    Mainland China does not have a good track record of honestly reporting outbreaks like this. Hong Kong has a much better track record, though it was a Canadian AI algorithm called BlueDot that first reported this outbreak...

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

    I'm in the US, and in my experience sellers on eBay have gotten me goods faster generally speaking than AliExpress. Like you mentioned, ordering direct from Penon is faster. Amazon is a lot faster of course (and when I order from Amazon stores in other countries, there's a shipping fee but it's...

    I've heard of it in passing in these forums. Not sure if the "DD-Audio Store" on AliExpress is connected to Linsoul, but they also carry it. I haven't found any info out about the company that makes it. "Bad Guy Good Audio Reviews" covered T-One in two of his youtube videos, I don't recall him...

    I just got them so I haven't had more than 6 hours of ear time with them, but I'm pretty impressed with the Auglamour T100 (the best Auglamour I've yet heard). They use single 8mm graphene drivers in a 3D printed epoxy resin shell, and for $20, they are a good deal IMO. I pretty much agree with...

    Some quick impressions about the Jade Audio EA3... technically proficient, bass is good, midrange is a little recessed for my liking, and detailed but fatiguing treble to my ears during extended listening. The silicone ear tips I've tried so far haven't tamed the treble enough (I don't like the...

    All the balanced cables I've bought from AliExpress were wired fine, and in some senses balanced wiring is simpler (each channel has it's own ground, rather than tied together in a common ground, which in a non-balanced cable could be done in the headphone cable jack, or the Y-split, or in the...

    Thanks for the review, my pair is still en route (I ordered them without much to go on). FYI I've recently seen the T100 is selling for as low as $22 on eBay and AliExpress, seems like it's a good value.

    RBH - HP-2 ULTRALIGHT BERYLLIUM HEADPHONES

    The official product page says, "THIS HEADPHONE HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED JUNE 2018", so looks like just the aftermarket for these now. I'll likely be selling mine in the near future, or PM me if interested (I just have too many headphones, need to cull the herd!)

    I actually really like the ZS7, but not with the stock ear tips. If you're interested in a balanced sound, try wide-bore tips on the ZS7. JVC Spiral Dots (and Spiral Dots++) are nice, though the bass will still be a bit elevated. I have the Tenmak Whirlwind tips on my ZS7 right now, and they...

    BQEYZ in-ear monitors Impressions Thread

    Monoprice doesn't make products itself, they have things contract-manufactured by other companies and then branded by Monoprice under their private label (so I wouldn't call what Monoprice sells as copies). I believe I was the first person who pointed out that three of BQEYZ's earphones are...

    Auditory hair cells are specialized for specific frequencies depending on their location in your ear.

    The moon landings happened, there has always been lots of evidence, and it is very sad that the internet does such a good job of amplifying wrong ideas and bad information (flat earth, pseudoscience, fake cures, sexism, racism).

    I would take a look at the Takstar ML 750 if you want on-ear. About $50, and while I don’t think anyone here has them or reviewed them, on the internet I found a positive review of them in Spanish (I read the machine translation).

    My last tracking update was on Dec 15, and it was still in China then. I wonder where it is right now...
