    After Disco, Funk was reborn. One of the Funk greats from the early 80's was this guy. One of my favs is Love Gun.

    Still rockin my ZS10 PRO's. Tonight, I'm listening to this. The ZS10 PRO works great with this type of music.

    You can call them what you want. I call em the Godfathers of Disco. Still love this band even after 40+ years. Listening to a modest setup consisting of KBEAR KS1 (using a XINHS balanced 2.5mm cable, connected to my ES100 via Bluetooth to my Samsung S20 smartphone, running LDAC). Fun music that...

    Thanks for this. You just made me remember my favorite Rod Stewart song. Listening to this now: Before that, I was diggin the newly released Tragically Hip EP. RIP Gord Downie.

    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    Foams are certainly more expensive overall and need to be replaced more frequently for hygiene reasons. It's true that silicones last longer and can be cleaned more easily. I've got about $75 invested in silicon aftermarket tips ( mostly Spinfits) as well as included silicones that came with all...

    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    I use foams because they do a great job of conforming to my ears...and they don't give me sweaty ears like silicones. When using silicones, my ear canals become moist and my iems don't stay in place. There's no rigorous excercise involved here; it's just me sitting and listening to music for...

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

    Looks like the same that I bought two of from XINHS last month. First one was for my new KZ ZAX in QDC 2.5 balanced format. Second was for my new KBEAR KS1 (bought as an impulse purchase, due to its low price), in TFZ 2.5 balanced format. Both are well made, and I love how XINHS included a case...

    I use my DQ6 with my Radsone ES100, connected to my Samsung S20 phone via Bluetooth using LDAC. SQ is excellent, imho. ES100 also has EQ abilities and I DO also take advantage of that.

    Let us know what you think of them. Personally, I think they are a great set and punch above their price point. I still enjoy mine alot. It all depends on the type of music you listen to and your preferred sound signature. I still love the ZS10 PRO; even though I've got the ZAX and DQ6.

    Blon in ear monitors impressions thread

    Yes, totally agree. The TFZ/NX7 connectors fit best with any BLON. They are more square than the more rounded shape of the QDC connectors. Tbth though, I hate how all these manufacturers seem to think they need to reinvent the wheel. If I could only have one; it would be a simple 2 pin that...

    Agreed. I wouldn't have been able to continue with the hifi hobby, if not for Chi-fi. In fact, I lost interest and stayed away for over 10 years, because of the high prices that western companies were charging. I'm so happy that I can again afford to buy great sounding stuff. Honestly, it was...

    Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    Compared the ZAX to the DQ6 tonight; along with the Fearless S8P. The S8P has excellent separation but I find it a bit lacking in bass impact. Both the DQ6 and ZAX do bass better, imho. Still, the S8P has much better separation and smoother details. But, this is an expensive set. I'm enjoying...

    TRN impressions thread

    Poor attention to detail, I guess. I have a hard time getting into TRN due to continuously poor QC. Cables that aren't properly soldered, iems that stop working (or just don't work at all) after a short time, bluetooth adapters/dac amps that don't connect...I'm not cool with wasting my money on...

    The Qudelix-5K thread

    I appreciate all the comments, guys. Thank you to all who have posted their opinions on the differences...especially on the sound signature of both the 5K and ES100. Personally, I like the AKM Velvet Sound dac chips in the ES100 (as well as the AKM 4490 in my Fiio Q1MK2). When I read from others...

    Listening to the DQ6 now, using a Tripowin Zonie balanced cable, via 2.5 balanced output from my ES100 Dac/amp. Source is Samsung S20 ( with Bluetooth set to LDAC) with Spotify. The DQ6 is sounding great right now with this music:

    The Qudelix-5K thread

    I've got a Radsone ES100 and also use it around the house. I'm constantly moving around, so a desktop setup doesn't work for me. Hate having to remove iems or headphones whenever I need to go outside or move anywhere around the house because it means I have to stop listening to music. I like...

    The Qudelix-5K thread

    This is great news, as I've been eying it for quite some time. I'm going to buy one within the next month or two, as soon as I get my tax refund.

    Yup...and sounds great too! I've been giving them a lot of eartime lately. So much so, that I've been neglecting alot of my other favorites; like the ZS10 PRO and BLON BL03. These are a great sounding set. I'll do some comparisons soon; but for now, I'm just loving this 3 DD set! It's like...

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    I'm curious about how much it cost you to do that? I see from your profile that you are located in Romania. I live in Canada (ie. North America). For many of us here, the cost of shipping an item back to a Chinese/Aliexpress seller...is like 35 to 50% of the cost of the item. Many people just...
