    Zero Audio ZH-DWX10 DUOZA dual dynamic driver iem

    What other recent IEMs do you have in the $150 range to compare them with? I have the regular Duoza and I don't think they are that good. I' d be courious to see how these compare to the original Duoza or other iems in that price range.

    BEST BUDGET EARPHONES THREAD- Chi-fi, Obscure brands and impressions sharing+PERSONAL RANKING LIST

    Fiio F9 Pro with eq to drop that 8k peak is still my pic over anything new including FH3, blon, yssi, etc. Superior technicalities, soundstage and perfect fit.

    Returning after 10 years! Which budget IEM's to buy in 2021?

    Blon 03 is better than everything in your list. FH3 if you want one step up.

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I'm also using normal. I can hear the bass when there's not much around it, but if I listen to metal or busy tracks, drums and other instruments will drown it too much for my taste. For example I was just listening to this and the notes are clear on some other sets, not so much on Buds Pro...

    Does anyone else find the bass guitars to be lacking on Buds Pro?

    Q701 impressions thread

    Basically used this guide https://imgur.com/a/gs0cRAB? , you don't need to remove the driver to access the gimble joints, though it is a lot easier to access if you desolder at least one wire from the headband. Use only plastic safe lube, silicone, PTFE etc. I had some plastic gearing lubricant...

    Q701 impressions thread

    Today I breathe new life into my old Q701 that I haven't used in years. Actually, I never used it much other than gaming. The sound was good but the uncomfortable bumps and constant cracking at every move made me want to pick any of my other headphones over it. Took it apart and used plastic...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    This is my experience too. After a few days of owning them I got to the point I now dread having to listen to any song with female vocals on it, the sibilance is just so grating. A shame cause everything else is almost perfect, they fit great, they don't sound congested as other TWS I've tried...

    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    Samsung AKG that came with the S10 phone if you can find an original pair. Easy to drive, good sound balance, big bass, better details and best soundstage. Found them better than both Blons or Final. If you want only one pair for both music and games, get the 03. Best for music and easier to...

    03 are some of the best fitting IEMs I have. I guess one man' s garbage is another's treasure

    Tripowin TC-01Universal IEM $49.00

    Got mine. First impressions, there is some glare and slight sibilance, highs are kind of unrefined, bass has enough quantity but lacks impact making drum hits pretty uneventful. Also sound is too in your head for my liking. All in all, another generic $50 IEM with nothing special about it, I...

    The discovery thread!

    After having just sent a $350 IEM back to China twice now in a process that took over half a year now just to receive another one with problems from a major seller I am done. I'm taking the loss and never buying another ChiFi unless it's sold by Amazon with extra protection plan.

    Intime SORA: Giant killer IEMs from Japan?

    Any driver flex on these? I only have the Sora Light 2019 and I like the sound, but the driver flex is so bad I can't listen to them at all, at the slightest move of the jaw or even head the sound drastically changes.

    I'm ready for my first disappointment of 2021, ordered the TC01.

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    Less bass than FH3? Glad I waited for the reviews. Still waiting for Fiio to come out with another IEM that does bass as well as the FH5 but with better tonality. That bass was spectacular.

    Best Smartphone for audiophile Part II (Updated: Jan 2020)

    How is the sound on Nokia 8.3? Got a V60 recently to replace a V20 and I'm kind of disappointed. Previously had a V50 and sold it to go back to V20. Now the V60 seems even worse than the V50. The sound compared to V20 is a noticeable downgrade, flat, sharp and tiring. Also the Equalizer and DSP...

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    These look promising. I was looking for something with a more open sound. I already have many great IEMs but except for E5000 and maybe Sony N3 they all sound pretty closed in. Curious how these compare to those and maybe the upcoming Final A4000. Also curious if they handle spacial positioning...

    Sony XBA-N3AP and XBA-N1AP — Impressions thread

    Yes, the H40, that's what I wanted to say. Had 3 of them cause the first two had problems. Great sound, I like them but they aren't a match for Sony's sound, especially bass. Also had some driver flex and the obvious build quality issue. Still searching.

    Sony XBA-N3AP and XBA-N1AP — Impressions thread

    Anything out there under $300 that can even touch N3's performance and quality with a similar tunning? Closest I've found was N40, but it's nowhere near as good.

    Looking for good all rounder over ear with fun sound signature for music and large and precise soundstage for games.

    I've been out of the headphone game for a while now as I've been using IEMs exclusively for a few years now. Recently I've dusted off the few headphones I have left, a Beyerdynamic DT990, AKG Q701, old Sony V6 and Philips X1 and was surprised at how bad they sounded compared to most of my...

    Kind of disapointing to hear abut the average soundstage. I'm still waiting for a good under $200 IEM with good timbre and excelent soundstage

    [FiiO FH3] 2 BA 1 Dynamic Driver Hybrid Earphones

    Had my FH3 for 3 days now and reached the conclusion it is just another overhyped IEM. Everything about it is average, there is nothing that stands out about it. Maybe just the build quality is above others. The bass is plenty but find it unsatisfying, listening to my favorite tracks, waiting...

    [FiiO FH3] 2 BA 1 Dynamic Driver Hybrid Earphones

    How's the bass on these compared to FH5? I like the bass on FH5, if these are any less in quantity or quality I have no reason to buy them.

    i have Fiio FH5 iems now

    From all my under $300 IEM's, there's only one IEM I'll re-buy without second thought if it breaks, that's the FH5. I like it better than Sony N3, ISN H40, Final audio E5000, E4000, Ikko OH10, Moondrop kxxs and a few others I have. But that's just me as it fits me perfectly and think the bass is...
