    Hey everyone! I just posted my full detailed review of the DQSM Hermit. Feel free to check it out if you want to hear my thoughts on it. Overall I was impressed, but would not recommend it for the $29 asking price. https://www.head-fi.org/showcase/dqsm-hermit.25212/reviews#review-26057

    Review by 'NeonHD' on item 'DQSM Hermit'

    When you hear the name "DQSM" it probably sounds like some random chi-fi brand that you probably couldn't care less about. That was my initial reaction when hearing about the DQSM Hermit, but I decided to take the bullet anyway and try it out for myself. The good news is that the hermit...

    As a guy who swears by KZ's old budget offerings, I've held off buying any of KZ's new generation of IEMs..... until now that is. Behold, the KZ EDX, my first modern KZ IEM. At $7 US, it sits at a very cheap price-point, but does it sound more than what its cheap price suggests? FIRST...

    Hey guys, I just unboxed the Kbear KS1 (CAD $25) and spent some time listening to them and A/B'ing with my other IEMs. So finally as promised (@WendyLi ) here are my first impressions. SOUND Overall I'd describe the sound as warm v-shaped (or L-shaped). Dunno what people are talking about...

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    Hey guys just a very general question, what are some of the best sub-$500 IEMs for soundstage and imaging? My current best IEMs for soundstage and imaging are the TRI I3, LZ A6, and Toneking T88K. Looking for an IEM that at least has equal or better imaging (sound positioning) than the T88K...

    Hey everyone, I just did an unboxing and first impressions video on the Kbear TRI I3. Spent a lot of time working on it and making it look cinematically shot. Would be grateful for anyone to check it out! P.S. To anyone wondering, this was actually recorded inside my university, which I...

    Really? Because the majority of people I've talked to actually find the ED9's treble to be too much with the bronze filters. I think you probably just prefer a different treble tuning style.

    It may be more comfortable, but I've heard that TWS earbuds (the ones without any sort of stem or hook) are more prone to falling out of some people's ears.

    Nice to see you got the pro version. Just ordered mines a week ago, though I wish I had waited it out a bit more as right after buying it for CAD $74, another listing brought it down to $60 with coupons. I've owned like 5 pairs of BT20/BT20S, and each pair ended up breaking eventually at the...

    Hey guys I recently did a cool short unboxing video on the KZ ZS3E, feel free to check it out! As for the IEMs themselves, well, let's just say the ZS3 is pretty bad in today's chi-fi standards. But 3 years ago I'm sure they would've been considered decent. The only thing that isn't bad...

    Review by 'NeonHD' on item 'TRN M10'

    TRN M10 Review Good, but not really. INTRODUCTION TRN is no foreigner in the budget IEM game, but is its new $13 M10 a gem or just another average budget IEM? Well, the title basically says it all, but let me explain everything. UNBOXING ▲ Comes in the typical TRN box, nothing fancy but...

    Hey guys, is it technically possible to do an MMCX mod on the KZ ED9? I mean the casing is metal so if the MMCX plug doesn't fit then I'd have to drill it wider. BTW I was reading some of the posts on this thread and wanted to reply to one but then I realized that it was from 2014 😂😂

    TRN M10 First Impressions / Review The M10 is a newly released budget IEM from TRN. I finally had the chance today to unbox the TRN M10 and try it out. UNBOXING Luckily, I received my 2-pin TRN BT20S on the same day as the M10. What a perfect combo. Unboxing was the typical TRN experience...

    Just a mini rant, I absolutely HATE thephonograph website. I think I said this here before, but I hate it with a passion!!! The site is littered with affiliate links EVERYWHERE. Literally every single hyperlinked text leads me to Amazon or Aliexpress. All I ever wanted was to see their review...

    To answer my own question, just saw this in the description page. And the reviews are pretty much saying how sibilant it is, so yep that's the ED4 we all love and hate.

    Did the KZ ED4 ever get revised? They still seem to be selling on AE, wonder if it's just an old batch.

    I HAVE ASCENDED! This was back from AE's Anniversary sale, luckily I managed to get the LZ A6 from $303 all the way down to $253 ($50 discount!!). It was such a good deal so I bought it in a heartbeat. Initially I was planning on buying the TRI I3 during the anniversary sale, but after...

    Same, I got it off of ebay too. You can now buy a new V30 on eBay for around $200, or a used one in excellent condition for around $150. Audio aside, the V30 is still one of the best smartphones you can get for value. You still get a reasonably fast chip, a great camera, waterproofing, and of...

    Yep I just realized that after reading the Hiby Help Center. But ultimately it was a firmware update that solved this issue.
