    you're welcome. regular 2pin, thanks god (another adapter saved).
    there are other manufacturers who do it using mmcx, but this artisan inspired me more confidence.

    For what it's worth, I ordered a pair of the Semkarch CNT-1 (yes, the name sounds ridiculous).

    I hope they sound better with burn in. It has more smoother bass than a KZ but the sound signature at first glance sounds like a KZ. They are cheaply made compared to a KZ too. The cable also sucks just like everyone else says. Lol.

    If you don't have a CNT-1, don't bother?

    The price of the Semkarch CNT-1 was originally $95. A rip off at that price definitely as KZ brings way better value to the iem game.

    Thank you, I didn't know that.
    When I click on something I want to make into a link a little blue blob appears giving me the option to copy or paste. Nothing happens when I click on the post number!

    Really interested in these and love how they look. Do you know how they sound in comparison to the ER4s?

    Am I the only one that doesn't mind the cable? It's already a huge step up from KZ's copper stock cable that I got with the ZS5 and the ear hooks are much nicer that the one that came with the AS10.

    I'd disagree that there's anything about them that looks or feel cheaply made. Don't get me wrong, I'm as much a fan of KZ as anyone else, but these shouldn't be written off

    I agree. I have no plans to change the cable. on my Semkarch. The hooks work well and the case is large enough to keep them in the shape that I have set. I am enjoying them with the gold filters.

    I will wait for the post in which you declare your love for them. :)

    Hi could you compare the DD IEMs: Blon BL-03 vs Semkarch CNT1 vs Toneking Ninetails? Would be interested to hear your impressions.
  12. mbwilson111

    I have not had enough time with the CNT1 or the Blon to do that yet. I can say that I like them all. If someone told me today that I could only keep one of the three, I would keep the NineTails...but that one is the most expensive.

    I am sure there are others who can comment.

    Its the same cable you get for $300 on LZ flagship IEMs. It measure 0.7ohm which is decent. Its lightweight and after awhile loosens up fine. I used the cable for like 7-8 months before I went balanced.

    i don't own any ER4. but compared to ER-6i, it stands great, even better. so guess they have done a great work, very near to ER4 (i chose ER4P built) probably.
    of course, you don't get the certified measurements (frequency response, accurate sensitivity), accessories, and excellent QC, ety provides.

    So it's basically er4 clone, for 50 dollars? lol
