    @tikue666 - I don't have the A83 in my possession any more, but from memory, the IT03 gives a more neutral take on the sound, with a similarly emotive midrange but less of a V and more emphasis on sub-bass foundation. Overall, I prefer the IT03's more neutral style of signature over the more...

      Fidue A83 – initial impressions   I must admit, until recently I was not massively aware of Fidue and their offerings, bunching all of their IEMs together with the mid-range A71 and A65 models in my mind as some nice looking but middle of the road Chinese IEMs not really worth looking into...
