    In the Netherlands we have the Action, an ultra low budget store which keeps on bringing new generic brand earphones and headphones onto their shelves. Most of the time, I can't find the same shape on AliExpress, even though it 90% sure must be built in China. It tickles me to buy that crap so much. :D

    I just had to dig out my TD08's and listening now, good soundstage. I remember trying a lot of tips till I was happy. I think they sound ok for what they cost. Mind you I have been enjoying the KZ AS06 over the weekend so what do I know :)

    Just want to get the groups opinion on this - I recently ordered a set of RevoNext QT2S from the Official RevoNext store on Aliexpress. I understand that there's some issue about discussing the QT2S but my issue is about the supplied cable and the responsiveness of the RevoNext staff for their online store.

    I received the IEMs a few days ago and recently noticed that the 3.5mm plug isn't shiny but seems to have some kind of coating on it. When I plug it into my Cayin N3 and wiggle the plug, the sound cuts in and out on the IEM. If I put another headphone on the N3, I can wiggle the plug all I want and it's rock solid. I believe that the coating on the plug is causing the issue. I sent RevoNext via the Aliexpress website a message and a picture of the 3.5mm plug in question asking them about the issue back on June 28th and have heard nothing back from them - accoridng to AliExpress's messaging system, they have read the message a few days ago. I pinged them again today to ask if anyone was there to respond to my issue. I could try to remove the coating (which I believe is some kind of corrosion) but I don't want RevoNext coming back and stating because I removed the coating without asking RevoNext first that my warranty is now void.

    Here's the picture I sent them. You can clearly see that coating I'm talking about... you can also see where the N3's jack contacted the plug as well.

    So, two questions -

    1. For those with this IEM, did your RevoNext supplied cable come in such condition?
    2. Is the level of support from RevoNext on Aliexpress like this all of the time?

    I can’t speak about that particular IEM (due to the link in my signature), but from a generic troubleshooting standpoint I would personally just toss that problematic cable in the trash and use something else. It’s not worth messing with.

    There’s a million cable options that will work, because that IEM has a removable cable. You can use almost any stock or upgrade cable, including KZ, TRN, BQEYZ, NiceHCK, Kinboofi, etc. You can spend anywhere from $3-$100, or just use a stock KZ or TRN cable from one of your other IEMs (is you have any others).
