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

    I always wondered since it's inception. What if NiceHCK took their x49 and added a DD that only does bass duties Penon Orb style? Does that sound like a potential sub $30 tuning champion?

    Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    I don't really know the other cables, but suffices to say I'm more surprised at how high the resistance of the C8 is than how low the resistance of the... FAAEAL? I've never seen the Zonie being measure, but suffices to say I'd ROFLcopter if it turned out to have a lower resistance than the C8.

    So even living in main land Asia doesn't save you from waiting possibly months on an AE? Edit: Well I guess a double post was gonna happen eventually, huh?

    ... For all I know this discussion is my fault with me asking why would you prefer hybrid over all BA or viceversa.

    Best IEM tips?

    Does perforated eartip flanges sound like a bad idea? Edit: I should probably take a wild guess that vents are always a job better left to the housing. But maybe I could get some surprises.

    I always wondered why Crinacle seemingly laments the fact that Fearless didn't give him a DD to work with for the Dawn if you look at the FAQ of the behind the scenes of the Dawn. I mean I'm sure someone will inevitably tell me drivers don't matter of whatever, but I can only assume even 64...

    So I guess the to do list on buying a BL-03 so far is: 1. Buy a pair of sednaearfits (no idea if I'm supposed to buy standard or light however), then keep buying and trying tips from there. 2. Replace cable with any generic 2-pin or a TFZ connector to not just have a cable that won't tug your...

    Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    I wonder. I read one comment on another thread claiming that out of a collection of about 50 cables, his most flexible cables were mostly 16 core cables. So I'd assume thinner cores usually translates into a more flexible cable even if it ends up thick due to core count?

    Well I hope no one takes this as an offense. If anything this is more of a jab at myself, makes me question if I'm an audiophile or not. 5 years ago, I overclocked my laptop's monitor to 90Hz, and sure enough, contrary to popular opinion, the difference was noticeable almost immediately and...

    My BL-03 shipped with a scratch on the faceplate, so I assume imperfections like this is what that kind of painting is for.

    I have no idea, I'm guessing I'm looking at the housing from the inside and maybe the driver is far too inside to see from the nozzle.

    When mesh is removed, does the BL-03 look brass colored on the inside? Or just mine?

    The discovery thread!

    The TL DR of it would probably be that it sounds bass boosted U shape to my ears. The best I could answer the longer answer is, combine the BL-05's 330Hz and under and BL-03's everything else and you get what's potentially my favorite tuning ever. Regardless the BL-03 showed me just how...

    Also while at it, why buy based on one review? By the time I bought the BLON BL-03 myself, I read enough about it to fill a 500 page book. Although this could be considered paranoia at this point.

    So after a month or so of using and trying a dozen or so of mods to the BLON BL-03. Well if what the tuner intended is that it sounded warm U shape, It's pretty much perfect, I have absolutely no complains there maybe other than it rolls of earlier than I'm able to hear in the treble with a...

    Maybe someone could tell me why DD+Full range EST wouldn't work. The more i search the more unlikely the odds of a full range EST being available seems however.

    Best IEM tips?

    I loved my Bulletz, but they expand instantly now. So it seems like I'd better get some good silicone replacements otherwise I may be asking to bleed money with foam tips.

    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    I wonder if. Would someone pay $60 for a BL-03 that has a tripowin zonie and customizable nozzles and filters? Edit: I mentioned not too long ago Crinacle failed to measure flat from 400Hz-1kHz. Now I noticed he showcases it with stock cables AND eartips. Who knows maybe no one has pointed this...

    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    So after 1 month or so of using the BL-03. I found that I really like the bass and mids performance, but the treble is kinda all over the place, spiking at 4kHz-6kHz, then at 8-9kHz, then a smaller 13kHz before rolling off at 14.5kHz. Dekoni Bulletz flattens the spikes although at the cost of...
