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

    Help for Decent IEMs

    Something with a traditional barrel shape would probably be good for you if your ear shape causes problems. Basically comes down purely to the tips holding them in place with little interaction with the rest of your ear. A bunch of nice ones, without detachable cables unfortunately, would be...

    Greetings! Today we're checking out something special; Dunu's DK-3001 Pro. Back in 2017 Dunu released the original DK-3001 to positive fanfare. While I never had the chance to try out that model, looking back on old reviews it seems much of the original's DNA remains, although with the Pro...
