    Great looking design. They finally got the feedback from the BL-03 about the short nozzle distance!

    The discovery thread!

    I was able to get the LZ A6 down to 165 with US tax of 8%, doing some nutty coupon-fu and waiting for a $12 discount code at the end of the sale.

    That was a very positive review. It looks like the Kbear Lark is $30 on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/****-Cancelling-Headphones-Earphones-mic/dp/B07D7X19C1 Can you provide a bit more comparison to it peers in the price range and some higher priced ones that it equals or tops?

    Wait, @Slater, are you saying that the Estron EST is similar to the (KZ) ZST? Anyway, given the quality of the C631, I am getting an EST as well.

    I call that sound "organic". The Blon BL-03 and my (now broken) Toneking nine tails have that special organic sound, where you get into the music without resotting to over-analyzing what you are hearing.

    Actually, the KZ BA10 can be had for around $46 right now. It may even have been a bit cheaper earlier this week during the Ali sale. I am tempted, but I already have so many KZs and an LZ A6 mini on the way...

    That is an interesting perspective. Do you mind sharing why you prefer the BA10 over the KBear Diamond. We often think that just because a model is new and has positive reviews it outclasses "older" well-received units.

    Do you mean KZ ZS5? There are big differences between v1's and v2's.

    It's called a spouse... My wife is a psychologist and she has all kinds of technical terms for my headphone (uhm) "collection". :)

    I have the CNT-1, so a more balanced version (LZ Z05A) would suit me well.

    It's whatever puts a smile on your face and makes you tap your toes along to (In my case "Jungleland" by Bruce Springsteen as I write this). The gear just fades in the background.

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    This is why many stereo systems of the past had a "Loudness" button to emphazise the low end at lower volumes.

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    My source for The Blon BL-03 is a Pioneer XDP-30R DAP using a balanced cable. I haven't tested it to see if it is hard to drive, but the reviews have not indicated this. While it is great at Acoustic/Jazz, I would rather say that the reproduction is Hi-Fi in the truest sense of the word: Great...
