BEST Sub-100$ BUDGET EARPHONES - Chi-fi, Obscure brands and impressions sharing-REFERENCE LIST

    IMHO the DT6 for the cheap price is a great pair of IEMs. The soundstage/details/instrument separation are quite good. I think a lot of people who complain about it are comparing it to higher priced IEMs and also they are not using an amp with it. The DT6 piezo drivers which take care of the treble range require quite a lot of power for it to truly shine. So just plugging the DT6 into a smartphone ain't doing it justice.
    My only small gripe about it is that instruments like wind and string instruments don't sound tonally correct but if you are not using it for orchestral/classical style genres, it may not be so evident. YMMV.

    I just compare today.

    Ep10 are more bassy, less impact, more dark and clearly less details.

    The BLON have less sub bass butv stay deep, clearly more punchy bass, more neutral mid with better treble

    On metal music, ep10 is boring, slow and voices are muffled. They have lack of treble and too sub bass comparing to BLON

    But I understand that you say, they have a render which is similar,

    EP10 is true Basshead IEM.

    Reviews out of Japan have the Blon as a fairly neutral balanced iem with a slight emphasis on being bright/treble. but have not seen any graphs yet. Also saying that the Blon was tuned by TFZ. Anyone know more about that?

    This is my first post on here in months. Fell away from the hobby for a few months but got suckered in by the BLON and the Semkarch CNT 1. A carbon nanotube double!

    Anyway they've both ignited the touchpaper again for me.

    Don't want to say much until I've had then a bit longer but agree with neutral to bright description for the BLON.

    This is after changing the tips to wide bore foams as it was nigh on impossible for me to get a seal with the stock tips due to the design.

    Just got the Semkarch today and REALLY like them on m first listen too.

    So I compare Yinyoo V2 which is neutral with slight boost in mid bass

    The render is more natural, voice are natural too with Good place in scene, they are brighter too. More colored than V2 but better separation and better stereo.

    I prefer the BLON but they are less neutral than v2 but I prefer them. It's clearly a good first Iem ! Just not compatible with trn bt20 due to design. The BT3 it's ok. And the stock tips are useless IMG_20190724_152730.jpg

    Hello friend, I’d hate to see the mods delete your post. Please edit your product links and remove the referral portion (it is against HeadFi rules).

    Like this:

    F1 for $26: https://es.aliexpress.com/item/33013184490.html

    New KB06 for $22: https://es.aliexpress.com/item/4000011159572.html

    That’s true of all links, like Amazon, Aliexpress, etc.

    Even though I need it like a hole in the head, I wish I had ordered the Blon when it was that fukubukuro intro price during the Aliexpress spring sale.

    It looks really nice, and I actually like the EP10, so I’m sure I’d like the Blon based on the sound description.

    Done, thanks for letting me know.

    I follow this forum for years now but never really participated.
    Also, I never thanked you for fixing my ZS3, years ago. :wink:

    You’re welcome, friend!

    Also, we love it when people switch from ‘lurk’ mode to ‘participation’ mode. I lurked for years myself, before I was comfortable enough to start posting :)

    That goes for all you other lurkers out there reading this! Your opinion and full participation is welcome with open arms, no matter what your audio experience level, your mastery of the English language (or not), etc.

    We all have a common love here - the enjoyment of music on audio gear. And the community is richer the more people participate.
  12. TechnoidFR
    I think too. They are really nice. If you want you can order with my code on miss audio for 30$
    Or ask him for a review

    Oh and the new revonext is ordered too !

    NEX202? NEX602?

    Update: Good lord, the prices of those 2 new NEX models sure jumped up. $65 and $135?? That’s quite a far cry from all of their previous models.

    Either Revonext were breaking even on the previous models (which were a tremendous value for the cost, especially for the copper steampunk-looking one), or they’re raking us over the coals on these new models.

    Either way, I’m at least glad we can openly talk about the 2 new NEX models on HeadFi (vs all of the old models which are banned for discussion).
