    Earbuds Round-Up

    After reading the many positive reviews of newbsound 32pro I’ve placed an order with @irv003 and received the earbuds last week. I must say I’m very impressed after listening to them extensively. These are amazing earbuds. They’re full and natural sounding with the best bass I have ever heard in...

    The discovery thread!

    I have to chime in on the NX7. To my ears it's a fantastic iem. I'm 49 years old so maybe this so called piercing treble can no longer bother my 'older' ears. NX7 has great textured bass and very good separation. The soundstage might indeed be small but the placement of instruments is very good...

    FiiO’s Upgraded Bluetooth Amplifier BTR1K: Qualcomm QCC 3005 BT chip, BT 5.0 and aptX /aptX LL/AAC supported, RGB light, NFC pairing, Type C and USB DAC

    Vsonic's GR07 Classic is also marvelous with BTR1. I'm starting to think that Lenovo Vibe X3 even with a dedicated dac, really sounds inferior. GR07 has never sounded this good. So now I have with Pinnacle P1 two iems that got a new life.

    Radsone EarStudio ES100

    Volume on the phone is at max, volume on the amp (and that's Fiio's BTR1, will buy ES100 as soon as it's available in Europe) is on a moderate volume depending the iem. I only use Pinnacle P1 with the BTR1. P1 is a notoriously difficult iem to drive (impedance 50ohm sensitivity 96dB) but the...

    BEST SOUND VALUE THREAD- ChiFi & portable audio bargain, best IEM, DAC-AMP, dongles list, etc

    I've been lyrical in the past (thanks to @Nymphonomaniac) about Zhiyin Z5000. I even bought a second pair (being an iem-hoarder and affraid of losing my first pair) and I can assure you that the second pair sounds as good as the first one. As far as I'm concerned I also cannot detect any...

    MEE Audio Pinnacle P1 - $199 Dynamic Driver Flagship *Reviews 2nd Post*

    After neglecting my P1 for quite some time, she gets my attention again with the fiio btr1 I bought a month ago. This is a great gizmo and apparently delivers enough juice to make the P1 shine which my phone and even fiio andes was never able to do.

    Brainwavz Audio B400 4-Way Quad Driver 3D Printed IEM

    Can you search on Spotify or other streaming services for following album: Prokofiev symphony 2 Karabits, The first track 6 minutes in the glare becomes very apparent on my pair.

    Brainwavz Audio B400 4-Way Quad Driver 3D Printed IEM

    I'm listening mainly to classical music and there's unfortunately a glaring effect somewhere around 2-3000Hz especially with flutes. This bothered me enormously to the point that I wanted to return them. Am I the only one with this issue? Anyway, last year I bought the Ostry tuning tips and...

    BEST SOUND VALUE THREAD- ChiFi & portable audio bargain, best IEM, DAC-AMP, dongles list, etc

    Still loving my Z5000 to death. Mind you I mainly listen to classical music. I appreciate a lot the naturalness of these gems. Probably the best purchase I ever made. Remarks about Tesla-magnet losing their power make me anxious. I was thinking about buying another but I'm having second...

    Brainwavz Audio B400 4-Way Quad Driver 3D Printed IEM

    Yes, indeed this is also a problem with my pair. I listen mostly to a lot of orchestral classical music. When flutes and piccolos in particular play high pitched notes they hurt my ears. It seems as if there's no control on this frequency range (somewhere from 2k to 4k Hz) and this results in a...

    BEST SOUND VALUE THREAD- ChiFi & portable audio bargain, best IEM, DAC-AMP, dongles list, etc

    Unfortunately I dislike foam eartips very much and I don't need more bass. But as you're so convinced I'll give them a try with foams. Maybe I'll become even more a fan. This Tesla-driver technology is quite impressive and convinces me again and again that good old dynamic drivers are the way...

    Massdrop x Noble X Universal IEMs Review / Preview

    Sounds very promising. Looking forward to your view on this earphone. I really hope it will be able to change the rather negative atmosphere around the Noble X somewhat. Thanks!

    Massdrop x Noble X Universal IEMs Review / Preview

    I think I will also cancel my order. The urge to have a Noble product is big but when the iem is not even better than 1More's Triple Driver then I see no point in spending that much money. I have Mee's Pinnacle P1 since two months and this earphone easily surpasses the triple driver. Where does...

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    They're all very good and were on heavy rotation at some point during the last half year. As I said I homed in slowly but surely on my preferred sound signature (and this will probably change even more as I gain experience), I started liking earphones with a balanced sound with good clarity and...

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    I've never heard the 4in1 so I cannot tell you. I have a few hybrids in my possession and while they are quite good, I feel they are not as coherent in presenting acoustical music as a single dynamic driver does. It took a lot of listining to come to that conclusion as at first you're baffled by...

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    I've been buying quite a few earphones lately, slowly but surely homing in on my preferred sound signature. As far as I can tell, for 18$ you can't find a better earphone for classical music or acoustical music in general. If you want a balanced sound signature with good clarity, separation and...

    Ocharaku Donguri

    At the instigation of @kevingzw I bought the Co-Donguri. You can find his review over here: http://www.head-fi.org/products/ocharaku-co-donguri-iem/reviews/16745. He got some slack for writing a very positive review of an iem that he sold the next day. I must say he was spot on in his review...

    MEE Audio Pinnacle P1 - $199 Dynamic Driver Flagship *Reviews 2nd Post*

    It is only since about a year that I started actively investigating iems. The portability and the miniaturisation are such a joy and the constant improvement is breathtaking. In the course of last year I bought several in-ears from cheap (Joyroom 107) to relatively expensive (Nuforce Primo 8)...

    Curious to know if you'll like the sound with turbo-hifi switched off or on. Good luck with this phone. I'm very happy with it.

    Best Smartphone for audiophile

    I have Lenovo Vibe X3 since three weeks. Quite happy with it. I can recommend the phone without any hesitation considering the price.   Phone charges in about 2 hours. Camera is not so good according the reviews but I'm quite happy with it. I must say I don't take many photos though. The...

    Best Smartphone for audiophile

    I got the Lenovo Vibe X3 since last Monday. Am I happy with my purchase? Yes, I am. I have not compared the phone with all possible combinations I have in my possession but I can say it's much better than my LG G3. Bass has more authority and is more defined. Treble is more extended and at the...

    1more E1001 triple driver in ear headphones review

    I've been buying quite a few sub-50$ iems lately. I feel I'm ready now to go beyond now as so many exceptional iems are being released... :-)   Yesterday after seeing the 1More Triple Driver on AE in promotion with Easy, I bit the bullet. With my coupon of 7$ I got for the Easy M2 debacle it...
