    Tripowin x HBB 'Mele' - Impressions Thread

    I've imported the same settings in Peace (see pic) as the EQ preset in Q5K. So yes, the bass is way down and the sound is much brighter... But if I set the 42hz and 158hz to 0, the sound is actually a little more "lively" detail wise. Crispier.

    The Qudelix-5K thread

    Qudelix 5k newbie here. Tried searching before posting, but couldn't find anything about my issue. I use a usb-c to lightning cable, using the 5k as a USB DAC (24bit/96khz - Apple Music Lossless) with my iPhone 12. When pressing the play/pause button (blue upper) on the 5K, it automatically...

    And you have no problems at all with the Geminis, regarding "snap, crackle and pops"?!?! My new pair, second one, are as bad as the first. Far worse left side, and unusable with ANC High On. It must be something anatomical in my left ear canal then... ? :(

    Tripowin x HBB 'Mele' - Impressions Thread

    Can this be used for cleaning? Has saved my Airpods Pro several times. - One time the mic in the right bud were blocked, and people said sound were muffled. Now after using patafix it's as new. (tested also with voice recorder) - Occasionally I lose bass, and the ear tip fit test becomes yellow...

    Tripowin x HBB 'Mele' - Impressions Thread

    Think I will buy the Qudelix. Less expensive, and will cover my needs with LDAC etc. Also read reviews and trust your recommendation. Can you give some insights regarding BT range? Can I move away from my Fiio BTA30 without any connectivity issues? (the Sony WF-1000XM4 is hopeless... ) Do you...

    Thanks. Yes, I guess you're right about the air pressure change. Most likely what's causing it. When using smaller tips, and not getting a good seal (Gemini medium silicone tips for example), this problem is almost non excisting. I know about the Apple service program. Mine is produced...

    Tripowin x HBB 'Mele' - Impressions Thread

    Thanks :) What tips do you use? A bit off topic: Do you like the Qudelix-5k? A serious alternative to the new BTR5 and Ifi I guess? What would you buy today?

    Tripowin x HBB 'Mele' - Impressions Thread

    Got my Tripowin x HBB Mele today. First impression is very good. Amazing fit, no driver flex (I hate that), looks good and sounds better than all my expensive TWS (Even the Devialet Gemini at $300) And still I have just tested with the lightning to 3.5mm adapter on my iPhone 12... I found the M+...

    Sony WH-1000XM4 discussion and reviews

    Been experiementing with Sony WH-1000XM4, Fiio BTA30 with LDAC, Peter's Equalizer APO Configurator Extension, BlueStacks with Apple Music Lossless on Windows 10. Wow, who could've thought the XM4s could sound this good :) Used AutoEQ settings (Fixed band), from Github (jaakkopasanen).

    Thanks for your answer. Yes it's extreme, and very strange. ANC Low works quite well, especially with the Flexifit. Almost no noise with chewing/moving etc. But with silicone and ANC High, it's extremely bad, and FAR worse with the left bud. (edit) So strange that there no noise what so ever...

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

    If you have read my last posts, I guess your post is a little ironic? If not, please read my posts about the challenges the Geminis give me... I can't use the Final tips due to the noise I get with ANC on, and especially silicone tips. Otherwise, the sound quality is really awesome. I think...

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

    Ok. Regarding the Devialet Geminis... It's not driver flex... Because there's no noise when chewing, running, jumping with any tips when noise cancellation is OFF. ANC Low has less "driver flex'ish" noise than with ANC High. I have almost no noise on the right side with any mode or tip, but...

    The Geminis sound great, but my God... the driver flex with almost all tips are AWFUL! How can you guys rate these on top of your list? They are ok with foam, but the foams I have, limit sound quality compared to silicone and also the Symbio by Mandarine. The Symbio sound really great, but the...

    The included tips in medium didn't give me a 100% seal/fit, and I felt the buds moved in my ear. If I try the original L, I get the annoying sound you describe. I have the Final Type E large. Will try later. Got the Geminis yesterday and haven't tested much yet. But when they're in place, they...

    What tips are you using with the Devialet Gemini? (that also fit in the charging case)

    I put a new set of large Comply TW-200-C tips on my "first TWS love", Lypertek Tevi, as well. Man they sound good, and they still assert themselves very well compared to all my new ones. I think they will be my walking/running/work out -buds for a long time to come, with their ipx7, battery...

    I can get a pair of used Geminis for about $255 (NOK 2200,-). It was bought in March. Any hardware updates since then, or just firmware? Sadly it lacks the original packaging, but everything that came with it is included. "Safe" to buy? They cost about $400 (NOK 3490,-) new in store here :O...

    Happy to help. There's a similar setting under Accessibility - Airpods on my Apple TV 4k.

    I'm quite impressed with Apple Music and Airpods Pro on iOS15 with Spatial Audio. Wider soundstage, better separation, deeper and punchier? bass, mids/vocals more from in front (almost like they are standing in front of you singing). Used this settings: (see pics) Edit: The Spatial Audio head...

    My Beats Flex sound on par, or even better than my most expensive TWS, the MW08S. So still not there yet. :)

    A little sunshine story from my Airpods Pro :) Started to get yellow fit test again, bass totally gone with ANC set to off, on my 3rd set of APP. (manufactured 01/21) Also the right mic were very bad compared to the left. People I talked to complained, and I also noticed it when using the...

    Yes, right now there's no dust cover mounted. Sound is better without, no doubt about it. (again, in my ears :) )
