    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I'm also using normal. I can hear the bass when there's not much around it, but if I listen to metal or busy tracks, drums and other instruments will drown it too much for my taste. For example I was just listening to this and the notes are clear on some other sets, not so much on Buds Pro...

    03 are some of the best fitting IEMs I have. I guess one man' s garbage is another's treasure

    Tripowin TC-01Universal IEM $49.00

    Got mine. First impressions, there is some glare and slight sibilance, highs are kind of unrefined, bass has enough quantity but lacks impact making drum hits pretty uneventful. Also sound is too in your head for my liking. All in all, another generic $50 IEM with nothing special about it, I...

    Final Audio Design Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Curious to see how these compare to FD5. Seems like these two are the new DD soundstage champions in this price range.

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    How do they respond to EQ? Can the bass reach cheat thumping levels without getting weird and more weight added to the midrange.

    Are you sure, cause to me 5k is darker than 4k by quite a bit.

    FiiO FD5 - 1DD Flagship from FiiO

    Less bass than FH3? Glad I waited for the reviews. Still waiting for Fiio to come out with another IEM that does bass as well as the FH5 but with better tonality. That bass was spectacular.

    Best Smartphone for audiophile Part II (Updated: Jan 2020)

    How is the sound on Nokia 8.3? Got a V60 recently to replace a V20 and I'm kind of disappointed. Previously had a V50 and sold it to go back to V20. Now the V60 seems even worse than the V50. The sound compared to V20 is a noticeable downgrade, flat, sharp and tiring. Also the Equalizer and DSP...

    Sony XBA-N3AP and XBA-N1AP — Impressions thread

    Yes, the H40, that's what I wanted to say. Had 3 of them cause the first two had problems. Great sound, I like them but they aren't a match for Sony's sound, especially bass. Also had some driver flex and the obvious build quality issue. Still searching.

    Sony XBA-N3AP and XBA-N1AP — Impressions thread

    Anything out there under $300 that can even touch N3's performance and quality with a similar tunning? Closest I've found was N40, but it's nowhere near as good.

    FLC Technology FLC8 and FLC8s Impressions Thread

    You can get another V20 for under $100, the choice is obvious. I had the S10 and V60 and gave them back. I am now at my 3rd V20, so far I couldn't find another phone that I like more so I'll keep this one for now.

    Kind of disapointing to hear abut the average soundstage. I'm still waiting for a good under $200 IEM with good timbre and excelent soundstage

    ISN Earphones impression thread. New ISN EST50!

    For what is worth, my second H40 set that I received as a replacement to my first set that died in two weeks, also died after a month. The DD one one side stopped working. After waiting for over 6 months to get this replacement due to COVID, I don't think I will try to warranty this again, I'll...

    How much did you pay for reshell? Do those guys take online orders? I am seriously considering to buy another pair of N3 for this.

    FiiO FH5 - Quad Driver Hybrid In-Ear Monitors || Knowles Balanced Armature Drivers

    Has anyone else experienced a reduction in highs with the FH5? I've been using these quite a lot and the highs are no longer as loud. From what I could find there is one damper for the highs installed. The exterior grill was squeaky clean with absolutely no sign of grime, but I figured out maybe...

    URBANFUN YBF-ISS014 Impressions thread

    Got my YBF-ISS014. So far nothing stands out to me about these and don't see myself picking them over any of my other more expensive sets. Compared to Blon, I don't enjoy them near as much. Might have some areas where they appear technical superior, like a sharper treble which also makes them...

    FiiO FH5 - Quad Driver Hybrid In-Ear Monitors || Knowles Balanced Armature Drivers

    Was it the whole IEM that failed or only a BA out of 3? I think mine is also dying cause one side is missing some highs

    LG V50 ThinQ Smartphone

    How's the equalizer on this phone? I see that there is no root yet and I need to use Viper4Android or DSP. I can live without impulse response and other settings, I think, but I still need a real EQ. Anyone who used a play store EQ knows there is no comparation with V4A, not even close. So how...

    BEST VALUE ''around 100-300$'' CHIFI & NEWCOMERS IEM with REFERENCE List (no BIG brands here)

    For me, the FH5 with the 3k peak dropped a few dB is still my favorite. Bass is outstanding, not even something like Sony N3 can match it. It's the only set I've heard with vocals without any sibilance while having more energy in the highs than something like E4000 or H40 which I find bit...

    Can sound quality diminish?

    Unless you get a new pair to compare them side by side there's no way you remember how they sounded a year ago. Hell, I wouldn't trust my memory from one day over the other. That's why I don't trust burn-in talk either, I had quite a few new IEMs to compare them with old versions of so called...
