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

    Has anyone else gotten the FEN-2000 lately and can confirm this? I spent some time yesterday comparing the TRN V20 with the Yersen FEN-2000 and really prefer the FEN-2000. Enough that I was planning on getting a 2nd pair. Granted its under $25 with shipping but I'd hate to end up with bad IEMs...

    Would anyone actually confuse the $50 KZ ZS6, even in green, with the $1000+ Andromeda? Is anyone selling the ZS6 for hundreds of dollars claiming its an Andromeda product? Is KZ anywhere in their product literature or advertising claiming or even hinting that they're the Andromeda? Since all 3...

    I found that the sound of the ZS10 was extremely dependent on the fit and seal. You'll notice in both reviews the comments about the large size and blunt, lipless, shallow nozzle. I suspect that at least some of the differences in opinion as to their overall quality and sound is a function of...

    Hidizs AP60II - youngest in HiRes family but worth every cent

    Just got a deal email, $89 direct from Hidizs + free earphone. In case anyone is interested but didn't get in on the $100 Amazon deal. https://www.head-fi.org/threads/the-deals-discussion-thread-read-the-first-post.692119/page-1733#post-14227579

    Hidizs AP60 MKII for $89,shipped from wherever they are located on the Pacific Rim. I'd guess China but could be wrong. For those not able to get the Amazon deal and it includes a pair of their EP03 earphones whatever they are. Good just for a week...

    The Deals DISCUSSION Thread (READ THE FIRST POST!!!)

    I'm convinced that their business model is to be absolutely bare bones with any individual processing of their products. They get a pallet or whatever quantity container perhaps of a product. They then create the appropriate web pages to sell it at what they feel is a decent profit. When someone...

    I'll second the suggestion for the VEClan ones if you want just a cheap cable. $5 for the cable, $3 for e-packet to USA. Obviously for the price you're not getting superior jacks or connecting wire. I have a number of these in various orientations. Warning they describe the adapters backwards to...

    Not to be that guy but… Wouldn't it be quite possible that the-store-that-shall-not-be-named-nor-linked©®™ (tstsnbnnl for short :ksc75smile:) would be aware that being linked to them would hurt sales and so claim that they don't make the product even if they do? Personally, I'd be way more...

    If you do that with the slightly smaller rounded tip end and fold a large silicone ear tip over it you'll have your very own Symbio ear tip.

    A bit too expensive for me, actually almost everything on this thread is, but that combination really does look good.

    OK, its a deal. I'll pick up a box next shopping trip since as a single male the only thing my oven is good for is reheating pizza and storing pots and pans so I don't have any on hand. Then I'll rescue them from the back porch and stick them in a bag of baking soda and report what a week or so...

    Timing is everything. I had an Amazon order with one of those add-on items that won't ship unless you spend $25+ and I was at 20 and change so I added these to my order. The only thing I can tell you about them so far is that they're still on the back porch, assuming they didn't blow away in the...

    I really hate to pee in the pool on this one but… Nowhere in that post is there mention of SENFER or etc. Could you modify that linked post to explicitly list the brands that aren't to be mentioned? I is practically impossible to follow the rule, for example not to mention SENFER, if the post...

    IDK @HungryPanda could have spent the extra $30 to get purple glitter bodies with transparent purple backs and a MMCX cable. Nothing says that you can't look good taking one for the team. :scream::japanese_ogre::smiling_imp:

    I ended up going with the large KZ Starline tips. These are the standard tips included with KZ products for the last year or so. Their large tip isn't much larger than their medium size, its much more a ML than truly large. I find that the narrower bore brings the mids and highs into line with...

    Ditto. Since I went back to version 3 from the first release of version 4 I've never come back to a dead player. That happened regularly with the version 4 firmware.

    Oooh, now I do like the idea of chocolate smelling IEMs. But these things, ewww. I can't walk down the laundry isle at the grocery store because all the strong scents make me physically ill in just the few seconds it would take. So these are sitting on my back deck as I'm hoping they will air...

    I like the one I think of as the Sydney Opera House spaceship design IEM. Its the model 2 (?) that goes on sale in the Gearbest deal thread here every so often for $2. Each time I look at it then decide I can't buy it because shipping is $3 or 150% the cost of the product. I was raised in a very...

    Yikes, apologies. :scream: I'll attempt to get it correct in the future. I'm pretty good about using the indefinite plural whenever I can just to avoid that issue. Trouble is what they said just looks so wrong when you're quoting a single post.

    Wow. Are they really showing that the crossover point between the DD and BA is at 5 kHz? Yikes why even bother with the BA at that point? Out of curiosity, which Senfer model is that?
