64 Ohm titanium with blue dot, is it this one...
