    Toranku's Thoughts and Reviews (and target EQ filters!)

    Do you have any general recommendations for a set that has a good (preferentially balanced rather than V) tuning and exceptional resolution?

    thanks. Sounds like a smooth tuning rather than super energetic or reference. Can you describe the overall tuning? harmon? Df? V? W? Etc.. So Zodiac is up in the range of brand name totl’s?

    Tansio Mirai Impressions Thread

    So it seems like the overall sense is: Lush mids, present treble, but not too sparkly? The graph has the mid-treble rise start a little higher than usual, maybe around 1.5k. Was wondering what that does to the overall signature. How is the technicalities, like resolution and imaging? Debating...

    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    On my S8F, i also heard “driver flex-like” crinkle. Initially i thought it weird because it’s all BA. It might be just pressure building up in my ears, especially since Fearless shells are hollow. A8, S8F, and Roland all fit super deep and tightly in my ear (i use a wide tip that allows me to...

    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    Interesting. I dont see any vents on the Roland so Im surprised at how they went about figuring out the pressure situation. Can you give a little more description between the Roland and Lancelot? Next purchase for me is going go be BGVP V12 or Roland or Lancelot. Thanks

    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    Ok, I went back and forth with 3 cables and confirm. The stock Fearless cable (the new silver ones) gives me a congested feel. Sound seems to open up more even with a $30 Tripowin cable. But still, the level of detail and treble extension seems just so so. Not as much as I expected

    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    Sadly, it's not the first time there was some confusion in a Fearless order. Happened with my previous S5T order also. I also think they used the B-2 (wine red) instead of B-3 (transparent pink), but they claim it's not the case so... Tonally...I dunno. It kind of sounds like what everyone...

    Got my S8F. I ordered the B-3 color (Transparent Pink) thinking it would come out like this: But the actual product was more like wine red: Soundwise... I don't get all that detail/treble hotness that everyone was talking about. In fact, details fall short of the Moondrop KXXS or iBasso...

    BGVP discussion thread DM7/ DM6/DMG and NEW BA series

    I also have iT01s and HungryPanda is right... iT01s is brighter and stage is little bit wider. DMS is warmer and open (maybe thanks to the vents?). DMS has more sub-bass but can be uncontrolled. Vocals on iT01s compared to DMS is drier while DMS is a little more sweeter. But it can use a 2-4k...

    I had the S5T. Had Sonion bass driver. But I do not recommend S5T. It had really great bass and great low male vocals, but overall sound was mushy and I ended up selling it. Would only recommend to people who ONLY care about bass or instrumentalists who use on stage (had good instrument...

    Can someone help me figure out the album art situation with the ZX300? I used the Sony Music Center for PC and it was good to update all of the missing file info's as well as the cover art. But after spending 3 hours getting everything looking good on the PC program, when I transferred the...

    From a Japanese supplier's website, they say it takes Fearless Audio one entire day to make each side of the ACME. That was from ~January, before the hype and the sales increase.

    Mid-Range DAP Recs? (2019)

    Hello, I'm looking for a mid-range (new or used) DAP to use with IEM's. There's just too many options, especially if I'm also considering used DAP's for that price range. Any recommendations? I'm mainly concerned for the sound quality. But streaming app, DSD, and Balanced output would also be...

    Sony NW-A50 Series

    For DAP's under the $300 range, would the Sony a55 be the best option in terms of the sound? Is there a sonic difference between the Zx300 and the a55 that warrant the price difference? Trying to find a decent sounding DAP in the mid price range, but there's just too many options...

    When I ordered mine from Linsoul, I also got a paper slip with something about $30. But when I checked my bank, no additional charges were made. And in Korea, if there are import taxes, they actually hold the package at the airport until you call and pay them, which didnt happen for me. SO, my...

    I have a small dumb question. Does switching the right/left cable with the right/left earphones change the sound/quality? I realize that it's going to change the left and right channels of course, but when I switch the sides, I hear some details better. Can't tell if one of my ear is worse...
