    Chinese / Asian Brand Info Thread (On or Over Ear Headphones)

    Amazon was the vender, easy return, yeah the plastic seams thin especially on the a7, the a10 seams more robust, but chrome paint is fingerprint magnet. My ears fit in everything so I’m not a good judge of fit. Never handle a Mixcder, so I cannot compare them.

    Chinese / Asian Brand Info Thread (On or Over Ear Headphones)

    I have the fusion a7 and the a10 which has noise canceling, the a7 has more prominent and sometimes shouty midrange, rolled off treble, less bass, are very comfortable, get louder, good detail. The a10 is the second I’ve listened to. The first I sent back because it was so muffled. The second...

    Radsone EarStudio ES100

    One thing I appreciate about the es100 is that it doesn’t yell at you “low battery” every minute at 30% like some bt modules do. You can take it to 1% and get just a modest chime. Really optimizes play time. Good job!

    Earbuds Round-Up

    I just received the Smabot M1 and are really enjoying it. One of the flattest fr curves I’ve heard with excellent extension on both ends and lots of detail. Cleanses the palate after all these v-shape iems. It’s a breath of fresh air.

    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    I just got heavily into chi-fi this year and have accumulated a selection by now, which includes CCA C10, TRN V90, QT5, ZS4 amount others and enjoy them all immensely, providing more bang for the buck than my KEF and Sennheiser IEMs in the 70 to 150 dollar range. But when I put my Blon BL03s in...

    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    Didn’t think an iem could handle it, but I tried high voltage balanced on my es100 and the blon sure can handle the voltage much better than the V90, with the V90 distorting at 3/5th volume while the blon went to 9/10th with no distortion, didn’t take it all the way, but the carbon driver...

    Just a little hyperbole here, no but really they can go deep but I found that in this case getting a good shallow fit helps to expand soundstage, and this setup isolates like earplugs, further augmenting their quick bass. They are good to sleep in.

    Wow, these Nicehck B40s are astonishingly good, such a vivid soundscape providing space for even the most complex prog-rock to bloom with crystal clarity. Really nothing is missing. Finally something to give my monk OGs competition. I was very disappointed with the FAAEAL Snow lotus 1.0+ CE...

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    For me, by fitting the core of a smaller tip inside the core of a large tip, the tip stays higher on the nozzle, no matter how hard I shove them in my ears, providing excellent fit. These things are amazing!

    To aid in getting go fit on short stem iems like the blons, insert the stem of a smaller tip inside the stem of a larger tip, which allows it to stay up higher on the stem improving fit. Isolation is very good for me this way, ymmv of course. Also trim off stems to fit as sleeves at the 2 pin...

    CCA in ear monitors Impressions Thread

    For me, the C10 vs CA4 comparison goes like this: the C10s extra drivers in the middle really help it pressurize the space effortlessly, giving extra emphasis to the middle without muddling it up as what might be expected for such a budgeted attempt, really amazing how coherent they are, but the...

    CCA in ear monitors Impressions Thread

    I really really have enjoyed my C10s but recently picked up the CA4s and I think I enjoy them even more. The C10s have a thick, effortless sound with forward mids, punchy but thick bass and forgiving treble to provide for good extended listening sessions, where the CA4s thin out the mids a bit...

    Chinese / Asian Brand Info Thread (On or Over Ear Headphones)

    Note that the OneAudio headphones I have are the new Bluetooth Fusion A7 which have 40mm drivers vs the 50mm drivers found on their wired Pro series, no doubt changing the tuning. I find the Fusion warmly balanced with forward mids and not bass dominate. The ear pads on the Pro 30 and Pro 50...

    I would like to echo Bartig’s sentiments and say that I too are pleasantly surprised at the sound these OneAudio fusion Bluetooth headphones produce. They are not veiled muddy bass cannons that many Bluetooth phones in this category can be but are surprisingly balanced, with a slightly warm...
