    I've ordered Tennmak Trio (earhead only) and should get them in 3-4 weeks. Any one here who has them and can share few words of wisdom on how they sound, what sort of cable and tips should I pair them with?

    NiceHCK NX7 vs Moondrop Kanas Pro.png

    Since we're talking about the Kanas Pro, which is one of my favorite IEMs, the NX7s are a little harder to move, as you can see from the graph. And the bass and sub bass of the Kanas Pro, are not huge, but they are divine. The NX7 seems to be more focused on the details, but the balance and timbre of the Kanas Pro have dazzled me.

    Would the length not effect the sound also tho? (Don't know enough about these things).

    Need to find my Trinity Audio Deltas... think they had different lengths.
  5. Slater
    Yes, length and diameter of nozzle affects sound. That’s exactly why I propose that they can be used as dual purpose tuning filters as well.

    Just ordered BLON BL-03 and TRI i4 (1DD+Knowles BA) from Amazon. Should be interesting!

    Philips QC totally sucks. Or the seller had terrible batch of SHE7000. Top one is one I received earlier and the bottom is another one, and there is no consistancy in the response. I wish both sides were responsed like the left side on sample one. I've measured Sony MH755, and they've been consistent, but these on the other hand...

    The SHE35xx series have been rock solid for me for decades (literally)

    Chinese companies aren't going through the effort to make even more little metal parts. At best they would provide longer tips to extend length or put in the little spacer O-rings to use. Japanese have more design chops and many have used the two post method on the bore where you have lips to stop the tip out more and can push it in to the second position. One set of longer two post filters that can be used in both longer and shorter configuration seems doable but the Chi-Fi scene(in general outside of a few) just isn't as inventive as I would like. :)

    I’ve noticed that there’s 2 types of SHE7000 - one with a plastic back and one with an aluminum back.

    I wonder what the difference is? Is one type genuine and the other type counterfeit? Or different factory? Or cost cutting design changes? Or is there some other explanation for the difference?

    Plastic backs:

    Aluminum backs:

    Also, there’s 4 totally different package styles, all (supposedly) SHE7000:

    This 4th package looks to be for an Asian domestic market (maybe Japanese or Chinese), so I’m not counting it with the 3 global packages above:

    Indeed. I have gotten couple of those white ones (the ones I've posted measurements of) from the same seller. I just did some research, and it seems there were various versions that came out. The way they label these various versions are like so: SHE7000WT/28 SHE7000/10 .. etc.

    This is the one I got, and looks identical including the packaging. Looking at the lesser packing, plastic backing instead of metal, they must have cut cost at some point, and likely QC has suffered as well. This video should be proof that it is a legit unit as it was sold in the store Ross. It seems stores like Ross are places you find these discount deals on cheap iems that didn't get sold at the store initially in stock.

    What is really odd about the product in the video is, why is the packaging in Spanish, but being sold by Ross? Very odd..

    That’s exactly the one I got as well. Same package, same color, etc. I haven’t opened them up or listened to them yet. Hopefully I’ll have time this week to check them out.

    I’ll also mention that I’m a tiny bit disappointed that Philips included 3 different color tips. It will make it hard to identify them in my tip rolling collection. I anticipate that the 3 different colors will seem like 3 different tips when mixed into all my other tips. When in reality they’re the same tip just 3 different sizes.

    Yeah, it's weird, the different colored tips... Makes no sense.

    I found a SHE9000 measurement on Golden Ears, and look at the channel imbalance. It's terrible! It must be that Philips have terrible QC. I don't think I have seen worse channel mismatch than these Philips.


    I understand it's cheap, but there are others that the measurements are consistent like MH755, which you can get for $5-6. Even KZ (ZS5) although there is a large pit in the response, the channels are still well matched.

    Here's a good one. Channels aligned.
